CNN says Twinkies are returning to shelves on July 15th

Any bets on how long before stores aren't sold out of them lol? Will you buy a box now that they're back?

  • People are going to be racing into their local Walmarts to get them. No, I haven't had a Twinkie since I was a kid. No reason to start now.

  • I think it was all a marketing trick, like "New Coke", which sucked on purpose.

  • Haha right. I hadn't given them a thought in a years until they went out, at which point I kinda wanted one, but I knew they'd be back and now that they are I'm in no hurry for a box.

  • I'm not going to bother. I never liked their products anyway.

  • I have to be in the mood for one to eat them. Yes I will buy a box when the mood to eat one strikes again. There's no rush on it. I'm more craving the chocolate cream filled cupcake right now. There are lots of other brand substitutes so I'm good.

  • I'm not going to rush out to buy a box, but I may pick one up, sure. We never ate them all the time anyway, but like anything else, it's a little treat now and then, so at some point when I see them, I'll probably pick up a box.

  • I haven't bought or eaten Twinkies in years, so no rush here. I'm with 2autisticsmom- the choc. cream-filled cup cakes are pretty tasty. I'd by some of those before I'd buy Twinkies.

  • "I think it was all a marketing trick, like "New Coke", which sucked on purpose"

    From what I understand, the one company went bankrupt and another company bought out at least part of the old one, thus the reason for the return of Twinkies, lol

    I won't rush out and buy a box, no. I haven't had a Twinkie since I was a child, lol. I might eventually get one, just to share with my child something I remember from my childhood, but it's not a huge propriety. I have recipes where I can make cupcakes or cakes that taste like them if I get to wanting one, but it's not something I've really craved...

  • I'm not sure how long they will be sold out. Are there that many people that love those things enough to stalk grocery and convenience stores to buy them?

    I won't run out and buy them. I might let my kids get some for a treat if they want, but I won't be searching them out.

  • I wasn't sad when they left, and I really don't care there coming back.
