Hostess Twinkies Make Early Return to Walmart Stores

twinkiesLOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Hostess Twinkies made a surprise appearance on store shelves across the country on Friday, three days ahead of their scheduled comeback.

The iconic treats were found Friday at some local Walmart, Ralphs and Food 4 Less stores.

Most markets were supposed to be full stocked by Monday, the date of the official relaunch, company officials said.

Hostess went bankrupt late last year.

Twinkies and other Hostess cakes were sold to private equity firms Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co.
