Most Wal-Marts to sell Twinkies by Sunday

BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

NEW YORK — Twinkies are making an early comeback at Wal-Mart stores, and they won’t be frozen beforehand.

The world’s largest retailer says it started selling the snack cakes Friday at about 1,600 stores and that about 3,000 of its 4,000 U.S. stores should have them by Sunday morning, a day before Hostess had said the cakes would start hitting shelves nationwide.

By late next week, stores will also have Hostess Mini Muffins and fried Fruit Pies, said Wal-Mart spokesman Veronica Marshall.

Coffee Cakes, Ho Hos, Orange CupCakes, Suzy Qs, and Zingers will follow in August. Sno-Balls will arrive in the fall.
