Hostess Says Snack Cake Demand Hits New Highs

Hostess Brands says demand for Twinkies and CupCakes is at a record high since the snack cakes returned to shelves less than three days ago.


Lori Silvey, assistant bakery manager, stocks the shelves with the first batch of Hostess Twinkies and Cupcakes that have arrived at Schnucks in Ballwin, Missouri on July 13, 2013. Hostess products are returning after a bankruptcy court approved the company's closure in November 2012, putting 15,000 workers out of a job. Hostess has reintroduced the Twinkie, Cupcake and doughnut lines so far with national rollout of the products on July 15. UPI/Bill Greenblatt
