Twinkies to last longer than ever

Posted: Updated:

Twinkies return to supermarket shelves next week, and they'll last longer than ever before.

Hostess Brands LLC says the spongy yellow cakes will have a shelf life of 45 days. That's nearly three weeks longer than the previous shelf life of 26 days.

A Hostess representative says the change actually happened on November 1, but the company went out of business shortly after that. So the Twinkies most people are familiar with had a shorter life span.
Hostess declined to say what changes were made to increase shelf life.
