Banana Twinkies have finally arrived!

We've been trying for a while, and now we can finally tell you that Banana Twinkies
are in stock. While Hostess sells more than half a billion Twinkies each year, these banana flavoured ones have been surprisingly hard to get hold of. We've finally done it, but stocks are extremely limited so get yours before they go!

Fans of the golden, creme-filled cakes might be surprised to learn that they were originally banana flavoured when they were first launched more than 80 years ago. However, during World War II a banana shortage forced Hostess to replace the banana creme with a vanilla filling. The original flavour made a few promotional come-backs, most notably to celebrate the release of King Kong, and they're back again in cool retro boxes!

And it's not just banana Twinkies that are back in stock, but plenty of other fresh Hostess products like Sno Balls, Ding Dongs, Strawberry & Chocolate Cupcakes, Zingers and Powdered Donettes (a favourite in the Stateside office!) Get your hands on all the Hostess goodies right here.
