Twinkies, Ding Dongs, And Other Sweet Hostess Treats On The Cheap At Big Lots

twinkiesEveryone knows that when the Zombie apocalypse hits we will all be spending our days and nights searching for our one true love – Twinkies. Rest easy friends, because we now have one more place to find the ooey-gooey treats when the undead start roaming the streets. Big Lots announced Tuesday it will begin selling the sweet treats at a discount.

The Columbus, Ohio-based discount retailer will now be home to discount Twinkies, Ding Dongs, HoHos and other beloved Hostess treats, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Hostess rose from the ashes of bankruptcy to once again produce the snack cakes in July, but the company’s 600 outlet stores did not reopen. That’s where Big Lots saves the day for consumers who like a tasty treat and a good deal.

Officials with Big Lots say a varied assortment of Hostess products will be stocked weekly at stores across the country. The products will have a two-week shelf life and sell for as much as 40% off the suggested retail price.

    I bought 3 packs of Twinkies the week they came out and they were all green and moldy. I’ll never eat a twinkie again. I complained at the Wonder website and 8 months later they sent me coupons for free stuff. Like I said, green Twinkies kind of turned me off.

      I don’t know….at least now it’s obvious that Twinkies can go bad and aren’t some mythological, indestructible food that never spoils and will outlast the cockroaches after the nuclear holocaust. #silverlining
