From what I've heard, some will be shipped frozen from the warehouse to the stores and then set out on the shelves, that's how they'll get the extra days. So I guess that the goal is to have the time from warehouse to shelf cutting into shelf life. From what I understand they will be printed with a date and then frozen, just long enough to get to the stores, not long term freezing.

Longer shelf life? Didn't they already have a shelf life of over 20 years?

The local WallMart did not have them but the Kroger did.

I did not buy any just took a pic.

I don't know that I've ever had a Twinkie. Banana creme filling?

I enjoyed it. Seemed to have more filling than I remember, or maybe I'm remembering the knockoffs. Very soft and fresh. Not something that I'd buy on the regular, but a great taste of nostalgia.

IF my trivia is correct ... BEFORE WWII Twinkies had Banana crème filling BUT when the war started the soldiers got the fresh bananas SO the filling was changed.
