Americans almost left their couches in protest when Hostess announced they would no longer be making Twinkies eight months ago. Now, they're back on the shelves and sales have never been better. Like seven times better than their previous greatest sales record better.  Many retailers even sold out of their stock in just a few hours.

The iconic cream-filled snack food was brought back to life by the Metropolous brothers of Pabst Blue Ribbon comeback fame. The new age Twinkies are slightly smaller in size but production and sales of the treat have never been better.
