Almost nine months ago the company went bankrupt after fighting with its unionized workers. It is now running under new structure and ownership. 

There are minor changes to the Twinkie itself – it will have a shelf life of 45 days, 26 days longer than before. The box the Twinkies come in now will now have the the tag line "The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever." The Twinkies taste and price will remain the same –$3.99 for a box of 10 Twinkies.
