Jewel-Osco said it is getting what it believes is the final shipment of Twinkies in the country, with more than 25,000 boxes of Hostess products available Tuesday morning in stores.
The company says its shipment includes 20,000 boxes of Twinkies and 5,000 boxes of Ding Dongs, Zingers and Orange Cupcakes.
"We received a call from our Hostess rep saying that one of the plants in Georgia had some left and would we want any," said Mike Siemenas, a spokesman for Jewel parent Supervalu. "We said we'd take the entire shipment."
