Where are the Twinkies?

Huge hype about the re release of Twinkies and several other Hostess cakes. Well, they were supposed to be out, but I can't find them anywhere!!

I'm in Bergen County, and I've tried several ShopRites, Stop& Shop, A7P, and Kings. Nothing. Nada.

Where can one find these highly touted cakes that are apparently not on most supermarket shelves as of yet. Not up here, anyway.

      1. Thanks. However, there are no Walmarts or Wegmans in the Bergen County Area.

        How come all the hype and it's not on the regular supermarket shelves?

          Lodi has a Wal Mart. Also one on 59 in Rockland County.

            It's a little thing called production.....and last time I looked...both Garfield and Saddle Brook were part of Bergen County.

          2. I noticed that they're MIA too.
            Hardly matters though. Frankly, most of the knockoff versions are much better (particularly the ones TastyKakes offers).

            1. I'm midwest and I just got me some Hostess apple fruit pies and a box of Hostess Ho-Ho's on Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              The shelves were CLEANED OUT and I got the last box of Ho-Ho's. It was a Krogers.

              I did not get the 411 on the return thus I;m sitting there checking the date codes thinking the store bought year old stock. LOL.

              They taste the same as what they were.
              I applaud that.

                Apple pies! Ohh glory.

                Our local Shop Rite stores in Ocean County have the Twinkies.

                I am craving a PB & J on Wonderbread though.

                1. re: Jerseygirl111

                  No I was incorrect. There was no sign of Twinkies in the Shop Rite in Bayville or Toms River the past couple days.

              2. You might want to try Walgreens.

                1. The new Twinkies are good for you right?

                  1. I read somewhere that the new Twinkies will have a longer shelf life. Makes you wonder what they put in there for that to happen!

                      I've also read that this longer shelf life is due to their being frozen in transit to the the retailer- requiring a small retooling of the ingredients...not to mention the downsizing too.

                      1. re: retchef

                        ShopRite: NO. Made calls and/or visited personally ShopRite Pearl River, Northvale, Hillsdale, Emerson, New Milford, Englewood, Rochelle Park, Paramus. Not a Twinkie to be found!!
