Hostess has big plans up its high-fructose corn syrup sleeves. The snack company may soon release frozen deep-fried Twinkies to grocery store freezer aisles, according to the New York Post.Hostess, run by Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co., is also rumored to be reworking its snack lineup to include a bread line of bagels, tortillas, and English muffins.
According to the New York Post’s insider source, Hostess is also looking to expand the shelf life of their entire product lineup from 26 days to 65 days. That means your Twinkies and Ho-Hos will stay fresh for three whole months. How is that possible? Apparently by raising the acidity level of the products, which helps curtail microbial growth.
Not too long ago, we were reporting on the sad demise of the Twinkies. However, since 2013, the iconic Twinkies are back and here to stay. But will they succeed in fried-Twinkie form? Only time (and fans’ sugar rushes) will tell.
