The Wait Is Over: Key Lime Slime Twinkies Are Here

Hostess teamed up with Sony Pictures to celebrate the release of the new ‘Ghostbusters’ movie

The Twinkies are filled with an artificially flavored key lime filling.

A few weeks back, Ecto Cooler was brought back to the market, and now Key Lime Slime Twinkies are officially here. Hostess Brands and Sony Pictures teamed up for the latter, a collaboration celebrating the theatrical release of Ghostbusters on July 15, 2016, according to a release.

The limited-edition Twinkies are filled with an “artificially flavored key lime creamy filling” and the packaging is green with green-colored slime oozing over the sides.

“It’s only natural for Hostess to participate in a partnership with Ghostbusters, given the Twinkie’s appearance in the original movie,” said Ellen Copaken, senior director of marketing at Hostess Brands, LLC. “Just like Twinkies, Ghostbusters has a loyal fan base that has remained passionate for generations. We hope fans are just as excited as we are to help bring this incredible franchise to life.”
