The company that went bankrupt after an acrimonious fight with its unionized workers last year is back up and running under new owners and a leaner structure. It says it plans to have Twinkies and other snack cakes back on shelves starting July 15.
Based on the outpouring of nostalgia sparked by its demise, Hostess is expecting a blockbuster return next month for Twinkies and other sugary treats, such as CupCakes and Donettes. The company says the cakes will taste the same but that the boxes will now bare the tag line "The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever."

Note: Hostess didn’t go bankrupt “after an acrimonious fight with unionized workers.” It picked a fight with its workers because it was going bankrupt thanks to bad management. See this story from last November by Michael Hilzick at the L.A. Times.
