Twinkies Return, Angelenos React

The world has gone eight months without a Twinkie. I think we’re all still OK. When Hostess shut down their plants last November, they sparked a frenzy of Ho-Ho hoarders. Today, the new Hostess releases Twinkies and chocolate cupcakes, the first two brands in a comeback that will roll out through the summer. The treats are no longer manufactured in Los Angeles, but the first batches arrived this weekend.  I was able to score a box of Twinkies and offered them to a cross-section of Angelenos. Here are their reactions.
