PIX11– Twinkies are making a comeback!

Hostess, the company that makes the delicious, all artificially flavored, cream-filled treat, is back up and running under new management after filing for bankruptcy last year.

The company says it plans to have Twinkies and other popular snack cakes back on shelves starting in mid-July.

Wonder Bread and Devil Dogs are also expected to make a comeback but under a different ownership.

This after the company received bids from separate buyers for the bread and snack cakes.

A four-week auction process will complete the bidding process.

Hostess will receive a $30 million loan from the sales agent Hilco during the liquidation process. It is expected to a take a year.
