As many of you may know, Hostess, the maker of many snacks treats, including Twinkies went bankrupt and closed up shop. Fortunately, portions of Hostess were sold off during the bankruptcy proceedings and some of Hostess's former products have returned...including Twinkies.

In theory, the formula for making them (ingredients and baking) were supposed to remain the same. Now, to be sure, the Ervin household doesn't devour a lot of Twinkies or other snack cakes, as evidenced that the box of Twinkies purchased before they went bankrupt survived half full in the cupboard until after the release of the new Twinkies.
The opinion or results all agreed:
- The old Twinkies taste just a bit sweeter than the new Twinkies.
- The new Twinkies are a little less dense or solid, being more cake-like than the old Twinkies.
- Other than that, the overall taste is largely the same.
Finally, while the point of eating Twinkies has little to do with nutrition, I've included that below--for those who might be interested.
