Attention junk-food junkies -- the wait is almost over. Twinkies will return to store shelves across the country in late July.
Michael Cramer, executive VP of Hostess Brands told NBC, "We expect to be making and selling in July. Probably the later half of the month before the product hits the stores."
The rest of Hostess snack offerings should be back in stores by August and September.
It was back in November that Hostess Brands was shuttered after a bitter battle with the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grin Millers International Union.
Now the company is making a comeback under new ownership, following its purchase by the hedge funds Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co. in April for $410 million.
