One thing that I have learned in my short time here, do the monotonous things early to be able to get out and play later. That’s why we do our grocery shopping early Saturday mornings.

This past weekend was just the same. We got up Saturday, checked the coupons, grabbed the list and headed out to make the rounds.

Sometimes it seems robotic when we shop: bread, milk, eggs, cheese, lettuce, twinkies…wait... what?

That’s right! It was just like running into an old flame from high school…my knees grew week, my heart was thumping....I ran into an entire display of twinkies! They are back in Billings! And two days earlier than promised. I am sure that my blood sugar rose 50 points just looking at the box.

Now with all this excitement there is one thing to be aware of -the twinkie is smaller. According to the box the new cakes are listed at 135 calories and 38.5 grams for one cake. Right before it went out of business, the predecessor company said Twinkies were 150 calories per cake. But they are back!

And even better news, all of twinkies friends are coming back too. Hostess says that fruit pies, ho-hos, orange cupcakes, suzy qs, and zingers will be making their return early next month. And if you are a fan of sno-balls – they come back in the fall!

Feel that? The axis of the world just rotated back into position.
