From CNN:

Good news for Twinkies hoarders. Not only are Twinkies coming back to store shelves on Monday, but once there they’ll have almost twice the shelf life the old Twinkies did.

The new Hostess Brands, which bought the rights and recipe to make Twinkies and other Hostess snacks out of bankruptcy court earlier this year, says that when Twinkies return they’ll have a 45-day shelf life. That’s significantly longer than the 26-day shelf life they previously had.
