Last Twinkies Shipment Arrives

The last Twinkies shipment will be sold at Jewel-Osco supermarkets in the Windy City


Twinkiegeddon is truly upon us, as Hostess confirms the last shipment of the Hostess snack cakes arrives in Chicago today.

The final 20,000 boxes of Twinkies, Ding-Dongs and other Hostess products will be sold at select Jewel-Osco supermarkets in the Windy City, according to a company statement released Dec. 10.

"This is a one time, one shot basis," Jewel-Osco spokeswoman Karen May told the NBC affiliate in Chicago.

Twinkies and other Hostess snacks flew off the shelves last month after the 82-year-old company announced it was going out of business over a labor dispute.

The company had 36 bakeries nationwide.

A bankrupty judge ordered Hostess and the union to try mediation first, but they failed to reach an agreement.

A complete list of participating stores and when the Hostess products is available on the Jewel-Osco Facebook page.
