Twinkies are making an early comeback at Wal-Mart stores.

The world's largest retailer said it started selling the snack cakes at about 1,600 stores on Friday and that about 3,000 of its 4,000 stores across the nation should have them by Sunday morning, a day before Hostess had said the cakes would start hitting shelves nationwide.

By late next week, stores also will have Hostess Mini Muffins and fried Fruit Pies, said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Veronica Marshall. Coffee Cakes, Ho Hos, Orange CupCakes, Suzy Qs and Zingers will be available by August. Sno-Balls will arrive in the fall.

“We've been working with them now for several months to have them available exclusive early,” Marshall said.
