Twinkies cereal coming to your breakfast bowl

Post has teamed up with Hostess to release Twinkies Cereal which will be available nationwide in late December.

The iconic snack that went through a shake-up seven years ago is headed to the supermarket breakfast aisle.

Post has teamed up with Hostess to release Twinkies Cereal.

The cereal replicates the taste and oblong shape of the golden-colored snack cake, the company said in a release.

The cereal will be available nationwide in late December.

“In developing a cereal version of the iconic Twinkies, our top priority was focused on delivering the great Twinkies flavor in each bite,” said a brand manager at Post. “We think fans will find that it not only tastes great with milk but also outside the bowl.”

It follows two other snack-cereal mashups between the two companies: Post Hostess Honey Bun and Donettes Cereal are already available.

Twinkies have been around for 90 years. The production of the snack was halted in 2012 when the Hostess company filed for bankruptcy. A new company was formed and a year later the snacks were back on the shelf with a renewed interest from the public.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
