People are cheering the return of Twinkies this month to store shelves.

A positive spin for people on diets who have that Hostess-treat craving is that Twinkies don’t have as many calories as they used to have. They have dropped from 150 calories per cake to 135 calories each.

They also last longer. Twinkies can stick around 45 days now, up from 26 days. The late night comedians should have fun with that.
