A popular confection has been resurrected.

The "Twinkie" is back!

The snack cake has returned to store shelves nationwide completing its comeback.

Walmart and other major retailers got an early shipment of Twinkies on Friday.

Twinkie production was suspended in November when Hostess filed for bankruptcy.

Two private equity firms bought the Hostess brand.

That means Twinkies and other tasty treats, like Zingers, Ding Dongs and HoHos, are also back in stores.
