Twinkies may be smaller than people recall Published: July 15, 2013

Twinkies are back, but they may be a bit smaller than you remember, according to The Associated Press.

The AP reports the new owners of Hostess have leaner operating costs now that they’re no longer using unionized workers. It turns out the spongy yellow cakes may also be a little smaller than the last Twinkies people remember eating.

The new boxes hitting shelves list the cakes as having 270 calories and a weight of 77 grams for two cakes, or 135 calories and 38.5 grams for one cake, according to the AP.
