Key Lime Slime-Filled Twinkies are the Next Great Ghostbusters Tie-In Snack
“Tell him about the Twinkie.” Retail merchandising company ENM Sales & Services recently unveiled Hostess’s new limited edition treat, Key Lime Slime Twinkies, a tie-in snack for the upcoming release of Ghostbusters. (Sadly, the new Twinkies aren’t 35 feet long, nor do they weigh 600 pounds, as described in the original 1984 comedy.)
Back in 2012, Hostess declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy and abruptly discontinued Twinkies and other tasty treats during those proceedings. But the Twinkie made a comeback in mid-2013, when private equity firms bought out the company and quickly resumed production.
There's no official word on just when the Key Lime Slime Twinkies will hit grocery store shelves. But we’re looking forward to enjoying one with a cold glass of Ecto Cooler, which also has Ghostbusters to thank for its rumored resurgence.
