Jewel gets last Twinkies

CHICAGO, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Jewel-Osco said it has received what is believed to be the last shipment of Hostess baked goods, which will be available in select Chicago-area stores Tuesday.

The order includes 20,000 boxes of Twinkies and 5,000 boxes of Ding Dongs, Zingers and Orange Cupcakes, the Chicago Tribune reported.

"We received a call from our Hostess rep saying that one of the plants in Georgia had some left and would we want any," said Mike Siemenas, a spokesman for Jewel parent Supervalu. "We said we'd take the entire shipment."

The baked goods will be sold at regular price, with no limits, while supplies last, the Tribune said.

Supplies, however, may not last long; one Jewel store reported having at least 10 customers waiting to buy Twinkies before the store opened at 7 a.m. and sold out shortly thereafter.

Siemenas said other stores reported selling out within an hour of opening as well.
