Twinkies are back, though they may be a bit smaller than you remember.
The new boxes hitting shelves this week list the cream-filled yellow sponge cakes as having 270 calories and a weight of 77 grams for two cakes, or 135 calories and 38.5 grams for one cake.
Right before it went out of business, the predecessor company told The Associated Press that Twinkies were 150 calories per cake. Photos of past boxes online show the weight of each cake as 42.5 grams.
A spokeswoman for Hostess, Hannah Arnold, said in an email Monday that the the predecessor had changed the size in "mid-2012." That would mean it happened in the months leading up to the bankruptcy, as the company was trying to stay afloat financially.

Twinkies' longer shelf, which AP reported earlier this month, was also a change the predecessor company decided on just before it went bankrupt, Arnold said. The 45-day shelf life, up from 26 days, was implemented Nov. 1.
