Twinkies are back, and smaller

New boxes of Twinkies hitting shelves this week list my favorite spongy yellow cake as having 270 calories and a weight of 77 grams for two cakes, or 135 calories and 38.5 grams per cake.  Right before they disappeared, Twinkies were 150 calories per cake.  Photos of past boxes online indicate the weight to have been 42.5 grams per.  Also, Twinkies now have a shelf life of 45 days – up from 26 days.
