Thanks to the new movie hitting theaters in a little more than a month, Ghostbusters is having something of an economic moment right now. While we’re still waiting for the firehose of toys and figurines, we’re definitely not being disappointed in the junk food department. Last month we got Hi-C Ecto Cooler back, and now we’re getting slimed Twinkies to wolf down.
Oh, and credit to Hostess, or whoever owns Hostess these days — they didn’t just throw some neon green food coloring on that creme filling and call it a day. These Twinkies have their own Key Lime flavor, which I guess is less of a Ghostbusters tie-in, but we’ll allow it. Also, while we’re on the subject of sweets, how do we not have Stay Puft marshmallows we can buy yet? They don’t even have to be a different color, you can just put the name on the bag. It’s the easiest thing ever.
Anyway, the Ghostbusters Twinkies should be arriving in grocery stores from now until the movie hits theaters on July 15. I don’t know how long they’ll be available after that, but hey, nothing stopping you from stocking up and enjoying them for the next 30 years. As we all know, death does not apply to the Twinkie.
