Long Lines, Empty Shelves: Twinkies Make Sweet Comeback

Twinkie lovers rejoice! After an eight-month break, the sweet treat is back on store shelves nationwide Monday -- unless it's not.

Some stores in the Tulsa area have already sold out of the Hostess-brand snack, including the Walmart in Bixby. 

KTUL.com was told they had a line of people purchasing the snacks this morning. 

The Reasor's in Bixby, however, still have some in stock if you want to satisfy your craving.

Several major retailers started selling Twinkies a few days before the official return, unveiling collectible "first batch" boxes on Friday.

Hostess shut down production of its sweets last November, after filing for bankruptcy.

A private equity firm bought the company out of bankruptcy, paving the way for the Twinkie's return
