Chocolate Covered Twinkies Making a Comeback

See also

Hostess has decided to bring back a product that hasn't been around for about 15 years now, but one that will undoubtedly make junk food fans very happy with its return -- Chocolate Covered Twinkies!

Also known as the Chocodile, they were once only available on the West Coast, leaving the rest of the United States in a pit of despair. Now the entire nation can get their chocolate covered Twinkie fix without resulting to taking to the junk food black market, begging West Coast friends to send some boxes, or by picking up boxes during a brief trip to the Pacific Coast. There were some who were so desperate to get their hands on Chocodiles that they were paying $15 to $30 on the black market just for a single box that would otherwise have cost around $4 in the store. However, in the great Hostess death of 2012, even those on the West Coast were mourning the loss of Chocodiles. Not long after, in the summer of 2013, the company started to come back, and with it, the Chocodile.

They come in Fun Size, as well as in Banana Creme, Strawberry Creme, and Chocolate Creme flavors. Sadly, like its regular Twinkie counterpart, Chocodiles won't come in packages of two, but will be individually wrapped.

So many love the sweet confection that it even has its own Facebook page, which currently has 1,472 fans.

The retail price is about $3.99 for 9 little fun size Chocodiles, but chances are excited fans are going to pick up more than a box at a time. They're now available in grocery stores and convenience stores across the nation, so go grab a box!
