Hostess Brands filed for bankruptcy in 2012 after a union strike left the company in crumbles...er, shambles. Investment firms Metropoulos & Co. and Apollo Global purchased the rights to Hostess Brands last March and now the company is back in business.

"America wanted Hostess back -- they wanted the original. Very soon, consumers will once again be able to enjoy Twinkies, CupCakes and other great Hostess snack cakes. A comeback by any other name could never be as sweet," read a statement from Daren Metropoulos of Metropoulos & Co.
