    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- After an eight-month hiatus, Twinkies are back on store shelves nationwide.

    Several major U.S. retailers actually started selling Twinkies a few days before today's official return.

    The iconic snack and other Hostess products have not been made since November, when Hostess filed for bankruptcy and liquidated its 82-year-old business.

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

    Since today is the big day for Twinkies, we thought it would be fun to have a little taste test challenge this morning.

    We have three different types of 'snack cakes': Hostess Twinkies, Little Debbie Cloud Cakes and Tastykake Dreamies.

    Ashley and Alyse each took a bite of each brand to see if they can tell the difference. Click the THVideo to see what happens next!
