Hostess Brands recently entered a new product category with the launch of Twinkies Cappuccino. The indulgent hot beverage will be available in convenience stores across the nation through the company’s partnership with Kerry Convenience. Kerry Convenience will take ownership of both the manufacturing and distribution of Twinkies Cappuccinos through a license agreement.
Twinkies Cappuccinos promise a classic Twinkie sponge cake flavor in combination with creamy milk and a touch of coffee. The beverages are currently available in Sheetz convenience stores in northeastern United States with plans to expand to the rest of the country in the near future.
“Hostess has risen to be the #1 snack cake of choice for c-store customers,” said Ellen Copaken, Vice President of Marketing at Hostess Brands. “Twinkies Cappuccino not only provides consumers with another option when selecting a treat, it combines two of their favorites into one decadent indulgence.”
Sharon Porter, Director of Marketing at Kerry Convenience, said, “We are delighted to bring the iconic taste of Twinkies to consumers in a new form – that of a cappuccino. Kerry’s thorough understanding of the hot dispensed category, as well as the c-store channel, has allowed us to produce an operationally easy, dispense ready, high-quality product representative of the treat beloved by generations.”
