(CNN)- Friday was Twinkies’ comeback day at Walmart.
The snack hit Walmart shelves three days ahead of its anticipated return nationwide.
Walmart rolled out the first batch of new Twinkies in 16-hundred stores on Friday.
According to a company spokeswoman, by Sunday Twinkies will be available in three-thousand Walmart stores.
The retailer is selling the “first batch” Twinkies in a collectible box.
Twinkies and other hostess products have not been produced since November, when hostess brands filed for bankruptcy and was later bought out by private equity groups.
