(Chicago, IL) A grocery store chain in Illinois is selling what may be the last shipment of Twinkies in the country.

On Tuesday, Jewel-Osco put about 20-thousand boxes of Twinkies and other hostess goodies on shelves at more than 150 stores.

A spokesperson for the grocer bought all the remaining stock from a hostess plant in Georgia.

Hostess — which also has a bakery in Memphis — is going out of business and selling all its assets.
