COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Dolly Madison Bakery is gearing up to cook some of America's favorite snack cakes.

Hostess brands originally said Twinkies and other products will be back on store shelves on Monday July 15.

However, we've learned that they made an early return to several local Wal-Marts and are ready for purchase.

Here is a list of which Columbus and Phenix City Wal-Marts that currently have Twinkies in stock:

~Wal-Mart on Airport Thruway - in stock as of Friday July 12

~Wal-Mart on Whittlesey Blvd. - in stock as of Friday July 12

~Wal-Mart on Gateway Rd. - expected to return to the shelves Monday July 15

~Wal-Mart on Buena Vista Rd. - not on the shelves yet

~Wal-Mart on Highway 280 in Phenix City - not on the shelves yet

The company announced it was going out of business last year after it was unable to emerge from bankruptcy.

Thanks to three companies that bought the rights to Twinkies and other hostess brands, the snack is safe!

Last month's re-opening of Dolly Madison on Victory Drive brought dozens of jobs back to the area.
