Twinkies are making an early return this weekend.

Walmart is selling the snack cakes at about 1,600 stores starting Friday and about 3,000 of its 4,000 US stores should have them by Sunday morning, according to The Associated Press.

There are also 150 Shaw's and Star Market locations throughout New England that are selling the cakes early, the supermarket chain said.

Walmart provided a list of 31 stores in Massachusetts that it believes received Twinkies already. Customers are encouraged to call the store first to verify whether the cakes are in stock.

Twinkies will be in stores everywhere on Monday.

Hostess went bankrupt late last year after years of management turmoil and a standoff with its second-biggest union. The company sold off its various brands, with Twinkies and other Hostess cakes going to private equity firms Metroupoulos & Co. and Apollo Global Management.
