The cream-filled cakes are better than ever after the company returned to the original 1960s recipe.

Hostess fans, listen up: Suzy Q’s Cakes are back on store shelves—and this time, they’re just as good as the 1960s original. After being discontinued in 2012 when Hostess filed for bankruptcy, the cream-filled chocolate sandwiches returned in 2016, but the attempt at an upgrade did not go over well with fans, who found them to be "subpar."

The second revamp, announced earlier this week, brings back the original cake’s shape (rounded edges) as well as 50 percent more cream and cake. They're now available in 6-count packs and single serve twin-packs at retailers nationwide.

“Suzy Q’s fans are among our most passionate consumers, and they have spoken loud and clear,” Burke Raine, Hostess Brands’ Chief Marketing Officer, said in a statement. “We heard their feedback on social media and through our Consumer Affairs group, and have responded with an even better snack cake that measures up to our expectations.”

Suzy Q Cakes aren’t the only nostalgic snack that has been brought back by popular demand. See below for a list of the all-time sweetest comebacks. 

1. Oreo O’s Cereal:  In June 2017, everyone’s favorite sugary cereal returned to store shelves, featuring the original recipe.

2. French Toast Crunch: The maple-flavored cereal was discontinued in 2006, but made an epic return in 2014. Now, it’s offered in Apple Cinnamon, Strawberry, and Blueberry flavors, too.

3. Twix Peanut Butter and Twix White Chocolate: With the launch of Dark Chocolate Twix in August 2017 came the announcement that the Peanut Butter and White Chocolate varieties were making a comeback.

4. Crispy M&Ms: After 10 years of phone calls, petitions, and Facebook posts, Mars chocolate brought back Crispy M&Ms in 2014.

5. Twinkies: Originally pulled from shelves in November 2012, the sweet treat made its comeback in July of the following year, complete with an extended shelf life of 45 days.
