(Newser) – Why have one Twinkie when you could have a bowl full? You can, as of next month. A cereal based on the golden pastry—a collaboration of Hostess and Post Consumer Brands—is set to arrive on grocery store shelves by the end of the year, reports USA Today. The cereal "replicates the distinctive taste and familiar oblong shape of the golden-colored snack cake," though there's no cream filling, reads a Wednesday release from the brands, which put out Donnettes and Honey Buns cereals earlier this year, per People. A serving from the $4 box will contain 180 calories and 16 grams of sugar, per Newsweek. That's a lot of sugar, but slightly less than the 19.8 grams contained in the average cereal serving.
