A shipment of Twinkies that was scheduled to arrive Tuesday is expected to hit shelves tonight at the Jewel-Osco in Palos Heights.
Jewel confirmed Wednesday afternoon that the shipment will come sometime between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.
The Palos Heights store is among 40 stores throughout the Chicago area scheduled to receive Twinkies tonight, said Karen May, executive communications manager for Jewel-Osco.
Palos Heights police were called to the store Tuesday after management worried the more than 100 people gathered waiting for the Hostess-brand confections would become unruly when the delayed shipment was announced.
“There was no riot. Nobody was upset," said Palos Heights Deputy Chief Dave Delaney.
The Jewel-Osco in Palos Park sold out of Twinkies on Tuesday night.
Hostess began liquidating in November after a bankruptcy court judge ruled the company could sell off assets. The company has confirmed that this will be its last batch of Twinkies.
