Twinkies are going on a diet.

Hostess is introducing 100-calorie Twinkie snack packs in stores across the country today.

David Leavitt is a V.P. of Hostess owner Interstate Bakeries.

He says the 100-calorie "Twinkie Bites" are the real thing.

He says there are three, miniature round Twinkies in each snack pack.

The new mini Twinkies join the Hostess line-up of 100-calorie packs, which include cupcakes, muffins and coffee cakes.
