(WHAS11) -- Don't pay high prices on eBay just yet. The Twinkie could be making its comeback very soon.
Hostess, which shut down late last year, is said to be close to picking a preferred buyer for the Twinkies brand.
Reports say that the leading candidate for a potential buyer is the owner of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer.
Any agreement to sell would have to be approved by the Federal Bankruptcy Court that oversees the liquidation of Hostess' assets.
