That's a big Twinkie.

Ever since Egon (Harold Ramis) used a Twinkie as an analogy for the high-level of psychokinetic energy (P.K.E.) in the original 1984 Ghostbusters, the spongy yellow logs of cream have held special place in the hearts of fans of the franchise.

That's why it should not come as too much of a surprise that Hostess is trying to cash-in on the reboot with a tie-in product: "Key Lime Slime Twinkies." We don't when they'll hit store shelves, but you can see an image of them in the tweet below.

Thirty years after the original film took the world by storm, Ghostbusters is back and fully rebooted for a new generation. Director Paul Feig combines all the paranormal fighting elements that made the original franchise so beloved with a cast of new characters, played by the funniest actors working today. Get ready to watch them save the world this summer!

Ghostbusters is due in theaters July 15, 2016.
