If you have friends in Chicago you might have a shot at the very last Twinkies.

NBC reports that the final shipment from the Twinkies plant in Columbus, Ga. was set to arrive in Chicago-area Jewel-Osco supermarkets Tuesday morning.

Over 20,000 boxes were in the last shipment, and no more will be made if/when the brand is bought in bankruptcy proceedings and restarted.

Until then lovers of the creme-filled treats will have to turn to secondary markets like eBay or Craigslist to get their fix.
