Baby's Cheesesteak and Lemonade gave away the coveted treats Wednesday at its locations in Orland Park and Country Club Hills along with 2,200 chocolate cupcakes. The restaurant got the idea as a promotion after Hostess announced it was closing last month. Workers used two mini-vans to make two trips to a Hostess outlet and buy the Twinkies and cupcakes.

The restaurant even offered a Twinkie milkshake.
