Now we take a look at what's trending at 5:30...

Twinkies made their triumphant return this week, and that has people so excited especially in Santa Claus, Indiana. Folks there chowed down in a friendly Twinkie eating contest.

The Holiday World amusement park is hosting a series of one-minute Twinkie eating contests.

Twinkies and other hostess treats left store shelves last year after the company went out of business, but new owners revived the company this year.

Professional sports teams, college teams, and even us here at News Channel 6 have taken part in the dance craze that went viral known as the Harlem Shake. But now, a 99 Year Old Man is making headlines with his own rendition.

A retirement community in Spanish Fort, Alabama got the idea from the resident's grandson. They plan on shooting a music video for their 30th anniversary, but to get a little practice, they decide to shake it, Harlem-style.

Bill Taube says he had to jump, and then some!

"And then start prancing around with my arms up and I thought that was right silly. That wasn't quite natural for me. I don't know if I did well or not!" 
 
The 30th Anniversary music video will be to "home" by Phillip Phillips. They're shooting next month, and it will air in October.

Irene Larson has waited 39 years to get season tickets to the Green Bay Packers. She is finally off the waiting list thanks to the south end zone expansion and addition of 7,000.

Larson says she put her and her late husband's name on the waiting list back in 1974, but she was optimistic that someday she would have a seat to call her own.

"Oh I anticipated it because quite a few years ago they did that survey talking about the expansion and what to add."

Irene's husband, Lars, passed away several years ago. She says he always wanted to be a season ticket holder.
