The Shelf Life Of A Twinkie

8 06 2008

I haven’t had a Twinkie in about 30 years.

But, well, there’s this:

What is the shelf life of a Twinkie? If I found a Twinkle packed way with my college stuff from 15 years ago, can I still eat it?

Your better run if you find a Twinkie next to your “Top Gun” poster and lava lamp in the dusty box marked “College” that’s sat behind the water heater in your basement’s nether region since the Reagan administration.

It’s not going to be pretty.

“The preservatives in Twinkies prohibit mold growth for about 21 days,” said a spokesman for Hostess, who wished to not be identified. “Contrary to the popular myth out there, Twinkies don’t last for years and years.”

Well, who knew. I always thought they tasted 15 years old but maybe that’s just me.

Not to be confused with the Twinkie Defense.
