A 40-year-old Twinkie in Blue Hill, Maine, seems to have weathered the past few decades quite well. Perhaps a testament to the power of preservatives, the legendary Twinkie at George Stevens Academy in Blue Hill remains, with the exception of some dust, remarkably intact.

I believe the half-life of a Twinkie is something like 118 years, so this is to be expected.

Snork @ wiredog

Twinkie the Kid is now Twinkie the Old Man

If they ever take this Twinkie apart, the presence of huge amounts of Boniva will account for it's incredible state of bone preservation.

I saw The Legendary Twinkie open for The Raspberries.

Tasty show.

I always used to call the cupcake's product twinkies. One of my many shortcomings.

butt will it survive the hardon collider ?


*ahem* H A D R O N

oh c'mon, you Know i'm not the 1st to misspell it

Also snorking at wiredog.

ligirl, is a hardon collider a lot like a sword fight? Just asking.

There is a rumor that when King Tut's tomb was opened they found a case of still tasty Twinkies along with Hugh Hefner's original birth papyrus. I am sure Twinkies would survive any Hadron ( or Hardon) apocalypse.

Nevertheless, she welcomes the Twinkie attention.

How many times can someone write a sentence like that?
That's great journalism!

MOTW - she's the Hostess with the mostest ;)

proving that there is not enough nutrition in a Twinkie to sustain a mold colony.
