    this thread is dedicated to everyone's favorite snack.. the twinkie..

    the twinkie has a shelf life of at least 8 years if i'm correct.

    quick twinkie fact:
    ------
    Hostess Twinkies were invented in 1931 by James Dewar, manager of Continental Bakeries' Chicago factory. He envisioned the product as a way of using the company's thousands of shortcake pans which were otherwise employed only during the strawberry season. Originally called Little Shortcake Fingers and filled with banana cream, they were renamed Twinkie Fingers, and finally "Twinkies."

    Close enough....


    Twinkies were created in 1930 as ladyfinger-shaped spongecakes enrobing a banana filling produced at the Hostess bakery in Schiller Park, Illinois. (Hostess is now owned by Kansas City-based Interstate Bakeries Corp.) The product's name was inspired by a billboard in St. Louis advertising Twinkle Toe Shoes. When the world's banana trade ground to a halt during World War II (this wasn't the first time war disrupted the banana trade — the popular ditty "Yes, We Have No Bananas" came out of World War I because of similar circumstances), Hostess substituted a vanilla cream filling not dissimilar to cake frosting.

    Twinkies have a shelf life of twenty-five days, not seven years, and certainly not fifty years. Even so, twenty-five days is an unusually long time for a baked product to stay fresh. The secret to Twinkies' longevity is their lack of dairy ingredients — because dairy products are not part of the formula, Twinkies spoil much more slowly than other bakery items.

    After the baking process of the sponge cake portion is completed, cream filling is injected into each Twinkie through three holes in its top (brown) side; the product is then flipped before packaging, turning its bottom into its top. Hostess estimates they use eight million pounds of sugar, seven million pounds of flour, and one million eggs to produce the 500 million Twinkies baked every year.

    Twinkies gained notoreity in American jurisprudence in 1979 when the media widely misreported the claim that Dan White, on trial for shooting San Francisco mayor George Moscone and city supervisor Harvey Milk, asserted that his consumption of junk foods such as Twinkies "had left him with diminished capacity for reason."

    According to Hostess, it takes forty-five seconds to explode a Twinkie in a microwave. http://www.snopes.com/food/ingredient/twinkies.htm
