This week is the big 40th anniversary of a science project that a chemistry teacher in Maine decided to try.
It was back in 1976 that Roger Bennatti unwrapped a fresh Twinkie and placed it atop a classroom chalkboard so he and his students could see how long it took for it to decompose.
He still has that same Twinkie….it’s now in a glass case – and after 40 years, there’s no mould, it’s still the same shape…it actually looks exactly the same.
By the way, according to the company that makes them, the shelf life of a Twinkie is 25 days.
So, do you ever eat snack cakes – or do stories like this make you stay away from them?
