Last Chance to Eat a 16 Year Old Twinkie

Rob and I have had these Twinkies in our freezer since the month of our wedding, March 1993.  We were doing youth ministry back then, and somehow we got on the topic of Twinkies with a group of kids.  We were talking about the shelf life…wondering if the rumors were true.  Would a Twinkie taste the same in 15 years as it would fresh out of the box?

Guess what we got as a wedding gift?  Yep, a box of Twinkies.  It’s been 16 years.  Why didn’t we eat them at 15 years?  We’re chickens. 

I think there were originally 8 Twinkies in the box, but a few hungry babysitters have ignored the WARNING DO NOT EAT, SCIENCE PROJECT signs all over the box and ate them.  They are not dead.

I dare you.

Anyone up for it?

I’m not.

And why is this your last chance? 

Because I am so sick of them taking up space in my freezer, that’s why.
