This is an amazing story to me. I distinctly remember what happened to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that was left in the top shelf of my locker for an entire school year.

When it was discovered behind a stack of notebooks in June, it had turned into a black blob that probably should have been attended to by a hazmat team for clean up.

I'm pretty sure that the sandwich was forgotten about on my part. But there is a possibility that my bros and I wanted to have some fun with science to see what would happen.

There's a Twinkie at George Stevens Academy in Blue Hill, Maine that has remarkably held together for 43 years. The video from the Straits Times in Singapore shows that the snack cake is dried out for sure, but it still holds its shape. How?

Meet retired science teacher Roger Bennatti and former student Libby Rosemeier. They were there with the fresh Twinkie in 1976 and will give us the history.

The experiment to see how long the Twinkie will be around has certainly got me asking if it's really a good idea to eat 'em. I'm gonna guess, no. Looks like the preservatives are working, huh.
