It is said that a Hostess Twinkie has a shelf life of 25 days.
When I investigated this, Sherlock here discovered a cornucopia of interesting experiments with food items. Twinkies seem to be the most popular article to test, followed by Cool Whip and Happy Meals.
I was a happy camper during my elementary school days when I found Twinkies in my Mary Poppins or Laugh In lunch box. I loved them.
Now, I do not.
We try to eat healthy, but on New Year’s Day, we have a huge breakfast of items we would never otherwise consume. This year, we even had canned biscuits.
I know. Gross, you say.
But for some odd reason, I like them. I think mainly it’s because I like to pull the layers apart and play with my food.
While celebrating the New Year and eating our fat laden and preservative filled feast, it occurred to me that we should do our own little experiment.
He was named by Chris.
We call him Zanzi for short.
He lives on top of our fridge.
I will keep you updated on his life, and his decline or lack thereof. (Because I know that you are so excited about this.)
Be healthy, and always play with your food.
