It's a popular urban myth that Twinkies never spoil. But, there is a spoiled Twinkie for sale on Ebay. How can that be? Well, because Twinkies really do spoil. There is a photo on the Ebay listing. But because it really is gross, I have it at the bottom of this blog. You don't have to scroll down there if you don't want to. Just sayin.
Bidding for the spoiled Hostess Twinkie started at $25, plus $10 for shipping. There were 10 bids at the time of this writing. Someone bid $46.00. If you decide to buy the Twinkie, please do let us know. See the Ebay listing here.
"I really did believe that these things and cockroaches would be the only thing to survive a nuclear war, but I was wrong," the seller writes in a somewhat lengthy description of what he says is a "scientific and historical curiosity."
In fact, Twinkies have a shelf life of about 25 days, according to the Washington Post. This may come as unwelcome news to Twinkie loyalists who stocked up on the desserts after Hostess Brands announced it was going out of business in November.
Side note..... 11 companies have submitted bids to buy the Hostess cake brands, owner of Twinkies. Among the bidders are the owners of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. That makes sense.
Ok...here is the photo of the rotten Twinkie. View at your own risk:
