The new Hostess Brands, which bought the rights and recipe to make Twinkies and other Hostess snacks out of bankruptcy court earlier this year, says that when Twinkies return they’ll have a 45-day shelf life. That’s significantly longer than the 26-day shelf life they previously had.
It’s great to see the return of an iconic American brand. And now we know Twinkies will never go away again, because not even two million years of entropy can break down their chemical structure. I think these things might become popular in the construction business–cheaper than bricks, and yet far more durable.
