Who wants a snack?

At George Stevens Academy in Blue Hill, an experiment started in 1976. During a lesson about food additives and preservatives, science teacher Roger Bennatti was asked by a student how long a Twinkie would last. Forty three years later, it's still there!

Bennatti opened a Twnikie package, ate one of them, and put the other package up on the classroom chalkboard way back in '76. It's a little grey now, and not edible, but it is still at George Stevens Academy for everyone to marvel at.
