We have all heard the rumor that Twinkies are so artificial that they will survive to the end of time. But few of us have ever tested that theory. So, when Colin Purrington found an 8-year-old box of Twinkies, he decided to eat them.
Purrington told NPR, "When there's no desserts in the house, you get desperate".
As soon as he took a bite, he knew something was wrong. The Twinkies had something growing in them.
