37-year-old Twinkie, world’s oldest, still a sweet treat at Blue Hill school (Maine)

BLUE HILL, Maine — There’s a maxim that says there’s one treat that will last forever. We imagine a post-apocalyptic landscape upon which the only survivors — perhaps cockroaches and Cher — survey the burning rubble while eating the only food that hasn’t gone bad: the Twinkie.

So when Hostess recently announced its intent to shut down for good, ending production of the popular yellow, cream-filled sponge cake, it wasn’t long before stories emerged of mad rushes for Twinkies at supermarkets and convenience stores.

In Blue Hill, the snack is nowhere to be found. A worker at Tradewinds Marketplace said the store sold out. Searches at Merrill & Hinckley and Rite Aid turned up nothing. But there’s one place in town where you can always find a Twinkie: George Stevens Academy.

Odds are good, though, that you won’t want to eat it.
