Twinkie Explosion~Part 3

by on October 11, 2010

Louis Browning, of Shelbyville, Ind., knows what he likes. He has eaten a Twinkie nearly every day since 1941.

Will a Twinkie explode with its plastic wrapper left on?

Twinkie Explosion  #3:

  • We left the Twinkie in the plastic wrapper.
  • This experiment was done twice once for the suggest 45 seconds and once for  1 1/2  minutes.
  • In response to PETT-People for Ethical Treatment of Twinkies: We only used Twinkie’s well past their shelf life. We rescued them from the a parking lot dumpster. Ho-Ho gave them a lovely Eulogy speaking eloquently about his pride in these Twinkies that had not exploded in the face of adversity.

This concludes the Twinkie Experiments.

You are the only Mom I know that would allow this experiment to take place in their microwave and then agree that the results were disappointing. I don’t know If I should admire you or suggest to your family that they find you some help 😀

Are you suggesting I might need a life? 8)

I am so glad that I can now say with absolute certainty that a Twinkie will not blow up.

Katybeth Jensen

Good to know isn’t it! You can ✓ this one off your bucket list.

I had such high hopes for this experiment after the last Microwave fail. Leaving it in the wrapper seemed like such a good idea. I looked at the cat box cake…and thought Kb’s friend must know what she is talking about after all she made a cat box cake. Oh well, all I can ask is can we try it with a Ho Ho?

Katybeth Jensen

I share your pain Linda ☹ Really. Perhaps, we will try a Ho Ho or a cupcake in not the to far future so console yourself and stay tune.

I still say because it is a sponge it will never explode. If you want to see a mess in a microwave, put a bowl of tomato soup or something in there and put it on really high for 5 or 6 miutes. You will have a good mess in the microwave. 👿 Most things will burn or get hard. And by the way, I dont for a minute think that you are getting them by dumpster diving. I am upset that you have treated a good tasting twinkie like this. 😀 Yes I am a yum. 😯 lol
