Twinkies devotees can rest a little easier this week because the cream-filled sponge cakes are back after a bit of a hiatus last year. The Twinkies not only return, but they’ll be back with an even more extended shelf life. While the myth that Twinkies last forever is apparently untrue (who knew!), we’re getting closer to that being a reality as the previous shelf life of 26 days will grow to 45 days.

And while we’ll admit to a Twinkie now and again, we have to ask, is a longer shelf life a good thing? Here are a few reasons why you shouldn’t stock up! —Erin
