Believe it or not, Bonnie Minsky bought a wrapped Hostess cupcake back in 1981 and still has the snack on display at her nutrition seminars fully intact.
Minsky kept the cupcake to show how trans-fats prevents food from breaking down properly.
Says Minsky: The cupcake is a little hard but still completely preserved. The plastic around the cupcake is more worn down than the cake itself!
Although the sweet temptation has been in Minskys life for a quarter-century, she insists that shes never had a craving to bite into it.
Not everyone feels the same way about the cupcake.
About 13 years ago, a little old lady tried to stuff the snack into her purse at one of Minskys seminars.
She jokes: I caught her red-handed!
