Can an unopened twinkie go stale?

I have been doing pretty good lately. haven't been to the doctor since april. that is doing pretty good for me. I don't go to doctors for colds as they will threaten me with shots and tell me to take it easy (which I already do)
That's where I'm at, allergies getting extremely bad, combined with frequent/persistant sinus infections.

I am using guaifenisin for it's mucus thinning properties as required and saline flushes, netti pot style, but I'm just using a large syringe. Also drinking oregano tea every day. This just about manages to keep it under control, barely.... if I get run down the sinus infection comes back hard.... I try to limit use of other decongestants, can feel them messing up my fluid/electrolyte balance and my kidneys start to ache after a day or two. Ragweed season just got here and my nostrils are burning again, the allergy remedies seem to be getting less effective and more prone to side effects...

RW,

I do the netti pot though it is about the nastiest thing I have ever done. I don't do it often. my solution right now is two claratins daily (generic ones for cost). I was told that taking two is fine because the does is for the average person and some people do need more than the average.

I may have to try some of the things that you mentioned. I do the saline flushes sometimes. I am not a big fan of stuff up my nose.

RW, which decongestants are you using that affect you that way?

I can handle nasal sprays and gels, but I can't do a netti pot (or similar action with syringe etc).

I used to work for a vending company. One time I was asked to do the write offs on a box of miscellaneous product that had been sitting in the back of the warehouse for a couple of years. The twinkies looked just as good as ever, but they were hard as bricks.
