This is one of those "Tree in a forest" questions. If you're close enough to the blast center of a nuclear explosion that all other food had been obliterated or has otherwise spoiled, then I would think you'd be dead.
I was just trying to look up the shelf life of a twinkie, though and it looks like it's quite a long time.

i breckon they would be extremely damaged by the radiation anyway. they might survive the initial blast, but propably wont survive long after.

i doubt they can, depending on how close they are.

Im sure if the twinkie actually survived, that I would touch it with a 10 foot pole. It could blow up at any second!

I had a teacher who had the same Twinkie in his classroom for over 8 years. And it looked like it had just come out of the wrapper. They are incredibly unnatural, and if anything can survive a nuclear explosion, it probably would be the Twinkies.[/quote]

Agreed.

If you knew what a nuke was you wouldnt even ask that question. One nuke can destroy japan. No it cant
