James A. Dewar

(? - June 30, 1985)

James A. Dewar of the Continental Baking Company created the snack cake 'Twinkie' in 1930. Many say that Twinkies will stay fresh almost forever. In fact, many bomb shelters in the 1960s were supposedly furnished with stockpiles of Hostess Twinkies. It has been said that Dewar ate 2 Twinkies a day until he died in 1985.
