    soup for lunch... expired in feb. 2010.. what have you eaten,,,

    that expired??

    tell us your experience eating a can of ________ that expired way back!!
    or maybe you opened a quart jar of _________ beans that were put up in 20__?

    today, for lunch, i ate dinty moore beef stew that expired feb. 2010.
    for most of the time since i've had it, it has been in a/c basement. for the last 12 months. it has been in an insulated storage room with no heat or a/c in south georgia.
    i noted that the inside of the can had a white coating... maybe an enamel.??

    it was good. i ain't died yet.

    i guess i should cover us all with a disclaimer... we in no way encourage anyone to eat
    food that aint safe... (in fact, the choice to eat anything is your choice!)
    that hasn't been thoroughly tested, verified, microscoped and authorized by
    the food specialists. because you read something here does not mean its' safe for you to do so.
    ole rockriver might have kept his in airconditioning, and you might have kept yours in the trunk of car in the desert. who knows. ole rockriver mighta just made this up. or he might of developed a stomach of lead from
    eating cast off goods because of his economic situtation. if you try this at home or anywheres you do so at your own risk!! ole RR and the Mrs. and this website, and all advertisers, readers, sponsors, moderators, owners, internet trunk line providers, microsoft, hewlett packard, truthtellers, keyboard commandos, wimpies, girly boys, forked tongue lying pos's, ain't responsible for you!! but we do wish you well... so don't eat something that ain't fittin'

    Do 25 year old C-rats count?
    Actually, on canned goods that date is a "best by" date. If the can is not swelled or rusty it's good a lot longer than what's printed on the can.
    Lately I have had some 3 year past due garbanzo beans with my rice.

    Last week an MRE from the early 90's that had lived in my car for some years, and the outer plastic had torn. The M&M's inside had been attacked by sugar ants, but the beef stew was still as good as its ever going to be. The chocolate covered oatmeal cookie and hard cracker were both OK, but the jalepeno cheese spread had been torn and compromised so I didn't eat it. I believe that a major part of the stability of MRE's is because they are irradiated to complete sterility.
