Whe knew?

Behold, this is one of the baby's favorite toys. It's bright red, shiny, crinkles when grabs it, rattles when he shakes it, and is virtually indestructible.
Skittles

...Pulled from an expired MRE. They're eight years old. The plastic pouch is 100% intact. It's not like we're going to eat them!

"expired" is a weird word when applied to MREs. If they've been kept in a cool, dry place, and not manhandled, if the outer bag isn't puffed up any, the MRE itself is probably still good. I've had ten-year-old MRE beef stew, and it wasn't perceptibly different from much newer MRE beef stew.

Indeed. Our basement is fairly cool, and reasonably dry (with the dehumidifier). I was going through an assortment of meals with 2000 and 2001 date stamps... The fruit items seem to be the first to go South. The beef stew probably would have been edible, but the "meatloaf with brown onion gravy" was just nasty. And the crackers? The crackers are indestructible. :-)

*laughs*

I was cleaning out a closet at my synagogue the other day and found two sealed and unopened bottles of Shaw's "maple syrup" with expiration dates from 1998. One of the folks working with me said, "that's probably still fine to eat!" Uh.....no! An expiration date is there for a reason, in my book. :)
