    Best By Date

    Two days ago, I ingested a portion of Hormel Hot Chili with Beans that had a best by date of two and a half years ago.
    Aside from the usual consequences of ingesting such crap, all is well.

    Disclaimer: This was consumed on Kosher hot dogs. That may have helped.
    I don't know.

      A large portion of my emergency food storage is cans of Aldi beef stew. In order to rotate stock, we eat it now and then. Obviously, we eat the oldest first. The last time we had it, I saw that the best by date was October of 2012. It was no different than a fresh can.

        Don't try that with MILK! Especially milk in bags!

        I rarely look at the date on cans. But if the can looks like it has been out in the weather awhile I pass.

          Go with Wolf brand chili if you're eating canned. Everything else is just Alpo with a different label.

              Depending on where you live it can be hard to find. The farther you are from Texas the less frequently you see it on shelves. Took me a couple of years up here to figure out who is in charge of stock orders at the grocery stores and get them to order it. But there is always online shopping.

                I think that I've seen it.
                I only used the canned stuff on hot dogs for an easy meal. If I'm eating a bowl full, I'll make my own.
                Thanks again.

                  Careful, gamgee isn't fond of us saying Aldi.

                    I opened a 4 year old jar of Polaner All Fruit recently and it was good. I ate the whole jar in a couple of days on my toast and couldn't tell that it wasn't new.

                      I drank some milk the other day that was 2 months past the exp. Was still good, though it was in a sealed container still ( I dont drink much milk), didnt smell like shit and went down smoothly.

                      Eitherway all is good, no issues, I will explain more in detail later but these folks in the ER are real touchy about me using phone devices, something about how it interfers with the stomach pump machine. Anywho, catch ya later !

                        Best before dates are a marketing tool to ensure shop stock rotation because if you had nothing on the tin the shop you buy it from could be selling you something 10 yrs old.

                        But best before dates don't mean much. It's 'use by' dates you have to take care of. Ground meat, that sort of thing.

                            I wouldn't say it's good, but it's tight.
