Hey Guys, I was just eating a chicken and mushroom slice and started thinking - how many of you eat food even though it's 'out of date' ? What's the most out of date food you've eaten ?

At a pub where I used to be the Bar Manager, we were cleaning out the Cellar after a Flood and found a couple of old crates of Lager that were about 10 years or so past their Sell By date!! We opened a couple and tried them and found that it had re-fermented in the bottles! It poured like syrup, tasted a bit like Barley Wine and was about 5 x stronger than it should have been!!!

In my less fortunate days, in the 80's, I was hungry and could finally after the longest time on zero $ afford a pizza. Picked it up and on the way to the apartment,we had snow, I accidently dropped the pizza box and the pizza fell out and landed on a yellow spot in the snow. Damn dogs! It was a slope so it folded in half and when it came to a stop it was laying right beside the yellow spot.

That pizza became outdated that very second.

I debated with myself how much damage it took, after all it folded and never got enough time to sponge any of the yellow liquid. And I was really hungry and my wallet was empty again so I put it back into the box and then enjoyed a gorgeous meal in my apartment. I didn't taste any different.

Man, I can relate to that ! laugh.gif

I did a gig recently and I got a 12" steak and cheese sandwich from Subway... as soon as I started eating it dropped out of the paper wrapper and onto the pavement.. sad.gif

However, I did a damage assessment, picked up the pieces of meat and salad that I thought 'might be ok' and put them back in the bread and ate it ! wink.gif

Well, let's say that there's a place here biggrin.gif in the north, built by one of our most revered medieval rulers - Steven The Great (15th century) who built a big network of cellars which are currently used to store wine. They are famous in my country. You can go there and taste some wine, dating from his age smile.gif it's more like wine jam, but this 'outdated' beverage can get you STONE DRUNK from ONE SPOON (you eat it like a jam, it can't be poured anymore) laugh.gif

Friend of mine once tried to drink from a bottle of Baileys he found that was a couple of years out of date. He spat it out very quickly laugh.gif .

IME Sell By and Use By dates in England are way off the mark Ben. I think a lot of people are too cautious because of this and so a lot of perfectly good food is thrown away. (Can't remember the actual figure but I think the UK sends 100s of tonnes of good food to land fil every year.)

When I was a kid my mum inisisted that I learnt how to tell if food was fresh from its appearance and smell rather than what it says on a label. We can't follow the labels here anyway as most of our food we either grow ourselves or get/buy from neighbours and the last I looked the spinach we picked this morning didn't have any use by labels on it wink.gif .

Yeah you're definitely at an advantage if you just hone your natural skills.. I can totally imagine that the sell by dates are exagerated as well smile.gif

Who can? It's a mix of yymmdd ddmmyy mmddyy and mmyydd and for anything inbetween 01 through 12 is impossible to interpret. Only safe bet is when the stamp contains the same figures for all, like "best before" 12-12-12. That happens way too seldom laugh.gif



Above post is best read before 13-13-13 huh.gif

This reminds me of a very bad experience I had. A few years ago, I bought 2 chocolate milks, both of them out of date (I didn't check). So, I put a movie (I remember, it was 'For a Few Dollars More"), and drank one package (0,5 liters), then went to sleep. When I woke up in the morning, I felt so sick and the entire room was rotating around me. I could barely stand up, and I had no idea why that was happening.

Then, ironically, I made myself a breakfast and DRANK THE SECOND PACKAGE of 0,5 l. blink.gif
I won't go into details what happened next but in the end I went to the store where I bought these out-of-date milk packages and they offered to give me 2 more for free?

The irony biggrin.gif

I can see what MickeM means. But at Walmart we are forced to go by the dates. We have to throw things out. There was some yogurt out of date by weeks. Nobody had caught it...shame... (I was one of the many guilty). Our store manager cleaned out and threw out 50+ yogurts that were out of date. Basically, we didn't zone correctly and rotate the items, but just pushed things backwards. That wasn't me that did that, but he was saying that somebody should have caught that. He was right. Ever since then, I always check dates. wink.gif Nobody really got in trouble since it was a whole lot of people's fault - all the cashiers zone foods. But yeah, definitely a thing to watch out for. We can't sell it if it's not at its freshest. smile.gif

Just thought of something....

Ever took a bit into a piece of moldy bread?? AAAHKKKKK!!
