how legit are some of these? I was cleaning out the cabinet and came across some old stuff i guess....had dates of 06 and 07 and some early 08. Objects such as: canned goods, tomato sauce, tuna in a foil package, mac and cheese, powdered seasonings in a packet, cookies, jam, hot chocolate, popcorn, etc. I mean does hot chocolate and mac and cheese really go bad? Its just noodles. Everything is dry and sealed.
Thoughts? I found an old can of odouls in my fridge that had an 06 date on it. my buddy drank it yesterday and said it wasnt too bad lol.
how do i know if i should chance it or throw it out? is it that it's not fresh after that date or that bacteria starts to grow?
