Re: Eating Food Well Past Sell By Date

During the lockdown I decided to rearrange our cellar. When I used to drive to England I'd stock up on all the goodies you can't normally find here, and in the tidying up found quite a few old expired items in the back of the shelves.

Marmite from 2008
Mint sauce from 2005
Heinz Beans from 1999
Heinz Tomato Soup from 2002
Fray Bentos Steak and Ale Pie from 2006*
Corned Beef, date unknown as label missing, at least circa 2002, but still tasted good.

Anyway, not being one to waste good food, I've been opening and eating the food, and had no ill effects whatsoever. Anyone else come across and eaten "expired" food?


Coincidentally I bought some from an online store recently, and discovered the meat content was much greater in the 2006 one than in the fresh one, which had a lot more gravy instead!!
You were brave. I would have thrown everything away long time ago, under the pretext of decluterring.
I mean, I used to throw away things that were only 2 days passt their expiry date (diary products especially).

If everything, corona crisis has taught us something.....we had almost 0 food waste. I even cooked something expired, but it had a different taste. Eatable, but not very appealing. Bulgur passed its expiry date went stale. Had to add a lot of spices to fix it.

Did they taste the same? I mean not good in the sense of being eatable, but good as usual?
