What's unsafe about intact food cans, pasta, sugar and instant coffee? I could live for a month on that stuff.

For some reason, that headline reminded me of Fallout.  Also, I wonder what exploded in that pantry.  Something dark and goopy appears to have.

Is there a can of Big John's Beans 'n' Fixin's in there?
If there is, I'd like to make an offer.

I moved into my current apartment in 2005. There's a cabinet in the kitchen that I have not been able to open in all that time. It's high up, near the ceiling. It could contain anything, or nothing. My worst fear is that it contains one or more dead animals that have become so desiccated that I don't smell them. Or maybe human heads in jars of formaldehyde...

Before I move out, when all of my stuff has been packed and is being loaded for relocation, I'm going to break into that cabinet and see what's been there, just a few feet above my pantry.

As someone that likes vintage packaging etc. From the pics there seemed to be nothing interesting in the goods shown, with the exception of the Ovaltine  package.

Dump the food out of the tins, it probably tastes the same as a 2014 British meal.

Which is to say, not at all.

Washing Up Liquid.

The liquid that was made for washing up.

This would be a dream find for my mother who thinks anything out of date is better that way... batshiat insane of spoiled food for some damned reason.  "Milks is 5 days out of date and still tastes fine..." then just raises hell when it curdles in coffee. THAT'S BECAUSE IT IS SPOILED!
Hate to visit because tells me to make a sandwich, hands me lunch meat and it looks like a oversized bull blew its nose inside the container it is soooo out of date.  "It's still gooood!"
"Mom, there's purple fur on the crap!"

She'd spend a month or more having a blast testing every item.. no matter how bad it stunk when opened.


/will agree on the coffee possibly still being good; found a vacuum sealed can of coffee in lower cabinet that had somehow been shoved back and hidden.  Was WAAAYYYY out of date (years) but seal still sunk in and good. I was about to toss it out and thought wtf, and opened it. Broke seal like new and aroma was significantly better than the newer ones that have no vacuum seal.  Tried it and wound up drinking entire can (which I also noticed was 13oz bigger than current selling can, too)

The canned goods from the steamship arabia which sank before the U.S. Civil War tested safe to eat when excavated.

So in theory if the seal is intact its edible.

When i moved into my house, i found very old cans, as the previous owner had dementia for many years, and had a bit of a hoarding problem.

The exploded pineapple cans were a biatch to clean up.

The weirdest thing i found was the lysol in a glass bottle, with instructions on how to make it into a douche. Just last month i tossed some gain sample boxes with chicks in afros on the back.

My mom moved in with my great aunt a few years back, and promptly set to disposing of her canned goods (some home canned from 1970) that dated to the 70s and 80s. My favorite was probably the ocean spray cranberries, it was a pretty label.

things were different way back then.

You can't hold the cleaning products of yesteryear up to modern naming conventions. "washing up liquid" was a product of it's own time. It's own age.

Canned salmon and drinking chocolate? Partay!
 
2014-04-01 01:30:34 AM  
When my grandmother passed in 2005, my father was tasked with this.

He found home preserved peaches from the 70s.  At least that is what the jar said.  It was hard to tell what was in there.

There was even more than that though.  She kept canning for 11 kids even after the last had moved out in the late 70s

Drinking Chocolate.

The chocolate that was made for drinking.

CSB:  when we cleaned out my parents' house about 15 years ago, there were cupboards full of canned goods that pre-dated ZIP codes, meaning that they were from before 1963.  Our favorites were the cans of baked beans and similar foods that had a sterno  can attached to the bottom.  I think they were originally for the fallout shelter.
