Disaster Food Stock

It’s still a tough economy, and in an effort to cut costs (and being the crazy person that I am), I bought some ground beef and wondered if my old box of Hamburger Helper was still good…

You’ll want to notice the date in the next picture: 22 FEB 02.  That’s right, 2002.  I bought it back when I started my first career job.  Not wanting to harm any animals or humans in the process, I decided to become a human test subject.

Suffice to say, I am still alive and have suffered no ill effects.  I thought the pasta might go bad, but the seal was air tight, and the seasoning was still good as well.  I was actually more worried about the beef which was set to expire January 31, 2012.  It was still tasty (i.e. not stale).  My hats off to Betty Crocker/General Mills for making food that stands the test of time.
