    I had two jars of tostitos dip that expired in 09!!!! They are now in the garbage!

    I think in our case, it may be old teas. (Does that count as a food item?) If teas don’t count, it may be noodles or expired spices or maybe some cans of beans that someone else bought long ago.

    At the moment, I have a chicken breast stashed in the back of my freezer. It’s a year and a half old. But it’s intentionally back there – I vacuum-sealed it way back when I first got the sealer, so it’s there to see how well the seal works/holds. So I don’t know if that counts. Otherwise, it might be some packages of powdered milk from, I dunno, maybe ’07? How long does that stuff last?

      NO!! The chicken doesn’t count! LOL!!! Powdered milk should be okay unless you see worms or bugs in it. That stuff lasts way beyond the expiration.

    Mine would be old spices and tea bags. When my dad passed away half the food he had in his pantry was food that I had bought when I briefly lived with him in my mid 20’s. They were at least 15 years old!

    Holy crap!This reminded me of the pail of pickles I wanted to throw out months ago!!Lol!!Its a pail of refrigerator pickles I made last summer and we haven’t eaten.

    I read the oldest as oddest and was wondering why you all were answering the way you were,lol!I think I need to call it a night,me brain is a wee bit tired.

    Now it’s probably a box of something stuck way back in the pantry, but nothing too crazy. For years and years we had a can of chinese stuff way in the back from when we first moved in. I think it was there for 9 years before I threw it out! After the first couple of years I couldn’t through it away b/c it was one of the first things we bought on our first grocery trip in the new house. Weird I know, but when the can started to bubble, it had to go!
