A couple in Colorado recently went to their local Walmart for some groceries. They grabbed a box of Quaker granola cereal, got it home, opened it up, and thought it tasted a little stale, despite being newly opened.
When they checked the expiration date, they spotted the problem: The cereal expired in February of 1997!!!
HOW DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN!?
Somehow, this box of cereal has been kicking around the stockroom at Walmart (or at the distribution center? Or the Quaker plant?) for 21 years, and was finally purchased this week. That is CRAZY!
I'm all in favor of eating food that's past its expiration date (just give it a sniff...it's probably fine) but this is bonkers!
