Who knew I was so anal?
Wait! Don't answer that! RHETORICAL QUESTION, peoples.
So one of my coworkers needed some sugar, NOW, and found an old box of those 1000% sugar meringue-thingies in the little kitchen. It was in the cabinet for food that's pretty much up for grabs. She offered some to me but the cookies LOOKED stale so I read the "Best Before" date. October, 2006.
Her response? "Twinkies have a 7 year lifespan."
Right. Well. When you gotta have it, you gotta have it, I guess.
Did I mention I don't eat Twinkies either?
