*Warning: Do not try this at home!
We’ve all been there, scavenging through the pantry, desperately looking for something to eat – especially while in lockdown. You look at the expiration date only after finishing the dusty tin way back in the cupboard and send up a prayer because you may have had your last meal. 2003 might have been a great year for wine… but for soup?
While it is important to stick to the best-before date, two brave taste testers on History Channel’s brand-new show, Eating History, are proving that you don’t necessarily end up in an ER after ignoring that barely visible date printed on the label. Josh Macuga and Old Smokey are two bros who are obsessed with the history of food, particularly packaged food. They go out of their way to not just learn more about a 72-year-old box of breakfast cereal or a 40-year-old bottle of hot sauce – but to actually taste it to see whether it has stood the test of time. Talk about tickling your tastebuds.
