"I wonder when/if candy expires...
About a month ago I ate a 3 year old Airhead without knowing until I had already eatten it."

Candy has 2 ingredients: sugar and chemicals. I wouldn`t worry about it too much.

I have one of those vacuum machines that sucks all the air out of those special bags...It`s called a "Food Saver", and the thing rocks. I buy stuff in bulk and vacuum seal the rest and toss it in the freezer. I just BBQ`d some fish that I sealed a year ago. It was as fresh as the day I brought it home.

That was informative. I`m too grossed out to eat anything that has been on my shelf for more than a year.

Soda, regular
Unopened: In cans or glass bottles, 9 months from "best by" date
Opened: Doesn`t spoil, but taste is affected

What? I`ve seen soda that`s been left out. Mold and stuff starts developing on the surface after a couple of days.

Suprised by things like perfume. My friend has a whole collection of expensive perfume, she will never get through it in two years. She will be gutted.
