    I`ve been scouring my library of codices, and I just can`t for the life of me figure this one out. Best before 24OCT12???? 24 OCT 12...What could that possibly mean???

    Congrats, drips. You`re responsible for the most uninteresting, unfunny post I`ve ever seen on IAB, and that`s saying a lot. Seriously though, you`re in your mid-30s and you don`t know how to read an expiration date? How did this get approved to be posted?

    American products frequently use the DD/Month/YY format on expiration dates. It`s way less confusing than seeing "OCT2412", so you can`t even use the "we`re not used to seeing the date that way" excuse.

    Yeah, what LillianDulci said. It looks like a 0 to me, so that`s what I interpreted it as.

    I`m going to go cut my wrists now, because apparently I`m an "idiot".

    Clearly, lots of preservatives were used.

    For the people saying the "0" looked "O" what difference does it really make? If its not one its the other, shouldn`t be that hard to make that connection I would think. Don`t go cutting your wrists over it though, that`s just pathetic.

    This is best when you have eaten it before the 24th of October 2012. It was produced in batch MM3CP at 00:32, presumably by packer J.

    People out there! Folk are not taking this seriously enough. Every one of these printed sequences of numbers is a special coded message to our under-cover agents out there.
    I know these codes! this one is not top secret, so I can reveal:
    24OCT12MM3CP = date + meet me at number 3 Control Point.
    00:32J = time of message, Agent J.
    Make sure to step on all roaches, they`re probably Kylothian.

    Wrong. They dont expire then. They normally expire a few weeks later. Its a stupid factory/supermarket thing in regards to best before dates.
