Wow I was really close

I reckoned the date life on these would be surprisingly short, and took a gamble that the stuff hadn’t been in the cupboard too long before lockdown. Nuts and that kind of thing usually only have a few months on them. Of course I could have been wrong, maybe they had a really long life and had been there for years and it was a total coincidence.

I bet they all taste fine tho

I had a really interesting* conversation with Wor Lass when I got home about when I would have originally bought the items.

They were probably purchased in Jan or Feb 20 so had been there a month or so at most when I got sent home.

I hadn’t factored in your logistical inside knowledge.

The noodles were as fine as pot noodles can be and the BBQ seemed fine although maybe not as crunchy as I’d hope.

I do work for a supermarket but I think most of my knowledge came from being someone who regularly buys nuts and forgets about them rather than from work! I also found a pack of expired nuts when I cleared out my pre-pandemic locker a few months ago
