It's hard to justify buying a giant bag of fun-sized candy on Halloween when historically you never really got any trick-or-treaters. People have taken photos of some pretty weird things their kids have gotten as a result but what one parent's kids got may have set a record.
Don’t think this specific brand exists anymore. Is there a doctor in the house?— Adrian Johnson (@adrian_johnson) October 31, 2017
The old-timey packaging alone would've been a red flag, but hunger blinds people to everything.
18 years in the pantry is a long time.
18 years is a long time, you think a person would notice before they chomped away.
Well that’s troubling. What’s more is that after that amount of time there was no visible decay on the biscuits?!— John Wright (@JohnWright1980) October 31, 2017
It’s like that MacDonalds experiment where the burger doesn’t decay after a year. Wonder what else lurks in their kitchen? 🤢— John Wright (@JohnWright1980) October 31, 2017
The biscuits must have tasted stale at least... even if there wasn't visible mould. They expired during Star Wars The Phantom Menace.— Obi-Wan Kenobi (@SirBenKenobi) November 1, 2017
No. Horrendous. I wretched into the sink. But I’m alive this morning👍— Adrian Johnson (@adrian_johnson) November 1, 2017
But only one person asked the real question on everyone's mind.
who the hell can keep digestive biscuits in the pantry for 18 years. 18 minutes is a record in our house.— mattshort (@mattshort) October 31, 2017
Think it was innocent mistake. It was from an older couple over the road from our house. Though our kids are quite noisy.— Adrian Johnson (@adrian_johnson) October 31, 2017
He'll be telling this story to his grandkids for sure.
