"A shop in the Siberian town of Tomsk has recently started selling what they call "apocalypse kits" a package stocked with the items they suggest you might need for the impending Mayan-predicted armageddon on the 21st of this month. Including vodka, sardines and buckwheat however, the Siberian kit reads more like a hermit's shopping list than a collection of the provisions necessary to survive the end of the world.

The obvious choice of rations when preparing for such an event are those with long shelf lives: canned goods, staples such as wheat, rice and corn, and preservative-laden pseudo food like Twinkies (who despite their supposed ability to survive a nuclear attack are struggling for their own survival). Spam, whose success and legacy is built upon its perfect positioning as a food of any rationing era, is often top of people's lists. But despite countless attempts to jazz up the gelatinous, hammy slab (such as the spam fritters in Joanna Fuertes-Knight of the Girl Eats Food web series' apocalyptic dinner for one), there's little that can mask the flavour and texture of food which has been sat in a tin for weeks, months or years…."

The expired-4-years-ago can of oysters I used a few days ago were still good… ;-)

Have eaten 10-year old MREs. The dye in the maraschino cherries had turned the entire 'fruit cocktail' russet brown, and the cheese in the pasta sauce had aged to Really Sharp, but everything was edible and tasted OK

IIRC both C-Rats & MREs were good for about 20-25 years ? old fart
