I don’t like onions, so I tend to use chives pretty sparingly. And during the warmer months I have fresh chives in my back yard. So a jar of dried chives lasts me a long time ;) I’m not sure when I got these- it’s not a really ancient McCormick’s label, but it was probably still several years old. 2 months ago
Entries from everyone
I picked this up when I was on vacation in southern New Mexico in December of 2007. I wouldn’t say that this was my favorite Gewürztraminer, I think it was a bit too sweet, but it was still good :)4 months ago
I couldn’t find a “Best by” date on this one, but I know I’ve had it for over five years. I got it during an after-Christmas clearance sale. It was in one of those gift sets they always have at the discount stores at Christmas time for when you haven’t found a thoughtful present but just have to pick something up ;) I actually only bought it because I wanted the ceramic Hooters cracker & cheese tray that came with it. The sauce reminded me a lot of the original Frank’s hot sauce- too vinegary for me. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if it was made by Frank’s for Hooters. 5 months ago
Rum is probably my favorite hard liquor, and I think that this was the last bottle I had in the house :( It’s not exactly a fancy rum, but it’s still tasty- and I love the Bacardi bat :)
I have no idea when I bought this, other than it was at least a few years ago. 5 months ago
“Best before 25MAY2011,” so they were only a year out of date ;)
There were a little dried out, but I normally just use raisins in cooking (especially oatmeal) so they were fine. 5 months ago
I’m not sure if this was really Sugar Smacks or a generic. And I guess I don’t buy it very often, since I didn’t realize that Sugar Smacks were renamed Honey Smacks- 9 years ago, according to Wikipedia!
I bought this sometime last year for a camping trip, then kind of forgot about the remainder when we got back home. Usually items like this keep very well in our dry climate but when I pulled this bag out in June it was all stuck together & stale. I dumped it in the compost pile (aka “the squirrel feeder :P). 5 months ago
I checked the larder. I don’t have any ancient stuffs lurking in there, something about which I am almost sad. :D It would have been nice.
Anyway: it’s not worthwhile for me to keep the goal. I’m ‘giving up’. Boo! 5 months ago
This is a cheaper knockoff of Honey Nut Cheerios but I think they taste just as good. I bought this for a camping vacation but it was a huge bag so we had quite a bit left. As I mentioned in the last entry under this goal I don’t eat cold cereal often anymore, and my daughter rarely wakes up in time to eat breakfast :P so I had it for quite a while. “Best By” date was Apr. 26, 2011 so it was probably about a year and a half old. Still tasted fine. 6 months ago
This was passed on to me by someone who didn’t like it. Eh, it was ok. I don’t eat cold cereal like this very often so it sat around for a while, but with a “Best By” date of Dec. 17, 2011 it was actually barely old enough to qualify for this goal ;)6 months ago
I did pretty good with this one- it’s one of the best whiskeys I’ve had, but I think that I stretched the bottle out for over a year :)
That’s partly because it’s fairly expensive for me. I got it on sale for a good price around St. Patrick’s Day, but I think that it normally runs around $45 a bottle. I will definitely buy it again if I can catch a good sale. 6 months ago
