Some Mineral water (in the UK) firstly claims to be 60 million years old then suggests
it should be sold by a specific date (usually within 6-8 months)

I guess they got that out of the ground just in time!

Know anymore obscure sell-by / best before stories?

You are only smart if you are surrounded by fools, so have a bit more patience for those of us that are complete idiots!

I like this place, if they don't ban me I'll stay here.

And it's 'Still' water?
Or is it fizzy?

I would like to see a bar of chocolate with the legend, 'Best before some other greedy pig gets their hands on it.'
If brains were made of dynamite, I wouldn't have enough to blow my nose.

On general matters my young and very beautiful wife seems tho think that "Best before" and "sell by" actually mean "Deadly Poisonous immediately after" - thus any item out of date is hurled into the trash  - anybody else suffer this or have any tales to tell?

Many of these 'use by' dates are just to indemnify the manufacturers. We bought a bottle of vinegar a few days ago with a best before date of 2011. I doubt there will be anything wrong with it in 2022, except it wont last that long.

My Mrs has a 'best before'............. best before she wakes up and starts nagging!!!!

My sister is exactly the same.

I have bicarbonate of soda that says best before April 2001. still works for all the cleaning and de burping jobs!

My favourite is a jar of potassium permanganate with a 1985 expiry, if it`s kept dark it doesn`t go off, and if your kids do get that fungal nail thing at school showers or swimming baths   they keep plugging on the telly a few crystals and barely pink solution does the same and better than the expensive jollop within a week or two.

Works nicely with aluminuim foil for fireworks too!
