The other night I wanted something completely random for dinner. I looked up on top of my fridge and there were several boxes of various American and Asian flavored instant noodles. I grabbed a pair of Tom Yum-flavored packages and fired up the tea kettle. The first package had a moldy smell to it. Maybe it was just a fluke. Unfortunately the second package had the same smell. I looked all over the wrapper and could not find an expiration date.
There was another box of instant noodles that were a different flavor. It had the year 2010 on it! *Bleep*
The only thing left was a box of Ramen. Beef flavor won’t fail me now! I must have bought this recently, maybe within the past year. Nope, 2009! Really?! I was starting to feel like an instant noodle hoarder.
I cannot believe instant noodles have expiration dates! Even my trusty Ramen noodles! I thought these things could survive everything from asteroids to nuclear winters. Instant noodles do not qualify as survival food for a zombie apocalypse. I guess the only thing you can reliably eat remain Twinkies.
