Did you know that popcorn goes bad? Yeah, me neither. I always thought it was one of those products that the “best by” date was really just a suggestion. Maybe it is, but it’s certainly not okay 6 months past the “best by” date.
Which is how I ended up with this:
Yes, a full box of popcorn. I had been thinking for the past few months that I was really just a popcorn popping failure because every time I popped a bag (from another box with the same date), I burned it. Half the kernels wouldn’t have even opened, and it was burned. I tried everything; lower power, less time, putting it on a raised surface, and nothing worked. Until I checked the date, realized the popcorn expired SIX MONTHS ago. No wonder it hadn’t been popping correcting.
So out when 10 (including one very burnt bag) bags of popcorn. I also tossed a bit of pasta from a few weeks ago that got shoved to the back of the fridge. I did save two bananas by throwing them in the freezer. I see a loaf of banana bread in my near future.
What did you waste this week?
