Surprising Expiration Dates
A handy, who-knew guide to 77 foods, beauty products, and household goods
Do You have stockpiled shampoo and toothpaste?.. Seldom-used silver polish? How do you know when their primes have passed?
With help from experts and product manufacturers, Real Simple has compiled a guide to expiration dates. These dates are offered as a rough guideline. The shelf lives of most products depend upon how you treat them. Edibles, unless otherwise indicated, should be stored in a cool, dry place. (With any food, of course, use common sense.) Household cleaners also do best in a dry place with a stable temperature. After the dates shown, beauty and cleaning products are probably still safe but may be less effective.
Beer – Unopened: 4 months.
Brown sugar - Indefinite shelf life, stored in a moistureproof container in a cool, dry place.
Chocolate (Hershey bar) – 1 year from production date
Coffee, canned ground – Unopened: 2 years – Opened: 1 month refrigerated
Olives, jarred (green with pimento) – Unopened: 3 years – Opened: 3 months
Olive oil - 2 years from manufacture date (After this time, color or flavor may be affected, but product is still generally safe to consume.)
Peanuts – Unopened: 1 to 2 years unless frozen or refrigerated – Opened: 1 to 2 weeks in airtight container
Incredibly… Most of your favorite movies have at least one mistake that makes it into the final release… Here’s a list of a bunch of them… MORE HERE
|17||Mr. and Mrs. Smith||The movie is supposed to take place in and around New York City, however during the car chase where Angelina and Brad are fighting off the three BMW’s, a wide shot clearly shows a street sign announcing Los Angeles.|
|19||The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King||In the second half of the film, Frodo has a scar on his lower right cheek, close to his chin. Many times throughout the rest of the film the scar changes position and size on his right cheek. It also appears on his left cheek in flipped shots (most obviously on the slopes of Mount Doom when Sam is cradling his head).|
|21||Terminator 2: Judgment Day||The T-1000 punches his body through the window of a helicopter to get inside. An instant later, the hole in the windshield is gone.|
|23||Raiders of the Lost Ark||While Indy and Marion are in the Well of the Souls, and they encounter the snakes, Indy falls to the ground only to get confronted by a Cobra rearing its head and hissing. Look carefully and you’ll see the reflection of the snake on the safety glass between it and Indy. Briefly you can also see the torch’s reflection while he’s waving it around. This has been corrected in the new DVD set. You can only see it if you have the original VHS. I think it’s visible in the “making of” on the DVD as well.|
