Fun at the Grocery Store: Expiration Dates (Slim Jims)
Yeah I know, eating a Slim Jim is like licking the floor of the
meat plant...;) ;)
But I like them and so do my dogs. LOL
Anyway, Slim Jims have expiration dates on the packages and
on the individual sticks.
Next time you pass them in your local grocery store, check the
Sunday, I found some that expired in NOVEMBER 2005; OCT 2006 and
many from 2007.
This has been a game of mine for over a year. Once a year or so
I contact ConAgra, makers of Slim Jims, and the local stores about this.
Because they are sold individually from boxes, the boxes get consolidated
by the store workers... Then when the expiration dates are checked, the
BOX date is probably used, instead of the individual stick dates.
Amazingly ConAgra and one local store can't seem to wrap their Customer
Service brains around this concept.
Anyway, that is my Fun at The Grocery Store... checking expiration dates.
You can also do this with most Kraft products like salad dressings. Whee!
