We often forget to check the expiry date on the food cartons, and often suffer with anxiety about them going bad sooner or later. Sometimes, we also tend to pick food without looking at the expiry date, only to realize later that we can’t eat it. But, here are eleven foods that you can put in your cart without looking for any dates on them.1
Honey is one of those foods which can never ever go bad. It may change color and become crystallized, but they are still safe to eat. Just place the open jar in warm water until the crystal dissolve.
Even if it develops thick layers of dust on the bag or box, the rice inside the box is just as good as they were in day one. Although, brown rice has a higher oil content, which makes them turn rancid in some weeks.
