If you're anything like me, you have a large stockpile of canned goods somewhere in your home. You know…in case of an emergency. My plan, should the apocalypse arrive, is to become a food merchant and slowly rebuild society with the wealth and power I accumulate. But a recent article I came across might just throw a wrench in the gears.
Matt over at DinosaurDracula.com recently came across an old can of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Chef Boyardee from 1991. I remember eating this back in the day and it was delicious. But how does a can like this age? The answer is not very well.
The glorious can itself!
The moment of truth. I can imagine the smell wasn't very pleasant based on what comes next.
The contents of the entire can managed to dehydrate down into one small clump.
That does not look appetizing at all.
It was apparently pretty solid. It took Matt a while, but eventually, he was able to split the ball in two.
He decided to make a label and keep it forever.
Well, that really makes me question just how durable and valuable my canned goods would be in a post-apocalyptic world. I guess it's back to the drawing board for me.
