Eating Pre-Sept. 11 Raisin Bran

Here's the top panel from the box of Kellogg's Raisin Bran I opened for breakfast. Note the "Better if used before" date -- AUG 21 2000:


I would be lying if I said this was unusual for my pantry.

In addition to being about 7 years old, it's also Raisin Bran from another era.

Pre-9/11 Raisin Bran.

It tasted like... a more innocent Raisin Bran.

I got your Time Capsule right here.

Actually, it wasn't rancid or particularly stale. And being Raisin Bran, it's not like it's got a lot of flavor to lose in the first place.

I would definitely rate it first grade Raisin Bran (since it would be enrolled in elementary school by now).

  • That's great...from the more recent posts, I'm glad to see you didn't die. Don't try the same with milk. :)

  • "A more innocent raisin bran." Awesome. But as much as I'd love a return to innocence, I don't think I would have eaten this.

  • I once pulled out some calamine lotion from the medicine cabinet so that I could put it on some poison ivy. Then I noticed it had a Peoples Drugstore label - that's what CVS was before it was CVS. Yeah.

  • Dan: I find that when milk passes the tipping point, it clumps up and doesn't pour, thus solving the problem.

    Robert: I am saving a sample for the 9/11 truthers, so they can determine whether my Raisin Bran had prior knowledge of the attacks.

    Bozoette: But how did the calamine lotion taste?

  • Love them preservatives.

    Throw a processed food on the ground outside, and come back a few weeks later. If it's still there and looks the same, you know it's not natural.
