The last jar of dip left from Christmas '20 has a BBE during the month. Must buy some generic-doritos.
Did have a pudding from Christmas '19 at about Easter though!
I found a tub of heroes at the weekend. A little past its bbe, dont think that will stop any of us though. Also found some Cadbury fingers and a couple of mini skittles packs from a selection box. I think we buy too much at Christmas.
Have you tried the the dark chocolate fingers (Bournville), they are vegan and taste great. We have been using them in the kids ice creams at home instead of flakes.
Have a whole Christmas cake in the press that a neighbour made for us last year.
That'll be good for another 4 or 5 years yet (depending on how much alcohol they put in it 😉)
Not yet, but think I've got a box of the choc orange ones, can't wait to try them. We love the fingers at Christmas so buy a few boxes, then my parents gave us one of the giant boxes, with 5 or 6 packs in it so we're still finding them at the back of presses.
Yes, it's fully encased in a thick layer of icing and I've heard that preserves it as well (no air getting into it I presume).
I found two christmas puddings from 2018 in the back of a press in the kitchen. Out of curiosity, I opened them, and they still looked and smelled exactly like xmas pudding should. Threw them away, but it just shows how effective boiling every ounce of nutrient value of out of something and steeping it in alcohol is at preserving it. They're practically embalmed!

I don't know about "boiling every ounce of nutrient value out of something" but I'm all for the "steeping it in alcohol" part😁🎅
Found 2 puddings last weekend. Ate a lovely one, with a BB date of Sept 20, along with mince pies from the freezer, last Saturday.
Fab aroma in the kitchen while boiling.
The second one will be demolished sometime soon.
I only really worry about BB dates on dairy and meat. For everything else if it passes the smell test then it's good to go :)
Already finished the first box of Lebkuchen from this year 😋 They taste much better now than at Christmas as they are fresher 😄
BTW, if anyone spots Stollen in Lidl please stick a post in here... I'll be keeping an eye out anyway but only call in every couple of weeks or so normally.
Am devastated :(
I wonder how this will effect their general stock levels. I really want their turkey pie that Loughc posted in the food thread. 😮
Ever since Brexit their range has reduced, with the closure of M&S food stores in France and the Czech Republic announced this week you wonder if they will still scaling back here.
Wish they would say 'Due to Brexit.....'
