Today, I was eating cereal while absentmindedly reading the box. I was amused when I found it expires on my birthday. Then I realized it expired on my birthday two years ago. FML

Unless they went to an antique shop, I'm pretty sure the cereal didn't spend it's time aging at a store. It's more likely that it sat around in the OP's house for 3 years.

Sometimes it can. Me and my mom got three year old sour cream from coborns, and we actually ate some before realizing it.

#31 Could you tell us where exactly do you grocery shop, so that we can avoid this place?

Well it obvisously didn't taste expired if you didn't realize that when you took the first bite...

As long as it was lucky charms then it's still ok to eat.

35- Coborns... They're retarded, they even put there Monster in the dog food section.

OP didn't say it's his birthday, at all...just that the cereal expired on his birthday two years ago.

Actually I don't think it would taste that bad probaly just stale and the milk would help that

He never mentioned that he kept eating it

Hey time to take some laxatives! U don't want those things in your stomach for long . For all u know there maybe maggots. Better play safe than sorry.

Yes. You ate some chewy Fruitloops, now go puke/shit your guts out for a few hours.

I think OP would see maggots. They are hard to miss.

That happened to me once, but the cereal wasn't expired. I was eating some Cheerios and I didn't notice the maggots until I ate two spoonfuls. It was gross.

#55 - You should have submitted that. That's a better FML than the OP's.

Hey, wait, my Rice Krispies are moving.

Um that's nothing, it's the snap, crackle, pop you're seeing. Yeah that's it.

KiddNYC1O 20

I've heard them crackle and pop but never snap.

Tastes so good- make you wanna slap yo momma!

Sorry OP :/ I did the same thing but with sour cream... Luckily I only ate about 2 bites, my mom wasn't so lucky...

So it runs in the family, eh? Family fear factor

What a lovely way to start the day

And that's why you ALWAYS CHECK THE DATE!

Hahaha so TRUE! I have a habit of finishing my meal and then check the expiration date, I don't know whether if I should vomit or not lol :/
