Unfortunately, once the quantity of the once prohibitively expensive food became available to me, I completely lost interest and it was left to languish on the shelves untouched for months.
Now I have a lot of "expired" food - most from June to August 2008. Now I know that eating it will most likely not kill me, but it depresses me nonetheless.
So I'm getting rid of the food today. It makes me feel terrible, but at least I've learned a lesson: don't even attempt to buy in bulk unless I can determine the quality of the food before I purchase it.
