    Would it be a bad idea to eat soup that is 12 years past expiration date?
    I found a dozen cans of Campbells cream of asparagus soup in my pantry that has a 1997 expiration date. The cans show no signs of damage, and are not puffed out. The soup smells ok.

    Do I toss the bunch out, that is today's one million dollar question?

    Try it, and we'll keep an eye on the Silent Keys column.:p

    I'd toss it, myself.

    You might want to ship it all to WA6MHZ. He won't let it go to waste.........He could pour it on top of his ramen noodles as he drives to work in the Blackwidow Mobile.

    I'd give a call to Campbell's Consumer Hotline to find out, though they may automatically say that anything eaten after its expiration date isn't recommended.

    Find a dog and let it lap it up: if it's dead in the morning then you'll know.

    Go to the store and buy 12 new cans. Then take the 12 old cans and receipt back to the store and ask them why they are selling such old product.

    Ok, don't actually do that, it's just not right. Besides there would be questions if you had the only cans returned plus the label has likely changed since then and would be very noticeable.

    Save them another 12 years and sell them on Ebay. Campbell Soup might be bankrupt by then. :)
