* In the ''Literature/CodexAlera'' series, ship's tack is treated as borderline inedible -- hard, tasteless bits of bread that are valued for their longevity, not their taste. At one point, a Canim wolf-man is offered some, takes a bite, chews, and then reflects that the humans he's traveling with are tougher than he thought if ''this'' is what they eat.

** In [[JustBeforeTheEnd the intro]] to ''VideoGame/Fallout4'', you can inspect some food in the pantry. Your character will [[LampshadeHanging check the expiration date, which is Never]].

* ''WorldOfWarcraft'' has cooking recipes including Egg Nog, Spice Bread, Hot Lion Chops, Hot Wolf Ribs, Hot Apple Cider and Hot Buttered Trout and purchasable item Ice Cold Milk. The Egg Nog never gets funky, nobody has ever eaten "Stale, Moldy Spice Bread," the milk never turns into "Lukewarm, Curdled Milk," and the other recipes never turn into, e.g. "Room-temperature Wolf Ribs." Not to mention all the other cooked meals that you would expect to go off after a short time or just be totally disgusting if not freshly cooked.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2I6Et1JkidnnbWgJFiMeHA One particular Youtuber]] Steve1989]] is the chief of the Youtube Ration Reviewing community for his mettle examining vastly out of date rations, rather than just stuff expected to be edible. Some highlights:
** He
has an entire channel of him eating a great love for can-era US military rations dating back to WWII, peanut butter, which he's had over 60 years old and even still perfectly good besides oil separation.
** Coffee Instant Type 1 and non-dairy creamer from
a piece of AmericanCivilWar hardtack. 1942-dated US Army ration, enjoyed in 2017
** American Civil War vintage hard tack.

* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'': Lembas (which is not bread).[[note]]The movies incorrectly refer to it as "Lembas Bread" but in the books, lembas is often referred to as "cakes" or "wafers." Both lembas and cram are described in a way which indicates they are canonically a biscuit.[[/note]] As long as it's in the original leaf wrapping, it can stay fresh for a long time, and even if you unwrap it, it seems to last quite a while. (Sam kept an emergency ration stashed away somewhere for several months to no ill effects.) ''Cram'' or waybread, made by humans, is a more realistically tasteless long-lasting ration. Lembas, being elven, is still delicious months later. Then again, it ''is'' made by elves. All products of elven craftsmanship are at least somewhat magical and are by default ten times better than the equivalent human product. It's how Middle-Earth elves roll.

Lembas however are not actually an elven creation. The special corn used to make them was a gift from the Vala Yavanna, and the original recipe was a gift from the Maia Melian. Lembas are literally divine.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meal_ready_to_eat Meal, Ready to Eat]]. Shelf life is nominally three and a half years at 27 degrees Celsius (81 degrees Fahrenheit) so long as it is kept sealed. In long term storage, it is kept at -18 degrees Celsius (0 degrees Fahrenheit) and can last longer without affecting the quality (which in the earlier ones was certainly dubious, leading to nicknames like "Meal, Rarely Edible").[[note]]Also [[FunWithAcronyms Meals Ready to Excrete, Meals Refusing to Exit]] (referring to their ability to cause constipation), [[FunWithAcronyms Meals Rejected by the Enemy, Meals Rejected by Everyone]], and even [[BlackComedy Meals Rejected by Ethiopians]].[[/note]]

** [=MREs=] eventually received improvements leading soldiers to regard the various types as different levels of bearable or even palatable. The cheese and vegetable omelet (frequently nicknamed "vomelet") however, remains pretty much universally detested.

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', there are three foods that will never go rotten (other food makes Snake prone to randomly throwing up at the worst possible time if it goes rotten): [=CalorieMates=] (tm), which are delicious, Instant Noodles, which are delicious ''and'' a delicacy, having not really made it out of Japan in 1964, and Russian Army Rations, which are absolutely disgusting, though if you feed him enough of them, he'll develop a taste for them.

It's also fairly realistic when you consider the prologue takes place over the course of just one day, and the main mission takes place over the course of four days. Their indestructibility is more in a meta sense - you can go a decade before resuming a saved game, and these items will still be fine, while waiting just one week before resuming a saved game will cause your wild-caught foods to spoil.

* [[http://www.msn.com/en-au/news/world/century-old-fruitcake-found-perfectly-preserved-in-abandoned-antarctic-hut/ar-AApU1xq A perfectly preserved fruitcake]] was discovered at the Cape Adare camp in Antarctica from an expidition that ended in 1911. The cake itself was perfectly preserved and is still edible, even though the tin that contained it was decayed and rotting away.
