* An extra feature in the DVD for ''Film/SuperSizeMe'' has Morgan Spurlock keep various UsefulNotes/McDonalds burgers, and fries, in jars to see how long it takes for them to go bad, with a local independent burger joint providing a control. The indie burger and fries went bad within the first week. The [=McBurgers=] lasted a few weeks longer. The [=McFries=] went for ''ten weeks'' without looking any different, at which point the intern accidentally threw the fries away. One could infer that the fries could last even longer.

This was intended to imply how artificial they are, but anyone who knows basic biology will know that mold requires moisture to grow, and the [=McDonalds=] burger and fries were much too thin to hold water for long, thus they dried out before any mold could take.

Added DiffLines:

* A YouTube video exists of a twelve year old [[InstantRamen Pot Noodle]] being reconstituted with boiling water. And eaten. Chicken and mushroom flavour, apparently.

* One of [[Ashens]] main recurring features is predicated around this. Usually proving that no, things generally don't last forever.

Added DiffLines:

* The sailors and Marines of ''Literature/TheLostFleet'' (by the same author, writing as Jack Campbell) frequently have to subsist on ration bars left behind on mothballed enemy facilities in [[DyingTown worlds bypassed by the]] [[PortalNetwork hyperspace gate network]]. The best that can be said about them is that they make fewer sailors complain about short rations. Their still being edible despite being WayPastTheExpirationDate -by ''decades'' in many cases- is justified by their usually being stored in hard vacuum.

* Subverted with woolly mammoth meat. Despite a persistent UrbanLegend about mammoth steaks being served at a paleontologist convention, woolly mammoth carcasses that have been found frozen in Siberia or Alaska have all spoiled almost instantly upon being thawed and have been completely inedible.

* Several of [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Noah "The Spoony One" Antwiler's]] old [[WebVideo/CounterMonkey gaming stories]] mention a pizza joint called Peter Piper Pizza, which served some of the most godawful, greasy pizza known to man. [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2011/10/24/counter-monkey-the-toilet-pizza/ One story in particular]] involves him finding a month-old Peter Piper's pizza in the bathroom of the gaming store that he worked at. Instead of rotting, growing mold, or decaying in any way, the pizza had become glazed over with a barrier of hardened grease, leaving it ''looking'' more or less normal save for a weird plastic-y sheen.
