Nice pics - thanks for sharing.

And I do have to say that I think it's funny as hell that as soon as you get over stomach flu, you go and open an almost 20-year old EPa entree. You're one brave man... :-)

Seltsam :shock:

Was the package damaged?! Maybe just a little, tiny hole?!
A just 16 years old EPa was spoilt...

I need a few stiff shots of vodka before looking at the picture of that EPA.

To eat it, 19 years old?....That's a medal right there.

Add in you'd just shook off gastric flu?...Congressional Medal Of Honour!

What is the problem with an 19 year fresh EPA ?

My wife and me tried in 2005 an 1974 EPA noodles in tomatosauce. Very delicious, only a liitle bit tinny.

Of course you have to take a look at what you eat and smell and taste it...but if everything is ok, why not to eat it ?

bye
