      I ate some from about 5 years ago. It was the same.
      long story short, I was drunk, also hungry, no food in the house, and didn't want to drive.
      I also think they last forever

      Ramen is the cockroach of the food world. It can survive a nuclear war.

      the plastic and styrofoam of the packaging will break down before it does

      Don't worry about it. If it did go bad, you wouldn't even know.

      I lived that story, and wanted to make sure I'm not gonna die. I found a case in the back of my pantry that's about 7 years old.

      x2. If I had a bomb shelter, I'd stock it with Ramen. I think they found ancient Ramen in the Pharohs tombs.

      It'll last long enough, even when Skynet takes over and destroys most of the world.

      If there's an oil packet, that will smell rancid if it's bad, but otherwise the noodles are several years at least.

      Yeah, but I thought they stopped making Twinkies...meaning supplies are already limited and we haven't even begun to lob the nukes.
