A consumer reports

Perhaps a month ago, I found that I had in my possession a tin of Altoids which bore the legend, Best before April 2017.  (Let’s say I rediscovered the tin in March of 2018.)  The box was better than half full, and no, I was not going to pitch it in the trash without first checking the contents.

It is with confident pleasure that I can report that these mints were perfectly fine and unspoilt, and that there was nothing at all in my experience of the Altoids to provoke regret that I had not instead consumed them prior to May of 2017.

Carry on.
