One of the good things that can come out of quarantine is finding time for things that you have been putting off for a long time. Many people out there are using this time wisely. Some do simple home renovations, others are starting art projects, and let's not forget those who finally have the time to organize their closets and cupboards and also get rid of things that haven't been used in a long time. That's the course Michael Patrick's mother decide to take and her cleaning adventure went viral!

Apparently, the woman decided to get to the bottom of her 30-year-old chest freezer and found something unexpected--25-year-old puff pastry. Her son couldn't believe his eyes when he saw this long-expired pastry and couldn't help but share it with his twitter followers.

However, his mom had some other idea of what to do with it. So, she decided to eat it and according to herself and Michael, it still tastes good. Well, let's just hope there will be no side effects of this after discovering this hidden 'treasure'.

While some people reacted by saying that food items shouldn't be consumed this long after the expiration date, others disagreed and shared their own decades-old groceries that got forgotten in their freezers and shelves, some of which were eaten, too. Scroll below for the list!

Is this the new Tide pods challenge or something? People seem very eager to poison themselves for the possibility of attention from strangers who think they're an idiot.

Might be able to clean up those rust stains by pouring some Coca-Cola over it. :-)

don't throw that out, that's a collector's item and also I don't think it counts, because someone probably purposely kept that AS a collector's item

if it's in the shed, it's been used to hold something else and is not what the label says. It's probably some poisonous weed killer.

As a Brit in America I feel I should point out that in the UK mincemeat is like a fruit chutney, and does not actually have any meat in it!

LOL, either it held sentimental value to her, or it was gross and she didn't have the heart to trash it. By the way, I was born in 1983. :-)

With the amount of booze that goes into Christmas pudding that may still be edible...I wouldn't risk it though.
