My rotund former roommate bought this to help
herself lose weight… And she did eat some of it… along with potato chips
and ice cream. When it became clear she wasn’t really going to do
the Nutrisystem diet, we boxed it up and put it in the garage as
Well fast forward a couple of years, she moves and
leaves all that yummy Nutrisystem food. And now it’s time for me to
move and I don’t want it.
Who would want expired Nutrisystem food, even
if it’s a good deal? You may ask.
I can think of at least three groups of people who
would want this:
- People successfully
living the Nutrisystem diet or people wanting to successfully
live the Nutrisystem diet.
- Earthquake, Tornado,
Tsunami, Hurricane, Snowed In, Flood, Locust or Other Pestilence
- Veterans wanting to
relive the MRE (Meals Ready to Eat) experience.
But, some of it is expired.
You say - with a bit of a whiny tone.
Look, if you’re familiar with Nutrisystem “food”
you know this stuff is packaged to survive a nuclear attack. I can’t
imagine anything in this stuff would/could go bad before your
grandchildren finish college. I tried a bag of Soy Cheddar Chips
and I didn’t taste anything that I thought would go bad before the
Pyramids were dust.
I have lovingly (and neurotically) sorted it all.

If you are still hung up on the “expired” thing,
let me put it to you this way -- I’ve had “Lasagna” in a box in my
garage for the last few years exposed to the summers and winters of the
San Fernando Valley; and if I read the box correctly, this was “good”
until a few days ago (expired Jan 08). Do you really think 2, 3, 5 or
20 years is really going to make a difference? Besides, many of the
items have no expiration date at all -- which must mean they’re
shelving unit NOT included; but I have some Tums I would throw in upon
