Any of these things can be found in your kitchen cabinets:
A collection of six sets of salt and pepper shakers, plus five--count 'em--five stray pepper shakers, one stray salt shaker, and four assorted salt and pepper grinders.
The world's oldest baking chocolate. I know that my mom has had that paper-wrapped stuff since I was little because I remember tasting it and thinking it sure didn't taste like a Hershey bar!
The world's oldest marshmallow--found loose on the top shelf of the spice/baking cabinet. No telling how long it had been up there. It actually looked worse in real life; it was dried out and dark! Yuck!
The world's oldest onion soup mix. Another yuck! Mom had this stuck in a tupperware container on the top shelf of that cabinet. Another item of indeterminate age--I'm betting on at least 20!
I'm pretty sure that some of the spices that I have yet to go through belonged to my grandmother, who died 46 years ago.
Yep, good times!
