    The expiration date on can goods is mostly BS, you can go on youtube and find videos of people eating food from the 40's - 50's. It's not all edible but if can is in good shape and it's doesn't smell off it likely won't kill you.

    Expiration dates are a government mandated thing that isn’t really tied to when the food actually goes bad. I have been working in and around the food industry for the last 10 years and you would be surprised on the amount of good food that stores and manufacturers throw out because of that arbitrary date.

    I was in the wholesale food business for many years---we packaged products for major supermarket chain stores---we had no products under our own name, only very large amounts packed for others. We were required by law to include a "Best by" date to be printed on every batch of product---this was done to "insure" freshness and also to identify each batch in case of recall for whatever reason. We just stamped a date one year out from date of packaging---nice and simple, everybody was happy---had absolutely NOTHING to do with when the food was no longer good...

    See if you have a Mormon store in your area (you don’t have to be Mormon to shop there). Good selection of dry goods in #10 cans and better prices than Costco or Amazon. Cases or single cans with 20 year shelf life on a lot of their items. We got sugar, flour, rice, black beans, pinto beans, dehydrated milk, and other items to supplement our emergency food supplies.
