Why ignore the maggots, they will be the only fresh ingredient! And to quote Sir Jagger himself, "Have a big hour, Don't mind the maggots."

As long as they are sealed, there won't be anything horribly wrong with them. They might be a tad stale, but who cares at that price?

Actually they will very likely, at some point, have maggots in them. That wasn't a joke. It won't be the day after they expire, but it is very common. I've had expired cereal bars before that ended up having maggots after a while. Lucky I noticed before chomping down.

Aren't maggots a natural enemy of the termite?

They don't break in...maggots are like fly larvae I think...something like that. They are already in the food, but too small to see. Nearly all food has it...just from flies that have landed on them and laid eggs at some point.

Don't believe me....take some raw hamburger, seal it as tight as you like, then let it sit until it spoils......see all the maggots in it.

I let my friend kill the termites. He's viscious. Or viscuous. He's one of those.
