So, I'm sitting in my office, and I suddenly get a craving for a soda. Then I remember, I have this ultra-mini-fridge in my office (the storage capacity is pretty much 1 six pack). I remember putting an opened 20oz soda in there, but I don't remember ever getting it out. Sure enough, I check and it's still in there.
I immediately open it and start drinking. Then the realization that I really can't say for sure how long it must've been there. At first I thought perhaps a week, now I'm thinking closer to 5 weeks... I've been trying to tell myself that there's nothing wrong with it, but I'm not feeling so hot right now.
What's the worst that could happen? It's been closed and regridgerated, but it's been opened probably since late feb, early march. The thought I keep coming back to is that it's a diet coke, so no sugar for stuff to grown on, I think.
While I sit here and contemplate my impending doom, what's the worst/nastiest thing you've ever consumed from a fridge that was probably past it's prime?
For me, I once grabbed a 1 pt milk carton out of my dad's work refridgerator that I thought was left over from my breakfast that day. What I actually grabbed was probably left over from the New Deal. That was the day I learned what happens to milk when it gets old; not only does it turn into a solid, but it also gets this putrid taste that you can never really forget.
