Wonder Bread.

How long can I expect my loaf of Wonder Bread to stay good? I've had it for about a month and a half now.

Thanks!
Jessica

Wonder Bread will stay 'fresh' for ever. there are acutal loaves from the 50's that are still around today and still fresh.

Frozen?: You're good to go!
Refrigerated?: Possibly still good....
In a breadbox?: Maybe....
Left out in the open?: Check for lotsa green stuff.

My loaves never last that long.

Somebody wrote somewhere, that scientists estimated Twinkies last over 100 years.

I wonder who got the grant to build the Twinkie enviromental decay chamber.

And just what does a Twinkie enviromental decay chamber do?
Bombard it with simulated solar radiation and acid rain?

I wonder what a Twinkie would do subjected to the vacuum of space..hmmmmm.

Sorry, I never think of Wonderbread...but I do think about Twinkies, but not as food.

The better question: What would a deep fried Twinkie do in the vacuum of space?

Hmm, would Wonder Bread ever go bad? Isn't it some kind of "bread substitute" made for astronauts to be enjoyed with Tang?

Toss it and get something whole wheat.

As far as I know, Wonder Bread is just about as good when it's a day old, a week old, or a year old.

Throw it out.

I had a cup of beyers yogurt on my shelf for 3.5 years, I tripled bagged it and threw it away last month, fearing that it would explode and wipe out my room.

[165], I do get lonely sometimes.

You guys, it's just in it's bag on my counter. Has been since day one. Here's the deal, it belonged to someone close to me who is now hospitalized, and I took this as a sign that his loaf of bread seems eternal.....he will get out of the hospital? Perhaps I just assign wayyy too much meaning to trivial life events. In any case, it's just crazy.

After being opened, one loaf still tasted fine after several weeks. Another one had mold after 2 months. But unopened, I have no idea. I hope it's previous owner is okay.

That was Pillsbury's Space Food Sticks. Now, if SBL could find some of those from the 70s they'd still be fresh today. Guaranteed!

If it's symbollic bread, then shellac it to preserve its "health". Hope your friend gets better.

Sorry, needs to be rye bread.
Rye ergotine poisoning was the medival St.Vitus dance.
Wildly uncontrolable spasms lasting days, and restricted blood circulation resulting in necrosis of the outer extremities.

Bad trip.

I guess as long as it's not moldy. I keep bread about two weeks, then moldy or not I feed it to the ducks!! Sometimes if I'm in a cooking mood I'll make bread pudding with it, that is if it's not moldy. Although what makes the best bread pudding is stale donuts or pastrys. Especially the kind with the jelly filling!!
