If you are stupid enough to leave a shopping bag in the car for 2 days...

Would you eat:
Quorn picnic eggs and chicken and veg soup?
I didn't unpack the bags, so didn't realise until this morning (ignored that nagging feeling that some things were missing!) Most of the stuff was cupboard stuff, so ok. Bottle of milk and some cheese will be easy to taste, but just concerned that the quorn and the soup may be an issue.
Weather was mixed here, not too hot, but then it was in the car?

Not after 2 days no. Maybe after 6 hours at a push.

Yeah, I’m pretty robust about these things, but I have to say that would be a no for me. I wouldn’t even be tasting the milk tbh.
The cheese Id probably eat though, maybe to cook with, but I think that would be fine.

Definitely not the picnic eggs are they are supposed to be kept refrigerated. If the soup is in a can, that’s OK, not if fresh.

BecomingMe Sat 23-May-20 07:54:44

No way.

I might consider it in January. But after the hot weather we’ve had recently? Definitely not.

MrsHuntGeneNotJeremyObviously Sat 23-May-20 07:54:58

No. Maybe I'd consider it if we were in the middle of winter and the car was cold but not in this weather.

Soup, yes. Picnic eggs, no

A car is more like a mini greenhouse not a fridge. If the food was left out on the kitchen work surface for 2 days, would you eat it?

There’s your answer.

Wagamamas Sat 23-May-20 07:56:03

Ew no.

BikeRunSki Sat 23-May-20 07:56:08

Cheese - yes
Milk - I’d smell it first and then decide
Quorn, veg soup - possibly, but probably not
Chicken - no

Ultrasoft Sat 23-May-20 07:56:27

I'm definitely not a throw it out because someone forgot to put it back in the fridge type but 2 days in the car, I would throw those items, assuming the soup is fresh, not tinned.

SnuggyBuggy Sat 23-May-20 07:57:32

In the dead of winter maybe but otherwise no. It must stink.

MadauntofA Sat 23-May-20 07:57:55

Hmmmm. Thanks - I'm pretty robust, and don't generally look at dates unless it is fresh meat, but knew that would be the sensible answer, just annoyed at the waste!

CeibaTree Sat 23-May-20 08:00:29

Not unless you live somewhere cold!

IncrediblySadToo Sat 23-May-20 08:00:36


If it was a hard cheddar I might cook with it, but I'd bin the rest absolutely and probably the cheese. There's nothing worth being ill over

Milk doesn't even have to smell or taste 'off' to make you ill. It's just not worth it!!

DrDreReturns Sat 23-May-20 08:06:46

As pp have said not this time of year. In the winter I would though.

QuestionMarkNow Sat 23-May-20 08:09:18

I am normally the type of would be quite happy to do that but the weather has been warm, and even if it hasn’t been that warm where you are, the car will have been warmer than outside.

Too long and not cold enough I’m afraid

MinorArcana Sat 23-May-20 08:13:48

No. I wouldn’t keep the milk either.

Cars get too hot inside when it’s sunny.

Roselilly36 Sat 23-May-20 08:15:45

No way

Dita73 Sat 23-May-20 08:19:01

No. Bin it
