Was mixing the Christmas cake this morning. DH went down to the cellar to find the treacle and wouldn't let me use it. Was best before March 1996 blush

Fortunately I had another unopened tin lurking at the back of the cupboard. Left to myself, I would have used it.

What would you have done?

I would have opened it and tasted it after all it's a by product of sugar which lasts forever I think! it may have tasted metallic though!

I didn't use my out of date one last year as I read on the side of the tin if its kept beyond it can explode when you open it......
