    YES. You can eat a slim Jim that's been in your turkey vest for almost a year. They get a bit brittle but can be chewed.

    Whether you can survive eating it remains to be determined. It says best before November 4th 2016 , not it will kill you after November 4th.

    Will keep you updated if I can. :D

    Slim Jim's are the worst "meat" product ever produced. Enjoy the heartburn.

    I watch this guy on YouTube who buys "antique" mre's from all over the world. I've seen him eat military mre from Korea Vietnam gulf war, he'll even ww2. One had a slim Jim from the 90's . I'm sure you'll be fine :wave:

    It's a good one. It has left twice. I hallucinate that I call and the hallucination comes back. I think slim Jim's are made out of mushrooms. :D

    Just as long as you don't pick up any jersey gloves you find I think you'll be ok, or at least no worse than usual.

    Ohh I almost forgot, I helped the turkey population today, a big coon stood up in the road to read my license plate this morning, I let him get a good look.

    Should we ask Hawk if it's too early

    Always pack the white gold! Paper towels in a ziplock! Slim Jim is what is scraped out of the bottom of the slaughterhouse band-saw...
