How long does honey take to spoil?
A) 6 months
B) 1 year
C) 10 years
D) 500+ years


Answer:
D) 500+ years

Okay, I'm sure not all styles of honey meet this standard, but truly honey is possibly the one food that never spoils if kept airtight (not making it susseptable to airborne yeasts). Archeologists tasted honey in tombs of Egyptian pharaohs and found it to still be edible.
