Do Slim Jims Go Bad? LOL

DH is on a business trip, and just texted that question to me. I told him it was safe to eat as long as it wasn't slimy or smelled bad. :) Men! I bet it's been in his briefcase for weeks.

  • My husband was reading an article about slim jims a while back. It said the grade of meat they use for them is called "utility grade". Sounds tasty! lol I told one of my daughters (she loooves them) & she just shrugged & said "It's yummy utility meat!"

  • Sorry once I read the ingredients in one, I was sick to my stomach. Mechanically separated chicken?

  • They do have an expiration date on them - I used to work in a grocery store and I remember having to pick through a whole display of them looking for outdated ones.
