I bought mostly to taste test a while back, as well as an opportunity to diversify what I have. Would definitely be a decent option for bug out, but I don't really intend on bugging anywhere.
Yeah, I am not too concerned about the date for personal use. I've eaten many canned goods that were way beyond their date. Particularly recently. Gotta watch out for mandarin oranges, those cans can be explosive.
I have year round access to local grown oranges, tangerines and such
so I don't do canned ones.
Good to know about Tin canned ones for guys not so lucky.
For canned goods I only watch for bulging, damage, and bad smells.
I've got stuff 8 years old and it is still good.
But you can't kill SPAM.
