#53: Expiration Dates
Got another weird one for you, folks! According to this Reddit user, all chips go out of date on a Saturday. Now, this one is pretty weird. But with a little research done, it kind of makes sense. Basically, the production of crisps always begins on Sundays. So, when they makes their Best Of dates, they always use the last day of their week – which would be a Saturday.
This makes sense when you learn the reasoning behind it, but it’s still one of those very weird useless facts that make you sit and think for a bit. The reasoning makes sense, but it’s still an odd fact that will sit with me for some time! And how did this person even discover this utterly random fact?
