Basically, I have acquired a mint and unopened box of vintage 1975 Compo, more out of curiosity than anything else. On looking inside, I found that it was the old Menu A, containing such joys as Chicken Curry, Apple Flakes, Spangles, and milk in a tube.

I know I probably shouldn't, but part of me really wants to see what it tastes like.

The question is, will it kill me? Or will it make me stronger, like all the old sweats on here who have eaten it before? I must admit, I am tempted by the Spangles, whatever they are....

Arrsers, I bow to your wisdom.... eat, or save for posterity?

Edited for typo and to add clicky.

Is it in the tins?

If so i wouldn't be surprised of the internal coating has all peeled off onto the food.

Yes, it's in the tins, even the "Cheese Possessed" is in some kind of neat little tin.

The milk and margarine in the tubes seem ok.
Hey, I've had that.

It's not that old :evil:

Get amongst it!

Whats the worst that can happen, sit on the toilet all night? I presume you have a phone near by with the number 9 still fully functional?

The marge will be ok, the grease in it will have prevented the tin corroding.

Not too sure about the other stuff. I think I would only eat the apple flakes.


Give it to the local school when harvest festival comes and then look at the local papers for cases of food poisoning amongst pensioners.

I like the kids response. If you have two, hold one back to care for you in old age. Or to poke you with a stick. Whichever...

Not sure why I know this, but Spangles are those square boiled sweets. Look like the old Tunes.
