Thou Shalt Not Waste

A friend brought a bag of these to my Christmas party back in December (obviously) and left it in my kitchen. For two months, I did not really bothered about it. Now I assumed it was untouched as it looked unopened. Three days ago I finally got around to it after feeling an itch to munch. To my horror, I found that the bag was opened. The contents exposed to the elements of my kitchen all this time.

And then curiosity got the best of me. I picked a piece from the bag and inspected it. No mold, no sign of a household pest infestation. Slowly, I drew the pretzel close to my mouth and I took a sniff. No offending odour. Then almost an afterthought, I popped it gingerly into my mouth and took a bite.

Two days later, I finished the whole bag. All 10 ounce of it.

Ah. Artificial food preservatives. Truly God's gift to mankind. :P
