    Default Non perishable food items

    What exactly constitute "non perishable food items?"

    Would a package of prawn crackers be considered such?

    I don't know, but I've heard an urban legend about a guy who, just a few years ago (i.e. within the past decade) who opened a package of Twinkies that came out of the bakery back in *1977*, and the Twinkies were still suitable for consumption.

    It's frightening if it's true.

    The prawn crackers aren't considered non-perishable food because they require cooking. Non-perishable food should be ready to eat food, such as raisins, cereals, chips, candy/power bars, nuts, and so forth. In addition, the food should have a long life.

    According to, and for the purposes of: http://election.dos.state.fl.us/init...xt/41372-1.htm
    The definition of non-perishable food items shall be any food items(s) made for human consumption that does not require further processing to be considered edible nor require special handling to remain edible after purchase.
