It seems these days food containing preservatives and liquor can stretch a ‘sell-by-date’ to, well, infinity! A shopper at Marks & Spencer in Westfield Stratford City shopping mall, in East London, spotted an ‘irresistible’ offer; mini Christmas puddings on a ‘three for two’ offer. Sell-by-date? 20/10 2015! I suspect the Christmas puddings were old stock! Surely it would have been better to have given the puds away to food banks rather than receive negative press?
