[WA] McCain Deli Inspired Frozen Pizza (B/B July 2019) $0.99 @ Spudshed Spearwood

224

Two varieties on sale:

  1. Smoked Ham and Caramelised Onion with Goats Cheese

  2. Roast Chicken and Smoked Ham with Garlic Aoili Drizzle

These pizzas are WELL past the best before date (July 2019, from what I saw), but what true Ozbargainer would let a little salmonella get in the way of a good deal?

      It's frozen. It's like to be freezer burnt and probably has a bit of a funky texture but it's fine to eat.

      McCain pizzas should be illegal to sell the moment they come out of the factory.

      •  

        Any frozen pizza makes Dominos look good. Not just McCain.

        What should be illegal is the photo on the box looking nothing remotely like the actual pizza inside.

    i mean, it IS frozen but 6 months expired? Personally i prolly would steer clear

  •  

    I used to buy and eat this stuff all the time back in my student days (from Rite Price in Prospect, SA). I'm still alive. Would happily grab/eat these if I lived nearby except for the fact my partner would probably cut my arm off for doing so :p

      Rite price is find if you enjoy absolutely foul incredibly stale food that resembles nothing like the fresh versions.

    This guy certainly wouldn't!

      Hilarious!!
      Best before is fine to eat. I used to have this argument all the time with people I used to work with. The nutritional value will have decreased, and things like taste and texture, but there is no chance of it making you ill unless they have been thawed.

      Having said that, selling things past their expiry date is illegal if done on purpose.

      There's a difference between the two terms, best before, and expires on/use by.

    Expired (even by a day) is not sellable and I wouldn't be eating unless the manufacturer has published a statement that it's safe.

      Best Before and Used By dates are 2 different things. Food Standards Australia explains more, but basically you are allowed to sell Best Before after the date.https://www.foodstandards.gov.au/consumer/labelling/dates/Pages/default.aspx

        Having said that, I wouldn't buy them and I'm pretty stingy

      • +1 vote

        I'm aware of the difference but I thought the Op was indicating they are expired/past use by

        WELL past due date

        But that being said, even if it was only just a best before, at six months… I value my wellbeing a little more than this :)

          Tinfoil much? With best before date the only thing that is different is taste and texture. So it might not taste as fresh as when it was fresh. As for past due date we buy milk that is about to expire today and still drink it 4-5 days after use by date. We are all still alive. If you were born some 200 years ago, how would you know what is best before or use by date? You wouldn't. Don't scare people for nothing.

          I'm not going to pull out the facts as I can't be bothered, which you can get from the official government departments, so go and do some research before you start scaremongering. People were eating food that was a tear or two after best before date, yet they are still alive and didn't end up in hospital because of it.

          Do you eat apples? Did you know that they sit frozen for a year before you get to buy them? Yet, people are not dying/sick because of old apples.

          And it would be against the law for spud shed to sell food that has expired if it is use by date, unless they can explain how it is still safe to eat, from the health department.

          If they've been frozen all the time, nothing wrong with them.

      BZZZT wrong, best before is fine to sell, expires on or use by is not. Facts please :)

    The question is, where they have been hiding them the last 6 months?

      Was sitting in some cold stores distribution center for ages before being sold for free to whomever took it away to flog in the discount disposal chains.

    It is just a "best before" date. It'll be fine. They're probably 18 months old now.

    I'd eat them for a dollar.

    July 2019! You've gotta be kidding!
    I know it's frozen, but come on.
    You gotta get sick from eating these.
    The best before on frozen food is usually a couple of years after it was made, these could be 3 years old.

    Nekminit Spud Shed is being fined by WA Health Authority for selling expired foods.

    As much as I hate wasting food, these pizzas are not fit for human consumption.

      These foods are not being sold past their use by date, they are best before dates. Please learn the difference

      Can confirm I have taken one for the team! Just ate the roast chicken pizza a couple hours ago. Tbh, it wasn't bad for a frozen pizza, and so far after baking it within an inch of its life, I am not sick…

    July 2019? Wow. Even though it's probably not illegal, these things should not be still being sold.

    "Most foods have a best before date. You can still eat foods for a while after the best before date as they should be safe but they may have lost some quality. Foods that have a best before date can legally be sold after that date provided the food is fit for human consumption."

    Might as well give this a go.

  • -1 vote

    Not gonna lie I would give this a go out of curiosity if it was available and near me and add a lot of sauce and chilli to kind of drown out the expired taste.

    Also I have this thing with sometimes challenging myself with food and whatnot.

    Still alive and kicking but yeah my body should be donated to science for observation I am thinking haha lol.

    Only time will tell if my experimentation translates to something awesome or fruitful.

    But most likely it will end in sickness, pain or death.

    Ah well such is life.

    Tried them anyway. Honestly the worst pizza I’ve ever eaten.
