Question
Do you know how long someone can store can goods, cereals, crackers, peanuts, soda, water, cookies,olives in juice, canned hams, spam and vienna weiners, canned soups, peanut butter, potato chips and other things in a storage before it goods bad?

Answer
Raymond. the list you have is too diversified. They all have different shelf life. It could range from 6 months to two years depending on the packaging used. Glass and canned products can have 12 to 24 months. Cereal boxes could have 6 months.

The best way to check is to go to super market and note expiration date for each along with production date.

Hope this helps.
