Several months ago, my wife was throwing out several cans of expired mocha-flavored Ultra Slim Fast. She had tried it a few years ago, but did not like the taste, and these were the leftovers.
I don’t mind expired food, and even think it sometimes tastes better, so I retrieved them from the garbage and tried a can myself. A little bitter after-taste, but not bad. I could carry a can in my kayak for an emergency meal.
That night I got up to go to the bathroom, as usual, and I could clearly smell coffee brewing. Our coffee-maker does have a timer that we never use, so I groped my way to the kitchen to see if it had started by mistake. No, nothing there. I returned to the bathroom, and the coffee smell was still strong and very pleasant. It didn’t take long to discover the source.
I had drunk only half a can for lunch. I waited a day for the smell to disappear, then finished the can on the third day. The smell was back.
A quick Google search showed many others have noticed the same thing. This is a great quality, and the manufacturer would do well to advertise it. Nursing homes are always concerned with the smell of urine. All they need to do is feed their residents a little Ultra Slim Fast each day and the place will smell like Starbucks.
Give me a day’s notice and I will demonstrate it for you.
