Exploding Hummus, Blue Coconut Milk And Other Tales Of Questionable Food


We've all been there: the questionable salad dressing, the leftover, room-temperature pork, the scary tuna sandwich. Should you eat it? Probably not, but for all the close calls, fortunately there's a place to go online for answers -- and if not answers, then at least a lot of passionate opinions. Thankfully, Macbebekin rounded up all the most hilarious and misguided 'Am I gunna die if I eat this?' questions posed on Ask Metafilter, here and here.

Highlights as follows:

  • Why did my hummus explode?

  • What are those cobwebs I find sometimes in walnuts?

  • Can I eat a live wasp?

  • But hey, this is expensive crab meat.

  • I have an 8.45 ounce bottle of Sam Adams Triple Bock, ca. 1994 ... Safe to drink?

  • I used half a can of organic, light coconut milk ... two weeks later I unearthed it ... and it was blue. Vibrant, eye-stinging, cobalt blue ... But why?
