Hi Lifehacker, On a recent visit to the supermarket I noticed a tin of tuna I picked up did not have an expiry date. On further inspection, neither did any of the other tins either. Isn’t it mandatory to display the expiry date on food items in Australia? If not, how can you when it’s about to go off? Are you supposed to just guess?
Pumpkin pie. It sounds weird to anyone born in Australia, where pumpkin is reserved for soup, roast dinners and occasionally for mixing in with mashed potato to make it a little bit healthier. We certainly don’t see it as a sweet food, much less a dessert, though as it turns out pumpkin pie is actually a delicious dessert that every Australian should try at some point in their life.
