Who knew that they had delicious off-brand Thin Mints at the beginning of the 20th century? We didn’t. Yet John discovered this box of cookies that expired way back in 1914. Yet it has a UPC and brags that the cardboard is 100% post-consumer waste. What is this madness?

Or, as one astute reader wrote in to point out, it could be January 19, 2014. (JAN 1/9/14.) We thought of that too, but why duplicate the “January”?
