“Opening 60-Year-Old Survival White Bread From A Fallout Shelter”

A hand holds a can of bread upside down over a plate. We can only see a small peak of the bread as it's coming out of the can. On the counter are decor from the Fallout series, including a sign that says "Rad Away," a Vault Boy figurine, and a Nuka-Cola bottle.

Part of the fun in social media is checking out niche interests, both your own and the ones you stumble across. If you’ve ever seen any of Mrs.Fallout’s videos, odds are, you’re a fan of the popular video game series Fallout. But even if you’re not a fan, like myself, there’s still lots of interesting videos on her page that relate to fallout shelters — the one below shows the content creator opening up a can of white bread.

People Have Mixed Feelings Over 60-Year-Old Fallout Shelter Bread

“Texas Roadhouse honey butter would fix that right up,” someone jokes, defending the edibility of the old bread.

Meanwhile, others are less focused on the potential taste of the bread and are, instead, taking a moment to process their own age compared to that of this fallout shelter bread.

“That bread’s as old as I am,” someone points out. “Makes me feel… well, stale.”
