I'd be surprised if most of those things went off ever - Marmite, for instance, is almost certainly too salty for anything to live in it. The flapjacks might conceivably have gone mouldy, but flapjack mix is basically porridge and porridge doesn't go off if kept dry, as I understand it. The yeast may not work, in which case you'll get a flat loaf and have to replace it - it won't kill you. The Philadelphia should probably be eaten quickly, but if you haven't opened it it's probably still OK. Incidentally, I reckon that you shouldn't eat supermarket Brie or Camembert until at least a week after the "Best Before" date - they sell them ridiculously young, and the flavour needs more time to develop. Of course, you should really buy your cheese at vast cost from a wizened geriatric cheesemaker who's been in the business for four generations and/or a ruddy-cheeked yokel in a traditional smock at an organic farmers' market and blah blah blah.

I suspect the average halophile rather likes Marmite :)

Here's wondering if anyone has actually tried growing them in it..
