Lakewood family purchases granola that expired 21 years ago

LAKEWOOD, Colo. - Nineties throwbacks may be the popular fad recently, but one Lakewood family didn't expect to find a  '90s relic in the grocery aisles of a Littleton Walmart.

But that's what the Carelses got when they bought a box of Quaker 100% Natural Granola cereal on Monday, according to our partners at Denver7. They noticed something was a little off when they had a serving, and so they checked the expiration date.

"FEB2297," the box reads.

That means unless we're all reading that wrong, this box of granola is older than current high schoolers. There's a decent chance that the workers who packed the box were probably listening to the latest Backstreet Boys or Spice Girls single as the box went down the line.

Denver7 reached out to both Walmart and PepsiCo for more information about the generational granola, but no official word has been given yet.
