Dude Opens a Can of Spider-Man Pasta from 1995 and It Does Not Disappoint

A dude who, judging by their Twitter feed is a huge fan of nostalgic kids stuff from the 80s and 90s, decided to relive his childhood with a can of Spider-Man pasta.

The only catch being that the can is actually from 1995. It can't still be good, can it?

Instead of keeping it as a collectible, @dinosaurdracula offered to open the can for his followers if the tweet got enough love. "I have a wildly corroded can of Spider-Man Pasta from 1995. And if this gets 1995 retweets, I'll show you what's inside."

Sure enough, the post got over 16,000 retweets and 78,000 likes, and Dinosaur Dracula kept his promise.

You'd think a sealed can would be decent at keeping its contacts somewhat viable after 25 years, right? Wrong.

He first shared a photo of using a can opener on the Chef Boyardee branded can. "I put the can opener to work, unsettled by the rust, but emboldened by the lack of noxious fumes. I turn the knob and wince, unable to rule out the possibility that the contents have mutated into something alive & malevolent."

Then, after opening the lid to show the disgusting contents, he writes, "They say tragedy plus time equals comedy, but there's nothing funny about 15 ounces of Spider-Man Pasta reduced to a rotted 3-ounce chunk. Recalling the fate of Jordy Verrill in Creepshow, I'm thankful for my rubber gloves."

Weirdly enough, he seems to find what appears to be the outline of one of the pieces of Spider-Man shaped pasta.
