If it's still wrapped, it's still good. Fact or fiction?

I'm tearing up my living room looking for my remote and I found an old Starburst. I remember the old commercial where a guy found one in the back of his car and he ate it because it's still wrapped. I can't remember ever buying Starburst, and I think this might have come with the couch. But it's still wrapped, does that mean it's still good?

I'm a bit picky with food and don't eat anything, not even wrapped candy, if it's gone out of date. Of course, without the rest of the packet you won't know if its out of date or not! I'd suggest throwing it away and going out and buying a nice new packet of Starburst! How long ago was it that Opal fruit changed to Starburst? Do you remember the change over?

I would say if it is still wrapped you are just fine. Just be careful you don't break your teeth. :) And if you do get sick make sure you laugh about it later.

You can probably still eat it. But, after a while, they get awful hard.
