Three pound bag of dried fruits and nuts including apricots, passion fruit, pineapple, cherries, cranberries, grapes(raisins) and bananas. Walnuts and almonds.

I bought this thing almost 6 months ago and it has been sitting in my desk drawer here at work. Ever month or so I remember I have it and eat some. I just poured some out and it still looks fine. Still tastes fresh.

How long does this stuff last? There is no date on the bag.

With proper storage and depending on the fruit 3 months to a year…

Your desk drawer does not qualify as proper storage… you should be dead in about 30 min.
(give or take 20 min to several decades)

3 co-workers stopped by and just helped themselves too. Then one asked "did you just get that today" and I said, "nope, same bag I have had for 6 months". You should have seen her face.

OUTSTANDING!

I can't stand it when people just walk up and help themselves without asking!

The thing you have to watch out for with dried fruits is insect growth. I know it sounds ridiculous but I've seen it with my own eyes. Insects growing/thriving in the bottom of a couple of jars of dried fruit. The jars would just keep getting refilled never really completely emptying and the fruit on the bottom of the jar sat too long.

I guess it depends how airtight the container is also.
