Fruitcake already has a reputation for lasting a questionably long time.

Conservators from the Antarctic Heritage Trust have discovered one that’s about 100 years old, and incredibly, appears fine to eat.

The fruitcake likely dates to the Terra Nova expedition of 1910-1913, led by British explorer Robert Falcon Scott. 

Made by British biscuit company Huntley & Palmers, it was found in a hut in Cape Adare, which was one of the first buildings erected on the continent and the base for Scott’s expedition.
