How old would a tin of Sucrets have to be in order to not have a bar code?

I can't find an expiration date anywhere, and I think that the bar code (UPC) is right on the tin on the ones they're selling now. BTW, they are also recommending them for "smoker's throat", so I'm just sayin'...

    Bar codes were invented in the early 70s so it had to be before that.

    Not necessarily old, at all.

    Lots of times, this sort of thing comes in a multi-pack, often with "Individual units not marked for retail sale" on the multi-pack label. So, no UPC marking.

      Ah. I thought you were deciding whether an old package was safe to eat. :-)

      Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Product_Code has the first grocery bar code scan as occurring in 1974.
