    OH, let me try that!

    I just had a bagel for breakfast, well, earlier to be accurate, and I topped it with cream cheese. Beautiful white, creamy, and so tasty.

    And it had expired Sept 2012. Now, this is the popular brand we all know well, and I didn't get it in a tub. It was the foil wrapped brick. No mold, no off flavors, just darned good cream cheese.

    I didn't do anything special to it. Just kept it in the fridge. It was actually opened after the exp. date. The reason I'm posting this is because I've talked about EXP dates before here, and how I think they're sort of bunk. Not everything, mind, but the best judge of such a thing isn't a stamped on date on a can or box, it's your eyes, nose, and tongue. If I was a 'noid about it, I would have wasted what, 3 bucks, and thrown away completely edible food. Instead, I opened it, smelled it, looked it over, and tasted it.

    Now, if I had opened it in Sept, I doubt it would have been any good, heheh. But you get the idea, and it doesn't just apply to cream cheese. Soups, veggies, boxed meals, etc, all have dates on them, but they are actually good FAR beyond that date.

    Jus' sayin'....

    Amen, OLMTT! I would have eaten it just as you, and I'd have done so w/o a second thought. As a matter of fact, I have some moz cheese in my fridge that has long expired, and I'm still eating on it. It has no sign of having gone bad. Why would I toss it?

    The best judge isn't a few numbers on a box or jar or can or sliver of plastic.

    You know this. I know this. Now, hopefully a few more do. Don't toss out that errant can that expires in March. It may feed you the September next.

    Tis' true! You know I once had a site saved to faves that gave all the various product deciphering codes for many of the products that still don't have codes that mean anything to the lay person. Might you have that saved? Some of the codes on products are still meaningful if you know what you are looking at. Some are still totally mumbo-jumbo. At least I don't find many of those, now, but I am a compulsive label and code reader icon_smile.gif
