    These days I usually drink almond milk. It has a shelf life of several months.

    One day, during a part-time job I was working, I made myself a peanut butter sandwich as part of my lunch one day. But when my coworkers and I stopped to take our lunch break, I knew as soon as I bit into the sandwich that there was something off about the peanut butter. Once I got home, I checked the jar that I had gotten the peanut butter from, and it turns that it was almost three years past the expiration date (not months, but years). I immediately threw it away after reading that.

    I recall a friend of mine who was from the UK who made that mistake with some cream in his coffee. In the UK, as well as many parts of the world, the expiration dates are given as day, month, year, not month, day, year. Thus 9-10 to him read as October 9, not September 10 like those in North America would surmise on that September 30th. As he was pretty hung over, the cream which had begun to curdle put him over the edge and the dude had the pukes for the whole morning. Afterwords, he made an intelligent observation: “Why don’t those ****ng buggers spell out the bloody month on the expiry date so anyone on the bloody planet would know the cream has gone bad!”.

    As Terry Pratchett once noted a better wish, one which would ensure better sleep at night, would be not to know now what you didn’t know then.

    Yeah, I learned that lesson the hard way. I got a pint of milk at a convenience store and payed the penalty for not checking the date. Now, I double check the dates on everything.

    No such thing as an “expiration date” on food.On the other hand, I just finished a bottle of buttermilk labeled “Use By Aug 19, 2022”. You just shake it to break up the curd.

    Well, Garfield, if the milk is past its expiration date, it’ll serve you right if you get sick from it.

    If milk tastes a little off while drinking it, mix half and half with the chocolate.

    Expiration dates are a bit arbitrary. If it smells OK and tastes OK, it more than likely OK to drink. I believe the UK has decided to take the expiration dates off milk and go back to the smell method, as so much milk was being wasted.

    You will notice some things have Best By dates, as they don’t really go bad, but may not taste as good after those dates.
