    That is as ridiculous a concept as leftover pizza.

    Expiration dates are a waste of food, charities even reject past expiration dates. But I’m going over to @Wilde Bill because he has left over pizza

    My wife works in a grocery store and she always checks the dates on things we buy. She even pulls from the back of the shelves to get a longer expiration date. We get to the cookie aisle and she starts looking at dates on chocolate chip cookies. I tell her not to worry about month and year just make sure they poor little guys can make it until Thursday. We laughed, realizing that some of them weren’t going to survive the car ride home.

    If it looks OK, smells OK, and doesn’t need a shave, go ahead and taste it.

    Detective: “Who’s the victim.”

    Officer Wakefield: “An expired chocolate chip cookie eater, sir.”

    Detective: “So, a case of death by chocolate?”

    Officer Wakefield: “I don’t think so, sir. But Officer Tollhouse might have a morsel of an idea.”

    Those are sell dates, best to be sold by this date, its not the to be eaten date. Best dang thing on the planet are Twinkies, you find a box after the Russians attack… They are still edible!!

    Cookies, chocolate chip or not, rarely get near a “best by” or expiration date here.

    I should sue Art and Chip for using my life story and not sending any gratuity.

    It’s not the expiration date I worry about on CC cookies. It’s the expiration date on the mandatory glass of cold milk worries me!

    What about the food we bought years ago? None of it had expiration dates on it. I’m still living and I ate a lot of canned tuna etc. Fresh meat had dates but no expiration.

    Poor ole Brutus Thornapple. People make fun of him for eating things like a whole package of cookies instead of forgoing the cookies and getting into shape. Brutus is always quick to remind them that ROUND is a shape.

    Brutus is right. Expiration dates on chocolate products are an oxymoron. On the other hand I found a half used roll of fresh mozzarella in the back of our refrigerator the other day. It was well past the expiration date and certainly smelled like it!

    Gladys‘s expressions make me think that that was her secret stash and she’s a little disturbed that Brutus was able to find it

    The only time I pay attention to those “sell by” or “best by” dates is when I unearth something that was pushed to the back of the cabinet or the fridge. If the date on it is now in the distant past (that ’s anywhere from several months ago to a year or more), it requires closer scrutiny.

    I don’t find store bought cookies that tempting. Homemade CCCs however destroy my willpower completely.

    The cabinet door never closes until the cookies are gone…

    This went in a different direction than I thought, I figured she’d say “you don’t want to spoil your appetite for dinner”. Then he’d say “yes I would”.

    Good comeback, Brutus. Every once in awhile, you do get the last word.

    Chocolate chip cookies never expire with time they just get a little harder.

    I am amazed! In my experience, if a man has a woman nearby, he can’t find anything in a fridge or cupboard. I don’t mean this to sound sexist, it just seems to always go that way. Maybe it’s because when they ask us where their [whatever] is, we answer them instead of saying, “Why are you asking me where your stuff is?”

    Time for a nap. This can be surreal. Raisins are leftover grapes. Prunes are leftover plums. Bran and flour are leftover wheat. Cheese, butter, ice cream are leftover milk. Leftover = expired. Expired, but yummy. Brutus obviously feels the same about Gladys. He keeps her no matter what.

    it’s important not to let chocolate chip cookies expire slowly – a quick death is more merciful…
