Ten Foods You Can Eat After the Expiration Date
I admit that I am a pretty picky eater, but when I find something that I like, it is usually not a good thing, sometimes I go a little overboard. I am also a little crazy when it comes to expiration dates.
So If you are trying to save some money on your grocery bill keep in mind that you may be throwing away some food that is actually still safe to eat. My co-host Cooper brought up a good point too that sometimes the dates are sell by dates not expiration dates so keep that in mind too. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Cheese- This is a touchy subject for me because as a kid growing up in Americas Dairyland I became a big fan early on but, what used to gross me out to no end was when she would cut off some mold that may occasionally pop up on that big chunk of cheddar. But, what is cheese made of? I just can't think about it.
- Cereal- If stored properly cereal can last way beyond it's shelf life, so next time your favorite is on sale stock up!
- Yogurt: This one kind of scares me because the only dairy I am a big fan of is cheese and ice cream, but If it is sealed it actually can last up to 2 weeks past the date.
- Chips: Like bread they make get stale but are still safe to eat. A sealed bag can last weeks if unopened. This is never a problem in our house chips go pretty fast.
