Best by/use by/expiration dates on foods are really more suggestions than anything firm.
Not paying attention* and tossing a few guacamole 100 calorie packs that were dated June 6 onto my lunch salad was definitely a horrible idea. It’s been a rough 6 hours.
What are your deep thoughts for the day?
Also, what’s the thing with the oldest expiration date that you accidentally ingested?**
*For the record, there was no discoloration or taste differences noted in this guac.
**A few weeks ago I was throwing together a honey mustard marinade and realized a few days later the dijon mustard had an expiration date of December 2019. It was in the fridge, I didn’t get sick at all, but I have since replaced it with new, not expired dijon mustard.
