This was a discussion among friends recently. Is the “Use By Date” a suggestion or a deadline? There are many opinions on this and some people say no – don’t do it. Then there are those that think there are foods that are fine well past that date stamp. Bustle made a list of 10 foods that you don’t have to toss just because the date has passed. Some are common sense and then there are a few surprises. How daring would you be?
- Cheese. Harder cheeses last up to a month after the expiration.
- Cereal. It lasts for months after the date.
- Pasta. Dry pasta lasts up to three years.
- Yogurt. It’s okay one to two weeks past the date
