How Strict Are You with Food Expiration and Best By Dates?

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: Ugh. The very idea of eating expired yogurt makes me queasy. I'm really picky about expiration dates on dairy goods -- on other foods, not so much. How about you? Would you eat yogurt that expired yesterday? - Denise]

Part of a text conversation between me and Craig on Friday: 

Me:  I made a big mistake.

Craig: What happened?

Me:  I ate the expired yogurt.  Think I’m going to vomit.

Craig:  Oh, no.  How long ago did you eat it?

Me:  3 hrs

Craig:  Right on schedule.  Better to vomit.

Me:  No!
