I had several Fage yogurts in the fridge at work. I don’t eat yogurt too often, but am generally good about practicing First In, First Out. I guess one must have slipped past me, because after I ate it, I noticed the expiration date was Sept. 24!
I always smell dairy products before I eat them–I once had a bad experience with some still-in-date milk having the most horrible rotten taste imaginable–and this smelled and tasted fine. But now I am a little worried.

If it didn’t taste bad, I’m sure it’s fine. Even though it’s dairy, yogurt is one of those things that lasts past the expiration date.

It’s important to eat expired foods from time to time, to toughen up your stomach for the apocalypse. At least that’s what I always tell DH!

If it tasted fine, chances are you’ll be fine.
I’m really bad for throwing stuff out as soon as it expires. My mom and husband think I’m nuts, but I have a bad stomach to begin with…. soo yeah. I have definitely eaten yogurt after expiry and been fine, though.

HAHAHA take it from the master of expiration. … you will be fine. the other day i ate one that expired in feb…. it was fine. it was a plain yogurt and all natural. was given to me so maybe they froze it. idk. but yogurt is already old . the date is what i like to call the rule of thumb. its all about smell and texture with yogurt… and milk. if anything you will get the farts. 😉

I was super worried clicking on this post that it might be a very gross thread, but it seems like all is okay! I wouldn’t worry if it didn’t smell/taste sour!

@iarebridezilla: Are you an Apocalypse junkie too? I think DH is currently working on making sure we have a hot water system in the back of our truck for showers in case it happens….like I’m gonna shower if that happens?
@EffieTrinket: I have a super sensitive tummy so it would probably be out of my system in no time. But if it didn’t smell/taste funny, it might be ok.

@EffieTrinket: You’re fine. FH used to work for a dairy. the expiry dates mean that the product no longer meets the nutritional information on the package, something changes within the product after a certain date. If a cultured product (yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese) hasn’t been opened it will last well beyond its expiry date. As long as it smelled fine you’re good 🙂

@EffieTrinket: yogurt is one of those things that can totally last longer than the expiration date. I’m sure you’ll be fine! If it were bad (and I’ve seen bad) the yogurt was smell weird and look yellowish. You’d know if it was bad! I totally get your nervousness though…I hate eating things past the expiration dates!
