Ok so it’s just now barely 12 and I still have another 7 hours of work to go! I’m STARVING!!! I’m waiting to go to lunch til Fiance gets home about 2.5 hours, but my boss has some HealthyChoice dinners in our freezer at work, said I could have one if I want, As long as I work while I eat wont count it as a lunch… well they all expired aug 31 so about a month ago…. They’ve been in the freezer the whole time. Should it be ok to eat? I’m not worried about it tasting great, I just don’t want it to kill me! Lol
ETA: What are you having for lunch?

@-MONSTER-: NO! Dont do it! Not that it is only expired but those are actually really gross!! We secretly make fun of our boss that he eats those gross microwave meals all the time! Plus dont take the chance..you don want to get sick right before the weekend!!
I’m having a salad and veggie sandwich for lunch 🙂 I eat the same thing every day lol

I think it’s fine if it has been frozen the whole time! But I’m not usually worried about stuff like that.

@-MONSTER-: I didn’t even know those things expired. They are frozen and full of preservatives. If you don’t care how it tastes, you’ll be fine.

If something has been frozen the entire time I would probably eat it. I didn’t know those things even expired!

Those things are so loaded with salt and preservatives that I doubt they can actually go bad or taste any worse. If you would eat it not expired I really don’t think you have anything to worry about given the date.

@MrsPanda99: Me neither, but I thought I would check just in case. I’m definitely not worried about taste, they don’t taste great even when they aren’t expired Lol. My stomach is just like eating itself right now!!!

@-MONSTER-: Frozen meals do not have expiry dates. They have “Best Before” dates, the date by which they should be consumed to still be at their best quality. Amongst the very few products that have expiry dates are infant formula and baby food.
If the meal has been frozen at the correct temperature, it will still be safe to eat, although not optimum quality.

@-MONSTER-: I’m pretty lax on expired foods so as long as they were frozen the whole time I’d totally munch on it, although it probably won’t taste great (but did it ever lol). Darling Husband would toss it without a thought… I figure most processed foods are loaded up with preservatives & salts so unless it looks/smells/tastes bad I figure it’s good! I believe the gov. just released similar guidelines for food expirations?

@MrsPanda99: +1 I don’t see how they can go bad with all those preservatives, plus being stored in the freezer! haha, and August 31 wasn’t THAT long ago. I would eat one.

@-MONSTER-: I would eat it, but honestly, I doubt it will keep you full. When I used to eat those during college to save money, I would actually end up more hungry afterwards than before. I really don’t know what the secret is of those who eat those for lunch and still stay full.

It’s safe to eat.
Food for thought (article similar to @BeckyS0’s post).
