Threw some pork pies away earlier, 4 days out they were. You fuckers fussy over food that's a few days out?
think i might have eaten them
Only with things that contain dairy or meat.
People who moan about out of date vegetables or fruit are INSANE.
It's absolute MADNESS that they put sell by dates on plants too. My girlfriend came home from work in September with a couple of house plants that were supposedly out of date - still going fine now.
as opposed to use by. anyway
While the loose stuff would stay there for as long as it looks fit.
I told your loose mum that she can stay as long as she looks fit.
generally the smell test is sufficient.
Smelt a bit off and there were a few bits in my tea.
otherwise i'm easy going
winner winner chicken dinner indeed.
they'd still be good after a couple of months
As long as there's no visual signs or owt, I reckon it's good.
people might argue there are starving people in the world, which is true, but if they worked 45 hours a week like i do they probably wouldn't bother with slightly stale bread either.
Tastes alright though. Lost the bit of plastic on the front of the packet that says the use by date. Think it's probably a week or so ago. It's all good though, haven't got ill.
I pay no attention, you can almost always tell when things are bad.
I'm probably not the person to ask though given all my food comes from the bins :/
1. Is it out of date? It is? Right...
2. Does it look ok? Looks a little bit ropey like, but then again, I'm not sure what stuff is supposed to look like...
3. Does it smell off? If no - it's fine. If yes - it's in the bin.
This multi-layered approach means I haven't been fucked up by ropey food in about 15 years. If it smells fine - IT IS FINE.
that isn't even ripe by the time it supposedly expires. Bread is usually fine for a good few days, I just look out for mould. Meat and fish needs to be used up pretty quick, but even then you can probably trust your nose.
Pork pies will be fine 4 days after expiry as long as they have been in the fridge etc. After all, them keeping for some time is half the point of them.
Is the pastry going all stale and cardboardy.
And even if I /can/ see mould, i'm probably just gonna cut the mouldy bit off and stick the rest of it in my cakehole.
That's with everything except bread. As soon as bread has started to go mouldy it tastes a bit like eating dust.
i've got a cold
I guess I'll just eat biscuits or something....
i don't know what impact it had on my cold
am i going to die?
Did it not taste rank? I had some toast with mould on it once, but I didn't realise until my tongue hit the mould. I instantly felt sick.
Completely ruins the enjoyment of the sandwich though when you spy a speck of mould.
salmonella? you got to be kidding me
if chicken is a day or so out of date but it doesn't smell then it's fine. I just ate an egg that was a month out of date - eggs last for ages.
Fruit and veg is an obvious one - they always last longer than expected.
Best Before Date: Oct 2011
As far as I'm concerned, these dates do not apply to frozen goods... Even if it is 9 months out.
