Q:

Can you eat yogurt past the expiration date?

A:

Yogurt can be eaten past the expiration date. An unopened container of regular plain yogurt can last two to three weeks past the expiration date. But once opened, the yogurt is only good for one week past the expiration date.

Different varieties of yogurts stay fresh for varying amounts of time. For example, an unopened drinkable yogurt or yogurt with fruit has a shorter lifespan of seven to ten days. Greek yogurt and reduced fat yogurt are good for one to two weeks past the expiration date. If there is an excessive amount of liquid at the top of the yogurt or a curdling texture near the bottom of the yogurt, the yogurt is spoiling and should be thrown away.

    Is it safe to eat sour cream after the expiration date?

    A:

    Sour cream may be safe to eat after the expiration date passes, but is ideally discarded after the expiration date since that date indicates the last date food or beverages are safe to consume. The expiration date on foods falls into the broader category of food labeling. The expiration date indicates the maximum date foods stay fresh; eating foods past expiration dates may pose health and safety risks, including dairy products like sour cream and milk.

    Where is the expiration date on Smirnoff?

    A:

    Smirnoff bottles do not have an expiration date; vodka can last indefinitely if the bottle is unopened. It would take decades to affect the flavor of the drink. If the bottle is open, the vodka evaporates faster, but it does not go bad.
