Full Answer

The drink-by date on bottles of Gatorade are not necessarily expiration dates. Instead, they are the last date the manufacturer guarantees freshness and flavor. To ensure that Gatorade is good to drink past the date on the bottle, store it in a cool, dark place, and ensure that the integrity of the seal is not compromised.

    How long is milk safe to drink after the expiration date?

    A:

    Depending on the source, milk should be fine to drink up to a week after the expiration date, according to WebMD. However, there are factors that can determine whether or not milk will spoil before this time. A milk carton that is left out at room temperature will spoil faster, and even a refrigerator that is not cool enough can allow the bacteria that causes milk to spoil to do its work faster.
