If it isn't green and growing legs we will use it. We still have and use some spices that were my mothers - and she passed away in 1986. Milk - tested by smell, meat as well along with sliminess. Everything else - gets eaten. Then there are the left overs.......never could figure their "use by" date

So a bottle of hot sauce that aged for a few years in an oak barrel has a use by date and has to be thrown out.So you can buy another bottle that has aged for a few years.

Even bottled water has an expiration date on it!!

I believe the correct term is planned obsellescence (probably misspelled). The idea is it will quickly become obsolete so you have to throw it out and buy more.

I'm with the common sense crowd. If the salad dressing has been in the frig since you bought it, it should still be good long after the date they want you to toss it.

At least I got some (rations) from Korea. Let her go hungry for two days and I bet she will appreciate every bite.

Like throwing out spices after 6 months. [Moderator Edit] just keep adding till the taste is right. If it takes more then use it. But don't throw away perfectly good spices.

I don't worry about expiration dates. I just make sure I don't buy more than what I will use before the expiration date.

WE have all kinds of out of date supplies in our motorhome. If we threw all that stuff out it would cost at least $300 bucks to replace all at once, unless of course if we shop at Walmart. I had the same problem on my sailboat when I sold her, cans and jars of out of date stuff.

Once upon a time in a land of old retiree's; I owned vending machines. The beer companies originated it, then the use by date shifted to soft drinks; which I sold. On more then one occasion I had to return a custiomers .50 'cause a can of Pepsi was over a week old! Ah. . . just remembered another reason why I got out of that business.

Most spices cost anywhere from $20.00 to $85.00 a pound.
I do not eat chicken skin. I skin the chicken before putting on spices and cooking. Cook with the skin on then chuck it out is a waste of great spices.

I use my eyes and nose to tell the time to replace foods and spices and good sense where medicines are concerned.

I am sure the dates are for liability purposes on the part of the companies producing the products.

And a lot of the bottled water is municipal (tap) water that may or may not have been filtered.
One of the best selling jobs of the century was getting people to buy tap water!

One of the most successful businesses in the U.S. is McCormick Spices. Sell 2 cents worth of salt and spices in a 10-cent bottle for $3. Great business plan. And great-smelling warehouses! (Speaking as a truck driver who has carried their products.)

You would not believe the stated value of a truck load of ranch seasoning in 25 lb bags.
