Many items don’t actually have an ‘expiration date’. And those that do, it’s sometimes actually a ‘best by’ date, not expiration. Some stuff just doesn’t go bad. Really. I used to work in supermarket management, and the reason some stuff even had a date was because it loses appearance. It doesn’t go bad. A big company has to have good appearances. That’s what it’s about.For years, many items never even had a date on them, at all. Many frozen foods still don’t. I can’t actually think of any frozen foods that go ‘bad’. They just get frost burned, which is an appearance issue. Spices never go ‘bad’ either, but now have expiration dates to help people throw them out for no reason and buy more. They DO lose flavor, but never actually go bad.Yet another gimmick to make you waste money.
