    It’s how long the bottle is expected to last.

    It takes a while for the plastic to etch its way into the water.

    After that date, it turns into Oxygen Dihydride…

    Because the FDA says all consumable food and drinks have to have one, needed or not…

    Sometimes, pluggers like to do cheesy humor that hasn’t aged well.

    Probably the plastic residue. At least that’s what I have been told by my folks.

    You are a Plugger when you start to relate to the Pickles cartoon.

    Because everything edible has to have a “Best by date” or a “Sell by”, it’s the Law. Very few have an expiration date.

    Because given time the plastic starts to leach into the water.

    What I also can’t understand is an expiration date on 100,000 year old Pink Himalayan Salt……

    Chemicals in the plastic leach into the water. The longer it is stored or the hotter, the more chemicals you get in your drink.

    Almost as puzzling as the exclamations on the box my new oximeter came in:

    “Algorithm inside!

    Anti-shaking indeed!

    Low perfusion indeed!"

    The reason is that several states mandate expiration dates for all consumables, bread, cheese, meat & water

    It may have to do with the life cycle of the cryptosporidium you HOPE you’re being protected from by buying bottled water!

    EXTREMELY rare for us to buy bottles of water.

    Right now I have 2 quart bottles of water in the refrigerator – when we use up (or mostly do so) we refill it and switch to the other one so we have cold water to drink.

    When we will be traveling I fill a few old 12 oz soda bottles (washed of course) and put them in the freezer the day before. We then have cold water with us while traveling. Add to that the fact we travel (even generally for day trips) in a class B RV (converted van) I keep the filled water bottles in our RV fridge when traveling and refill when needed – though cannot freeze the refills.

    If we are gong to a local outdoor event in summer – we are 18th century reenactors – I fill and freeze a couple of bottles if water the night before and we keep the bottles wrapped in fabric in sealed plastic bags and cover the bottles or go away from the public when we pour water in our reproduction cups to have same to have a drink of water.
