Always Check the Expiry Date.

I was doing last minute grocery shopping last week (when do I not go on emergency grocery trips?!) when I chanced upon boxes of Pour ‘N Whip and Value Pride ready-to-whip pastry topping. I was so excited to grab a few boxes of Value Pride, but when I checked the expiry date, it read… “2/12/12.” I was looking for an attendant, but didn’t see anyone around, so I placed the cartons back in the chiller and made my way to the cashier.

Earlier today, I was on a last minute grocery shopping trip again. I had to get a few tubs of plain yogurt for my homemade yogurt experiment tonight. I once again saw the same cartons of ready-to-whip pastry topping. I checked the expiry date, and it showed the same date - 2/12/12.”

Since the manufacturer didn’t include the format of the date like MM/DD/YY (some do), I am not sure if it should be expired by February 12, 2012 or December 12, 2012.

I don’t know about you, but it has always been my practice to check  the dates.

It’s better to be safe than sorry.
