We’ve all seen ‘em. Expiration dates on our food. Here’s one I bought a couple of weeks ago:
Oddly specific, don’t you think? So at 1:09 AM it’s safe and at the stroke of 1:10 it’s poisonous?
And “sell by” isn’t even a message for us! It has nothing to do with food safety, it’s just note to the retailers to help them stock shelves.
“Best by” is just a suggestion, it turns out. Yeah, it might be absolutely freshest by that date, but still perfectly edible after.
All this confusion just leaves me with one thought: As long as nobody stamps an expiration date on me, I’m okay.
Great news: None of the life hacks on my Youtube channel will expire!
