Have you ever been faced with a situation where you weren’t entirely sure if you were able to eat a certain food because of the expiration date? Like, it totally looks fine… But how do I really know?

Generally speaking, expiration dates are usually suggestions. At least once in our lives, we’ve had to make the big decision whether we should eat the food in question even if the expiration says otherwise.

While you should always eat with precaution, there is definitely room to be lenient. We’ve rounded up a short list of foods that are safe to eat even after the expiration date:

  1. Cake mix
  2. Apple sauce
  3. Butter
  4. Hard cheese
  5. Dry pasta
  6. Frozen food
  7. Crackers
  8. Chocolate
  9. Peanut butter
  10. Cereal
