    Lots of things are perfectly fine after expiration date for me, like chips. Milk usually varies.

    If the food is still edible, then yeah, I'd eat it. Like chips that weren't opened until the day before their expiration date or anything else. Why shouldn't I eat the food?

    If something goes bad before its expiration date we dont wait for the Exp. date to throw it away, so why not eat something thats still good even if that package says its not.

    Some of you guys are really picky, you really won't get stomach problems from something that has gone a week after its expiration date.

    50 year old chicken huh. Maybe I'll save a fifty year old bag of chips and see what it looks like.

    So you buy milk every day, I guess... [​IMG]
    In my country milk lasts 4 days. So if you substract 1 day of its transportation from the milk factory to the shops and 1 day if you drink it early in the morning -it will be at the shops this day but some time later-, you have 2 days left. You substract 1 more because you don't want see the day after tomorrow as an expiration date and you are left with 1 only day...

    Old medicine. Aside from antibiotics (of which my supply is not non existent) them bring it on.

    Milk/dairy. If it smells/tastes funny then no unless I am really lazy and boil it first. Otherwise game on. Re cheese I will tend to cut the furry sections off or be gross and eat them if they look tasty.
    Eggs fry the best for me if they are about a day out.

    "Bakery" goods. Is it growing something? can I excise it if so?

    Pasta: I will select the good stuff and be rather generous with what I throw away. proto-acid trips are not for me (see ergot for those not aware).

    Meat. I usually like things to still have pulse but I am not adverse to searing something if needs be.

    Fruit. I tend not to let it get that far (smoothie maker), "my can I excise the bad section?" rule returns.

    Canned food. I have yet to find something like the 50 year old chicken in my cupboard but you can be sure I would indulge if so.

    Why, because I am too lazy to go shopping sometimes and there seems to be about as much science behind such dates as some of the more fun aspects of religion.
    The only times I suffer is when I eat something I should not (tomatoes being the killer for me shortly followed by the likes of burger king, subway and the like) or a dodgy restaurant.

    Of course I eat expired food. The date on the package is just a suggestion. The food doesn't actually go bad on that date. I've eaten chips and cookies that were like a month past the expiration date. I've even drank a can of soda that was still as carbonated as the day it was canned, a few years after it was purchased.

    There's nothing wrong with eating expired food.

    Here milk lasts at least about 2 weeks I think. I could check but I do not wish to. But in my house hold a gallon of milk lasts 2-3 days so yea...
