    Yeah. All the time. It might be a bit more stale or something, but I'm not too important for food.

    Well, I don't know if it was expired, but I ate a whole bunch of nachos with nacho cheese, looked at it's top, and it was covered with mold. I didn't stop eating it, though.

    All the time...most recent example was a tub of coronation chicken that was a month out of date. Just fished it out from the back of the fridge, make sure it's not bubbling and..............CHOW DOWN!

    I think I have. I found some potato chips and started eating, but then it tasted weird... Reeeeaaally weird, I don't think it was supposed to taste that way.

    There's lots of things I've eaten that have been up to a few days past the use by date. I try to avoid it with fresh meats like fish and chicken though.

    We get a lot of groceries from Kroger's, and for things that don't really pose a problem if they're a few days past the date, they have "Manager's Special" deals that are incredibly cheap because the food expired 1-3 days ago. It's usually still perfectly fine. If I eat dairy, meat, etc. past expiration it's an accident, because that's disgusting.

    Before or after you hit the lumps? I was kind of ok with the taste but the agglutinated lumps really killed the experience for me.

    I was making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich once and I had already made it when I saw that the peanut butter was 1 year past expiration.
    I said "fuck it" and ate the sandwich anyway.
    Was delicious.

    If it's something fucking nice like chocolate or something I am not gonna waste that.
    If it's got mold on though it's a nono.
    And if it's mainly dairy and not wrapped in foil (not chocolate) then don't risk it. [​IMG]

    I've seen jam with mold on. Not nice.

    A bunch of things. Fruits with a bit of rot can easily be fixed by slicing the rot away.
    But I do seriously advice avoiding any foods with visible molds. It usually means that the bacteria from the mold has already compromised many, if not all parts of the food.
    Dry stuff like crackers or chips just either get more crumbles, or get softer. Depends on if it's fatty or not, mostly. Carb'd stuff like pastas can be stored.
    Expired sauces WILL get you sick about 90% of the time. It doesn't taste great, and you have the top layer of liquid residue; unappealing to eat.
    Something I'd want to try is container raiding. Swede's are particularly wasteful, so I'm certain a lot of edible food can be found.

    ACEDIT: A lot of bacteria and molds can be churned down by your stomach acids, but a few can still pass to your blood and give undesirable effects...

    You better tried expired Yoghurt... No probs

    Most food is still edible after the sell expiration date but may not be very tasty. (Of course, lots of packaged food isn't much good before the expiration date, but that's another question).

    Last summer, I eat some gummi worms that expired in April of 2003. They tasted like gummi nothingness.
