I had to go look at mine!
I must use more cocoa than you guys. My old, almost empty container of it is August 2010 and the new unopened one is Jan 2011.
I use a large pantry, so once in awhile I find antique foods in there that have been behind something. Found some boxed Scalloped Potatoes in there that were 11 years old once. Tossed em. They were dehydrated, but I still didn't trust em at that age.
