I figure as long as the tube didn't explode, they're fair game.

Yes, that's a good point. I don't exclusively use the sniff test. But, anything that doesn't pass the sniff test gets chucked in the garbage.

Well if the date is 2/2015, that could mean 2/28/2015. So that is only 20 days. I doubt very much if 20 days past due is going to put you in the hospital. Make them and enjoy!

Sure, I also would use them. Something like that has more to do with them not rising properly, than food safety.

With only that small of a 'use by' margin, I'd go ahead and bake them, too. I also use milk, eggs, and yogurt if they're only within a month or so past the "best used by" date. I haven't died from it yet.

A lot of times it just depends on the item. Something like those Poppin' Fresh refrigerator rolls should be fine to use as long as they've been properly refrigerated.

Meats I'm more cautious with. Some veggies are often okay for well past what I'd think would be recommended, as long as the texture is still fairly normal, and they aren't discolored or furry.

Like you Cheryl, I pay little attention to the dates on yogurt or eggs. Milk, on the other hand, gets dumped down the drain the day it expires unless
Steve swears it's still good so I let him have my share.

What's REALLY annoying is when milk goes bad before the exp date. grrr...

Roll_Bones, are you there? How were the rolls? Did they rise OK? Taste OK?
