Purchased from: Whole Foods, Los Altos, CA

Eating Chocolate past the expiration date:
This chocolate covered candy was quite good even tho 1 yr old/past suggested "sell by" date. This leads me to an uncivilized topic - how far past the expiration or sell by date are you willing to chance something? I'm all for chucking older items in the fridge or the cupboard that could make you very sick: such as meat, eggs, milk, suspicious-looking cans, and other products. But, I admit it, I've probably pushed it a few times with chocolate or candy items. My feeling is that provided their stored properly, it's probably not going to kill you.

I suppose I will continue to hope that on the rare occasion when I decide to live on the edge like this that all that sugar acts as an effective preservative. What would Miss Manners say about this tacky and unhealthful practice?
