10 Foods That Can Survive Past Their Expiry Date

1. Bread

It's safe to eat stale bread. Keep bread in the fridge or freezer to increase its shelf life. Remove any mold.

2. Canned Goods

Most shelf-stable foods are safe permanently. In good shape, canned products last years. No dents, corrosion, or swelling.

3. Chocolate

Chocolate expert? Unopened chocolate lasts two years. Dark, milk, and white chocolate are safe for one year after opening.

4. Eggs

After being refrigerated, eggs last 3-5 weeks. The sell-by date will normally expire within that period, but the eggs are good to consume and use in recipes.

5. Frozen Foods

Freezing kills food poisoning bacteria, therefore frozen food is safe to eat. However, long-frozen food may become dry and tasteless. 

6. Hard Cheeses and Semi-Soft Cheeses

Hard and semi-soft cheeses like Cheddar, Colby, Parmesan, and Swiss last six months unopened and one month after opening in the fridge.

7. Honey

Do you have a sweet tooth? Although honey never expires, it is advisable to utilize it within two years to ensure the greatest quality.

8. Jams and Jellies

If peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are your thing, jams and jellies can last one year in the cupboard and six months in the fridge.

9. Ketchup

Ketchup is the most popular kitchen condiment, so it may not last a year! Opened ketchup should be refrigerated and consumed within six months.

10. Milk

Most research suggests that properly stored unopened milk lasts 5–7 days past its given date, but opened milk lasts at least 2–3 days.
