Default Expired "Fiber One" bars ( Aug 21, 2010) and "Odwalla" original Superprotein bars (Dec 25, 2010)

I have about 20 Expired "Fiber One" oatmeal and strawberry bars
(expired on Aug 21, 2010) and 31"Odwalla" original Super protein bars
(expired on Dec 25, 2010).

Odwalla bars probably are safe for another 3-4 months but how soon
should I finishing consuming the Fiber One bars? Or should I throw
away the Fiber One bars? I know for a fact that if I give away on
Craigslist, no one would tale them.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Throw them away. If you eat them, you are at risk of developing ingrown
toenails.

What makes you think a homeless shelter would want/take expired
food? You think they don't care what kind of food they serve?

Expired food should be tossed.

Homeless don't consider dumpster diving un do able.

Agreed! I had a friend who worked at a soup kitchen in Seattle. This was
in the days when expiration dates were not required. But he said he knew
some of the food was stale because he tasted it. He said bakeries would
often drop off really old seasonal stuff. Like Valentines cookies months
after Valentines day. He said he hated having to serve them the bad tasting
stuff.

Exactly...wrap a dollar bill around one and give one to the homeless
person at the end of the exit ramp tonight. Bet they will take it.
I doubt with all sincerity, they are going to look at the wrapper
date.

I rarely toss expired food unless it has obviously spoiled. Often that
date is a Best By date; even a Use By date I've missed doesn't
automatically get tossed out. Where's common sense?

Sorry, I didn't mean to not use common sense with regard to tossing
expired food. However, I don't think it is appropriate to donate
obviously expired food to homeless shelters. "Hey, here's some expired
food I won't eat, but you can have it".

Dumpster diving is very different from donating obviously expired food
to a shelter.

Obviously not around here, I do the same thing. Being the nit picker I
am I rotate food to the front of the shelf every time I shop. Now, if I
could convince my loverly wife to do the same. Hah!

I just found a jar of something that had sneaked its way to the back
of my highest kitchen shelf and taken up residence. It was shrimp
paste. Had a use by date of early 2006. That is gone now.

Usually, I am lenient with my expired foodstuffs, but something about
this screamed "toss me, please," and I obliged.

I don't mean to not throw away perfectly good food just because of the
sell by date or use by date. What I am trying to say is it is wrong to
try to give away or donate food you _would not eat_ to a homeless
shelter. It's fake altruism. If you want to donate to a shelter, at
least give them something fresh. It's that simple.


But while AmandaF wouldn't eat something that "expired" Dec 2010, I
would eat it. If she doesn't want to eat it, others probably would.

Anything with seafood in it that is that old I would toss too. When an
elderly relative died many years ago I helped my cousin clean out his
Mom's pantry. Had home canned stuff in there that had to be from the
early forties maybe earlier. The lids had rusted off, some jars had
bubbled over. I guess my auld auntie just couldn't see or smell that
well anymore. I did salvage the jars though.
