I need some expert advice!
I have 3 Yoplait yogurts in my fridge that I want to eat this week **but* the "Use By" dates are in February 2019.
My instinct says they are fine to use this week. They may have lost a bit of nutritional value but as long as they aren't spoiled I would like to finish them.
I want to stock up this w/end but not until I use these up.
Any thoughts? Thanks.

@lovemygrands. They'll be fine. As long as they're sealed they'll last a very long time. I've eaten them as long as a year after the expiration date with no ill effects.

Interesting - I've just finished a half dozen Activia yogurts that were "best by February 21". I'm still here!
I go by the smell and taste test. If it smells fine and tastes fine, I eat it. Otherwise, I'd dump it. Expiration dates always err on the side of caution. I remember the days when there weren't any! You used your own common sense.

I call it...”Cost-to-Bathroom Ratio”. 📊
Those containers cost probably cost $3-5, at most...compared to the
OMG Where’s the Bathroom! uncomfortable for days. ⚖️
To me, toss.

Thanks to all. After due thought, and with my history of colo-rectal cancer and a subsequent "situation" (now fixed), I've decided to dump them.
I think I'll err on the side of caution.

I saw a report on the news about expiration dates a couple of years ago.These dates are arbitrary.The manufacturer wants the consumer to recycle the food quicker so that they can sell you more of it.
According to the report the consumer should use their common sense. If the item looks normal & doesn’t smell bad you should taste it. If it tastes good then there is no reason not to eat it.
I’m sure your yogurt is fine.Enjoy!!
