It is understandable why you would not want to check the expiration date on all of the products that you purchase. People who tell you to do this are irrational. However, the complaint should be made toward the grocery store that you purchased the item from, they are the ones in charge of taking items off the shelf that are beyond expiration date. They are the ones who put out an expired item in the first place.

    There is this awesome thing they do now where they print the expiration dates on products. All you have to do is read it.

    I check all of the dates on the products I buy. It takes a split second to glance at it. Why is it irrational to expect people to do this??? It may not be fun, but it's smart.

    But the complaint, as mbcamp said, really should be towards the place of purchase.

    Hate hearing the word "EXPIRED". This is why us Americans waste over a billion dollars in food every year. pre-packaged snacks do NOT "expire" Those are Best By dates which simply mean the product may not taste as good as it did before the posted date. 99% of the time these best by dates are very Misleading as most products last well beyond there best by dates. Products like Hostess and Drakes and even Entermanns can and do last up to 14 days beyond best by dating without suffering any taste loss. Another example are snacks like Bugles and Chex Mix. These products last 2-3 months past there posted best by dates without suffering any noticeable taste loss.
    Some folks in the industry admit many Manufacturers use these dates as a means of fooling the customer into thinking the product is no longer editable so they will throw it away and purchase more.

    I bought a Twinkie bar, yesterday, I just ate one and opened a next to find green slime all over the bar and inside the packaging. Whether this individual bar was put in a batch out of date or something, I don't know. At the moment I'm trying to convince myself the rest of the box weren't the same and that one of their employees didn't have a cold at the time of baking/packaging... Really ruined twinkies for me.

    False, a lot of companies frito, hostess and coke to name a few stock the shelves at grocery stores they should not leave expired products or push items to the back for a quick stock. They are not off the hook...
