I bought a 1/2 baggie of "yogurt" covered raisins from a local health food store on super duper discount because they were expired. The sell by date sticker says October 2015, but they were purchased as a bulk item in a baggie so I don't know when the actual expiration date of the batch was.

Now that I brought them home I'm feeling more timid. Are these safe to eat? How would I know if they've gone bad (hopefully a noticeable smell)?

You eat it and wait to see if you'll have the shits

There's enough wax on them. Should be safe baby doll.
>>
Smell them. When in doubt, throw it out. I would eat them, myself

Shit like that isn't going to make you sick. They'll just taste bad. I mean unless you have stomach problems.

From what I understand expiration dates are set well below when the food goes COMPLETELY sour as a precaution. I read somewhere that with milk you can usually drink it like a week after the expiration. But like I said, it probably depends on the person and how healthy you are. For example I wouldn't feed expired shit to my dad as his immune system is shit after several major surgeries and if he does get sick, it could be really bad.

I want to avoid exactly that, but also want to not waste food.

That was my thinking too - the "yogurt" coating is basically sugar, vegetable fat, and some kind of waxy emulsifier and that's why I reasoned with buying the expired cheap ass raisins in the first place.

I haven't even smelled them yet and I am doubting, that's why I made the thread.

For your troubles, I offer you some high res yogurt raisins.
>>
>>7561977
yeah it's practically all fat & sugar

i guess they could be rancid
>>
>>7561962
They can and will go bad anon, if they have they'll usually have mold growing on them. I can't guarantee that they will taste good (the ones that you bought) but as long as they are not getting fuzzy you should be fine

They look perfect and I can smell the sweetness from the bag when I put my nose right near it.

Alright guys this was looking like a good decision after all.

>>7561962
Sell by date and expiration date are not the same, op. Sell by is guidance for the seller, try em out.

>>7562020
The nose knows.
