what to do with out-dated Dr. Pepper
I have out-dated cans of Dr. Pepper. Anyone know how I can use them?
Hate to waste them. Thanks for any suggestions.

I know that some people use cola to tenderize steaks for the BBQ, would it work for that? Dr. Pepper is basically sugar/water so any recipe that calls for water could have Dr. Pepper instead? How about freezing it in another container to make smoothies or sherbets? How about into a Dr. Pepper ice ring for the punch bowl?

How long have they been out of date? Most dates state "Best by mm/dd/yy". If it is less than 6 months, I would drink it. Other uses would be to use this as the can for BBQ on a can. As Tartan stated, it would be a way to tenderize steak.

My out-dated Dr. Pepper date is March 24, 2013.
How do you use it for tenderizing steak? That sounds like a great idea.

I would only use it for ice as it has lost most of its flavor

I would drink it. That is just a guessed date for keeping. It would be fine to drink.

I would drink it, its not that far off, thats just usually the sell by for the stores date, not an expiration

I want someone to prove to me that on 3/24 it is good, and on 3/25 it is not!! LOL! I agree, they are an estimate. "Best by".

And while we are at it, why does your prescription medicine expire exactly one year after it is filled? Is there a little self-destruct device in the pill bottle?

I use Dr. Pepper to make pulled pork. Just put it in the crock pot or oven pour Dr. Pepper over and cook. It tastes great and the expiration date won't matter.

I follow the rule "best by does not mean not bad after"....go ahead and use it.....use the Dr Pepper and mix it with chocolate cake mix and bake (add nothing else)....makes an excellent moisr cake with no fuss
