One or two days does not mean the food/drink is no good. I argued with a sales person in Walgreen's about the goodness of some candy they were pulling from the shelf. He said he could not sell it to me as it was out of date--and it still in the aisle. I told him I was willing to take the risk and bought it anyway but he was really bothered by my attitude.

My mother was a dietician and one of the things I had pounded into my head as a child and I live by is " When in doubt, throw it out!" If you've had that soda so long it's expired, is it really worth ruining a roast with it? What's a new bottle cost? $2? Pitch it.

I do believe the artificial sweetener loses its taste after a few months, or less time if it is in the heat.

Use it as a science project for your children or grandchildren. Put it in a cup with a chicken bone and see how it dissolves. Then have them research the amount of artificial sweetener, coloring, flavoring, etc. Older students could research how its made, consumption in different areas, effects on humans, testing, on and on.

Put a can of it in a pot of pinto beans. It gives the beans a rich flavor. I usually use Coke A Cola for brown beans and 7 Up for white beans. The Use by Date is always set for three months early. It won't hurt you, just may lose some flavor or vitamins. The only dates I go by are on medicine.

Thank you for all the 'use' ideas. I finally called Dr. Pepper Company & they said it won't hurt you-----but
may taste different & be less carbonated.
