    I'd eat it without hesitation, though I never would have bought it in the first place. :wink:

    JustJoan is right: it's cheap, why risk it?

    OTOH, it contains both oil and citric acid, each of which contributes to stability. I suspect it would be just fine––but why risk it?

    Sooo, you like wine and are looking for something good to read? Maybe *this* will do the trick! :)

    Well after further debate, we're still even, 2:2.

    I tried it over an hour ago and I'm still alive. No problems. If that changes and I take a turn for the worse, I'll write back before I meet the grillmaster in the sky.

    Darest I ...

    (1) Drink plain kefir with an exp date of 5/22/18? It looks and smells fine. Smells like buttermilk.

    (2) (This one's a bit more embarassing) Eat some unopened Yoplait custard-style yogurts with a Nov 2017 exp date? Last time I opened one, a few weeks ago (I said it was embarassing), it was fine. I used it in a smoothie.

    The general question is what to think of best-by or expiration dates for cultured dairy products? Do the live cultures extend the product life or make them more dangerous over time? In the past I've had buttermilk and sour cream last much longer than I expected.

    Most "use by" dates note when the product is no longer at its best: texture changes, loss of flavor, etc. It doesn't mean spoiled. Unopened yogurt appears to be pretty safe stuff, but it might be more watery or curdled. The one product which I've had go moldy a couple times now without being opened (and long before the expiration date) is sliced muenster.
    Once opened, it's another thing entirely. If I open a large tub of yogurt and don't use it all, though, it's almost certain to grow green stuff. Not good eats.

    Kefir, in particular, can remain unspoiled for a very long time. Unlike other cultured dairy products, kefir is fermented not only with beneficial bacteria, but also with yeasts. So much going on in there, spoilage bacteria almost don't have a chance.

    I'd definitely give the thumbs up to #1.
    #2...if you ate the other one only a couple weeks ago, I'd try that one. If the smell and appearance is fine I bet you will be too.
