I was pretty 'stupid' that day, I guess, and it was October so i thought, "Okay, it's only four months overdue." I took it to work and ate the soup. Then I got to thinking, "Waaaiiit a minute. That's June 2006, not June 6th.!!!! It was October 2010. The soup was 4 years overdue and though it didn't taste as good as a fresh can of soup (it was tomato soup) it really wasn't bad and I didn't get sick. I mostly ignore the expiration dates except for the canned milk, which turns yellow and chunky.

Also, expired boxed baking items, like corn muffin mix or cake mixes, won't rise if they are much beyond expiration date. The baking powder or baking soda or whatever in them gets too old to do it's job.
