Cereal

The staleness is really the biggest factor as the oxidation of unsaturated fats, like oils, can negatively impact odor and taste.

 

Eggs

Refrigerated eggs are safe to eat after the expiration date as long as they aren’t giving off the classic rotten egg odor. At that point, throw them out.

 

Milk

Again, go with the smell test. Look for lumps. Godspeed.

 

Hard Cheese

The texture will change but the ripening process can keep going for years without harm.

 

Yogurt

If it’s not moldy or usually sour, you’re in the clear.

Dried Pasta

As long as the moisture exposure is kept down, mold-free pasta can be eaten after years on the shelf, though it might not taste so good.

 

Canned Goods

The expiration date on these usually marks when the taste and nutritional value being to decline. If the can is swollen that’s a sure sign to throw it out.

 

Frozen Food

Watch out for freezer burn, which is basically dehydration, but otherwise frozen foods are find as long as they haven’t been thawed at some point.

 

Chocolate

It won’t taste as good but don’t worry about the powdery white film you see on old chocolate. This “bloom” happens when sugar absorbs excess moisture, causing fat to collect on the surface.

 

Dried Herbs and Spices

Again, safe to eat, but it won’t taste as good the longer it sits.

Almost nothing goes bad on the expiration date, that's a minimum possible date set on the safe side to make sure the company doesn't get sued.

#4 Eggs do last past the expiration date but I still do the water test. If they stay at the bottom of the glass they are still good. If they float, throw them out.

as a store owner i often take expired things home and some of it lasts for years over the date. on some items dates are entirely nonsensical like rock salt. powdered things also often last for ages.
