    I am completely addicted to the yeo valley lemon curd yogurts. I'd only seen them in little packs of 4 until this afternoon when I found a huge tub in Asda. Just got it out of the fridge and it says use by 22nd Jan!! I hadn't even looked in the shop as I knew it would be gone by tonight and nearly opened it without looking too as it was literally bought 6 hours ago. If I wasn't pregnant i'd be eating it anyway but now I'm just hormonal and grumpy. No point in taking it back as I have to pay to park outside :wall:
    Sorry for the huge rant about nothing important but I feel better now :lol:

    If only.. and I'm not sure it's worth dragging the boys back into town when they'd rather do anything else!
    Wonder if they would if I called first...

    I'd be sending them a sharp email. You have proof that yo bought it today and can even send a pic of date.

    I'd be making them pay for parking too, if I returned it to the store. x

    I get my shopping delivered, I alternate between tesco & asda. This week was asda & I had ordered a few packs of chicken for sandwiches & every pack was out of date 2 days later (4 packs) I managed to use a pack that day & rest had to go in bin. Wasn't best pleased but hate complaining about things & seemed pointless for the sake of a few quid

    :roll:

    I hate complaining too! If I'm doing a big shop I always check dates on everything unless I'm going to eat it straight away but i'd only gone in to go to the post office in there (big food shops are a nightmare with both boys!) so thought I'd just quickly see if they had some :wall:

    There was a piece in the paper awhile ago about how most of the dates on food are rubbish. For one, I eat yogurt 6 weeks "out of date" and it tastes fine.

    I wouldnt eat fish more than 2-3 days out of date, but I always eat stff out of date. I'm
    Never sick!

    I always ignore best before dates and will quite happily use some things months after, but I though use by dates are for things that aren't guaranteed to be safe after that date (like meat etc). Although I must admit it was just too tempting and I did eat it... :blush: It was only a day after all! x

    I get my shopping delivered too, usually by tescos, but gave asda a go one week...

    Half my shopping was missing andmy chicken went out of date that day!

    I phoned them up and they refunded me. I wasn't a happy bunny!
