  • Sniff it. If there's no musty smell and the mix has been kept dry in a sealed package, it's probably fine.

  • I'm not sure but I'm all about the date, if it's expired it's in the garbage.

  • If it doesn't smell rancid, it's probably fine.

  • is it an "expiration" or "sell by" or "best by" or "use by"?

  • For me it would depend on what else is in the mix.

  • It should be fine, most dry goods have at least 6 months past the date. The only issue would be if the baking powder doesn't let it rise. You'll know if you get flat, hard corn bread instead of normal. There's still nothing unsafe about it, except you might lose a tooth.
