  • NO! It's a whole year past the date- time to go to the store to get something that won't make your family ill. Yes it will be crowded- but better than your bathroom being crowded w/ sick people.

  • I assume you mean a corn bread mix? Like a Jiffy Mix?

    Yes, it's fine if it's still all sealed up. I wouldn't think twice about using it.

  • mrsmom110, it's only a month past the date. If it were a year past, I'd toss it, too.

  • I say yes.
    Those dates are usually "best by" dates.

  • I wouldn't. Those mixes are like a $1. Just go get some more. i'd be afraid of it turning out like a big yellow brick

  • It is November 2013 now!!!! I would say it is ok. My DH is a stickler for those dates on food. He would toss it.
