  • I can't imagine that you'll be able to "drink" it. By then it should have curdled! I suppose if you can get over the smell, the taste, and the texture, you could eat it. I can't guarantee that it'll be good for you :)

  • of course, go ahead it shouldn't be a problem....while you are at it, give eating meat that is a few months expired a try too, and raw hamburger meat

  • No! Unless it's been frozen...then maybe. I think you would be very sorry if you drink that...

  • Are you the same person that is posting all kinds of dumb questions? If so, you either need cooking classes, common sense or a slap upside the head.

    NO, you cannot drink milk months after the expiration date. A 5 year old knows that.

  • Uh no! I don't even drink it if it's one day past expiration.

  • What? only if it has been frozen.. Your nose and eyes should be the test of this one anyway.. it should be chunky, off-colored and have a distinct smell... and I agree w/ above poster that has said "no, you cannot drink milk months after expiration date. A 5 year old knows that."

  • No, proper etiquette is to use a spoon

  • Are you talking about liquid milk? A few months would be way too long. A couple days past the sell by date maybe, but not weeks and definitely not months.
    If it's powdered milk you 'might' get away with it, but I still wouldn't.
