How long are tastefully simple products good for?

I found some Tastefully Simple products in my pantary but there are no expiration dates. I know about when they were purchased. How long are their products normally good for? I have the drink buckets, boxes of pasta/desserts and some spices. All are unopened. Are their expiration dates that I am missing?

How long are the spices good for usually after opening? They look the same as when they were bought.

  • I was told about 1 year from when you purchased them. Mine never last that long though. Contact Tastefully SImple and ask just to be sure.

  • They're all dry stuff. The drink stuff, if it's a powder mix, might be a little gummy, but will still be ok after mixing really really well! Pasta mixes will be fine, pasta doesn't expire. Spices, you'll have to go by taste, but they should be fine if thye've never been opened. I've used beer bread mix over 2 years after buying and it was fine, didn't raise quite as much as usual but tasted good.

  • Anon: Pasta DOES expire. I would not eat anything dry that has expired...a kid DIED from eating pancakes made with expired pancake mix. There is a reason things have an expiration date on them.

  • Is there a reason TS doesn't put expiration dates on their products? My consultant is no longer available. Most were bought 1-2 years ago I believe. Between moving and having to put up so kids didn't tear it up they just were never used.
