Which begs the question. Do I risk it?
After all, the expiration dates are only a 'suggestion', right? And seeing how Malaysian food is more valuable than gold, you can't be throwing these away.

My wife keeps telling me to trash expired food. Often, I ignore her and still use the spices that are years old. I imagine one of these days I'm going to die of food poisoning, and she's going to have on my tombstone: "I told you so"
