So found a bunch of yogurt hiding in back of the fridge.

2 qty - 28 oz Brown Cow yogurt - best buy date 11-11-09. Brand new, never opened, looks fine.

Still safe? Should I only use it in a cooked recipe? Or can we make smoothies with it?

thoughts? feedback?

I admit that I've used yoghurt after it's expiry date - but only a day or so later. Almost 2 months? I wouldn't risk it.

I've used yogurt that old....I smell/taste it for funky-ness (I find bad yogurt to be VERY funky) and then proceed. I would think cooking it would be totally fine. But I am totally a use after expired kinda person

same here.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

smell it and taste it. and be sure to look through it for mold chunks otherwise eat up!

one time I ate some old yogurt an it tasted just fine until I realized the chunks of mold in my mouth! ewwww! I didn't eat yogurt for a long while after that!

Smell it and if it's still white, it should be fine. If it's tinged pink or orange, toss it.

Both of these I also look on the lid because sometimes mold is on the lid but not noticeable on the product yet.
