Rejoice! Holiday Left-Overs Don’t Actually Go Bad When Their Expiration Dates Say: If you’re like many of us here at the Test Kitchen, you’ve got tons of food sitting in your fridge after the holidays. And even though it’s all past the expiration date, it still feels wrong to toss it, right? Well, fear not: according to NPR, the dates have far more to do with the “optimal taste” of products than their safety. So crack open that orange juice from 2012 and enjoy.
