No one has a certain answer? I knew that I should have only bought one carton not two, I don't wanna throw it away. Then again I don't want to get diahrrereeaarera.

Yeah, usually you have about 6 to 7 days to drink it. I always take a tiny sip, then if it's ok, I go ahead and drink it.

Milk, on the other hand, is quite different. I noticed it goes bad 2-4 days after the expiration date.

The OJ in my refrigerator says June 2nd also. I am going to go about another week. The thing is though, if I know it is expiring like I do, I just drink more. It's not bad for you to just load up on OJ or anything. As long as it isn't a full gallon.
Now that I think about it, I am going to stop with the capn and coke and go with the absolut and oj.
Thanks for the inspiration.:D
I have gone over a week past the deadline-never had a problem.

Yeah milk goes bad rather quickly you can usually smell something raunchy but I have never had this same experience with OJ though.

Yes the OJ has been in the fridge this whole time since I bought it two weeks ago, haven't even opened it up yet.

Guess I'll be drinking 2-3 glasses of OJ this week, cool!

This is why I always dig in the back of the juice/milk/yogurt display to get the farthest date ;)

How cold is your fridge? If it?s right at 33F, I?d say drink up and enjoy, as long as it still tastes good.

OJ never lasts until even close to the expiration date in my fridge because I like it so much. Cans of pop might sit for months on the other hand.

I?m kind of a freshness freak, so I don?t drink milk after a few days before the expiration date, because I can taste the difference.

Ironically that's what I did also but I bought two cartons because it was on sale (2 for $5 - usually costs a lot more). I'm almost done with the first one which also expires 6/2.

I don't think the inside of my fridge has a temp gauge.

Well at least you didn't buy 2 gallons like I did the other day, on sale for the same reason :)

LOL if I had bought 2 gallons that would take me forever to drink. It's all my fault though I should have started drinking it two weeks ago.

You said the date is *SELL BY* so you should be safe for at least a week or more.Besides oj is acidic and therefor doesn't spoil very easily

<< Besides oj is acidic and therefor doesn't spoil very easily >>


Yeah Johnny, i agree, but I have had bad oj. I can't remember how old is was but it did go bad. Maybe 3 weeks. I ran out of vodka that week...

iamfried - Did your bad OJ smell or did you not notice until you tasted it? One week after the SELL BY date, I should be alright.
