So I have this unopened jar of natural almond butter in a glass jar. The expiration date says July 2011. Has it really been expired, or is it still good to eat?

I've never had almond butter before, and neither has anyone else I know. Not to mention I'm the only person home at the moment!

You should be able to tell if its bad by smelling it. It will have a rancid smell from the oil going bad.

The dates are usually a "sell by" date. I have found that food is usually good way after the expiration as long as it has not been opened.

<p>I had what I thought was a terrible attack of the flu twice within a couple of weeks, but yesterday it occurred to me that I might want to check the expiration date on the almond butter that was in the fridge made by Whole Foods. Sure enough it said "expired on 02/July 2013" wow surprise, surprise!." Found an almond found an almond just now, got a tummy ache, dry heaves and the runs for 2 days now gas pains....hot air balloon take me away!! The PRINT IS TOO VAGUE!!!</p>
