Every time I open my parents' fridge, I find something gross. And every time I try to throw it away, my dad yells at me.
  1. Cheddar Cheese
    Cut the mold off. Even if the mold has consumed the entire hunk of cheese. "Mold's good for cheese! Haven't you heard of Gorgonzola?"
  2. Ketchup
    Last week I found two half-used bottles. One expired 6 months ago, and one EXPIRED IN 2013. The dates on condiments are always a few years out, so I don't even want to think about when that ketchup was made.
  3. Pickles
    I don't know...do pickles expire?
  4. Jam
    "The sugar preserves it!"
  5. Mayonnaise
    Tbh, non-expired mayo has always felt questionable to me too
  6. Eggs
    "When I worked in the markets back in the day, we would just wipe the date off and stamp a new one on!" I really hope that isn't true. That being said, in my experience eggs are usually good for at least a month after their expiration date, so I'll give him that.
  7. Half and half
    "It's a suggestion!"
