When shopping, please remember to always check the expiration or sell-by date on the foods you're buying. Some stores are better at rotating stock than others so it's always good to double-check this. Try to buy the item that has the most time until the expiration date. Some stores even have policies regarding finding out of date stock (like they discount an in-date item or even give you one for free) so be sure to check with your store.
