This is wrong: Don't use any food or drink after the end of the "use by" date on the label, even if it looks and smells fine. This is because using it after this date could put your health at risk. ... Once a food with a "use by" date on it has been opened, you also need to follow any instructions, such as "eat within 3 days of opening".
Meh. I've eaten chocolate of more than a year past the best before date. Cheese of more than two weeks past the best before date. Some meat after a day or perhaps two, but only after looking, smelling, and asking someone else. As for meat, heating it (e.g. tosti) can help a bit too. Do be really careful with meat though, as it is one of the more tricky foods regarding dates. Never had any issues.
