Expired Coke

I know this might sound kinda stupid but should the expiry date on coca cola be taken really seriously?

Only asking because A) they probably add lots of preservatives anyway and B) because of what happened yesterday.

me and a mate were walking home from lunch when I see 2 cases of coke (2, 24 cases of coke) just sitting there and thought "thank fuck I needed a coke" so me and a mate get ready to bolt with a case each but then I said no one would leave perfectly good coke out so there must be something wrong with it so we decide to take a taste test. when he opened it though it was more cloudy and when I tasted it it tasted earthy. so we decided not to take it. we checked the expiry date and it said 05/06 but it had 2 rows so we weren't sure.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Did you just find this case of pop laying on the ground or something? And that in itself didn't stop you from drinking it? I am quite confused.

    I wouldnt drink it, as it is quite out of date. They have the dates for a reason, and Coke would take into consideration the preservatives etc.

    well when coke is cloudy and tastes earthy, it does make you think.

    If it didn't taste funny, I would have totally taken it. I just thought it was my lucky day.

    Just put some vodka in it and you wont be able to taste the earthiness :D

    Seriously though. I wouldn't drink it, its not worth it for 50p a can.

    I'd only stop drinking something if it tasted bad. Don't care about use by dates.

    well it tasted earthy at the beginning, like berries. I should've let my mate drink more and see what happened :razz:
