Search this thread. How do I read the expiration date?? I have some quaker chewy bars that's been sitting in my drawer for about a year now. I thought I should eat them up since they are just taking up the drawer's space. But before I eat them, I just wanted to make sure that they are not past the expiration date but all I see in the packaging are some weird numbers and letters.
I don't know why they had to put that instead of an easier way like MR 30 Everyone would know that reads as March 30th, Can anyone come up with the expiration date with that numbers and letters? Eat half of it, wait a few hours, see if you run to the bathroom or not. And yeah, I think the expiration dates are on the actual box. You can verify by going to your supermarket and check if exp.
Thanks a lot Rehan!! Good thing I didn't eat them yet! Gonna throw them out tonite. I'm never buying those 40 packs anymore. I just can't finish them all Come on, just one bite. I remember awhile back my mother bought one box of no-name brand joe-louis.
I ate a few of them before she bought a box of the official ones. So of course I polished off the good one's first. So by the time I got back to the no-name they had been sitting there quite awhile. I ate a couple of them, and found them to very chewy and stale. I just figured they were old. So my brother comes over and takes one. He takes one bite and looks down at it.
The thing was just filled with mold. I spent the next few minutes just hoping that the one he grabbed was the only moldy one, and the 2 chewy one's I ate were just stale.

Explore Inspiration. Cherry-Pear Muffins View Recipe.Based off the name, appearance and packaging, many people take Nutri-Grain Bars as a healthy choice without thinking twice.
But are they right to do so? The demand for those three criteria has driven the explosive growth of breakfast, cereal and snack bars. A product sector which hardly existed a couple decades ago, such "healthy" bars now dominate entire aisles in many grocery stores. At a glance, they seem to meet the three coveted criteria of healthy, convenient and delicious.
But they wouldn't be the first bar to cover up for disappointing nutrition with slick marketing. Here's the full story on this pantry and lunchbox staple. Promoting the "Soft Baked" nature of the product was actually a major turning point in its success, as it emphasizes the healthy, wholesome nature of the product.
Together, these factors are enough to convince a huge swath of consumers the product is healthy. But what do the nutrition facts and ingredients say?
Other Nutri-Grain varieties have very similar nutrition facts. A lot of people would write the sugar off as being "from the fruit," meaning it's not as innutritious. While this is true for whole fruitthere's really not much fruit in Nutri-Grain bars, and what is there is so nutritionally degraded during processing that it's hard to consider it "fruit.
This form lacks the fruit's natural fiber and vitamin C content, which were destroyed during processing. While it's more shelf-stable than real fruit, it's really just another way to add sugar to a product. In addition to fruit puree concentrates, Nutri-Grain bars are also stuffed with sweeteners like sugar, dextrose, fructose, invert sugar and corn syrup. All or nearly all the sugar in Nutri-Grain bars qualifies as " added sugar.
Added sugars defined as "sugars or caloric sweeteners added to foods or beverages during processing or preparation" are perhaps the most harmful ingredient in the modern American dietlargely because we eat them in absurd quantities.
The American Heart Association recommends women consume no more than 25 grams of added sugar per day while men should consume no more than 36 grams a day. Again, many Nutri-Grain bar varieties contain 12 grams of added sugar, or nearly half the daily limit for women.
That's not ideal. The grams of fiber in most bars is also somewhat disappointing. If added sugar is the ingredient Americans consume too much of, fiber might be the one thing they need more of ideally in the form of fresh produce and whole grains.
The AHA recommends at least grams of fiber a day for women under 50 and grams a day for men under Fiber helps break down foods for easier digestion, maintains good bowel health, lowers cholesterol levels and helps you feel fuller longer.
High-fiber diets have been linked to positive outcomes such as a reduced risk of diabetes and heart disease. In the short term, snacking on a bar high in fiber keeps you fuller for longer and helps you avoid crashing.Nutri-Grain is a brand of breakfast cereal and breakfast bar made by the Kellogg Company.
