    Looks like you missed the “best by” date. Good luck my friend.

    No, he’s good ‘til June. What I’ve never got is why something that ‘is what it is’ can be budget? I think what you’re getting is the product at the price it can be sold at but, by labeling it ‘budget’ or ‘value’ it enables the store to sell stuff without those words on the lack at a premium. Checked out some individual trifles recently, value vs standard. The ingredients and balance were exactly the same. I would have been paying 12p, 43%, over the odds for the same quantity of the same stuff in a more decorative tub! And, whilst on the subject, what on God’s Earth is a ‘value’ banana? Compared to the standard ones they’re yellow and bent and taste of, well, banana. Difference is 7p per kilo. Go figure.

    Correct, the other date is when it was packed.

    I'm generally not very concerned about expiration dates. If it looks good, smells good and tastes good it's good.

    The bacon was good, had it with fried eggs (got them from a collegue who keeps a few hens) and bread fried in butter. Healthy? Naaa, but good.

    Quick tip when buying bacon.

    The more flexible a package is the higher the meat content. Fat is firmer than muscle when cooled, so when you try to bend a package it resists more.

    Looking at the little window on the back on tells you about the last slice. There can be a significant difference between ends of the section of pork belly (rasher).
