Sorry - got to dash out but feed DD (13) first. I have M&S mac cheese in freezer. Use by date 9/07/17 (when chilled) says eat within one month of freezing.

Can I give it to her?

Be kind!

I would. Without a second thought.

I would smile

Yes x

I would eat it personally, might just not be as yummy as if fresh......im sure lots of people will say otherwise though sad

CathyMedici Mon 09-Oct-17 16:50:27

So, it's 4 months old? And M&S say eat within 1 month of freezing?

newmumwithquestions Mon 09-Oct-17 16:50:36

I would. But I eat the things that I dig out from the back that have been there for over 6 months (or longer)

My understanding is that freezing is safe indefinitely but the quality goes downhill?

Absolutely fine eat away

if its frozen it will be fine. Things in the freezer are supposed to keep for ages. Theyre playing it very safe by saying 1 month, its not necessary.

If it looks like it has freezerburn then maybe now, but otherwise I would

Thank you all. I know that better mums than me would have whipped up a fresh one in the time it took to start this thread blush

Off out now so please don't post macaroni cheese horror stories!!

I'd eat it too. It might not taste quite a s good as it would have done four months ago, but should be perfectly safe

I only chuck stuff out of the freezer when it gets freezer burnt so badly that it's like rubber.

Fillybuster Mon 09-Oct-17 17:02:12

Oh dear - I had to read the op several times before I understood the question hmmblush

I served dh home made soup with a 2015 label on it yesterday. And used up some raw pastry I made 3 years ago when we had guests at the weekend.

Quite frankly, you could probably find various extinct species in the back of my freezer!

dementedpixie Mon 09-Oct-17 17:02:12

Is it a best before date? It's only quality that suffers and it's not a safety issue

dementedpixie Mon 09-Oct-17 17:05:30

I suppose it would be a use by if it had been chilled before. I wouldn't think twice about eating it as freezing keeps it pretty fresh

budgiegirl Mon 09-Oct-17 17:13:09

I would. We had salmon last night that we found at the bottom of our chest freezer. It had a July date on it, and I know it wasn't this July just gone. I'm couldn't say for sure that it was last July either, but we still ate it, and it was fine !

diddl Mon 09-Oct-17 17:14:06

Noooo-she can't!

But I cangrin

PotteringAlong Mon 09-Oct-17 17:14:44

Definitely! There's all sorts in my freezer that I dig out!

MarthaArthur Mon 09-Oct-17 17:17:38

It will be fine. Bugs cant breed in ut frozen. I have eaten things from the freezer literally years after being frozenshock but the longer stuff is in the freezer esoecially dairy cheese/sauce/cream it forms little ice crystals that make it taste not as nice. Harmless but not as tasty.

mathanxiety Mon 09-Oct-17 17:19:44

If I can figure out what an item is (or was) I thaw it, cook it and eat it. Still here and none the worse.

speakout Mon 09-Oct-17 17:23:31

I wouldn't eat or serve it.

I am sure it would be safe, but probably horrid.

NinonDeLenclos Mon 09-Oct-17 17:32:18

Is this a serious question?

Buggeritimgettingup Mon 09-Oct-17 17:39:39

I have things in my freezer older than some of my children....

youngest started school this year

arethereanyleftatall Mon 09-Oct-17 17:57:06

I wouldn't give this a second thought, yes I'd eat it. Lots of stuff on my freezer has been in there for years, all gets eaten.
