If I really heated it thoroughly do you reckon it would be ok? Seems a shame to bin it but I don't want to poison myself and DS2.

DH had some cake-thingy last night on which the sell-by date was 17th August. He was still breathing this morning.

Yes. I don't think those use by dates are that accurate. More of a 'heads-up'...if it's close to or past its use by date, give it a good look over and a sniff. Mostly you can just tell when you should bin something.

Does it have cream in? If so then I probably wouldn't, sorry. Well might eat it myself, but wouldn't give to children. If just vegetable ingredients then I would think it would be fine.

If the cream had gone off, wouldn't it just taste vile, though? (rather than actually kill you, I mean!)

It does have cream in it but looking at the ingredients it seems to be mostly water and onion. Only 9% mushroom and then cream in the next ingredient.
I think I'll really heat it thoroughly and risk it. Thanks all.
