I have an epic coffee addiction. It is not uncommon for me to have 5+ different kind of coffee creamers in my fridge at a time.
I got a new flavor last week (or so I thought), and tried it. It was pretty good. This morning, I thought I would use it again.
I opened my fridge pulled out the creamer and poured it in my coffee.
It was kinda chunky.
"Hmm..." I thought, "That's weird."
But I stirred it in, and drank it. Surely, it was fine.. I just bought it. Maybe this kind needs to be shaken prior to use. Tasted okay... kinda weird, but I chalked it up to the breakfast I was having.
Then I went back for a second cup. Opened the fridge, pulled out the creamer, and turned around to my coffee maker. The coffee creamer I'd just used was still sitting there. I'd ever put it away.
Turns out, I have tried that flavor before and never finished it bottle... It expired in March....
It is actually that small bottle pictured above... I posted that on TwitPic 419 days ago.
Normally I never have to check or throw away coffee creamer. I generally just consume it well before the point in which I would need to toss it. I never bother even looking through my coffee creamer when I clean out the fridge. I don't know how this one managed to get away from me.
