Great deal if free.

I like to grab the Act II 3-packs at Dollerama. $1.25 for 3 and they're always there for the taking.

I haven't had this in a long while. Much easier having it delivered to the doorstep in 2 days than to endure long lineups at Walmart.

I find expired popcorn easily burns when microwaved so you'll need to be careful and underpop a bit.

I don't think so.

I actually ordered this exact product last year. We didn't go through them all before they expired. Kept eating them anyway, months after the best before date and they tasted fine to me.

Not as long you're the one eating it...lol.
It's a best before date not an expiry date, so it's safe to consume but might not taste as good as the oils go rancid and there could be off/unpleasant flavours.

wouldn't be worried about expired popcorn but more about eating microwave popcorn in general

lots of diacetyl and PFOA in there

better off getting kernels (organic preferably) and putting them in a brown paper bag and nuke them if you must

A more serious version of the same answer is that even if it's perfectly safe (and often it is), foods aren't allowed to be sold past their expiry date. It's a CYA move so that the store doesn't get sued "in case" someone ate something that was starting to go, and got sick.

But as long as you've got some common sense, you can safely go long past the expiry date of many foods.

It's not even necessarily an "expiry" date, as in "the food might not be good after this date". Often they are "best before", as in "it's still fine, just might not taste as fresh anymore".

Note that if you try to play this game too often, Amazon will stop you from any kind of goodwill gesture, and maybe worse. I used to work for them... Your account will get flagged.

Amazon has better management this year for the grocery product expiry date. This year, I think I have only received one product will expired the same month. I tried the product and it seems there is no difference, so I didn't request the refund or replacement.

Last year is the worst, I almost received at least one expired product per month especially from the pet category. If you indeed received the expired product, I don't think you need to worry about the account being flagged. I'm sure Amazon staff actually go to double check since I saw the product was taken down when I reported expired product. However, if you try to SCAM for free product, I'm sure you will be banned from shopping at Amazon very soon.

Actually there is no way you know the expiry date before ordering the product. Same product (but from different shipment) maybe located on different warehouse. One person may receive an expired product while others may not.

I heard there is tons of expired food in the garbage bins behind supermarkets. If you get lucky you might even find a few things that are yet to expire!

Neither of those ingredients (PFOA in the bag lining and diacetyl in butter flavour) are used anymore, they stopped years ago.

That's good to hear if its true. If so , do you know what chemical they have replaced them with? With regards to the PFOA, they still need a chemical(s) to make the lining stick free. I heard they now use a compound in the same family as PFOA.
