What does Jello taste like past it's expiration date?
I've discovered old jello that is from 2009, what will it taste like if I eat it?

Well, the expiration date is there for a reason N00b chuckles.
The complex sugars decay into simple salts, so it'll be very salty, and possibly very toxic.
There is also a possibility of the gelatin decaying into an acidic substance known as gelatide, which is dangerous to ingest and will burn your tongue in large amounts.

look again. Bet thats not an expiration date but a best if used by date.
The powder would perhaps smell old. If it doesn't, the jello is probably fine.
Lots of sugar in that stuff and sugar is a preservative....
