I drank Gatorade that was about a year past the date on the bottles and it really churned my stomach up all day. The abdominal pain was pretty intense.

YMMV.

This reminds me that I've got a jar of curry sauce in my pantry that expired in 2001. I guess I should either eat it soon or throw it away.

Or it was the raw hot dogs 9 months past pull date you used the gatorade to wash down... just sayin...

Safe? Probably.

It's going to taste like crap though. I have some 1 1/2 year old vintage and it's not so great,I only use it for emergency hangover duty.

If he dies, my "out" will be that I was talking about Powerade, not Gatorade.

Anyone remember All Sport? I used to love that stuff back in the late 90s. When I took a stock clerk job at a supermarket in 2007, we found a case of it in the storage room and I took it home and drank it all in the span of about a week with no ill effect. Went bad in 2000, IIRC.

The packaging can be compromised allowing bacteria in, thus making you sick if you consume it.

I used to carry a pack of gatoraid in the trunk of the car for the wife if her sugar got low.. fast forward 5 years, in the HOT Louisiana SUN..

I was way , way, way , way ,way out in the swamps and had driven her car since it got better gas mileage. I threw my day bag along with tools and took off. we were out there for like 28 hours working a problem and I was starving and thirsty .. I ate the tuna foil pack that I carry in my bag but couldnt find anything worth drinking except for her nasty gatoraid.. it was stronger tasting but the tuna still was stronger..

for the record, it went out 4 years ago... I lived... just happened last month..

Drank half of it. Got the gurglies down South and figured I'd stop before I had to drop trou and sit on my garbage can.

I'm surprised. I figured they dump enough potassium sorbate in there to end life on earth.

I think the ingredients kill any bacteria, either that or it feeds bacteria, I can't remember which, just drink it.

Sugary water is never safe to drink anyway.
