    Hi all,

    Bit of a random question really, but Asda currently have the bags of 12 babybels on offer, 2 for £3, and I'm just wondering if they have a long life on them, or if they need to be eaten quickly?

    Just at the price, they seem to beat the other supermarkets, who are about £3 for 12, whereas I would get 24!

    Thanks in advance!

    I reckon they'd probably be ok, hard cheese can keep for a while (basically because they're already gone of - that's what cheese it!) and the wax around the Babybel won't let any air in so that will help too. No idea what the actual life of them is because I always eat them pretty quickly!

    That's great thank you! I've been planning my shopping and meals for the next week, and I don't want to eat all of them in 1 week, although I do love cheese!

    The ones I'm eating have June on the sell by date - they're fine

    Ok I do have a good fridge, but like all things open it, smell it, taste it use your judgement - remember, sell by / use by dates are relatively new, only 20 years or so

    my mum bought babybel lights for me- and we stuck them in the fridge (just individually) and i was eating one last night- paranoid that i was poisoning myself....because i didnt know the use-by date :p

    I think I read somewhere recently that some supermarkets are going to stop putting 'use by' dates on products !

    That would be good! I only use them as a guide, particularly with fresh food and do always check to see what the food is like - so much lasts past it's best before or use by date. I just haven't bought Babybel in such a long time, I couldn't remember if they had a longish date on, and I want to buy 4 bags, as it works out to half price, and don't want to eat them up quickly!

    I have tins which are out of date, but they are perfectly fine to use. Yet I have a friend who throws things away the moment it comes to the end of the best before, and must waste so much food and money!

    We ate out of date ones in our burgers last week and we're still here ;) I bought the ones from Asda this week. But got normal and light. As boys will eat them c
