2 Month Old Gochujang - Still Edible?

비빔밥☆비빔밥☆ StockholmPosts: 20Member
I bought 2 month old gochujang on sale. D:
They told me it's still edible & if I don't like it I could come back to the store...
I'm so stupid because it wasn't that much cheaper & otherwise I NEVER eat anything old, not even 1 day.
And TWO monts old, I can't believe I bought it. D:
So I don't wanna try it, lol. I was recently sick & puked all night so now I'm really conscious of what I eat.


So my options are;
1) Go back to the store and beg them to take it back.
(I don't like this idea so much, because the people @ the store were so nice to me.)
2) Throw it away & buy a new one at another store [more expensive].
or
3) Try it anyway.

Anyway, my question is, have anyone here eaten old gochujang?
Does it taste alright? Did you feel sick afterwards?

    If it was sealed up,it's fine. gochujang lasts for ever. No germs can grow in that spiciness! LOL!

    gochujang is like... honey or w/e
    it lasts almost forever... :]

    in korean dramas that are about old past or w/e
    they keep gochujang in those big pots outside for almost... years...
    i think...

    There really isn't an experiation date on gojujang.
    I am sure it would taste "better" before its "expiration date" on the container if there is any.

    Ah. I have homemade gochujang that my grandmother had made like 14 years ago...
    Uh, I can tell you that her gochujang was the best and even if it's like 14 years old, it's still the best.

    I'm sure your store-bought gochujang would be fine image I'm not sure if factory made gochujang has preservatives but nothing bad would ever grow in stuff like that! xD
