2 Month Old Gochujang - Still Edible?

21 posts in this topic

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?

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 :) I'm not sure if factory made gochujang has preservatives but nothing bad would ever grow in stuff like that! xD
