Well, I made one batch of the frosting (which it turned out great!) and was looking to see if the label had any storage/shelf life instructions, since I won't be using all of the 3 lb. tub, and noticed a July 2013 date. It is so tiny I never noticed it when I made my purchase.
Under the UPC label it says "BB Date: July 2013." Am I wrong to assume that it's a "best by" or "best before" date? Should I return it to the store?
The frosting looks and tasted fine but now I don't know if it's safe to ingest.
