Ah! That sounds like my house as I am the only one that drinks it and since it is cheaper to purchase a gallon than a half gallon and have it if you need it - well - normally there is quite a bit left at the expiration date is exceeded. I only drink it in tea in the morning, maybe a bowl of cereal once in a blue moon so...but I got to have it for tea in the morning or there is hell to pay! LOL!!
