Aren't yogurt and sour cream already spoiled milk products? What's the
point of the expiration date? To note double secret expiration?

No, yogurt and sour cream are lactic acid cultures/fermentations which
actually help keep the milk/cream in them from spoiling. The use by
date means after that, the milk/cream in it will likely spoil, being
overtaken by other bacteria.

So it's not originally spoiled, it's originally altered with a certain
bacteria in larger quantities, and then over time spoils naturally,
later, just like unaltered milk or cream. : )

Joe, you can use this rule of thumb: If it's strawberry yoghurt and
it's green, throw it out.

If it's green yoghurt then it will hurt.
