Do Pretzels Go Bad?

I recently discovered an unopened bag of Rold Gold pretzels in my basement closet. (Yes, this truly is a "Found in My Basement" blog post!) My excitement in finding my favorite snack food was tempered by the fact that the bag shows a use by date of June 2014. While I don't use milk or eggs beyond the expiration date (well, maybe one or two days after the date if the milk smells okay), would an unopened bag of pretzels be stale or unsafe to eat 8 months after the expiration date?

As a veteran expired pretzel eater, I have never had a problem with expired Rold Gold. We buy a ton of it for snack food for volunteers, and I had one this morning that was dated last August. It's not perfect, but certainly more than edible!

Upon further review, the expiration date on the pretzels was May, so we're now 9 months late. I've actually been in touch with Frito-Lay about this. I'll post more with an update.

I just had a bag of pretzels dated May 2012 in March 2016. Tastes perfectly fine will keep you updated if my daring moment of indulgence leads to any serious side effects.
