yes assuming you froze it straight away after you bought it.

e.g If you bought it in January and froze it and best before was 20th of Jan 2011 and you want to eat it now it will be fine.

did u buy it frozen or fresh and reading the best before fresh date?

Was it fresh to begin with then frozen before the best before date? Or bought frozen with the date on it? If bought fresh and then frozen by you before the date then it will be fine.

food doesnt last forever even if you freeze it, is a sensible question

Not sure about stuff that's already been frozen with the date to use by. Normally best before just means its at its best BEFORE that date but won't kill you if you eat it after that. "Use by" date is different because of bacteria etc. meaning it should be used by that date.

Used by dates are just guideline, we waste so much food in this country because of them, we survived way before they came in.

It's common sense if it thaws out and it's smells bad don't cook it. If looks alright use it.

What else do you do with bacon?

Maybe you make a bacon dog?

It's the sort of question my son who attends school would/should ask.
My apologies if the OP is a child.

i froze some lamb 2 days before it was to go off (manf. recommendations) took it out the freeazer a week later and chomped it down...... no problems here.

It's not, do a search and you will see varying opinions and many people looking for and giving advice. it's a sensible question and you're showing your lack of intelligence by your comments.

I'd eat it. Not the bacon though as its probably mostly fat and rind.

Had some frozen mince that was two weeks past best before. Made a cottage pie with it for the kids. They ate it all and no illness. Moral of the story; if your kids are a pain then out of date mince won't help.

I stick meat in the freezer for months and i've never had any ill effects from it

As long as it's not freezer burnt, it'll be reet!
