Please be advised that some of the items within our Sale section have been reduced due to their approaching Expiration or Best By date. These dates will be published on the product listing pages during a Sale, so please be aware of the time before you purchase. Items will have reduced prices as the expiration or best by date approaches closer, and will be removed 6-8 weeks after the listed date. This means that you could potentially purchase an item and then receive it after it expires.
All Sale Items are non-refundable, whether or not they list an approaching expiration or best by date.
Information about “Best by” and Expiration dates on dry packaged foods.
If you look at the back of the packaging “Best by” dates, or shomikigen "賞味期限" in Japan, are set by manufacturers and applied to foods with longer shelf life and can be consumed at least 3 months after the indicated date. This is used as more of an indicator towards quality (like taste, texture) than safety, meaning if you eat a candy after this date the flavor might be a bit off but it will not be harmful.
As always if you have any questions or concerns please write us before you make a purchase at firstname.lastname@example.org
