So this means I have to throw away 11 packets (boxed) of Sugar Free Kool-Aid dated, 2FEB09...right??
A "best by" date only implies that the product will be freshest if you use it by that date. It doesn't spoil but may not taste as good as it would have if you had used it by the date on the package.

I wouldn't be afraid of it....try one, and if it taste crummy then dump them. Am sure you won't be POISONED by tasting it.
One of my favorite websites is http://www.stilltasty.com. So many things are still safe years after the date on the package. It has saved me tons of money with things I would normally have thrown away.
If I were using it myself I wouldn't throw it away but if donating they just might toss it themselves if they look at expiration dates at all.
