Default Production & Expiration Dates on Tobacco

Yesterday I was out at the local Game Stop picking up my copy of God of War III when I saw a small tobacco store just a few spaces down the strip mall. I wandered in and saw they had a decent selection of generic hookahs, and a small cabinet of shisha. I assessed their goodies and saw some AF I had not tried before or seen for sale locally. As I was investigating one of the 50g packages I saw the Production date was 08 2008 and Expiration roughly a year after that. The rest of the AF boxes in the case had no dates whatsoever anywhere on the packages.

When it comes to the Production & Expiration dates on various shisha brands...

Does everyone list Pro & Exp dates?

Where should you look typically to find this information?

If no dates exist, do you pass on purchasing the product?

in all my time smoking, i have never seen "bad" shisha. I dont really know what happens after the expiration date, but i have smoked AF after it "expires" and it was exactly the same.

In my experience I would have to agree with swaflyer1. I would be very careful though

Maybe the tobacco gets dry, even well packed after the expire date.

I think if it's a open packet and of moassel after the expiration date maybe you might have a problem. I smoked some really old Nakhla once and had a stronger buzz then usual but nothing worse than that.
Just make sure the AF is real and why not buy a 50g pack to test. If it is new and sealed you shouldn't have a problem.

Just makes me nervous smoking something that is super old like that. I mean it does not stay fresh forever and has to expire at some point. What is the threshold for saying you will pass on something 1+ years old? Wine gets better with age, whiskey gets better with age, most rotten vegetables do not, lol. Unless you are into eating Kim Chi and that is a whole different story.

^that, the only problem I've noticed with old expired tobacco is the taste won't be as pronounced as a fresh batch. This especially goes to most af flavors.
