Question Does Sno-cone syrup go bad?

I have 4 bottles of syrup in my fridge and 2 more in my pantry. I know the 2 in the pantry were in the fridge at one point in time but we never actually opened them - and I don't believe they came foil sealed either. Does this stuff go bad? We haven't used it since the summer and probably won't use it again until it heats up. And unlike all the other food stuff that seems to need dates on them, these bottles don't have dates anywhere that I can see.

I don't think so (or I hope not). My kids have been using the ones we have off and on for a couple years! I think it's mainly sugar and water (and coloring).

No. Foods with a high concentration of sugar and a low amount of protein don't grow bacteria very well at all, especially if sealed.

I suppose it will eventually go bad. But it should have a pretty long life first. We have some in our fridge that was opened at the end of the summer in 09 and no one got sick from it this year.
I'm going on the theory that if it really mattered, it would have a date.

Boil it up, maybe add a touch more water, strain it, and a syrup can last a long time.

Cool - thanks everyone. What we have is still liquid (no chunks of anything in it) and it smells okay but I wasn't entirely sure if it could go bad or not.

Sugar is a preservative so syrup generally last forever. I have on rare occasions had maple syrup get mold in it but I suspect it's been contaminated when being used.

The problem is cross contamination where something that can spoil gets into the syrup. Keep it sealed up and it should last for a long time.
