Consider the date on gels as being a way of tracking how long you've owned the thing rather than an expiry date. they're pretty much pure sugar, so won't go off (dangerously) for many years.

 found an old batch in the bottom of a bag that were abut 18 months past the expiry and tasted like new

the only thing that might happen is the gel might begin to separate a little bit, which might give a little texture to it as bits crystalise

I only like them because I don't like stuffing my jersey pockets with real food that I probably won't eat. :P

Bonking aside, it was interesting having a Torq rhubarb and custard flavour gel that had spent two hours in thirty two degrees of heat and direct sunshine. In my semi-delirious mind, and all heated up like that, it was not so far from the childhood Sunday dinner favourite.
