Can Yogurt Be Too Sour Indicating Spoiled??

lisaleira | May 27, 201409:13 PM     8

So I got a big tub of full fat plain greek yogurt at a dollar store that had lots of expired items. I was very happy about this. I think it was Oikos brand. Anyway it was a little past expiration date. Stayed in fridge for a while, finally opened and tasted. Seemed unusually sour. I like it but more sour than most plain greek yogurt. Nothing funny looking no discoloration mold separation nothing.

Does this means that more of the good yogurt bacteria have grown and so its extra good and yogurty?

Or could this mean that the yogurt is "spoiled" ie could make one sick because of I suppose some bad bacteria.

I have eaten it so we'll see but am curious what yall think or know or conclude!
