  • How long do butterscotch candies last in the freezer? Properly stored, butterscotch candies will maintain best quality for about 12 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only - butterscotch candies that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • Are butterscotch candies safe to use after the "expiration" date on the package? Yes, provided they are properly stored, the package is undamaged and there are no signs of spoilage (see below) - commercially packaged butterscotch candies will typically carry a "Best By," "Best if Used By," "Best Before," or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the butterscotch candies will remain at peak quality.
  • How to tell if butterscotch candies are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the butterscotch candies: discard any that have an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the butterscotch candies.
