9 months (best quality)



  • How long do frozen pastries last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep pastries frozen at all times.
  • Properly stored, frozen pastries will maintain best quality for about 9 months in the freezer, although they will usually remain safe to eat after that.
  • Are frozen pastries safe to eat after the ‘expiration’ date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen pastries 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 frozen pastries will remain at peak quality.
  • How long will frozen pastries remain safe to eat? Frozen pastries that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely, as long as they have been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • How to tell if frozen pastries are no longer good? If dry spots or discolorations have developed on the frozen pastries, freezer burn has begun to set in - this will not make the frozen pastries unsafe to eat, but it will harm the texture and taste.
