Shelf Life Tips
- How long do frozen toaster pastries last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep toaster pastries frozen at all times.
Properly stored, frozen toaster pastries will maintain best quality for about 3 months in the freezer, although they will usually remain safe to eat after that.
Are frozen toaster pastries safe to eat after the ‘expiration’ date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen toaster 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 toaster pastries will remain at peak quality.
How long will frozen toaster pastries remain safe to eat? Frozen toaster 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 toaster pastries are no longer good? If dry spots or discolorations have developed on the frozen toaster pastries, freezer burn has begun to set in - this will not make the frozen toaster pastries unsafe to eat, but it will harm the texture and taste.
