    We have bought some Rice Krispie treats home with us from Main Street Confectionery and there is no best before date on the packaging. Do you know how long they keep?

    Hi there, Tracey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Welcome home!  I hope you had the most magical of adventures at Walt Disney World Resort and made some incredible memories!  Don't forget to download all your PhotoPass photos to keep those memories forever!  

    I loved seeing your question about my most favorite Walt Disney World Resort treat EVER!  The Mickey Rice Krispie treats are the first thing I want whenever I arrive at Magic Kingdom Park and promptly make my way to the Main Street Confectionery to get my hands on one!  But rest assured that is not the only one I will indulge in during my trip!  And, of course, we always grab some at the end of our trip to bring home with us, but honestly, they’ve never lasted long enough to go bad – or even question their freshness!  But I did check with a Cast Member and while they were not able to give me an exact answer, they did mention that freshly baked treats should have a shelf life of 5-7 days since no preservatives are used in them.  I checked with some of my fellow panelists also (because they likely have better self-control than I do when it comes to these delicious sweets) and they have enjoyed them at home after several months!  You can refrigerate them to extend their life, but they may not have the same "melt in your mouth" goodness as they do initially!  

    Hopefully this helps answer your question, Tracey!  When in doubt, perhaps a nibble here or there is the key to checking the freshness and if it doesn’t taste as fresh as it previously did then that’s a sign it’s time to ENJOY!
