3. What is the Shelf Life of your Products?

Since our product offering is so versatile, the shelf life varies between products.                                   
All Lady Fortunes® cookies ideal at room temperature (between 65–72 degrees). A cool closet, pantry or cellar is just fine- just keep out of direct sunlight. DO NOT REFRIGERATE OR FREEZE YOUR COOKIES!!! We use real chocolate, so subjecting it to major temperature changes can cause it to discolor and look unappetizing. All products should be kept air-tight (in original wrapper) stored in a cool dry place, out of direct sunlight.
