Tips

  • How long does a package of breadsticks last? The precise answer depends to a large extent on storage conditions -to maximize the shelf life of breadsticks, store in a cool, dry area.
  • How long do breadsticks last at room temperature? Properly stored, a package of breadsticks will generally stay at best quality for about 6 to 9 months.
  • To maximize the shelf life of opened breadsticks, keep package tightly closed.
  • Are breadsticks safe to use after the "expiration" date on the package? Yes, provided they are properly stored and the package is undamaged - commercially packaged breadsticks 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 breadsticks will remain at peak quality.
  • Pantry storage time shown is for best quality only - after that, the breadsticks' texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, they will still be safe to consume if they have been stored properly, the package is undamaged, and there are no signs of spoilage (see below).
  • How to tell if breadsticks are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the breadsticks: discard any that have an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the breadsticks.
