Tips
  • Store in cool, dry area; after opening, keep package tightly closed.
  • Refrigeration or freezing is recommended in very hot, humid environments (over 80°F).
  • Freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Storage time shown is for best quality only — after that, the jelly beans’ texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, they will still be safe to consume if they have been stored properly.
  • If jelly beans develop an off odor, flavor or appearance, they should be discarded for quality purposes.
  • “Best By,” “Best if Used By,” and “Use By” dates on commercially packaged foods sold in the United States represent the manufacturer's estimate of how long the product will remain at peak quality — in most cases, the jelly beans will still be safe to consume after that date, as long as they have been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
