I purchased 2 of these Birthday Cake Bites over Black Friday but as Christmas gifts (I know, they are probably best purposed as birthday gifts). They lasted just fine at room temperature for a month. I really liked the taste of these little cake bites, but some people might find them too sweet. I could only eat 3-4 at one time, and this is probably a good thing so that you're not raiding the entire jar in one sitting. The packaging is very clean and professional. Still a good gift idea in my opinion.
