Do I need to refrigerate my items?
American Spoon items are shelf stable before opening excluding the Maple Cream. Once opened, we recommend refrigerating all items to maintain optimal flavor aside from the Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, Raw Honey, and Star Thistle Honey.
What is the shelf life of American Spoon products?
We recommend locating the ‘Best By’ date printed on all American Spoon items for the optimal flavor and color lifespan of the product. If the ‘Best By’ date has been exceeded, we advise disposing of the product.
