How Long do Fresh Donuts Last?

So how long do donuts last? Well, the answer depends on a few factors:

  • Type of donut
  • Where it’s stored
  • How it’s stored

The type of donut definitely matters here. Cream-filled donuts don’t last as long as other fresh donuts do! This is because of the milk in the cream. Other types of donuts tend to last longer. Always store cream-filled donuts in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.

Here’s a look at how long cream-filled donuts last when stored properly:

How to Store Fresh Donuts

How long do you want your donuts to last?

If you plan to consume them within the next 2 days, just store them in your pantry.

If you want them to last for a week, store them in the fridge.

And if you’re really looking to enjoy them long-term, store those donuts in a freezer – they’ll last anywhere from 2-3 months!fresh donuts

Fresh Donuts Storage Tips:

  • To maximize the shelf life of donuts, cover with foil or plastic wrap or place in plastic bag to prevent drying out.
  • To freeze fresh donuts, wrap them tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place in heavy-duty freezer bag.
