How long do you keep opened non-dairy items in your fridge after opening? I'm talking about products like Tofutti Sour Cream and Cream cheese.

I have both items opened in my fridge right now; the sour cream has been in there for about a week since I added onion soup mix to it. The cream cheese has been in there for about a month. The best by dates are for very long, but nothing mentions after opening. Both have no signs of spoiling besides the usual separate of sour cream. I have been using the dip I made, but I am curious if a month is pushing it for the cream cheese.

How long do you store yours opened?

I keep mine a long time and I haven't gotten sick yet... I keep tofutti cream cheese at work for bagel fridays and it takes me awhile to use the tub up, at least a month.

I've used the cream cheese months after opening. It'll go like.. pink when it's bad.

Ooooh! Very good to know! I haven't gone and bought this stuff because I was worried I wouldn't use it all in time. DUH, it's not dairy. I wasn't thinking too hard, apparently. (My brain still has to connect things sometimes...)

Very good to know. Now I can go out and buy some and not worry! Yipeeee!
