I've bought some hot and spicy chili veggie dogs (Yves brand) for the first time, and I'm wondering how long they are good for opened in the fridge (but resealed in a ziploc)? They are delicious, but I don't feel like eating one everyday. Will they last longer than a week? If so, approximately how much longer?

From their website:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.yvesveggie.com/faq.php#q_23" target="_blank">http://www.yvesveggie.com/faq.php#q_23</a><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block"><br><b>What is the best way to store Yves Veggie Cuisine products?</b><br><br>
All our products will keep if unopened and refrigerated until the best before date. If you wish to extend their shelf life, you can freeze our products and they will keep for an additional four months. Since Yves products are free of preservatives, once the package is opened the product should be consumed within 2 to 3 days.<br><br><br><b>Can Yves Veggie Cuisine products be frozen?</b><br><br>
Yes, if the packages have not been opened, our products can be frozen for up to 4 months with possible minor changes in texture. After freezing, the products should be thawed in the refrigerator and consumed within 2 to 3 days.</div>

Although, I don't see why you couldn't freeze them after the package has been opened. *shrug*

I have put mine in the freezer after they are opened and they have always been fine! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I've never eaten any of their products, but I figured they'd be fine after opening. Not sure why they recommend only freezing them if the package hasn't been opened.

i've put them in a tightly sealed container and eaten them two weeks later- no problem. i think they'll be fine for a long time.

Hmmm... Yves veggie dogs do weird things in the fridge... they scare me for this reason...<br><br><br><br>
I'd definitely freeze them. The only reason the usually say "unopened" is so that you won't blame them if you froze an opened product that was old or starting to go bad or whatever... then expected it to be of good quality when thawed... (Does that make sense? It's late)

Yep, makes sense. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
And what type of weird things are we talking about? Mould growth really quickly? Or just tasting awful?

um... they were covered with this thick slimy snot-like goo that wouldn't rinse off. (Don't even know why I wanted to touch the things... ewww) This was only after two days in the 'fridge, in the original, but <i>opened</i> package...<br><br><br><br>
Another time I had some I'd forgotten about for two weeks - (you can't expect anything to look good at that point I realize)... they didn't appear "fuzzy" moldy or anything... but turned this really freakish yellow green.<br><br><br><br>
Don't get me wrong, i like mock meats, usually a LOT... but I've been a little weirded out by Yves Dogs ever since...
