Chinese traditional pastries' lifespan

I orderd some Chinese traditional pastries from Keewah. I received the large package and just wondering how long these goods would last since I can't eat them all at once. THanks.

I ordered Pineapple Paste Cake, mooncake, and egg rolls.

  1. Wrapped in their original packaging, the pineapple cakes and mooncakes will easily last a week at room temp, if not more.

      I received my package last week. If I store in the fridge, perhaps they could last longer (since I haven't broke into them yet). I shoud've opened and ate them upon arrival...

    2. I've always stored my lotus paste filling mooncakes at room temperature. And they've lasted for weeks in the original packaging. It's very useful when I need to regift them.
