Purchasing them offers home cooks a convenient and delicious option for entertaining guests or enjoying on a relaxing weekend morning. Pair your blueberry scone with a dollop of clotted cream or a swipe of butter, and you've got a simple, yet satisfying confection that's a joy to savor.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Blueberry Scones expire?
Unopened store-bought blueberry scones, compared to the printed date on the package, usually last for about 1-2 days past their sell by date if stored at room temperature. Once the package is opened, they should be consumed within a day or two for maximum freshness. Homemade blueberry scones typically have a slightly shorter lifespan, remaining fresh for about 1-2 days at room temperature. Both the store-bought and homemade versions can be frozen for up to 1 month.
How do you tell if Blueberry Scones is bad?
If your blueberry scones have gone bad, you're likely to spot some telltale signs. The most obvious is mold - if you see spots of mold or fuzz anywhere on or in your scones, it's time to throw them out. Also, severely stale scones will be hard and dry, and may have an off smell. Lastly, the flavor - if they taste sour or off, it's best not to consume them.
Tips for storing Blueberry Scones to extend shelf life
• Store blueberry scones in a cool, dry place free of direct sunlight, like your pantry or a bread box.
• To keep them fresh longer, consider storing them in a sealed plastic bag or airtight container.
• For longer-term storage, freeze the scones in a freezer-safe bag or container. Don't forget to label with the date!
• To thaw frozen scones, leave them at room temperature for a few hours or in the refrigerator overnight. For a 'fresh baked' feel, slightly warm them in the oven or toaster oven.
