Frequently Asked Questions

Ask Us About Your Pudding

​​

What Does The “best By” Date Mean?

Every tub of Kozy Shack® Pudding is stamped with a Best By Date. However, we find that our delicious pudding rarely ever sees that date. People are reaching for Kozy Shack® Pudding to escape to their Inner Kozy every chance they get. So, while we guarantee quality ‘til the Best By date, good luck ever seeing it.


How Do I Store And Serve Pudding?

All our pudding is stamped with a Best By date, although most pudding enthusiasts keep escaping to their Inner Kozy and finish a tub long before that day comes. Until then, store your pudding in the refrigerator. If you’re planning an Inner Kozy escape later, we recommend using a clean spoon to scoop out each delicious bite into a separate bowl. The rest should go back in the fridge and be eaten within a few days. If you really want to experience Inner Kozy comfort, consider pairing it with cookies, pound cake, fresh fruit, chocolate sauce or whipped cream. The comfort is endless!


Can Kozy Shack® Products Be Frozen?

We do not recommend freezing any of our products. Besides, they’re too delicious to save for later.


Once The Container Is Opened, How Long Do I Have To Finish It?

Once the container is opened, the comfort begins and good memories dance into your soul. Usually, you’ll come back for more Inner Kozy in the next few days, which is about how long a tub lasts. Since we use no artificial preservatives, for the best quality, pudding should be enjoyed before the Best By date. Since storage and handling conditions vary, once the package is open, it is best to eat it within a few days. Pudding that looks, smells or tastes off should always be discarded.


Are Kozy Shack® Products Gluten-free?

Yes, all Kozy Shack® products are “gluten-free” and have undergone an extensive evaluation of ingredients and manufacturing processes to ensure compliance with the FDA threshold of < 20 ppm gluten.


Are The Milk And Eggs Used In Kozy Shack® Puddings And Flans Cooked?

The milk and eggs used are pasteurized before we make our delicious pudding. In addition, during the cooking process, the pudding mixture is heated to temperatures that ensure product safety. We recommend checking to be sure the package seal is intact and the product has not passed its Best By date before eating it.


What Is The Kozy Shack® Pudding Story?

Kozy Shack® Pudding has grown from a neighborhood favorite to the #1 branded rice and tapioca pudding in the US and Canada. The story began in 1967 when bread deliveryman Vincent Gruppuso decided Cozy Shack Deli rice pudding was the best thing since sliced bread and bought the recipe.
