You can freeze them (well I often freeze chile con carne with them in it and am alive )

they are fine to store in the fridge or freezer. They will last a week without being frozen in the fridge. The trick with them if you store them in the fridge is to ALWAYS use a clean spoon to take out a portion as they go off quicker if you don't. (As in you get some out now and then an hour later want to get some more. Use a clean spoon, not the same spoon you used an hour ago.)
