I opened a sleeve of strawberry filling for Father's Day. I sealed it up and put it in the fridge. What are the chances it's still good?

Still good. I think it lasts a month in the fridge, at least. Taste it, but I think you're fine.

I have sealed a couple of sleeves in food saver bags and 3 months later they were still good.

Along the same line--how long is it good at room temp. once it's inside the cake? Should it be refrigerated, as with other fruit fillings? That's what I've been doing in order to be on the safe side, but life would be easier if I didn't have to.

No it does not need refrigerated when it's in the cake. That's part of what makes these so great to use. The sleeved fillings is pretty much all I ever use and I never refrigerate my cakes.

I use sleeved fillings BECAUSE I can't refrigerate my cakes (fondant). They are great!

What do you find are the best flavors in the sleeve fillings?
I have only used raspberry and I always hesitate to use the other flavors.
I am very interested in Indy's opinion as she has used these alot.

The raspberry is the #1 flavor picked by my brides. Plus it's just so pretty when it's cut. The pineapple, lemon, strawberry are good. Apple Spice is good ... not too cinnamony, which really turns me off.

The creme ones fall a littler shorter on the "I like these" list. Bavarian creme, choc bavarian creme, etc. They seem to have a "tangy" bite to them. It could be just my taste preference. I recently tried the cream cheese filling, thinking it would be handier than making cream cheese BC, but I really don't like this one.

Stands with Indy. That stuff lasts forever, which is why I use it. Tastes fine, looks pretty, and doesn't need refrigeration. Per-fect!

Also agree that I use a lot of raspberry, followed by strawberry, but also a lot of the Bavarian Cream. Lemon is the least requested. The chocolate Bavarian is downright awful. I wound up throwing that out.

I used a meringue based bc that I mix with the sleeved fillings. 2 parts bc + 1 part filling = mousse like filling that doesn't have to be refrigerated.

Thanks everyone. So you guys leave the cheese fillings at room temp too? Huh. Good to know!
