Welcome to CC!

Well... they are not yummy to begin with - but not horrible either. If they have wire or toothpicks in them for support I'd caution anyone about eating them. As for keepsakes, I've had some for two years and they have not gone bad --fade slightly, yes. Once they dry, they really dry. Keep them under glass (if possible) and out of direct sunlight and they will last a long time.
