Chocolate Candy Shelf Life
by Toni Tsai
What is the chocolate candy shelf life, or how long can you keep chocolate candy?
We had box of chocolate candy for a year. Is it still good to eat?
Yes, chocolate candy has a long shelf life. You can eat it after a year without worrying about it being 'off' or something.
The problem you may have is that it may not taste as 'fresh' as it would have, depending on the type of chocolate candy you are referring to.
Also, if it hasn't been stored at a constant stable temperature it may look discolored (white or grayish 'bloom'). It is still edible, it just doesn't look as nice.
So, if you are wanting to eat it yourself, go for it. If it's something you received last year and want to 're-gift' it's hard to say what condition it is in without opening the box and checking it out.
All the best,
