How Long Before Your Candies Expire?

Sweets will lose their flavor and color in due time, though they won't ever truly spoil. Thanks for the generous amounts of sugar in them :). But there are time when to toss these goodies too!

For Chocolates:

Dark and milk chocolates can last for 1-2 years. Wrap them in foil and store in a dry, odor-free place.

For Jellied Candies:

If kept away from heat and light, they will last for 6-9 months if left unwrapped in a candy dish. If wrapped, they are good to last for a year.

For Hard Candies:

They last after a year, unless its an Everlasting Gobstopper :).

For Candy Corn:

It will last up to 9 months in an unopened package, but stray corns only keep for 3-6 months. Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

For Gums:

Chewable for 6-9 months. Keep packs in a cool, dry location to prevent the pieces from drying out.

For Caramel:

Keep it covered and away from heat and it will last for 6-9 months. Or freeze it and save for next year.
