How Long Can You Keep The Candy, Article From Woman's Day

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Though they won't ever truly spoil (you can thank the generous amounts of sugar for that), sweets will lose their flavor and color.  Ellen  Bradley, food scientist at Rever City Food Group, LLC, in Portland, Oregon, reveals when to toss the goodies.
*Chocolate--Dark and milk varieties can last for 1 to 2 years.  Wrap it in foil and store in a dry, odor-free spot.
*Jellied Candies--Unwrapped in a candy dish, they'll last for 6 to9 months if kept away heat and light.  If wrapped, they're good for a full year.
*Hard Candy--Unless it's an Everlasting Gobstopper, you'll want to throw it out after 1 year of storage at room temperature.
*Candy Corn--Unopened packages will last up to 9 months, but stray corns only keep for 3 to 6 months.  Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
*Gum--Chewable for 6 to 9 months.  Keep packs in a cools, dry location to prevent the pieces from drying out.
*Caramel--Keep it covered and away from heat and it'll last for 6 to 9 months.  Or freeze it and save it for next year.
