- Helpful Hints: Tips for Keeping Your Chocolate
at Its Best!
Our delicious chocolates are delicate and require proper
care to keep their exceptional taste and appearance.
- Keep the chocolate in a cool, dry place. The ideal storage
location is around 65 degrees Fahrenheit and 50% humidity. A range of approximately
10% in either direction will not have any adverse effect. The normal air
conditioned room provides adequate protection.
- Do not store near heat or in direct sunlight. The light
will fade the color and the elevated temperature will cause tackiness and
Chocolate and moisture do not mix. High humidity or moisture
may cause a white haze or spots on the surface of the chocolate. (This is
known as "moisture bloom".) The chocolate will not look as appetizing,
but it will generally be just as tasty.
In general, solid chocolate which is not mixed with other
products will have a shelf life of at least six to twelve months or longer,
depending on the environmental storage conditions. When mixed with other
products (nuts, cream, etc.) the shelf life will be reduced.
