WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF MY CHOCOLATE?
The shelf life is ideally 10-14 days. These are to be savored and not stashed. The fresher the chocolate, the more delicious it will be!
One consideration, when packaged together certain flavors like to lend their essence to those around them. Peppermint Patties and anything Mocha are the worst; they will flavor those around them. Additionally, chocolates with certain oils, like lemon and orange oil will fade over time.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY CHOCOLATE?
Keep your chocolates in a cool, dry place, and away from strong scents. Refrigeration isn’t necessary and will not extend the shelf life. When you place chocolate in the refrigerator, it begins to condensate and encourages the sugar to bloom on the surface of the chocolate, making it white-ish and spotty, also giving it a mealy, grainy texture. Chocolate is most comfortable at 65 to 68 degrees.
I HAVE ALLERGIES. CAN I STILL EAT YOUR CHOCOLATE?
Although dark chocolate is naturally dairty free, we use fresh cream in our truffles; cream, half & half and butter in our caramel; and butter in our toffee and peppermint patties. That being said, we have many vegan/dairy-free chocolates options! When you look through our gallery of chocolates we have noted whether they are vegan/dairy-free.
