Store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and changing temperatures. The bottom of a closet or the basement is ideal. Avoid heating vents, baseboard heaters, and fireplaces unless you want to make S’mores. Don’t store near anything with a strong smell – chocolate absorbs odors very easily.
Resist the call of the refrigerator. Moisture from the fridge will damage your paper wrappers, and when returning to room temperature condensation may develop on the chocolate. The only thing worse than melted chocolate is wet chocolate.
The freezer? No. Just… no. Avoid the freezer at all costs.
What is the shelf life?
Provided the original packaging is not opened, your chocolate bars will stay fresh for at least a year if stored properly. Our chocolate stock is replenished monthly.
Help, they’re melting!
If your chocolate bars are exposed to heat and start to soften, don’t panic. Move the entire box to a cooler place and leave them until the chocolate is firm again. The best thing you can do is find them a cool, dark home and leave them alone – they won’t mind, we promise!
Occasionally, despite storing your chocolate like a pro it might develop what’s known as “bloom”. This chalky whitening on the surface is a result of changes in temperature. Though it looks odd, it’s harmless and your chocolate will still be safe and delicious to eat.
