How Long Does Pick and Mix Last?
Pick n Mix Storage and Expiration
You may be wondering: how long does pick and mix last? The shelf life of candies can vary depending on the type of candy, the storage conditions, and the packaging. Generally, most pick n mix candies can last for several months if they are stored properly in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
However, it’s important to note that some candies, such as gummy candies, may become harder or stale over time, while others, such as chocolates, may develop a white powdery coating called “bloom” due to changes in temperature and humidity. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the candies are unsafe to eat, but they may not be as fresh or enjoyable.
It’s always best to check the “best before” or “use by” date on the packaging and consume the candies before that date. If the candies have been stored properly and still look and smell good, they are likely safe to eat beyond the expiry date, but the quality may not be as good as when they were fresh. All of PickandMix.com’s sweets have best before dates between 12-18 months from the current date due to the high volume of stock we turnover every month. PickandMix.com perform weekly checks on all stock for their best before dates – in line with Food Standard Agency regulations.
