With 8 days until Hanukkah, 18 days until Christmas, 24
Chocolate Covered Popcorn has a shelf life of two months.
days until New Years, and Kwanzaa in between, many are wondering when to get gifts. This question often arises when said gifts are edible, and unfortunately perishable, such as Chocolate. But if you’re wondering if the Chocolate Covered Popcorn under the tree will go stale before you have a chance to open it, you may be surprised.
Pure chocolate on its own tends to last around a year. (Yes, that’s right, a whole year!) So unless you’re already stocking up for next year’s holiday season, your gift of deliciousness should be fine. Typically, items that are covered in chocolate have shorter shelf lives than the chocolate itself. The chocolate, however, does help protect from the outside environment; because of this, we have items in the store that are good anytime between a few days to a few months. Popcorn, for example, lasts two months.
Seems that the only reason it won’t make it to Christmas is if you eat it first. Ask one of our Chocolatiers about the shelf life of your presents to make sure you get the perfect gift.
