How should I store chocolates?
Chocolate should be stored in a cool, dry place away from strong aromas and temperature variations. You should never store your chocolate in the fridge, as that will cause blooming (condensation on the surface, drawing sugar crystals out of the chocolate).
Similarly if the chocolate is allowed to get too warm, cocoa butter will come to the surface. If possible, keep your chocolate wrapped and store it between 16C and 22C, but for most purposes room temperature is fine.
You should also keep your chocolate away from sunlight and other bright lights, and ideally in a sealed environment (ziplock bag, Tupperware box,etc..)
The shelf life of our bars range from 3 months to 12 months , you will see Best Before Date at the back of the bar.
