Chocolates are best stored between 16 to 18 degrees celsius.
The best humidity range to store our chocolates would be 50-60%. If you have access to a wine chiller, the temperature and humidity would generally be more suitable than a regular fridge.
A combination of factors such as temperature, humidity, handling, would also affect how long your chocolates would stay fresh and delicious. While chocolates may not “expire”, due to improper handling or an unsuitable way of storing chocolates, the chocolates may not be suitable for consumption.
Chocolate is best enjoyed when consumed prior to the best before date as the chocolates and its ingredients should be in the best possible state. However, a combination of factors such as temperature, humidity, handling, would also affect how long your chocolates would stay fresh and delicious.
We recommend that you check how the chocolate looks, smells, or even tastes (if safe to do so) before making your own decision on whether they can still be eaten.
