This Is When You Should Throw Out Valentine’s Candy

💕

According to Guilty Eats, the first thing to do before dealing with Valentine’s Day candy is the most obvious: check the expiration date. If you have a few months before the candy officially spoils, it doesn’t hurt to dig into it. However, if you throw the box away or can’t find the date on the packaging, Guilty Eats does recommend that you keep your treats in a cool, dry place for no more than 8 to 10 months. For chocolates and gum, you can keep them for up to 9 to 10 months, but lollipops and other hard candies can last up to a year if stored properly.

If you do plan to keep all of your Valentine’s candy, the question becomes what to do with all of it? There’s only so much candy talk to hearts and lollipops before you get tired of it. The Dairy Alliance has some ideas for using your leftover candies to prepare a variety of desserts, from hot chocolate and truffles to lava cakes.

Right now, Valentine’s Day is only a few days away, so you’ll have plenty of time to figure out what you want to do with your candy before the due date arrives.
