We’re doing popcorn, but I worried about freshness, too, so we’re buying pre-packaged goodies to ensure they’re optimally fresh.  Power to ya if you DO end up DIYing edible favors!

I was going to say – wow.  I’m impressed!  I guess the best way to find out is to try it.  Make some and keep it a week.  Try different containers and storage…   You’ll have a sure bet of what’s best after that!

just make sure they are individually sealed and i’m sure they would be fine a few days later. we get tins of carmel corn at the office from time to time and i would say don’t try to make it more than three days early and keep it sealed tight. try and do a test sealing up 3 different canisters/baggies and open one each day to see how many days they can go and still be delish! sounds like a great idea to me!

I wonder if an at-home vacuum food sealer would do the trick for you?  It could be that I’m just mildly obsessed with their fabulous gimmicky-ness (and no experience with them) but they do seem like they’d work!

@ SarahEm: I have one and love it, but the special bags you have to use for them aren’t exactly pretty and favor-worthy.  Not a bad idea, though, if that’s unimportant to someone!

We have a popcorn kiosk in our mall & they package all the popcorn in a plastic bag & put it in those metal tins (like a cookie tin). It works for them & the popcorn never tastes stale. Maybe its worth a try?
