For my favors, I am planning on filling these mini candy jars (http://www.beau-coup.com/personalized-mini-glass-candy-jars.htm) with M&Ms in our wedding colors. Well everything arrived in the mail this week, and I must have been too excited because without even thinking I opened the package of M&Ms and started filling the jars with them. A couple of jars in I realized that the M&Ms may not keep in the jars until my wedding (which is three months away on Sept. 12!). What do you guys think? Will they go stale (i.e. am I screwed?)

Are the jars sealed? M &Ms should hold fairly well if they are not exposed to air or overheated during the summer.

The jars have a metal screw-on lid, which we screwed on pretty tight after we filled them with M&Ms. So of course there was some exposure to air during the filling process, but hopefully not enough to make the candies go stale. I suppose I was just too overzealous of a bride this week

I would think they’d be fine with all the sugar & the chocolate coating. But maybe keep them in the fridge…..

They’ll sweat in the fridge and stick together I think. I bet you’ll be fine, but keep them in a cool, dry place.

Ok, my FI one year, got me a huge jar filled with green m&ms for Vday. It was weird bc they were selling bags in the store of the seperate colors and its my fav so he bought like 4-5 bags. Well I think we finished them later that fall and they were perfectly fine!
