We’re giving out individually wrapped squares of Ghirardelli chocolates as favors and have four months until the wedding. Right now I have the chance to get the chocolate at a great price including some amazing flavors (like the dark chocolate and raspberry that matches our wedding cake) that are limited edition and going away soon.
Do you think if I buy the chocolate now it will still be good for the wedding? Will it get that white film or worse go bad?

it should be fine, as long as it’s stored in a cool dry place away from sunlight it should get bloom. Most chocolate has an expiry date on it – i’d check that

The Ghiradelli website has a “Chocolate Q&A” that may help you. I think four months will be fine as long as you store it properly.

I’ve heard before that milk chocolate is good for one year, dark chocolate is good for three.
I just opened a bag of Lindt truffles that I received last May (forgot all about them!) and they still taste delicious.

I think as long as you store it properly it can last for several months, however, not giving in to the temptation to eat it is much harder lol.

I agree with Housebee. Chocolate in my house would be eaten way earlier than it would go bad. I got discounted candy on February 15th, to put in the favor bags, for my daughter’s bridal shower in April. After putting them in the bags, I took them to my Mom’s. Immediately! She doesn’t eat chocolate.
I remember buying Halloween candy early, when it was on sale, and hubby eating it all by the 3rd week in October.

housebee: PABride: Haha! I think I could exercise the self-control (sure, no problem, right?), but keeping them away from my Fiance might be a whole other matter!
