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.
