Based on my experience, quality chocolates can be stored for up to 8 weeks in a cool – but not cold – low-humidity location. The chocolate’s centers are not likely to keep for longer than the 8 weeks, and in some cases (like a fondant center) might not keep longer than 4 weeks depending on the conditions they’re stored in and how well the centers were made.

When you do purchase your chocoalte be sure, be sure to store it in a cool, dark, low-humidity location. NOT the refridgerator – that’s much too cold and the chocolate risks absorbing the funky tastes that linger in the air in a fridge.

I’m not familiar with the Lindor brand, but it may be possible that one of their customer service reps can advise you on the shelf life of their product.

We bought our candy about 3 months before oure wedding – some of it chocolate – and didn’t have any problems. We kept it all in an air tight container and covered with linens to keep any light from touching it (since the container was clear). However, we didn’t have an truffle like candy, so I’m not sure if they differ much. I’ve heard candy has a shelf life of 6 months and the Tootsie rolls I bought on sale after Halloween were still fresh when we used them the following May.
