The shelf life (or half life) of candy canes

Have you ever had an extra box of candy canes after Christmas, and wondered if they’d keep for another year? Well, the answer is yes, and they’d still be good after 2 years. Look at the date on this box from 2012…. Good until Feb. 28, 2015!
However, if you live in the humid, deep-south, all bets are off. We know how nasty and sticky humidity makes candy.
So, in closing, hold onto those canes if you wish. Merry Christmas Eve, eve.

  1. Oh, this reminded me of high school, digging out the box of ornaments and sticking my hand into… a sticky, red and white gooey mess! I’ve learned to store leftover candy canes in a tin since then!
