Expiration & Storage Tips
When does snickers candy bar expire?
A Snickers candy bar typically has a long shelf life because it's a processed food with a high sugar content. Stored at room temperature in its unopened original packaging, it can last up to 12 months. The exact duration may vary based on the manufacture date printed on the package, so it's always a good idea to check. Once opened, Snickers bars remain fresh for about two weeks, if stored properly in a cool, dry place. Freezing is not generally recommended for Snickers bars, as it may alter the texture without significantly extending the shelf life.
How do you tell if snickers candy bar is bad?
If not stored properly or if past its printed expiration date, a Snickers bar can go bad. To identify a spoiled Snickers candy bar, you can look for a few key signs. If the chocolate coating has developed a white, powdery appearance, it's not necessarily spoiled, but has experienced 'chocolate bloom' due to temperature changes. While it's safe to eat, the taste and texture may not be as good. If the nougat, caramel, or peanuts have a rancid or off smell, or if there's visible mold, discard it immediately. Always go by the rule 'when in doubt, throw it out'.
Tips for storing snickers candy bar to extend shelf life
• Store unopened Snickers bars in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. The pantry is a great place. They don't necessarily need to be kept in the fridge. • Once opened, wrap the leftover candy in a piece of foil or plastic cling wrap. Then place it in an airtight container and keep in a cool, dry place to retain its optimal taste and texture. • If you live in a hot climate, you might find that your Snickers bar becomes a bit too soft. Pop it in the fridge for 15 minutes before eating for a pleasant, slightly firm texture. • Avoid subjecting your Snickers bars to extreme temperature swings, as this can result in 'chocolate bloom'. While it's safe to eat, it can adversely affect the taste and texture of the chocolate.
