Storing Candy in Food Storage

Candy may not be the most vital necessity but comfort food may feel like it during hard times. If you have left-over Halloween candy, your children are willing to donate some of their trick-or-treat hoard, or you’re considering purchasing discounted Halloween candy, now may be the time to add sweets to your food storage. I add candy to my food storage a couple times a year, usually around holidays or the summer (smores season) when Hershey bars go on sale. I keep these goodies in a 5-gallon bucket with a screw-on lid. The bucket is labeled SWEETS. I keep miscellaneous items in the Sweets Bucket such as bags of brown sugar, agave, xylitol, chocolate chips, almond bark, and candy. The candy gets used throughout the year for holidays, baking, or for movie night. When it gets used, I replace it the next time it’s on clearance so that I’m always prepared and never paying full price.

I’ve been considering storing candy for longer than six months. This instigated me researching the best storing practices for candy. Below are three articles with great tips on how to store candy properly.
