In general, the colder wrapped candy is kept, the longer it will keep.
Refrigerated candy stays fresh for several months. Frozen candy will stay fresh
indefinitely. When thawing, remove frozen candy from wrapper and re-wrap in plastic
wrap before thawing to prevent candy from developing any taste or odors picked up
by the wrapper.
