I made some lollipops for a baby shower, forgot them at home. Been sitting in the house for a while, outside of the fridge. Wondering how long they would last? Do they last longer if they are in the fridge?
They last a long time, just like a regular candy bar or something.
they will last for quite a while, but you have to be careful some times they can pick up flavors from things around them. and I have also had the chocolate bloom.( even though it is not real chocolate, It had some white marks all over it ) just make sure they are sealed really well.
Actually, it's best if they aren't stored in the refrigerator. Storing them there will cause them to bloom.
The best thing to do is keep them in a cool, dark place, like a cabinet or pantry.. Some place the sun doesn't shine often. Keep them wrapped in tin foil, if possible, or an air tight container. They will last quite a long time there. I think most chocolate is good for up to a year if stored this way.
Hope this helps.

what? onion or garlic or liver flavored chocolate isn't good?
I can just see that happening too, especially after I make spaghetti. My whole house smells like garlic for days, so I can only imagine what leftovers in the fridge would do to the sweets!
