Hey Everyone,

Does anyone know how long candy melts are good for? I couldn't find an expiry date on the bag.

Is there a way to tell if they have gone bad?

Here's what I found when I googled....

How to check the expiration date of Wilton candy melts:

To the left of the Wilton Candy Melts logo is a stamped series of numbers. The top line of numbers is what youre looking for. The first # is the month, the second # is the day, and the third & fourth #'s are the last 2 digits of the year. For example: 7510BH8 would be July 5, 2010.

I just had a look at my bags of Candy melts and for 2 of them the date makes sense but for the other 6 it doesnt.
One of my old bag has 0006WHxxxx, and one of my new bags has 9328WH75xxx.

Any ideas?

Last weekend I went to use an "older" bag of candymelts and they smelled bad and had a whitish powder on them. I can't remember when I got them but it was within the last 9 months. Of course I threw them away!
