4. What is the white film all over my chocolate and is it safe to eat?
Though the white film on chocolate is often mistaken for mold, it is actually a harmless substance known as bloom. Bloom is the result of the butter fat in the candy coming to the surface of the chocolate due to a temperature shock. The chocolate may not look as nice, but is safe to eat and tastes just as good.To prevent bloom, it is important not to expose chocolate to wide fluctuations in temperature.
5. What is the best way to store my chocolate?
Chocolate is best when stored in a cool, dry place however, it is not a good idea to store your chocolate in the freezer as it can cause the chocolate to turn white due to temperature shock.

Our products are manufactured in a facility that processes nuts.
