    Ok so i have a question. How long can i store candy that has been vacum sealed? Like snickers,m&m's skittles things like this. in the individual packs. I ended up with 38 pounds of candy from my kids trick or treating.:eek: I think it would be good for trading. everyone has a sweet tooth.

    Just keep the temperatures even (cool) and chocolate will last a fairly long time. Hard-candy without chocolate or milk as a main ingredient will last virtually forever.

    I've hosted many Halloween events. Sometimes I put the goodies bags with other items and forgot them. Snickers and other bars last that long.;)

    My husband brought me a lot of MRE's from the Army and they contained M&M's...we all know how long MRE's last. But vaccum sealed they should last for several years more.

    I just rediscovered Pixy Stix.

    My gosh, that's nothing but sugar and minor flavoring. They go down easy and right into the blood stream. I really, really hope I'm not diabetic.

    I need to start exploring candy!
