Storing Gummi Candies to Avoid Stale, Hard Pieces

Posted by Candy Lady on 2/28/2014
Gummy candy's allure is its texture, which is soft and chewy. It should give your teeth a pleasant workout with a light and fruity taste. Once gummies start to go stale, though, they become tough, hard and tasteless. It is possible to keep the candy fresh if you follow a few simple steps.

To keep your gummies soft, store them in a cool, dry area, like a pantry shelf. Once you have opened the package, keep air contact to a minimum. Do not put them in a large container. Air surrounds them and dries them out. Keep them in a sturdy, sealed plastic bag. Before you close it up, squeeze any extra air out of the bag. Gently press down on the bag, and push the air up and out of the opening. Seal it securely. The candy can stay fresh for up to six months on the shelf if you keep the air away. High temperatures reduce the quality of the candy, so if the weather is very warm, put the gummi candy in the refrigerator or freezer. Follow the same rules to remove air, and the candy stays fresh for six months in the refrigerator and up to a year in the freezer.

When you open a package of gummi candy for the first time, you have chewy goodness. If there are leftovers, take a little time to store them properly, and you keep them fresh long enough to finish them off. Remember that, while air is essential to you, it is not a friend to gummies.
