I went to Costco tonight. (Blog coming up.)
These Christmas candies are not available after holiday season. So, I had to stock them up.
Chocolates of the World expires on June 1, 2011. So, I put one jug in the freezer and the second jug in the refrigerator. This way, I will enjoy fresh chocolate until the next holiday season. I’ll make the cookies to last several months. I couldn’t find experation date on the cookies. I may have to buy a few more cans of cookies. My guests love those cookies. They eat ’em up.
I am not rich. I am not trying to show off how much money I spend on candy. $80.00 for candy sounds extreme, but they will last long time. If you look at the entire year, I definitely spend less money on candy than most people. I don’t even drink soda too often (to save money).
I would like to stress that I am not trying to show off. Mm… I guess I am showing off my self control. Because, I can look at the mountain of candies and not go crazy.
* The chocolates will last 12 months – I guarantee you that.
Please excuse my bad photography, I took the short cut (the easy way)
This is what I did last year. I bought 4 jugs of Chocolates of the World and put "opening dates" on them. I still haven’t finished the last jug.
