Rock candy may become sticky if exposed to sunlight or heat. It can also be affected by moisture in the air, so here are some simple points to follow to ensure that your candy stays fresh:
●Always store your rock candy in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight or heat.
●Do not store in the refrigerator.
●Avoid putting candy in a car boot in summer as the temperature inside may be too hot.
●Avoid opening any jars or bags of rock candy until they are to be consumed. If your candy is packaged in 1kg bulk bags, they are best stored flat in a single layer in a cool dry area.
●If you are repackaging your rock candy, do so in small amounts (one bag at a time) in a cool dry area.
●Always wear latex gloves and use a scoop when repackaging rock candy. Avoid touching the candy to be hygienic, also as moisture from your hands may cause the candy to become sticky.
●Ensure your rock candy is kept airtight and packaged in something with a good seal (jars with a sealed lid, sealed bags, etc).
●If you do need to package your candy in boxes or items that are not sealed airtight, we recommend placing the packaged items inside a large sealable tub or container with a lid until they are to be consumed. In this case, try to package the candy as close to the event date as possible.
●If your candy is packaged in Designer Candy small sealed bags, these can also be placed inside large sealable tubs if they need to be stored for a reasonable time before they are consumed. The same applies for lollipops – store inside a large sealed container to keep them fresher for longer.
★Ingredients:Sugar, water, glucose, food acid (330), flavours, and colours 102, 110, 122, 123, 133,155,171. We use only the highest quality Australian ingredients and flavours to provide you with the best tasting premium candy. All candy products are nut free, gelatin free, dairy free, soy free, and fat free. They may contain traces of gluten & bees wax.
For Confetti Lollipops, please request an ingredient list, as the ingredients of the edible confetti added will differ from the ingredients listed above.
★Best Before Date: The “Best Before” date should be 12 months from delivery date for candy, or 6 months from delivery date for lollipops. Our products are all made to order, so they will be fresh on delivery. The candy will never actually “go off” as it’s just sugar, but after this time the colours can fade and texture can go soft. We recommend having your candy or lollipops delivered 2 – 4 weeks before your event date so it’s at its freshest.
