Earlier this week, we told you all about the steps we take to make sure you get your special-occasion sweets delivered safe and sound. But what about after they arrive? Storing your goodies correctly will keep them fresh and delicious for your favors or candy buffet on your big day!
Though we pride ourselves on speedy shipping, itâ€™s a good idea to schedule your candy delivery for two to four weeks before your wedding or party. After you order your products, you can use our special order tracker to see where the shipment is at any time. Cool, huh? If you can, schedule your delivery for a day or time when you know youâ€™ll be home, and avoid shipping candy and chocolate over weekends to make sure they get to you as quickly as possible.
Once your special order arrives, itâ€™s easy to take care of it! Keep all of the products in their sealed NutsOnline pouches until itâ€™s time to make your favors or assemble your candy buffet. If your favors are made of material that exposes the candy to open air, such as mesh, make sure to package the assembled product in airtight containers until use.
Nuts and dried fruit should generally be stored in the refrigerator. Candy and chocolate, on the other hand, need to be kept in a cool, dry spot that is between 59-63 degrees Fahrenheit and has a relative humidity of less than 50 percent.Â Keeping chocolate in the fridge or freezer can promote â€œblooming,â€ which is a whitish discoloration on the surface of the candy. You donâ€™t want that, so opt for a kitchen pantry or cupboard instead!
In addition to following these general guidelines, we offer specific instructions for storing each of our products in the lower left corner of the product pages. Scope out the directions for each of your items to ensure that youâ€™re taking every precaution to keep them fresh.
Of course, if you have any questions about storing your treats, just ask us! Weâ€™re available via email at CustomerService@NutsOnline.com or phone at 800-558-6887. You can also reach us via Twitter @Nuts_Online or on our Facebook page.
