Things to know when your candy arrives:
- Keep in a cool (below 68 degrees F.) dry place.
- Keep away from heat (radiators, air vents).
- Keep away from STRONG odors (very important). Chocolate will pick up the taste of odors (cigarette smoke, cheeses). If you place chocolate in a leather handbag it will taste like that leather. Candy will absorb any odors that it is exposed to.
- Keep away from damp or wet area (basements, laundry rooms).
- Cocoa butter in chocolate melts at approximately 98 degrees F. If you eat or drink something that is very cold, then eat chocolate, it will change the taste of the chocolate.
- To store our chocolates for an extended period of time, wrap entire box in plastic wrap, keep at 50 degrees F.and at or below 50% relative humidity. Before serving remove the candy from the cold area and keep it wrapped at least 24 hours in an area that is approximately 70 degrees F. The reason is if you take candy that is 50 degrees and expose it to a room that is 70 degrees then condensation will occur (a white film will appear on the chocolate). It is ok to eat but it will lose its attractive appearance.
- Lerro's chocolates are best served when the candy is at room temperature. Our chewy pieces, caramels, nougat, peanut chews, etc. are made to have the right texture at 70 degrees F.
Follow these rules and you will have a pleasurable experience eating Lerro's candy.
