Keep or Toss: 2 year old 88% Dark choc bar

Answered on August 19, 2014

In case it matters, it's the Endangered Species Brand and the packaging is paper/folded so I don't think it's particularly air-tight.

BTW, there's no date stamp on the bar so I don't know exactly how old it is.

Does the lack of a date stamp mean it lasts forever (or at least as long as a Twinkie :-)

Thanks, Mike

The fats in cacao are not prone to oxidation.

I might still eat it, but chocolate (especially 88%) would never last that long in my home. I think the major thing to be concerned about is that the cacao butter may have become rancid. Taste it and see. The other thing that occurs in chocolate is bloom, those whitish spots on the surface caused by oil or sugar separation. Bloom may effect taste and texture but is apparently not harmful (I think that may only be true for sugar bloom.) You can read more about this here.
