I am going through my baking stuff for the holidays and I have a bag of premium candy melts. I see no use by date and the only numbers on the bag are Stock No 1911-455 and Bag No 1814-455. Does anyone know if these are useable or should just be thrown out? Thanks in advance.

I spoke to Wilton Customer Service - great help!!

Basically, Candy Melts are freshest 18 months after date of production. They are still okay afterward but may be harder to melt - still edible.

Here's how you read the production date stamped on the front of the bag (it's a 5 digit number): Say you have a bag stamped "53304" in front.

The 1st digit "5" is the production number.
The 2nd digit "3" is the year produced - in this case '2003'.
The last three digits "304" tell you the Julian Calendar date (in other words the year's day number, there are 365 days in a year) - this case is October 31st.

Dee, your bag probably has another number stamped on it that you can use to determine when it was produced.

I have printed this explanation and have it taped to the lid of the bin where I keep my Candy Melts.
