How long does the popcorn stay fresh?

Most of the year we say that the popcorn stays fresh for around 5-7 days after purchase, in drier climates your popcorn will likely stay fresh for 7- 10 days . Hot and Humid summer months may accelerate the shelf life down to about 3 days. The best way to keep your popcorn fresh is to keep it in a cool dry place, sealed up very tightly. However, there is nothing wrong with eating fast and buying often! Please note that popcorn send in a tin from Candyland will have a 30 day shelf life is stored in a cool dry place.

Candyland was born in 1932 and was a short and sweet start- a partnership between two men which are responsible to starting this legendary St Paul favorite shop, things escalated quickly and ownership soon changed over to Arnie Kelsey. Over the years the company unfolded and Kelsey sold the business to a pair of high school sweethearts, Douglas & Brenda Lamb. Today in 2016 the Lamb couple has many family members running and working all 4 stores. They are happy to share the rest of the Candyland story with you, find out more about the history of Candyland!
