Old halloween candy

So, what's the general consensus on eating really old halloween candy.

Now see, i'm a health conscious person, i wouldn't eat something in my fridge that was past it's use by date.

However, me and a friend (thatguycraig - i just got him to join the forums recently) are drawing up halloween plans for this years haunt, and we stumbled across a bag of supplies i'd bought in NJ 3 halloween's ago.

Big bags of miniatures, bags of candy corn, everything that would make a TOT'ers night!

I totally forgot i had this stuff, and it's now 3 years old, but i'm not gonna lie, we started tucking in.

Safe? Maybe not?

Fun, hell yeah.

Anyone else disregarded the normal food rules when it comes to halloween candy?

any hard candy will last for YEARS and be ok... See Chiclets as an example of that! (I actually found some that were I kid you not 5 years old a couple weeks ago, and had someone "test" them, and they said they tasted like chiclets!).... I think if Chocolate is sealed and kept in a cool dry place it'll be ok for 2-3 years before going bad... once it hits the air though, you better plan on eating it.... Most candy has preservatives in it, and unless you found raisins, I think you may be ok in your candy find!

PS... I think there is someone on the forum who is craving some candy corn, so if you still have that, you might want to share that with them!!!
