To let you know how long a product is good for, we have code dates on all of our packaging. For Baker's Chocolate products, the code date is located on the end flap of our chocolate boxes; for our bags of chocolate, they are located on the back panel of the bag.
Example: 06 JUN 16 or JUN 16 06
This would be interpreted as "Best When Used By" June 16th, 2006.
The product should be consumed by this date. We cannot assure freshness after that date because the taste and texture may have deteriorated.
