As part of Dare's Made Better promise, we use ingredients like real chocolate in our food. Real chocolate is very delicate and if not stored properly, a white/tan coating, called blooming, can occur. To put your mind at ease, blooming is safe to eat as it's simply the separation and rising of the cocoa butter to the surface of the product. To avoid bloom, you should always store your real chocolate products in a cool dark place between 64°F and 68°F.
At Dare, there are several great gelatin-free options in our candy, cookie, and cracker portfolios. For specifics on each product, please refer to the product page on the Dare website. For Dare products that do contain gelatin, the gelatin is derived from pork.
At Dare, we have many kosher-certified options, which can be identified by the symbol on the pack. To check if a specific product is certified, please visit the Made Better facts section on the product page on the Dare website.
We are not required to put a Best Before Date on our products because they have a longer shelf life than three months. If a Best Before Date is shown, then it follows the legal requirement of: In the USA: YYYY MM DD In CANADA: Year, Month, Day with the month spelled out. E.g. 2021 May 26. If “Best Before” is not shown on the label, then the code date follows the following format YY MM DD e.g. 21 12 31
The Best Before Date or code date on the label shows the date by which the product will deliver consumer satisfaction with quality. The product does not become unsafe to eat after this date; therefore, it becomes a consumer decision to consume the product of a specific quality.
