Full Answer

Keeping chocolate in an environment that is too warm allows the candy to melt and become mushy. In the summer, store chocolate in a dry place where the heat can't get in.

If you wish to freeze chocolate, do so carefully. Do not remove any plastic that the candy came with. When it comes to thawing, keep the temperature at a moderate level, as extreme temperature differences compromise the quality and can turn the candy gray. For best thawing, move the chocolate from the freezer to the fridge to keep it cool.

    Can you freeze popcorn?

    A:

    Both popped and unpopped popcorn can be frozen, but it can affect the quality. Unpopped popcorn that has been frozen does not pop as well, and frozen popped popcorn that was opened becomes dry and stale. Popped popcorn in an airtight sealed bag should freeze fine.
