The only thing I can think of is to keep it in a cool dark dry place, not the freezer, it will get freezer burn. Make sure it is packaged well, if you have a vacum sealer, that would be best. Another thing is check out oriental trading co. they have tons of cool halloween candy, and it may be available year round, im not sure.

No matter what you do to keep it nice, i'd reccomend not telling anyone that it's from Halloween...

Candy is on sale often enough that saving it for several months just isn't that thrifty an idea.

It does usually take us months to eat all our Halloween candy and it doesnt go too bad...except for sometimes you end up with moldy chocolate, which is ick.

But i agree with lutheranchick that you should probably just wait and get candy later.

ok, well the candy comes in small sizes for halloween, another reason to buy it now, i posted this question for ways to save candy, thank you to the people who reely helped me think of ways to keep it... i dont want to order it from somewhere either (like oriental trading) only because of shipping, so thanks neway

         Lewis Black has a joke that all the candy corn ever made was made in 1911, so I don't think anyone at your party will notice/care that the candy has aged a bit.  Most "convenience" foods like mass-produced candy have so many preservatives in them that they don't so much have a shelf life as a half life.  I say stock up all you want now, put it in a plastic bucket with a lid and stash it in the back of the closet.  As long as it's unopened, it shouldn't go stale.

     If chocolate (real chocolate, anyway) gets too old, the cocoa butter leeches out and turns the chocolate ashy.  I was born and raised in the town where Dum Dums are made, and I can't remember them ever getting too old to eat.  Gummys might petrify, but I'm thinking you could just melt them in the oven and turn them into something else.
