How should I store the chocolates?

Ideal storage environment:

Chocolate is considered a perishable product, it is very sensitive to temperature and humidity. We advise that it is kept out of direct sunlight and stored in a cool, dark, dry place with a temperature ranging between 15 to 20°C and humidity level that is under 55%.

If the storage environment where your Patchi chocolates are being kept experience fluctuating temperatures it may result in blooming, which is the appearance of a white colouration on the surface of the chocolate. These are simply the fats in the chocolate rising to the surface. Blooming chocolate is still safe to consume, however it may slightly alter the chocolate's taste or texture.
