How long will chocolate candy remain edible?

Candy is a lump of edible substances comprised mostly of sugar. -- The chemical energy in the sugar can be released by your body's metabolism if you put the candy inside. -- If, instead of that, you put the candy on a high shelf, then it has potential energy. -- Alternatively, if you throw or drop the candy, then as long as it's moving, it has kinetic energy.
Candy (or lollies and chocolate as it may be called elsewhere), like almost any food, is not bad as long as it is eaten in moderation.

Most teens, if exposed to sugar earlier in life, can handle candy without getting hyper as they have a tolerance to it.
Chocolate candy will stay good roughly 10 to 12 months. There may be some separation of the cocoa butter, resulting in white/gray spots or streaks before then but that is not a problem.
