Oops. We've been working so hard to get orders out, that we must have subconsciously wanted to reverse time. It seems our "Best By" date stamp on some products lost a year and has "051917" or "052017" instead of "051918" and "052018". We apologize for our yule-stake and can assure you that the toffee you have is fresh and not a year old! Thank you for understanding.
