What is BBD ?
An expiration date? Or Best Before Date? What is it?
First of all, there is no best-before date on confectionery, but rather a best-before date (BBD).
HERE THE EXPLANATIONS OF THE GENERAL DIRECTORATE OF COMPETITION, CONSUMPTION AND REPRESSION OF FRAUD
The BBD is an indication of the manufacturer that allows him to guarantee all the gustative or nutritional qualities if the candy is consumed before the indicated date. Once this date has passed, it is not forbidden to sell the product, nor dangerous to consume it. For example, in the case of jellies, it can be noticed that the candy can be less soft, drier or less flavored with time.
Then, as we receive merchandise every day, and as we have nearly 600 references in our catalog (and this number keeps growing), it is impossible for us to modify each card each time a pallet ends and we start a new one. To reassure you, you should know that the manufacturers have a 2 or 3 year shelf life and that we order each reference from one to 10 times a year. And in the case where a candy would not sell as we would have wished and that the BBD approaches (with less than 4 months, on average), we hasten to sell the product, and we announce it on the site.
