How can I package some toffees and Brittles for sale?

I want to start selling my toffee and brittle out of my family store. How do I package them? Is there a way to package them so they wont stick together after a while; like a special paper to use? What is the shelf life of the candy? And how can I calculate the calories in my candy? Should I buy a food scale too? What are some nice ideas to make my candy look nice in the package? :)

It would be great if all my questions got answered...Thank you! Please be nice! :)

    How can I package some toffees and Brittles for sale?

    I want to start selling my toffee and brittle out of my family store.

    Where are you making the toffee and brittle? Are you licensed to make this out of your home or are you using a commercial kitchen facility?

    How do I package them?

    Toffee and Brittle are best packaged in an air tight tin can that is FDA approved, if you are in the U.S. You can also use an airtight box but you should wrap the candies in wax or parchment wedges just larger than the candy pieces. I can't tell you move without asking about the size of the candy wedges.

    Is there a way to package them so they wont stick together after a while; like a special paper to use?

    Place wax paper sheets or parchment paper sheets inbetween each piece of candy.

    What is the shelf life of the candy?

    Contact your local state Extension Service for information on the shelf life of food products, but it should last a few weeks 2-3 maybe, not sure however.

    And how can I calculate the calories in my candy?

    Insert the recipe ingredients using this link and you will be able to print out a nutrional label

    Should I buy a food scale too? Yes, you want all of the packages of candy to weigh the same.

    What are some nice ideas to make my candy look nice in the package?

    Use inexpensive containers and a fancy label or ribbon, visit http://www.myownlabels.com/food/
