I think so... I once found worms eating my packaged chocolate bar. Not sure how the suckers got in there, but there was a few dozen of them.

Eventually all food products will go bad. Dark chocolate, however, is one of the longest lasting and most stable foods you can buy. Dark chocolate has a shelf life of about 18 months. If held properly, chocolate can last for years. The best way to store a chocolate bar is in a cool, dry place where it will not come in contact with moisture or heat. There is usually no need to refrigerate dark chocolate that you will use within 8 months to a year of purchase. If you live in a very hot or humid area and must refrigerate your chocolate, ppl suggest that you wrap it tightly in an extra layer of plastic wrap to help keep the aroma and flavor somewhat locked in. My grandmother always told me never freeze chocolate, she never explained why though.
