They don't go bad in the sense that they could poison you but they can get that old/stale candy taste and/or get soft and wet. Taste a piece before using it as a dessert topping.
How can you tell if candy has gone bad?
According to Blakeslee, if a candy appears extremely sticky or has a grainy texture, then it has most likely expired due to temperature abuse and the crystallization of sugar. As a result, she said, it may develop an off flavor, have a change in color or turn moldy if it contains fruits or nuts.
