It is correct but a bit awkward.


Don't, a contraction, requires an apostrophe between the "n" and the "t". Dont is not a word in the English corpus.


The sentence would flow better if reworded -- Don't eat that candy bar before we check out.


What I don't know is whether that is what you meant to say.
