    Cheese in a care package

    Advertisements
    So being from Wisconsin my DF wants the taste of home and some good Wisconsin cheese. I bought a few small blocks but now my dilema is shipping it. Any suggestions? They are vaccuum sealed so they won't spoil but in going to Iraq I don't want them to melt either. Anyone shipped it before, I need some suggestions.

    But how did you pack it? I have packing peanuts which I think will help, but do you need ice packs in there? Its colby cheese so its not wax coated, but it is vaccuum sealed.

    Just stick it in the box with everything else your going to send... nothing special needed unless you want to put it in a zip lock just in case...

    Whatever you do, don't use ice packs... they will go warm before they leave the post office and you risk ruining your box and other peoples mail

    I have also chipped cheese and never had an issue. I didn't pack it any special way. I always use news paper or something to keep things from moving around. I did the same with that. As far as it melting. You can't prevent melting. If its going to its going to.
