That’s a really thoughtful idea… the only thing that comes to mind is Velveeta, but I’m not sure if that counts as real cheese?

A quick google search led me to Hickory Farms, which apparently has cheese that will keep unrefrigerated until opened. Maybe you could look into that? http://www.hickoryfarms.com/

Hey, they make cream cheese in the can, like cheese whiz style. What about that?! I don’t kjnow about those laughing cows….i’ve always seen them in refrigerated cases =

You could make puppy chow with the chex mix. Yum. And those powdered drink mixes (powerade makes some) are really popular, too.

Graham crackers taste nommy with cream cheese

At our Trader Joe’s, the Laughing Cow is kept on the (unrefrigerated) shelf with the crackers! 🙂

Cream cheese and graham crackers are delish! Also–canned frosting. Seriously. It was DH’s “birthday cake” one year when they cut a bunch of mail funding overseas and you could only send non-perishables b/c items could sit in holding for a month! So chocolate canned frosting and grahams it was–he liked ’em, too! 

Harry & David will also mail stuff to APO addresses. In fact, a LOT of companies do. And sometimes you get a discount if you call their customer service line and inquire about mailing to a dear loved one overseas.

Watch your chocolates–you have to be careful what you mail in what months over there. I’ve mailed chocolate (wrapped in a TON of plastic baggies) and figured if it melted, he could chill it down and break chunks off, lol. Just wrap it like an insane maniac.
