My cousin deployed last week. I have ideas for non food things (the wipes, socks, etc), but I'm wondering if there's anything food-wise that travels well enough that it can be sent there in August without it melting or falling apart?Answer Question

Cake in a Jar would be good for a birthday or special occasion. When my husband was in Iraq, I sent him his favorite chips but I put the bag in a plastic container which was a double bonus because he was needing some containers. I also sent beef jerky, ramen noodles in a cup, nuts, single serve mac and cheese, etc.

When our son was deployed till last March we were advised to stick with the commercially prepared foods.We sent things like the Oreos in individual packages. He preferred the large container of wipes with a lot of ziplocks.Also we found out with an APO address the pre priced boxes at the post office don't have any weight limit.It was amazing what we could get taped into a box..If possible pick up the custom forms earlier.Send our best to him.
