      Perfect. I haven't tried shipping the Baby Bels -- so take my worries with a considerable grain of salt. Looks like those with actual experience have spoken.

      The reason I went with babybel is because they were recommended by Roleigh Martin and they are easy to pack in the bear canister

      I'd be nervous about the BabyBell as the buckets can get hot and moist inside. I'd substitute a dry, hard cheese like a Peccorino Romano, Parmigiana Reggiano or of a hard Monterrey Jack. As others have said, tortillas and Nido should be fine.

      There has been lots of conversation around the topic of food.  I was reading a discussion on BPL site about Nido.   I assumed that Nido sent in resupply buckets will be ok.  I have never sent a resupply bucket 3 weeks out.  Can the members in this group reassure me that the nido will be ok?   This is my first thru hike so I am having anxiety around the resupply items. Especially with  babybel cheese, tortillas, and now nido!  I guess because this is my first time I want to get it right.  Part of me thinks that I need to stop second guessing myself.   I think this is a normal response three weeks before I start my hike.
