They are good frozen for 6 months, in the fridge for 1 month and on the go for a week. The are totally fresh and raw with no preservatives so you can't leave them out. I let mine sit out for about 10-15 minutes before I ate it. As you can see in the pic - you eat it + drink a full glass = a full bowl of oatmeal. I was honestly impressed with how well it filled me up and held me over. I can eat....A LOT, so I was happy to see it kept me full. I was also impressed it was Vegan (not that I am a Vegan, but that everyone can eat it). The taste was a little different, I won't lie. Don't expect a sweet taste, but they are good. It's good, clean, healthy food. There are also Warrior Meals, which have added Whey protein. They sell them in packs of 10 for $39.99 on their website – which averages to about $4 a meal.
