I know that you can freeze cheese. We used to freeze it when I was on WIC. I'm not sure how long though. We used to freeze the block kind and the sandwich slices. Hope this helps a bit

my freezer is full of cheese from this deal!! and should be good for awhile! I have stocked up on the planters before this deal and they have been good for several years!! I was surprized that after a couple years! the peanuts and mixed nuts where just as fresh as the day we bought them! has long as they are still sealed in can!
most freezer foods have a expiration date on the boxes! like the pizzas and such!! the mac and cheeses! What i did was open boxes and put the microwavable kind in zip loc bags and put them in bottom drawers of fridge to keep fresh and keep the cabinet critters from getting into the boxes! I never have had that problem but better save then sorry!! Over the years i have become very paticular about organizing my foods! I live in the country!! you never know what the bad weather well bring in!! lol! but jello snacks and crackers and cookies dont even last a day around here so i dont have to worry about stockpiling these items!! so i dont have much advice on these items!! hope that helps some! oh!! and the capri sun should last forever (this is just my own opinion) because the juiced is sealed in the containers!! I just stacked them in corner of kitchen and they well keep for a long while!

<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>I don't know whether this will help or not, but here's a link to the Kraft products. You can bring each product that you're wondering about and it should explain how long they're good. Also explains how to read the date codes on some that are coded by Julian date.

You can Ziploc and freeze things such as the nuts in their original container. They'll stay fresh a long time that way. I've kept them for a year with no problems. If you're not going to freeze them, I'd eat them close to the date Kraft recommends. They will get rancid.

The singles I bought last week (at .16 so I have a few. LOL) are good until October, so they are fairly long-dated. Some folks do well with freezing them. I find they get crumbly after they thaw. It would probably depend upon what you're planning on doing with them.
I'd freeze the Velveeta, since I use it for cooking anyway.
Crackers can be put into Ziplocs and frozen.
Haven't tried freezing the Ready-to-Eat puddings.

Sorry, I'm not much help. Hopefully, the website will help you some.

All the Capri Sun packages I have gotten so far have exp dates stamped on them. Most are 2005+ - so shouldn't have any trouble with those.
