Hello, I was wanting to send some vacuum sealed, smoked cheese in the mail. Do I need to add some ice packs and overnight it or is it fine regularly? It will be mozzarella, cheddar, and pepper jack.

Cheese by definition is preserved Milk and maintains it's freshness best kept cool, 40-50*F, but has no problems at higher temps, 70-80*F. Add the preservative nature of smoke and you should have no issues, if it will arrive in a couple of days. Considering Figis and Hickory Farms ships all over the US without ice packs, I don't think you will have a problem...JJ
