I love the convenience of mini-moos and have purchased them a number of times before, but this vendor shipped an already-expired box of them. First of all the expiration date of the mini-moos was only 3 months away from when I recieved them. Spoiled half and half makes your coffee taste pretty nasty. Your creamer may not have come from a cow. Where else but the SD would I get an answer in < 10 minutes? The product is great but these almost always come slightly damaged. Just opened my box of 192 Mini-Moos today, the expiration date shows September, however the whole box is trash. Typically it takes 3-4 Minis per mug/cup. The average little half and half has a shelf life of about 6 months or more. I tried to remain hopefull and started to use them. No, Mini-Moos and other UHT products (such as Parmalat milk) are processed in a manner different from evaporated or condensed milk. Now I will be a smart ass and go inform the masses as if I knew all along. that said, do you think mini moos is still a better choice than powdered creamer. Have you got a Big Question you'd like us to answer? Evaporated or condensed milk is “cooked” to remove some of its water. Thank you – our customers appreciate it! So why would you expect this cream to last any longer? Thank you very much 3waygeek. We shook them, but they still curdled. It was such a good idea I’ve used nothing else since. The creamers themselves are great and make coffee over here SO MUCH BETTER. - Instant Pot Duo Plus 9-in-115 Quart Electric Pressure Cooker; $90 (save $40), - Le Creuset Enameled Cast Iron Signature Sauteuse 3.5 Quarts; $180 (save $120), - KitchenAid KSMSFTA Sifter with Scale Attachment; $95 (save $75), - Keurig K-Mini Coffee Maker; $60 (save $20), - Anova Culinary Sous Vide Precision Cooker; $139 (save $60), - JoyJolt Double Wall Insulated Espresso Mugs - Set of Two; $14 (save $10), - Longzon Silicone Stretch Lids - Set of 14; $13 (save $14), - iRobot Roomba 675 Robot Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity; $179 (save $101), - Fairywill Electric Toothbrush with Four Brush Heads; $19 (save $9), - ASAKUKI 500ml Premium Essential Oil Diffuser; $22 (save $4), - Facebook Portal Smart Video Calling 10 inch Touch Screen Display with Alexa; $129 (save $50), - Bissell air320 Smart Air Purifier with HEPA and Carbon Filters; $280 (save $50), - Oscillating Quiet Cooling Fan Tower; $59 (save $31), - TaoTronics PTC 1500W Fast Quiet Heating Ceramic Tower; $55 (save $10), - Vitamix 068051 FoodCycler 2 Liter Capacity; $300 (save $100), - AmazonBasics 8-Sheet Home Office Shredder; $33 (save $7), - Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch; $40 (save $20), - Marvel's Spider-Man: Game of The Year Edition for PlayStation 4; $20 (save $20), - Minecraft Dungeons Hero Edition for Nintendo Switch; $20 (save $10), - The Last of Us Part II for PlayStation 4; $30 (save $30), - LEGO Harry Potter: Collection; $15 (save $15), - BioShock: The Collection; $20 (save $30), - God of War for PlayStation 4; $10 (save $10), - Days Gone for PlayStation 4; $20 (save $6), - Luigi's Mansion 3 for Nintendo Switch; $40 (save $20), - Apple MacBook Air 13 inches with 256 GB; $899 (save $100), - New Apple MacBook Pro 16 inches with 512 GB; $2149 (save $250), - Samsung Chromebook 4 Chrome OS 11.6 inches with 32 GB; $210 (save $20), - Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 with 13.5 inch Touch-Screen; $1200 (save $400), - Lenovo ThinkPad T490 Laptop; $889 (save $111), - Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet (64GB); $120 (save $70), - Amazon Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet (32 GB); $130 (save $70), - Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8 inches with 32 GB; $100 (save $50), - Apple iPad Mini (64 GB); $379 (save $20), - Apple iMac 27 inches with 256 GB; $1649 (save $150), - Vankyo MatrixPad S2 Tablet; $120 (save $10), - Apple Watch Series 3 with GPS; $179 (save $20), - SAMSUNG 75-inch Class Crystal 4K Smart TV; $998 (save $200), - Nixplay 2K Smart Digital Picture Frame 9.7 Inch Silver; $238 (save $92), - All-New Amazon Echo Dot with Clock and Alexa (4th Gen); $39 (save $21), - MACTREM LED Ring Light 6" with Tripod Stand; $16 (save $3), - Anker Soundcore Upgraded Bluetooth Speaker; $22 (save $8), - Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote; $28 (save $12), - Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless Camera with EF-M 15-45mm Lens; $549 (save $100), - DR.

This box came with a 5 week expiration, which was disappointing, but because I split them with a co-worker, was not a big issue. That's because, in essence, the dairy has been "canned." UHT products are simply ultra-pastuerized using a much higher temprature that sterilizes the milk. For that reason, I would recommend having this shipped next-day or 2-day at most. Evaporated or condensed milk is "cooked" to remove some of its water. The problem with the Mini Moos is that I never see an expiration date until I receive the product. That said, the science is pretty solid that partially hydrogenated anything (trans fats) are fairly far up the ‘bad for you’ scale, so I’d stick with the Mini Moos. The product is bad. At work, I choose to flavour my coffee a small plastic container labelled thusly: Land O Lakes® Mini•Moo’s® Half & Half K[sub]D[/sub] UHT Grade A At the office they sit in a bowl on the shelf outside of the refrigerator. They’re talking the little single-serving creamers that you get in diners, not Carnation and its ilk of non-dairy creamers. I cannot use all of the product in 2 months. I don’t even use up all the product and it’s past the expiration date. I don’t think these items ever are more than 3 months expiration. I’d had this box of creamers for only about a month when I noticed that the creamers were starting to spoil already, almost two months before the expiration date stamped on the box. The expiration date was clearly marked, and should not have been missed. I put out 2 small glass bowls full of Mini Moos, 1 at each end of our big table, along with an empty matching bowl for disposal (less messy than cream pitchers). this is REAL MILK. Canned milk was the first practical preserved milk that could be shipped and stored without refrigeration. that said, do you think mini moos is still a better choice than powdered creamer. it has some other funky stuff in it. We are heading to Italy in Sept and bringing our coffeemaker and these mini moos along! They are now gone because I started feeding one of these each day to my cat after he begged for more and trained me by manipulating me with his big sweet eyes until he got some. same thing with the parmalot milk that you buy unrefrigerated. I have ordered this product several times in the past however this time I am disappointed at the quilty of what I recieved. Thanks to another reviewer for informing that BJs does not carry it anymore. USE ANOTHER BRAND. I’m through the box and I have yet to find a burst creamer (I’m in Colorado so things usually swell and burst during transit to this elevation). Everyone was wondering how they worked. Now then, any requests for the busker when I go back to Starbucks this morning? I am extremely disappointed with this purchase / vendor.
