The container arrived in good condition and the bars were not melted after a 4-day transit. The ice packs were not very cold on arrival, but they did their job.
Previously I didn't think the insulated container would be necessary BUT then I got my purchase and wellll. my Peanut Butter Protein bars were toast (heheh) THIS time I purchased the insulated container and it was a good thing I did. By the time it got to me the ice packs were warming.. BUT did the job long enough to keep my bars JUST right.
