If Sunbutter will survive without refrigeration for 2 weeks?

We are travelling to Spain next week. I would like to have something I'm sure DD can eat. Even on the plane. My jars of Sunbutter say that 'refrigeration helps maintain freshness', but doesn't actually say it has to be.

I could keep it on ice, probably, overnight, and while we're in hotels, do you think this would be okay?

I have emailed the company, but have not yet had an answer. (Last time I had a question, I got a reply in a matter of a couple of days

Any/all ideas appreciated.

I never refrigerate ours and it stays fine in the pantry. A jar will usually last us at least a month and I've never had one go bad.
Enjoy your trip!

I have never refrigerated ours either. I always keep it in the cupboard and have been using it for years. Never been a problem with keeping it fresh - although we do go through a jar pretty fast.

I have SoyNut Butter, but I use to keep it in the fridge but stopped, it's easier to spread warm.

I like chunky and refridgerate mine.
DH likes smooth and he does not refridgerate his.
It doesn't seem to make any difference.

Thanks. I feel much better about taking some with us. DD will eat it by the spoonfull, so she will have a safe snack (or breakfast!).

I think our giant tub finally went bad, and we purchased it before school started. DH doesn't agree, but I think it smells funny. So does DS, so that's enough (DS and I are the only ones who eat it).
I think it's brilliant to take it on vacation.

We just got back from a two week trip to China and our Sun Butter was a live saver. It did fine, but then we had eaten it all by the end of the trip.

I wish Sunbutter sold those individual packages like one of the PB companies does. Has anyone ever seen that in Sunbutter?

I somehow recall once SUNBUTTER enclosed a small mini-tub (like the single-serve margarine or butter tubs you get with rolls sometimes at a restaurant) with my order. But that was a couple of years ago. If those were available, you could pack a bunch of them maybe!
I would call Sunbutter directly & ask.
