Mustard requires refrigeration? I've been storing mustard and sriracha sauce unrefrigerated in my office for months and eating a little every day. Always tastes good.

I'm going to assume and hope that Romano is similar to Parmesan, because i much prefer the former to the latter.

Unlike Jennifer, my TJs tortillas lasted at least 8 days - I just ate my last Roast Beef-Cheddar-Cream Cheese wrap after crossing the Arctic Circle (southbound) this morning. Now, I did keep them in soft cooler for 3 days. Then in airplane luggage on 3 flights for 4,000 miles (it's cool at 33,000 feet), then in the rental-car trunk from Fairbanks to the Brooks Range. Then in my pack for two days (also in Gates of the Arctic).

Edited to add: I'm now home, and the TJ tortillas have gone another 300 miles by road, spent a day in Fairbanks, two more flights, and a night in the hallway before I unpacked. And are still fine.

YMMV. Based on your climate.

But based on the above info, I'd go with the Mission ones in the future.

Romano is the same - mostly. It just has to do with where it is made and what milk is used. It can often be made with sheep or goat's milk, although cow is used also.

Both it and Parmesan are hard, salty - and delicious - cheese :-)
