IF YOU DECIDE TO ORDER ON LINE CHECK OUT ANASUPER.COM THAT IS WHERE I ORDERED MINE. I BOUGHT 2 CASES OF EACH SHAPE AND EVEN WITH THE SHIPPING COSTING NEARLY AS MUCH AS THE NOODLES, IT WAS ABOUT $30 CHEAPER THAN OTHER OPTIONS. IT CAN BE REFRIGERATED(BUT NOT FROZEN)FOR 6 MONTHS.

I bought mine at www.locarbu.com, they have a flat rate $8.00 shipping cost no matter how many noodles you buy.

LOW CARB U CHARGES 70 CENTS MORE PER BAG OF NOODLES. I LIVE IN MAINE AND WOULD HAVE TO HAVE PAID FOR EXPEDITED SHIPPING SO THEY WOULD HAVE COST ME MORE, BUT IF YOU LIVE WITHIN A TWO DAY SHIPPING AREA IT COULD INDEED BE LESS SINCE BOTH ANASUPER AND LOW CARB U ARE IN CA.
