Hunt's Snack Pack is a brand of individually packaged single-serving snacks, specifically, shelf-stable pudding and gels. The product line was introduced in 1968.
In the food processing industry, shelf-stable means that a typically refrigerated product has been altered so it can be safely stored and sold in sealed container at room temperature while still having a "useful" shelf life.
Various food preservation techniques are used to extend a food's shelf life. Decreasing the amount of available water in a product, increasing its acidity, or irradiating or otherwise sterilizing the food and then sealing it in an air-tight container, can all extend a food's shelf life without significantly changing its taste or texture.
