My daughter was first a little annoyed that so many boxes were in the order. But now she is very happy. Sometimes she just makes a entire box at 1 time, then we just use it up throughout the next few days. She uses a large microwave safe Tupperware to make it. She pours everything in the bowl mixes it all up, then cooks it in the microwave. I have Never imagined that was possible but they come out fine. Just have to make sure it is all mixed up beforehand. Oh, all the boxes were packed in a thick clear plastic bag before packed in the shipping box, so contents stayed dry. What a relief from worry from the weather.
