Hi Emily - the bars won't spoil, but they will be soft. You can wrap them individually in plastic wrap and they'll travel better.

My guess is that travelling with this wouldn't be a big deal. Americans (especially the privileged, college-educated types) seem to get worked up about food spoilage despite the fact that a huge number of people on this planet still don't have modern refrigeration.

If you're really worried, don't put it in your carry-on bag. Put it in your checked luggage which will sit in a unheated, unpressurized cargo bay. Air temperature at normal cruising altitudes (~35,000 feet) are sub-freezing.
