Why do some products have shelf lives that are so much shorter than others?

Shelf life will vary depending on the chemical makeup of the product. For example, food items with higher fat contact will oxidize faster than products with lower fat content, which means the product will smell rancid sooner. Some food products will also have shorter shelf lives because the vitamins and calorie content will degrade over time faster than others.
