Emergency Survival Food Ration Bars
Preppers prefer these calorie dense emergency food rations for survival kits and bug out bags. They pack a calories in a small space and provide no nonsense energy for times of strife. A must have item for your emergency kit. These can provide you with food - or even be used to barter for supplies after an emergency disaster.
Military Spec, Tough, Foil package is waterproof and designed to take abuse. Hermetically sealed, vacuum packed, foil laminate package in the shape of solid bricks. No wasted space, long 5 year + shelf life. These Emergency Food Ration bars provide an economical and compact method to pack food in your worst case scenario disaster kit.
Choose a mix of sizes for your kit. Packaging is important, as these must be consumed or repackaged after opening. If you open a 3600 calorie bar for yourself you will have too much product left over and exposed. It is better to have several 1200 calorie packages so that some remain sealed. For groups or families the 2400 or 3600 calorie bars might be a better choice.
These bars are prepared under strict supervision to insure consistent quality and freshness. Pleasant and mild Lemon Flavor, ready to eat, they need no preparation. They are easy to eat in high stress "on the go" situations, or at camp.
Review: What do emergency food rations bars taste like ?
The big question always is "So what do they really taste like ?" We had a couple staffers review them in a taste test. Below is a summary of their impressions:
They come out of package as a light yellow hard square bar. When you bite it is a bit crumbly like a dried brownie or dried muffin. The texture in your mouth is granular like sugar. They require very little effort to chew and swallow, mostly dissolving. The bar has a mild lemon flavor - similar to the bottom crust of a lemon meringue pie. It is not offensive, nor is it something you would crave and order as dessert at a restaurant. It is somewhere in between, and rather boring. Compact, efficient, low cost, readily available vitamins and calories for an emergency situation.
What sizes of Emergency Survival Food Ration bars are available ?
Choose from 1200 , 2400 or 3600 calorie packages. Each food bar is scored with lines that delineate a 400 calorie portion. Snap the bars at the lines for portion control and sharing. Specifically, the 1200 package has 3 sections, 2400, has 6, and the 3600 contains 9. These packages really maximize calories per cubic inch.
