Emergency Food Rations
This package of emergency food rations is approved by the US Coast Guard for five year shelf life under all conditions.
The rations pack contains 9 food bars, containing 3682 calories. Three bars per day per person is sufficient to sustain life and health until help arrives.
For any avid outdoor enthusiast, this rations pack is a no brainer to be added to the backpack. Weighing just 1.6 pounds and measuring 4.5 by 2.5 inches, the impact is minimal compared to the safety they can provide. And they taste pretty darn good as well!
So far so good
The best brand I have tried so far.
I ordered four different brands of emergency rations through amazon to sample and see which one I will buy more of. S.O.S. was by far the best in all aspects. Great packaging, By far the best tasting, Freshly made, etc. I will absolutely be buying a large quantity of this product. They were actually so good I’d almost eat them for a snack.
These taste pretty good, I actually cracked the first one open
These taste pretty good, I actually cracked the fist one open and shared bars with the family, and they all said they were pretty decent (not exactly snack food, but wouldn’t mind eating them any time I needed to). The dates on my bag were withing a couple months of being new, so they have their full life span left on them. These will store longer, and at higher temperatures than MRE’s do without going bad as quickly. I also have to say they are extremely small and light for being 3 days off emergency food, so consider that a benefit as well. As emergency food only, they’re 400 calories per bar X 3 bars per day X 3 days in a single white pouch, so only 1,200 calories per day, but they’re aimed at true emergencies where that can keep you going. Definitely not a substitute for your normal camp food or an MRE for a typical meal, just a long lasting backup that won’t be spoiled when you need to use it.
