👤I've been trying to make our meals more interesting. With restaurants closing or changing dramatically, we're making more of our meals at home, we tend to get focused on our online work at home, and will frequently order delivery or takeout because it's easier, so I've been experimenting with different options. We haven't been eating much of potatoes. We don't like them, but they're very labor intensive and you need to make something simple like mashed potatoes from a box. I don't keep fresh potatoes in the pantry because the ones on the bottom were purple and greenish before I got to the bag. When they reach that stage, it's unsafe to eat. They are a part of the nightshade family. They can be toxic in certain circumstances. I didn't like the sauce packets that came with the Au Gratin potato products because they had dehydrated, sliced potatoes in them. I used the bag or box of dehydrated potatoes as a substitute for buying the products. It was expensive to do it that way. I tried to find something else while I was on Amazon. I looked at the product in detail after I found it. I found the dehydrated, sliced potatoes in the 10 cans. I have figured out that a larger package is more economical for stapled items. The larger bucket was found at Augason's Amazon store. I got the bucket because it was about the same size as fresh potatoes and the economy of scale made it worth buying. It arrived a few days later. The LID is my only gripe with this product. I didn't buy a tool for opening these buckets because I didn't know if I'd be getting more of them, and I didn't want to buy a tool for a one-time use. I hate unitaskers in the kitchen, but in the long run it's a good aversion to have because of the fine points of cooking from the videos. Multi taskers are more economical. I had to open it myself. It was a challenge. I had to make small cuts with a knife to get enough flex to pop one corner up and off. The resealability of the bucket was not damaged. It took me 10 minutes to open that bucket, but I would get my patience back. I had no idea how much I'd need to use for my test dish, so I just looked at it. I filled a couple and put some cling-wrap over the top of the bucket to keep the bags in my cupboard at all times. The cling-wrap made it easier to take the lid off later. I salted the water on the stove as if I was making pasta. You want the water to taste very salty, like seawater, and you can do that with pasta as well. The potatoes absorb salt from the water. If you've over-salted a stock or a soup, you can toss in some potatoes and let it cook for a while. The potatoes will lower the saltiness of the liquid. It's a way to fix a dish in an emergency. You can use the potatoes for something else after removing them. If you cook potatoes in unsalted water, they will be tasteless and taste like wet starch. Not as good as cardboard. Salt your cooking water. You can't just add it to the final dish. The potatoes need salt to season them. I drained the potatoes after cooking them until they were close to the texture I wanted. I put the baking dish aside. I added enough milk to cover the potatoes in the pot, butter, and a pinch of kosher salt. The pepper I have had is the best I've had. I started adding cheese after I brought the pot to a boil. I buy bulk cheddar cheese powder online as it can be used in a lot of dishes. I stirred it in after adding about a quarter of it. It is similar to a mac and cheese dinner in that it is a flat cheese flavor. I stirred the Land O' Lakes New Yorker American Cheese until it was melted and incorporated. The main trick in making a cheese sauce is melting the salts in American cheese. If I add American cheese to the milk, I like the taste of that New Yorker American, but I could just add the melting salts on their own. I added a cup of shredded generic sharp cheddar cheese to my groceries. It lasts a long time because I keep it frozen. I added a quarter cup of whole milk mozzarella for the stringiness. I added an additional cup of heavy cream, gave it a stir, and then transferred it to the baking dish after everything was incorporated. I added some ground pepper to it after I tasted it. Ore-Ida's "Just Crack an Egg" breakfast cup was opened by me. It's a plastic cup with packets of pre-measured filling. You open these and empty them into a cup, add your own egg, and microwave it according to the directions. It's a very good breakfast. The "protein-packed" variety contains shredded cheddar and a packet of crumbled breakfast sausage and bacon, both precooked and well drained. I put the packets in my microwave for about 12 minutes and then put them back in. I left the liquid content in the dish high because I knew the second part of cooking would absorb most of it. The last 3 minutes of cooking, I put in my microwave's grilling rack and set it to grill for 3 minutes, making the top of the dish nice and brown. There are 3 cooking methods for my microwave. There are combinations of these as well. I dread having to replace it when it dies. The potatoes were just a tad al dente, so they were done and tender, but still had a bit of a chew, just the way I like them. The sauce was very complex and had a good cheese pull when you took a forkful. The breakfast cup added some complexity to the flavor. It was delicious. My life partner loved this dish so much that he went back for an extra spoon or two. This is high praise. There was only a small bag of leftovers as a snack. My partner liked potatoes. She said she wouldn't have known they were dehydrated if I hadn't told her they were dehydrated. Thanks to the large bucket size, I'll have these potatoes on hand for a long time, something we can all appreciate in these trying times. Augason farms has an excellent staple food product.
Also, note: When the oxygen has been removed, bags may not shrink like vacuum bags. Absorbers only absorb 21% of the air, which is oxygen. The air volume will be gone about 1/3 of the time. The apple-cinnamon flavor is pleasant. It is easy to store an optimal balance of cholesterol and vitamins. Each bar can be eaten in six portions with a total of 2400 calories.
👤You should ignore anyone who reviews this on the basis of how it tastes. This is not a camping or hiking snack. When you find yourself trapped in the wilderness or in your own home after a disaster, survival ration tastes bland or bad to discourage excessive eating. These taste ok. It was kind of a cinnamon shortbread. For its intended use, texture and quality are fine. I have received 6 of these packages so far and all of them have been sealed perfectly. I put a second layer of vacuum plastic over my survival food to protect it from accidental puncturing and to extend its lifespan. If you get any that have a vacuum loss, just eat it or throw it away. Poor handling in transit or a minor factory defect are the reasons why they're not worth a 1 star review. The calories come out to $.001 per calories. I've been searching for and buying long term storage emergency ration for over a decade and never have I found a better price in the market. Put these in a box in the back of a closet and then buy a bunch of canned and dry foods for your "shtf" meals. These calories are not a meal replacement. To make sure you're getting something resembling real sustenance, keep a bottle of multi vitamins, a few gallons of water, and a couple pounds of freeze dried potatoes or rice nearby. I'm up to 15. I haven't had a single issue with them losing vacuum. Don't let bad luck deter you from purchasing these. If you keep buying these low cost alternatives, the price gougers will start lowering their prices.
👤It appears to be a single pack.
👤The product is not accurate. One pack is not 4 days of food, but one day of food. This product has a shelf life of 5 years and will last 2 years. I am angry with the seller for misrepresenting the product. I would love to have my money back. I could shop locally and find a better deal.
👤We thought we were getting a box of four, not one bar. The image showed four. Since that time, it has changed. The price for 4 seems reasonable. The cost for one is out of line. The product was useless because of the broken vacuum seal. The bars are good for emergency food. We've bought them from local retailers before. The experience of this seller was not great.
👤I ordered 8 boxes and got 8 bars that were not a good value and the bars were good but not at this price.
👤The vacuum seal wasn't intact. The company uses an illustration that shows 4 packages. Caveat emptor is not for purchase.
👤Any type of emergency food is very expensive. These single packs are also selling other places for $20+ each. Also. For $5, you get 2400 calories and a 5 year shelf life, which is a good deal for something that you can just open and eat. You can get these from Wal-mart for five cents cheaper than Amazon will charge, but you have to order four of them. It's a very dense bread type bar. More powdery than bread, like gingerbread. It tastes like a sweet dessert with a hint of cinnamon. It's not something I'd go out of my way to snack on, but it tastes good and is similar to a dense bar. It doesn't taste bad like other emergency ration bars that taste like chemicals or gross. There are some that are my favorite for taste and price. It's worth $5 to have a car glove box and all your backpacks. Just in case. If you break it into the six 400 calories sections, you'll get one of these.

👤The homeless in the area received a few of these. These things can be life saving.
👤I haven't had the chance to use these to the full extend but the possible uses mentioned is my favorite part of the product. You can use them for anything. From building a house to sailing the seas. We can use the sun's power and have infinite fuel if we wrap it in these. There are so many possibilities.
👤I keep these in my car, truck, RV, and Harley, but I also use them when I redecorate my home. I cut these to fit the recess. I spray the walls with either 77 or 99 glue and roll them out smooth with a small paint roller top. The radaiator keeps more heat in the room because the heat bounces back into it.
👤We wanted to find a way to improve heat retention for our shelters, but also wanted to find a couple of these for the vehicles. We covered the styrofoam containers with a thin material. We put padding into pillow cases. The cats seem to like the shelters and the new mother and her kitten are in them.
👤I pack a few for when we go camping and keep one in my car. It works great and is very small. It dropped in the low 20s one night during our camping trip in October and having this as an extra layer between my cot and sleeping bag made a huge difference.
👤These were perfect for camping in the cold weather. When the temperature dropped to 25F, these came in handy because I don't have winter specific camping gear. I put one between my tent wall and my sleeping bag to keep the condensation off of it. My son got cold overnight and I threw another one over his sleeping bag to warm him up. I will keep the other 2 in the emergency kits in the car and camping gear.
👤The blankets are thin and tear easily, but this seems to be more sturdy and hardy. I used it on my bed all winter and it has held up. I was careful about it when I made the bed, but not really. It makes a lot of crackling noise, but for those applications where you need warmth without electricity, you can't go wrong. I have one in my car, with my camping stuff, in my hurricane supplies box, everywhere I could think of.
👤I used to line cat shelters.
Each bar can be eaten in six portions with a total of 2400 calories. There are 18 bars with 200 calories per bar. It is packaged in a way that makes it easy to ration and store in your survival and disaster kit. All natural ingredients with superior coconut flavor. The small and lightweight is USCG approved and has a 5 year shelf life. A high energy value and ready to eat.
👤I got the full life from my pack, which was packed in July of last year. I bought this to see if it worked out. The directions say to eat 1 bar every 6 hours at sea and 4 hours on land. It's 4 bars per day since you won't be awake for 24 hours. You could go 4 days on that metric. I only had 3 bars on my first day. It's possible to go for 5 days. I only ate 25% of my normal intake, so I felt weaker throughout the day. I have a very physically demanding job. It's a good test to me. The bars are wrapped. They look like someone crushed a bunch of dog biscuits and compressed them into a bar that was three times as thick. The individual wrappers are not sealed. They are hard to unwrap, and you will have to break the bar into pieces to open it. The bar is very brittle and can easily fall. It's basically the same flavor as a slightly old graham cracker. You could put it on a cheese cake. If you drink a little water with it, you can have it in your mouth for a while.
👤The portable calories are waterproof. Perfect emergency food. There were no strong reactions among the people I've had try them. These are supposed to be coconut flavor, but I didn't like it at all, they taste like a graham cracker. It's a good thing that these are easy to eat for people with poor or no teeth as the texture is very crumbly. Emergency ration should be easy to eat and neutral. If you need to bust into these, there's no reason you should have to eat terrible food because the situation is already bad. They're not good enough for anyone to get into them without a need. Not good for frivolous snacking. When you last heard someone say "I'm craving some emergency ration!" Nope, me not. It helps if you aren't really good at making sure they're there when you need them. The outer package is easy to open, but the inner plastic shrink wrap on the individual bars was difficult to open. It is doable, but a knife or sharp object will make it easier. They made good s'mores. The leftovers from the tester packages were not as good as normal crackers, but we had to find something to do with them.
👤I haven't tried them yet because I purchased them for shelf storage. I only bought one pack because I wanted to try them, but my husband said no. My review is based on the packaging. I bought them on 4-13-2017. The manufacturing date is 9-15, and only just now been noticed. These are 1.5 years old. I know they have 3 years left on them, but when I asked the seller about the shelf life, he said they have a 5 year shelf life. All of our stock is new. I'm not happy that I'm losing shelf life, but I only paid $9 for them. I'm not going to complain to the company and have no plans to return them, but just be aware that when you receive them, they may not have 5 years of shelf storage left. The package was vacuum sealed and arrived quickly. The instructions are printed on them at sea and land. I don't have to worry about remembering. There are drinking water tips in emergency situations. I'll update my review if I can convince the husband to open them. If it had full shelf life, I would have given it 4 stars.
America's favorite brand of under sink water filters is the highly rated reverse osmosis systems. The water filter is made with premium quality components and comes with a 1-year limited manufacturer warranty and lifetime personalized support from GA, USA. There are two bottles of Potable Aqua Water Purification Tablets. Water treatment tablets are used for water purification. Potable Aqua emergency water purification tablets are effective against Giardia lamblia. Even in emergency water purification situations, water purification tablets can be used. Water treatment tablets are ideal to keep with camping gear.
👤The product was made in 2011. I received the same bottle every time. Don't waste time.
👤The item was delivered in a paper envelope, without a factory seal on the bottles. It's super vague.
👤I was surprised to receive two bottles filled with tablets. It was not in the cardboard sealed packaging that was advertised. Please tell me what to do?
👤I was shocked when I looked at the instructions on the bottle that they were not in line with what the seller said. The bottle says you should use 2 tablets per quart of water, but the sellers say 1 tablet per quart. I am short on supplies and this is half the value advertised. I paid full price for half of what I was promised, but not as much as I need. This is not acceptable. I submitted a false product information report a week or two ago, but it has since been corrected. The instructions on the bottle state 2 tablets are needed, even though the image states "1 tablet 888-349-8884 The image seems to have been removed. I'm also concerned about the dates that are past. The bottles come loose in a brown packing bag and there is no identifying information on them. I'm trying to contact the manufacturer to see if this number can be used to find the date of manufacture and the expiration date. The website of Portable Aqua states that the pills never expire. They like magic and are good for it. It's amazing! Every expert review states that the tablets will not last more than 4 years. I have already had false advertising and I find it hard to believe that these pills are different. If I have any success in contacting the company, I will update here again.
👤The package that is shown has 2 of these not in it. The bottles had a white dust on them as if they had been sitting for a long time. They don't show an expiration date because they weren't in the original packaging. Disappointed.
👤They came loose in an envelope, not in the manufacturer's packaging. They are over a year old, there is no seal on the cap, and who knows when they were packaged or if they have been tampered with.
👤I think I should give these 5 stars. I used them to drink tap water in Argentina and didn't get sick, so they did work. The water was turned into a dirty brown color.
👤They were sent to some friends in Puerto Rico to have safe drinking water. I wish they didn't need it, but they do and it's effective because they can drink water.
👤Aunque vienen dos Frascos, cada Frasco Cumple con una funcin different. Para cada litro de agua, solo se tiene 25 litros en total. Me habra gustado, quiero ms clara antes de comprar el producto, por ello lo pongo en comentarios, pues nosotros nos fuimos. No se especifica en Amazon, pero es importante, es para un uso continuo. Nos perjudica a nosotros en un uso continuo, ellos dicen. Las pastillas son pequeas. No miden ms de 6 centmetros de alto, pero no quiere. Esto resulta prctico para traerlo. A diferencia de las soluciones lquidas, las pastillas no tienen estar en refrigeracin. I parece importante a tener encuenta, por ltimo, el tiempo de purificacin del agua.
A life warranty. They back up all products for life and have a 100% money back policy. Losing body heat is a major cause of death. The Leberna Emergency Survival Mylar Thermal Sleeping Bag can increase your chances of survival in all weather. It is made of Mylar, a material designed by NASA. It reflects most of the body heat. It is waterproof and windproof. The Leberna Emergency Survival Mylar Thermal Sleeping Bag is larger in size and length. It has a bright yellow strip on the edge. It's intended as an emergency shelter, but it's also great for camping, hiking, and protection from the cold outdoors. The Leberna Emergency Survival Mylar Thermal Sleeping Bag has two packs in one box. Each pack has its own carry bag. The pack weight is only 2.8 ounces with the carry bag. The pack is 7 inches by 3 inches. It is easy to carry and store in your car, back pack or emergency kit. All Leberna products come with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee and a money back guarantee. It is important for customers who have never purchased a Mylar Thermal Sleeping Bag or Blanket to know that the material is very thin. NASA designed it for space exploration. The sleeping bag or blanket can be folded into a very small size, even though it's big.
👤I used this product during my stay at Joshua Tree but I'm not sure if it did what it was supposed to do. I used my sleeping bags in warm weather. I put the sleeping bag in the thermal mylar and slid into it. The warmth of the inner layer may have caused my socks to be moist, because of the slight condensation effect of the cold outside temperature of the tent. I'm not sure if I need the thermal mylar or the sleeping bag in 40 degree weather. The mylar was making noise while trying to sleep. Imagine the sound it makes when you wrap your dishes and glassware in newspaper or when you roll a large plastic bag into a ball.
👤These are great for an emergency and a decent value. I bought the heavy duty Titan to compare, but it's too thin to use a digital caliper to compare. I don't know if thicker means they are more likely to be reuse in an emergency, but they are a better bet to use in an emergency and then throw away. I don't think the extra cost of the Titan is worth it, as I believe they will all retain heat the same, and I would like to see some real world test comparisons. I don't like hiking without this and other safety items. I've been injured on the trail before. It's great for a light weight emergency blanket, but better safe than sorry.
👤I used this product for camping in the national forest. The night started out warm. I noticed it was getting cold. I bought a sleeping bag for emergencies because I noticed that the weather was going to get cold and I wanted to try it out. The bag will keep in heat but also condensation and it can easily be ripped. The wind chilled the condensation. In the bag. I woke up multiple times. This bag is not a good one to use if you want to alert enemies or freeze it. If you are still and not windy, the weight is very light.
👤I like that it is double-sided mylar, so it reflects heat both inward and away. Southern California is a major fire country. If I ever need to break these out, they could be used to keep us cooler in the daytime and offer less protection from intense heat to car passengers while escaping fire. The reflective surface is better for signaling help. I put one in each bag.
👤It was very useful when I went to Mt. Everest Base Camp. They are extremely noisy. I used mine to fortify the blankets at the guest house I was staying at so the rustling kept waking me up, not something you'd worry about in an emergency survival situation.
👤I'm thinking about getting more of these for the homeless people I see. It's a great product to add to my grab and go bag.
👤This didn't keep me warm. It's better to carry a portable blanket than a real sleeping bag.
You won't find tougher mylar emergency blankets anywhere. It is guaranteed. They help protect the wild places they love by donating a percentage of their sales. There are 26,440 calories in the total. 2,203 calories per day. There are Pouches with Food Varieties. A 20 year shelf life is possible.
👤I was worried about buying this for our emergency supplies kit because of the reviews about the packages. When I opened mine for inspection, there was no expiration date and no rips. If you're in an emergency situation that requires using this bucket, I think you can't be too picky. I bought a bunch of emergency water pouches, Coghlan's emergency stove, and the Odoland 22 piece camping kit. This seems to be the most cost-effective way to go about emergency food and water for a family of 4.
👤Good price for tuff package. The package was over a year old. The hurricanes are getting worse and worse in the south, so we bought this. It appears that weather is breaking records all over the world. Its only going to get worse.
👤It was the first time that I got from Augason farms. One of the bags had potatoes in it. Hopefully this isn't a common occurrence if I decide to order again.
👤The bags were broken open. The rest were fine. This problem has been mentioned in many other reviews. There is no meat in any of these items. It's a shame. It's good to have a source of sustenance. Lots of processed carbs leave you bloated and hungry an hour later. Not a good combo in an emergency. I have bought many other Auguson Farms products and like them a lot. This is the first emergency food I've eaten from them. The flavors are good, except for the fake milk. I am disappointed in this product, but it could be fixed easily with better packaging, real cows, and meat.
👤The container is tightly sealed. I hope I can open it during an emergency. It's funny. This product has a very tight seal. I wouldn't doubt the product'ssustainability. I hope I don't have to but if I do I will be happy that I chose a company that took the extra effort to seal it properly. Thank you.
👤I hope I never need to use it.
👤Haven't had a chance to taste it yet. I plan on using them for camping or if needed due to power failures. It makes me feel better.
👤I like the compactness of the meals in one container, in case we need to grab and get out.
👤I opened the bucket to add more items. I'm not happy to see that the packages are not sucked in. It contains no meat or bean dishes, so be aware. Chicken flavors and rendered chicken fat are in 2 of the varieties. There was no fruit. There is nothing in the ingredient list for the oatmeal pic. Not a balanced diet is definitely not. I guess if I'm hungry this will help. The second picture shows how a package looks when I package my own food.
👤The contents are described. Prime shipping is very fast. I haven't tried any of the packs inside, but I think they will be good. There is a bit of extra space inside the air-tight pail.
Good To-Go meals are made in Kittery, Maine. You can enjoy this food for 25 years from now. Any food storage program has a back bone. It's good to eat now and it's good enough to store for a long time. There are no high fructose corn syrup, soy, or any of the other ingredients. Black bean soup, sweet habanero chili with pineapple, rice pilaf, classic chili, and oatmeal with brown sugar are some of the dishes. Black bean soup, sweet habanero chili with pineapple, rice pilaf, classic chili, and oatmeal with brown sugar are some of the dishes.
👤I got 2 after I sent this back. There are only 8 serving per pouch which doesn't do me much good. There isn't much food for 500. I can buy a huge amount of canned goods for that price.
👤I tried about 6 or 7 different MRE's and this is the one I will be buying from now on.
👤This is a great product. In case of an emergency, they put all the great kinds of food together.
👤Once it is received, I would suggest opening the bucket. To make opening easier, not much is checked. Have not tried anything yet. I know I should.
👤The company is great. There was a small hole in it. I sent them the pictures I took. Replacements are sent to me. Would use this company again. Comes in a bin.
👤A lightweight food source.
Absolutely insane! The bags will not let air in, eliminating any worries about damage. INDIVIDUAL OXYGEN ABSORBERS are vacuum-sealed and prevent exposure to air. Don't ruin a whole package of absorbers. The perfect size for 5 gallon Mylar bags is 2500cc oxygen packet. The shelf life of dry goods can be extended by using 2500CC CAPACITY, which is perfect for use in 5-Gallon Mylar bags. Freeze dried foods. Absorber packet material is food grade and safe to use for the short and long term storage of food items. The highest level of compliance to safety standards is ensured by the testing of Wallaby products. The convenience storage bag has a zip seal to make it easier to store and retrieve the vacuum sealed absorbers inside. All of your supplies should be in one place. No more lost packets or spoiled absorbers. Also, note: When the oxygen has been removed, bags may not shrink like vacuum bags. Absorbers only absorb 21% of the air, which is oxygen. The air volume will be gone about 1/3 of the time. Also, note: When the oxygen has been removed, bags may not shrink like vacuum bags. Absorbers only absorb 21% of the air, which is oxygen. The air volume will be gone about 1/3 of the time.
👤I have used a lot of oxygen absorbers. They look like 100cc packets. If you use these for long term food storage, you really want to use the correct amount, or you could have dangerous food spoilage.
👤I ordered 500cc O2 absorbers and thought they were smaller than the 300cc absorbers I have ordered before. I was going to pack 5 gallon bags of beans and rice. I filled the bag with 25 lbs of pinto beans. As they seemed small, opened and dropped in 10 O2 absorbers, I had to purge as much air as possible. The 5000ccs worth of absorbers should have been enough for this. The bag should have collapsed tightly around the beans after 36 hours. The bag was still loose, so this wasn't the case. I have used other brands with no issues. I don't think this is a good idea for larger storage jobs.
👤These absorbers are not oxygen absorbers, they are not deodorizers. I wasted time and money. The other reviews should have made me believe them.
👤Individual packages. Don't have to worry about managing a full bag of absorbers. These are the right size for packing dry products in a gallon of Mylar for long term storage.
👤I wasted my money because less than half of them worked. Don't buy if you're warned.
👤The oxygen absorbers are vacuum sealed in 10 separate packages. It's good to know that the absorbers will still be fresh when I use them. They keep my coffee and peanuts fresh, and I will definitely order more when I need them.
👤My dog and cats love these. A small dog and cats. Cats 20 - 32 #. They take it from under their noses.
👤You don't waste these individually sealed packs. I think it's amazing. I have not had an issue with using a few. Will buy again if I need more.

👤The food in the bag has a 5 year shelf life. July of 2020 is when the water expires. If the food and water were to last for 5 years, this bag would not work in the car. I was not happy with the contents.
👤I bought this in 2012 and it has expired. The items are easy to replace. Everything can be purchased separately at your local retail store for a lower price. If you don't have anything, this is a great starting point. The basics are taken care of. The pack has some of the most basic supplies that an average person would need. This isn't a one-time purchase, so you have to forget it. If you have special medical needs, child needs, pet needs, etc, you need to gut the backpack, get a decent backpack, and put these items in along with your other personal items. Some items that could be added to this would be tools, knives, medications, clothes, water filter, radio, phone charger, and so on. There are a lot of videos and articles on surviving a catastrophic event online. Pick your most comfortable level of readiness because some are more extreme than others. Again, this kit should be the base of a larger set of gear that should be portable and easy to grab and go for a few days when the stuff really hits the fan. My wife's car trunk has held this backpack for the past few years. I took it out to replace some items and it broke when I pulled on the zippers. The backpack isn't meant to last very long. I exercise, but the way these snapped off made me feel like I had to check my drink for steroids.
👤The masks in these packs are dust masks.
👤I buy a backpack for my cars, work, and home every 5 years. I am very disappointed that this supply kit has first aid kits with an expired date. I tried to contact the company to get a replacement first aid kit, but I am not getting any help. I will not purchase from this company again.
👤I ordered this for my family to keep in the truck. Not bad for the price, but overpriced. There were 3 leaking boxes of water and 2 open food ration bags when the water was delivered. The bottom of the box fell out when it was delivered. The bag was wet because of the water. You would probably be better off building your own bag for your family. I would recommend military surplus stores.
👤When the power went out during the April snow storm, my wife was worried about being prepared. It will be nice to have an emergency pack loaded and ready to go, since we live and use a lot of the items in the bag, but we don't always have enough groceries in the house to last us a long time. This pack is basic and probably not bad, mostly because it's fairly expensive and likely the hood of it will be used in my case. I'm not out much. We had to make the bag more useful in an emergency after I went through all of the items. I would consider economy items in the included items. It will suit the need when you have nothing else. The construction of the bag seems to be of 'O.K.' and it doesn't look like it's going to fall in a closet. The bag is small and not as big as a normal school bag. Additional ponchos, pocket knife, hand sanitizer, more basic first aid items, hand warmers, flash lights, and two way radios were added.

👤Not an MRE alternative. 5 large bags of dry ingredients cost more than what I could buy at the store and still require a pot and water to make. It's only useful in the ideal survival scenario. It is worthless for survival and a waste of money.
👤The bag is sealed with rice, beans, macaroni and pancake mix. It would be cheaper to buy it at the store. You need a pot and water to cook food. It is not like a MRE that you just add water and cook. The packaging is thick and seals tight. Customer service is great.
👤I was expecting a premade meal. The money was wasted.
👤It comes out to about 16 cents per 100 calories. You can't beat that. Some of it is white rice. It's in a package for 25 years. You have to replace it every couple years. I'm going to buy more. You could eat 1000 calories a day with the other 2 week supplies, but only if you had one box. Think about it. A family of 4 can have a month's supply of food for $200.
👤I bought these because I wanted to save them for a rainy day or flash flood, but I haven't opened them yet. I like the packaging, it makes it look nice to get a box of food, but I wish there was a different type of box for storage since I live in the Pacific Northwest and everything gets damp. I could put the food in a tote. The food is in a nice package. I thought it was cute that it told you when it was born. We can make it last for a while if we give a lot of serving for practical reasons. I was happy to get the emergency food and put it in a cute box. Maybe take it camping this summer.
👤It is a great price for a basic meal prep. It comes in a box that is crushed by your door. The company needs a better package after the contents were not damaged. I would buy one a month if it came better packaged. It is difficult to stack the product when the box is bulging. I'm going to buy some buckets to put it in. It seems to be good.
👤I don't buy military ration if there's no fuel or fire. This is a lot of food for a small amount of money. Having long lasting grains like this gives me some peace of mind.
👤I found that I should start just in case. The case was worth the price for a first timer. It doesn't take up much space in our limited storage and the packaging is secure, so there are no worries about anything going bad. The ingredients are straight forward and easy to make. I recommend!
