Brand: Ready America

👤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.

2. Datrex 3600 Emergency Food CASE

Datrex 3600 Emergency Food CASE

Non-GMO project verification: PROBAR products are non-GMO. There are three packages of 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. The coconut flavor is superior and all natural. The small and lightweight is USCG approved and has a 5 year shelf life. A high energy value and ready to eat. A high energy value and ready to eat.

Brand: Datrex

👤Datrex bars are very dense and delicious for a food of this class. This is a survival food that is low in vitamins and minerals but high in fat and sugar calories to keep you alert and keep you going. You can be amazed that this is three days of survival ration, if you have one of these 3600 calories. For educational value, you should get 3600 calories from other survival foods. If you have wheat allergies, these are not the right choice. The product was shipped the same month as it was manufactured, so it could not have been newer. The vacuum in the three packages was lost. The Mylar foil packaging is very stiff and thinner than it used to be, so it leaked from the corners where they contacted each other or impacted inside of the box because they were packed loose. Each package must be wrapped individually in bubble wrap or foam mat to protect the corners and stop shifting because the hard vacuum makes the package vulnerable to impact and the film shatters like glass. I have been working for a packaging equipment manufacturer for 20 years and we specialize in modified atmosphere packaging. These packages are vacuumed, nitrogen purged, and then vacuumed again to protect against oxidation, peroxide formation, and rancidity of the fats. The bars in the past may have been packed in nylon/EVOH which is a physically strong package, but does not have as good of an oxygen/moisture barrier as this much more expensive foil film. Datrex is not cheap on their packaging, but they are cheap because they use a thinner material than is necessary to survive in a get home bag, vehicle or boat. If you don't place these on a shelf, it's a good idea to put them in a second skin. The nitrogen barrier will oxidize in a few months after the package is punctured.

👤2 of the 3 were not sealed. I thought it might have happened during shipping. I tried eating one of the unvacum sealed ones and it was terrible. I have kept one of these for nearly five years and they were still completely vacuum sealed and delicious. I like how they taste. My girlfriend and I are eating the entire box of snacks. The newer ones I ordered were in all white packaging, the ones I had from a few years back were in all blue. I don't know if it makes a difference in the way they taste or the company that packages them. I thought I would let you know.

👤The package would have been a good value, but the product inside would not have lasted long because it wasn't vacuum sealed. The two packages on the right were not sealed. Even though it didn't work out, I gave it 2 stars because of the free shipping and good price.

👤I keep a few of these in our cars, cabin and home. I replaced them because they were approaching an expired date and then I decided to eat the ones that were still valid. I was surprised by the taste and texture. They have a cookie texture that reminded me of a denser pecan sandy cookie. The taste was mild but nice and I have been snacking on it every now and then. I've tried other emergency bars, but these are a step above them. If you had to eat these, it wouldn't be bad. There's always room for improvement, so I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5. Adding vitamins and minerals might be an improvement, as they don't have much nutrition other than calories.

3. Emergency Food Rations 10 3600 Calorie

Emergency Food Rations 10 3600 Calorie

A 500g pack contains 9 individual bars with an energy value of 260 kcal each, which are vacuum-welded together in an aluminum foil. A 500g pack offers more than an average daily emergency of 1800-2000 kcal. The calories per ration is 3600. The US Coast Guard standards are met. The temperature was -40 F to 300F. The temperature was -40 F to 300F.

Brand: Grizzly Gear

👤0 stars. Both of them are called Bilbo and Sitch. I bought one of the food ration to try before buying a case. This was supposed to be a sugar cookie. The mainstay coconut bars have a pictur for date. These were made on 12/14. 2 of the packs were damaged.

👤The two people on the left are vacuum sealed. The two on the right are not sealed. I bought a pack of bars. 3 of the 10 were not sealed properly, so I know they will last the 5 years. The other 7 were made in October of 2020, so they have been exposed to oxygen for almost five months. I would recommend to go with a different brand. I will have to reach out to the company to figure out how to deal with this situation.

👤We needed emergency food storage. I wanted to see what they tasted like. They smell like grease and reminded me of when I was younger. They don't taste like they smell. The taste is not that sweet. We could eat these if we needed to. I only gave four stars because of the smell. They're good. We will be buying another case soon.

👤Most of the low-star reviews say to check your product immediately after you receive it. The bars I ordered in January of last year were manufactured in 2016 so they burned through almost all of the shelf life. I assume that one of the bars was unsafe to eat because of the vacuum seal failure. Just sent it back. The product is great, but inventory management is poor.

👤I would love to give five stars. I contacted the seller to let them know I got 2 out of 10. It's been a week and no word back. The service was poor. Poor product. A few of mine were not labeled with an expiration date. This seems to happen a bit. If you're looking for 25 year shelf life, buy from someone else. I don't like to rely on these in an emergency.

👤Half of the packages are not strong. I don't know how long they last with air circulation. I have every reason to believe that half of them would last longer than five years. Half of them are not. I have to vacuum seal five of them because I have to finish the job on half.

👤The taste is not bad for what it is. It's pretty good like shortbread with a hint of lemon. They need to ship it better because the packaging is not strong. I ordered a set for myself and two friends, not my specialty. Each had at least one that the packaging was not long air tight. The bar is good, but they need to not just throw them in with no padding in the box. It might not be the biggest deal, considering the bulk I ordered, but nothing about how it was handled or the situation that may not happen in smaller batches, or replacement batches for the damaged one, should be taken into account.

4. Survival Tabs Emergency Preparedness Earthquake

Survival Tabs Emergency Preparedness Earthquake

The coconut flavor is great. Contain all of the essential vitamins and minerals. It is made with the highest quality meat. GLUTEN free and non-GMO. The 'Just in Case' food supply is a backup for natural disasters. This is the best nutrition in the smallest volume. When facing uncertainty, the body needs all the daily essential vitamins and minerals. The design makes it easy to store. One bottle can last up to 15 days. The 15-Day Supply is 1 container of 180 tablets. The calculation is based on an average person. Consumption requirements can be different from person to person. The flavor was strawberry. There are 180 tablets in a box and 12 chewable tablets with 20 calories per tab. The weight of the box is 1.8 lbs. The bottle dimensions are 7.5 x W 5 x D. The weight of the box is 1.8 lbs. The bottle dimensions are 7.5 x W 5 x D.

Brand: The Survival Tabs

👤I ordered 2 containers. I received a 15 day supply container and 5 bags of tabs. If my math is correct, I was shorted by 60 tabs.

👤I used a large package of these for a couple of weeks to fast. They work to take the edge off your hunger. There is a If you've ever tasted powdered coffee creamer, it's somewhat similar to the strawberry-cream taste, but better tasting. Twelve of the tablets have 100% of the USRDA of vitamins and minerals. If you only eat 12 of these, you're still getting vitamins and minerals, which is good for you. I haven't tried the other flavors yet, but if you like strawberries, coffee creamer and emergency ration, there's nothing wrong with them, except the price, which I'd like to see reduced.

👤I ordered two of them. I have to give a low rating because the seal on these containers are really substandard, and I want to love this product, but I have to give it a low rating. The bottles I ordered had broken seals. This was not caused by shipping because the box and contents are damage free. The big problem with the seal method is that the bottles are sealed with a round piece over the mouth of the container. The pop on/off top is covered in plastic. I opened the lid after cutting the plastic wrap off the top, but the inner seal was gone. The reason I bought them in the first place was because they would be a great product and this issue negates the 25 year shelf life. This kind of seal is not up to par. I returned both. I would like to point out that this manufacturer makes mylar bagging tablets in smaller quantities and higher per day price than these bottles. If you're like me, where the 25 year shelf life is essential for buying the product, then these containers are not enough to see this product live up to its claim. The plastic seal around the lid is not proof of proper seal of the contents. If they fix this issue, it could be a great product that I would buy several of because they are compact and unlike freeze dried food packs, they don't require water, which is fantastic.

👤I've been buying them for a while. If you have an electric stove, you can cook if the electric goes out. If the electric goes out during a storm and it takes a few weeks to get it back, everything in your fridge or freezer might go bad. If you have these, you will not be left starving. When you don't feel like eating, these will keep you going with the vitamins you need. These are good for hiking and camping when you can't take a lot of food. It's always a good idea to have them on hand in real emergencies. You can take these with you if you get flooded. These will still be good even if your items at home get ruined. They have the flavor. The flavor is not very strong. In times of need, you will be happy to have them. I've never had a bottle in 25 years. I have had them for a decade. They are a blessing. I would recommend them to anyone who is trying to prepare for survival. My adult son and I have relied on them for up to a month at a time when times were bad.

5. IRPRUS Original Emergency Replacement Preparedne

IRPRUS Original Emergency Replacement Preparedne

If you don't like the taste, they'll give you your money back. Russian army navy MRE daily diet is perfect for hunting and fishing. The three days of emergency power is a compact one kilo. Russian quality is just what helps survive. 5 years is the shelf life. The European system shows the date of production. Designed by Russian scientists for use in the most severe emergencies. Designed by Russian scientists for use in the most severe emergencies.

Brand: Irprus

👤I was wrong. It is worse than starving to death. That is eating the bars. They are made from flour sugar and fat. There are three bars and three o packs in each vacuum pack. The texture is not very smooth. It has an odd smell like shortening on the verge of turning. They have almost no flavour. For five years, they are goid. If you are caught in a zombie apocalypse, you will not be tempted to consume all these bars at once. The instructions are in English and Russian. They don't recommend drinking sea water. I will update my final pack in five years to see if they improve with age.

👤The bars are meant to keep a person from starving. I won't starve to death because it won't keep me full between meals. On one side is Russian text while on the other is English. I couldn't determine the calories, fat, sugar, or salt because this doesn't have a nutrition panel. If I'm starving and this is all I have, I'm not going to care about anything more than staying alive. The "ingredients" are wheat flour, sugar and fats, but they don't say what kind of sugar or fats they are. I had to cut it open because the tear strip tore above the sealed part. I had to pry the bars apart with a butter knife because they were stuck together. If these are part of your bug-out bag, you need to open the packet and pry the bars apart with a dull knife. They weren't great, but they weren't the worst thing I've eaten. I might get more because they weigh less and that will make carrying my bug-out bag easier.

👤The food in Russia was terrible but delicious. Russia is famous for one dish that is really good. A dish from Russia has moved to other countries. You cannot. Borscht is known only in Russia, and not one other country has a variation of it. I have not eaten it since I left Russia, and I did not like it when I ate it there. We are here. We have been given emergency food ratios by Russia. I got caught up in the moment and didn't address the obvious. The country with no great or mostly good food decided to share its emergency ratios with the world. There was no way this could end well. I'm going to say the punchline. The ratios smell like old fashioned soap and taste like it. The soap is used to get your mouth washed out. In Russia, old soap and Crisco are a delicacy. I wouldn't put it past them. I warn you, My Fellow American, that regardless of the price or the intrigue of having Russian ratios, you will not eat these. Not under any circumstances. They won't save your life if you have been in the woods for 3 weeks without food.

👤The emergency food was difficult to open. They can be kept for a long time without worry of decay. They have a weird smell of fried chicken when you first open them and it tastes like something you'd find in a store. Each package has three bars and was included in the order. The texture is like a hard cookie with a beige color. We had difficulty unsticking the food parts because they were stuck together. The ingredients are wheat, flour, sugar, and fat. It's all over. If you use your imagination, they look like a slice of white fruit cake or even worse, a poorly prepared divinity. They didn't mix up the ingredients. The writing on them is mostly English and Russian, but it doesn't give a lot of information. When ordering on Amazon, you can't choose the date because these last up to 5 years. I believe ours was made only 8 months before we got them. There's no information about calories or grams of fat. The packet says to accept food at a strong feeling of famine. I don't think anyone would eat these unless they were really starving. You don't have to worry about other people snacking on them when there isn't a famine because you have bought and stored them away. It doesn't seem like this would do much if there is a famine. You don't need vitamins C or calcium to stay healthy. Each pack is supposed to provide enough food for a day. The packaging is light and small. I would only use them for a short time. The purpose is to use them so you don't starve. These are insufficient in other situations.

Brand: Quakehold!

👤I was going to do a trial run to see how well I would do. The water came up a day short, but I was surprised at how much energy the bars provide. I was not worse for living on the bars for 3 days. I'm a guy who camps for 5 months out of the year and I highly recommend this kit.

👤I received 2 boxes quickly. The items in the box were not what the online description said they were. The boxes only had 4 waters. The waters were not approved by the US Coast Guard and were in a juice box. The food bar was not manufactured by Mayday. I decided to return them because they were not what they were advertised to be.

👤The ration bars have a shelf life of 5 years. The kits only come with 4 small water boxes and not 6 pouches as advertised. The ration bars are not the same as pictured. Several customers have had the same issue and the description needs to be updated. We aren't relying solely on these kits to survive an emergency.

👤These were replacements for expired items I bought for my family. The bar and water will be gone in April 2023. The outer box has an expired date. Grandson noticed that it said each person should drink four water packets a day. 6 packets are not enough for 3 days. The water is clear and delicious. It would be better for me to buy a case of water packets next time and count out the number of bags per person.

👤There's one big problem with this box, it's a good start to a 3-day bag. There is not enough water in one box for 3 days. There is a survival blanket, a food ration, and six water packs in this box. You would think you would use two packs a day, but that's not the case. A person should use 4 packs per day according to the water. One box only gives you enough water for a single day. If you buy two boxes, you'll have enough water for 3 days, but that's not the point. If you are going to buy this box, you need to keep this in mind. You'll have to spend almost $30 to get enough water for three days, but the price is great. I found this box to be a good deal for my purposes, and I made preparedness bags as gifts. 6 for under $90. I had previously bought a box of emergency drinking water pouches from mayday for $32 and I found this to be the better deal for me. I could add the recommended amount of water packs for 3 days per person. The boxes were all in a large box. The rest of the supplies were in great condition, and only one was missing a blanket. The replacement arrived the next day, and the exchange process was easy. The replacement box was shipped in a thin plastic bag, so no real protection, luckily it wasn't damaged. The boxes and packages had different dates on them. I circled the part that says 4 pouches per person per day and added photos of some of the different dates.

7. Datrex Emergency Survival Water Pouch

Datrex Emergency Survival Water Pouch

Can draw from almost any fresh water source. The water is lightweight and extremely compact. Individual sachets are ideal for storage. 60 ft3 (1.70 m3) is the pallet volume. It's easy to put in a survival kit with a pre-measured sachet. Such, Canadian Coast guard, EC and New Zealand approval.

Brand: Datrex

👤I am a prepper nerd and I have been checking the water being sold in these small pouches. Many are just tap water and bags. The total dissolved solids are referred to as theTDS. I have seen a range from 100-300 parts per million. The water is pure. I did a simple test here and the lab tested it and both came out as 4 parts per million. The purity of the water is 10 parts per million. The soft taste and slightly acidic PH of around 5 is what Reverse Osmosis Water has been heavily Filters through for taste. Very happy with the package.

👤I received a case of water with an expired date on it. The bottom of the box was wet, so I knew we had a leak when I put the case with my emergency storage. When I opened the case to look for the leaking packet of water, I found that all but 19 of the 64 packs had expired by the time I received the package. The other 19 were older. They had a date in the future. One of the 2 water paks that were unexpired had a leak. It was as if this company tried to hide the expired water in a different case and then placed enough paks over the top of those to try to pass it off as okay. They would have fooled me if one of the packs had not leaked. This company was dishonest.

👤We bought a box of these to distribute among our bags. We haven't tasted it yet, but we hope we never have. It doesn't sound romantic to drink out of a plastic packet. I'm happy to have it. It looks like it's a great backup for water in your house, car, bug out bags, whatever you can think of. Many of them come in a box and are very affordable. If you need some water in an emergency, you can distribute them among the various areas of your life. The packets are very lightweight and durable. I think it's very sturdy and should be cut with a knife to puncture it. They arrived quickly, packaged well and were a good value. We are looking forward to never using them. My wife and I found this one to be the best emergency water out there, but there are many other brands, and you can find a different one that you like better. Other options include water tablets, water bottles, and so on. Depending on your circumstances, you may want to look at other options. I am very happy with what we received and I look forward to never having to use them.

👤This is a big part of my bags and I want to give it 5 stars. There were two pouches inside the box. There were no visible tears or cuts on the bags, they just leaked out of the seals. The book that Amazon had packed in the same box was damaged when the water leaked out of the box. They were packing a book in the same box as a case of water. The water in the undamaged pouch is fine. The one I opened was packed in the year of 2017: it was fresh and clean.

8. Pure Protein Nutritious Support Variety

Brand: Pure Protein

👤I've been buying these bars for a while. They have been an excellent product. The bar has been slowly decreasing over the past year. I didn't mind initially but now it's gotten out of hand. The original bar's size has been chopped away and there's more wrapper hanging than before. I am very disappointed in PureProtein for thinking they can cut costs without consumer's notice. Let's see how much they care about their bottom-line when they start losing customers. I've begun to buy from the company.

👤I ate my first bar from this order. The first quarter of the chocolate peanut butter bar was very good. I bit down on a paper-like material. The other bars in the other packages should be free of surprises.

👤I can't do much in the way of exercising anymore because I'm confined to a power chair. I was gaining weight. I talked to my niece who is a nurse and she helped me learn to eat better. She recommended these bars because she said I needed more meat in my diet. I love them! They give me a lot of nutrition, they taste good, and they curb the sweet cravings. I'm down 18 pounds after 10 months.

👤What is that? This plastic is not good for you! I was in the middle.

👤If you're new to this brand and want to try a few flavors, this might be a good choice, but in my opinion only the chocolate peanut butter is good enough for me to buy again. The chocolate chip has a metallic aftertaste, and the chocolate deluxe tastes like a sandy tootsie role. Other flavors available on Amazon are about $1/bar, so choosing this one isn't really saving any money over other options. The dark chocolate coconut and chocolate peanut caramel flavors are good choices.

👤I love to bake as much as I love to eat. It's a perfect combination for packing on the pounds and putting myself at risk of Type II Diabetes in my family. I have seen remarkable results from changing just two things in my diet, since I read about it in The Drinking Man's Diet. I've lost 20 lbs., gotten my blood sugar under control, and have stable blood sugar. The first change was to eliminate as much sugar as possible and the second was to increase my intake of meat and dairy products. The bars turned out to be our favorite after several attempts. The taste and convenience are appealing to us. They are on the list as a regular item. It took about four months for the cravings to go away, but once it was over, it was done. These bars taste sweet enough to stop cravings, while the sodas taste nasty.

👤The best bars for the price are the PureProtein bars. They use a variety of different types of milk and whey products. The bars in the multipack range from 20-21g of protein, and 180- 200 calories. There is some sugar alcohol, but don't eat too much of it at the same time. There is a blend of vitamins and minerals in these bars. They don't use the best absorbing versions of each of these vitamins, but they are taking them in with food so there is a slight better absorption. The taste is not great. You have to remember that you are eating a bar for the benefits, not a bar for a snack. This will not be as good as a Snickers bar, but it will be a pretty good bar, and I think it will be good. These things have a good look for getting some food in. 20-21g of fat, 6-16g of fat, and 2g of fiber. It's nice for people who have trouble stuffing food down to know that they are small. The flavor was 4/5. The chocolate chip and chocolate deluxe are both delicious. The chocolate peanut butter tastes like it was made by an off- brand. If you aren't used to eating bars like that, you may think they're a little "mushy" or "chewy". These are not candy bars. The product has a texture that is 888-609- The value is 5. The best value for a milk/whey bar I could find was these. Every bar that is close to the price contains soy, and every bar that is close to the price contains milk orhey. The bars would be ranked at a 5. I think these are the best bars because of the solid ingredient list and the fact that they are a little better than other bars. I would recommend these to anyone who is trying to get more calories in their diet. The only better option is a bar, but that doesn't pack as well.

9. Katadyn NRG 5 Emergency Food Ration

Katadyn NRG 5 Emergency Food Ration

The weight of the box is 1.8 lbs. The bottle dimensions are 7.5 x W 5 x D. Emergency food ration is in waterproof packs and in a convenient pocket size. The biscuits are compressed high energy. Relief operations during natural or man-made disasters, emergency preparedness, outdoor activities, and as a food supplement are some of the uses of the NRG-5 ration. The air sealed packaging has a shelf life of 20 years. A 500g pack contains 9 individual bars with an energy value of 260 kcal each, which are vacuum-welded together in an aluminum foil. A 500g pack offers more than an average daily emergency of 1800-2000 kcal.

Brand: Katadyn

👤I bought two of them, one to try and the other to store for emergencies. Emergency ration bars are not meant for fun or very enjoyable situations. They're meant to provide energy and calories to keep you alive in a disaster. They're manageable if you're not picky. They're cheaper than most others, and better packed, and will take up less space. If you're careful, you can break off small pieces to eat without getting crumbs everywhere. They are wrapped individually in a vacuum sealed pack. If the sealed thing remains open, they will last up to 25 years. Have some water with you. If you don't have anything to drink, they'll be hard to eat. It's very unlikely for them to rot or mold because they have no water in them, which is a good thing. An economical emergency-pack choice. The box says it's made in Germany. I had some over a couple days. I had them as morning snacks to get me up and going, and maybe give me more energy to make more food. At first, they're not bad. If you chew slowly and don't rush yourself to choke it down, you will produce enough saliva to make it decent. Going slower is better for your digestion. So. I started to like it and was a little disappointed that I didn't have more to snack on. I had no issues after that. I think they're a good choice. They have a lot of sugar overall. What do you think the purpose of these is? These aren't fancy healthy meals you make from stuff you bought at WholeFoods. They're ration bars. It's meant to keep you alive long enough to get home in an emergency. Jeez, yeah. You're not supposed to eat them all the time. Some people don't know what survival ration is.

👤The survival ration is 25 years shelf stable and temperature stable. It's perfect to put in your boat, cabin or wherever you need it. If you want something that's not boring while you enjoy yourself at the gym or do selfies on a trail, go somewhere else. It tastes like a bag of mini wheats. It's designed to keep you alive if things get bad. Period. You need to make sure you have water in hand before you eat it, it will seriously dry your mouth out. There is no way to reseal it after opening it, so keep it in a bag. This is a survival ration. It is necessary to have shelf stability and ease of use in an emergency. It's not something that it is, stop trying to make it that way.

👤It is a good idea to trade calories for shelf live over life raft ration. I usually get 3600 calories life raft ration for $8 but they only have a 5 year shelf life. The flavor is ok but you will need water to drink. It is the equivalent of eating sweetened chalk. We don't buy these for a Saturday afternoon snack, but we do buy them for emergencies and for the calories, shelf live, and price they are well worth the investment.

👤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.

👤I received one that wasn't sealed, after seeing other reviews about faulty packaging. I was going to open it to see if I liked it before buying more. The foil was folded and cracked because of the vacuum seal against the inner bars. The foil is thick and has a plastic layer inside that makes a good seal. The foil and plastic is very hard to open and it was difficult to open the package with the tear notch. I got a knife to open the package the rest of the way because I was a strong guy. The bars are the same size as your off the shelf bars. They are wrapped with thin plastic and wouldn't trust it to hold in crumbs. Take small bites and chew completely according to the directions. The coconut flavor is strong, as others have said. The texture is like oily corn meal. The oil isn't overwhelming, it's just so that you don't dry out your mouth. The bar is a bit hard, but the crumbs fall off when you bite into it. I wouldn't want to eat these often, but they are for emergency purposes. They would taste like a juicy steak if I were really hungry. When you're starving, taste is ok, but watch out for punctured seal, it's used for when you're not going for regular meals.

👤It was much smaller than I expected. It was surprisingly good. Not great, but good. It was like an off-brand cookie. It's very sweet, but I can't handle much more than a bite of the cookie bar. I drink water to cut the sweet taste. A point or sharp edge is required to pierce the tough packaging. I would be happy to eat this in an emergency situation and it is small enough to fit in a backpack or a boat. I have verified that I could live with eating them, so I'm going to get more for my kit. Purchasing this is a wise choice and you won't regret it when you are stuck in your car during a white out, without supplies after a Hurricane, or stranded on a dead boat at sea.

👤The S.O.S 3600 Calorie Food Bar had the greatest packaging and was one of the major emergency food ration bars. The mylar packaging is tough and tightly sealed. We dropped a full package from a four story building onto a sidewalk and it held up without cracking or penetrating the packaging. The package was put in salt water for seven days and six nights and it tasted like it was in the ocean. We tasted it for five days in the cold and snow. If you leave it in the environment for a year or so, it won't have that new taste, so it's made to be stored and provided in case of an emergency. The food is seperated into nine bars in which each is packaged in plastic once you open the mylar packaging. They have a cinnamon - coconut cookie flavor to them and are very good, they are a survival food that is good what more can you ask for. The food is not bad and it will not dry out your mouth when you eat it, so you can live longer without food than you can without water. The shelf life of this product is five years, which is great because of the ideal storage conditions. This product is great for your home survival kit or vehicle emergency kit as they are heavy for a backpack. We will purchase more of these in the future.
