Its like a coconut flavored shortbread cookie.
Stephen Marsh
They are individually wrapped and you will need a sharp edge to get them open without having them fall apart.
Jon
I keep them in my 72 hour grab-and-go bag in case of an emergency evacuation.

Size Name: Case of 1 Verified Purchase
In the description it made it sound like I was going to get a case of these emergency food bars. I only received one package with 18 bars in it (not individually wrapped). This vendor is way overpriced on this compared to others. I should have searched more because there are others selling at half the price. This might be a decent product but for something that seems so simple, I think the price should be closer to five bucks.

Here are the details from the package:

Size Name: Case of 1
This stuff is kinda tasty, stays fresh for a long time, and packs small.

I suggest it for any survival kit where space is limited but still available. In other words, get cheaper bulkier stuff for your home. (Mountain House Hardtack is good there, along with some peanut butter and canned goods). This is for your car, boat, plane, or office. It's standard issue in many lifeboats. It does not require cooking and is moist enough so that it's not thirst provoking.

*WARNING!* Contains coconut, and not just a trace. Do NOT buy or consume if you have coconut allergies! I had a friend break out in hives just for being in the same room!

Once you open the vacuum sealed wrapper you have to consume all the bars within that package. The label states the bars will last up to one month after opening, however, if your emergency only lasted one day you will waste the rest of the bars. Good for 3 day emergency kits since they last un-opened for 5 years.

I'll start with a bit of perspective. This is a survival item. And as such must be portable, durable, does what it's design to do....in this case, keep you from starving to death. For that it does a good job.

With that said, the flavor is good....like a shortbread cookie. Texture seems dry (crumbles easily) but don't confuse that thirst provoking, it does not. I ate 2 portions without a drop of water. The downside of the crumbliness is that it's possibly messy until you get the hang of it. Watch out for crumbs. You don't want to attract animals, insects, zombies, whatever. The individual plastic wrapped 200 calorie portions is a welcomed feature. The upside is minimal chewing. In a survival situation, not having to chew is a plus....trust me.

The high caloric content per pack is good. But compare to other emergency bars it doesn't have as much needed vitamins and minerals. Then again, you're not suppose to live off them, just stay alive long enough to make it back to a real meal.

If you are putting together a 72 hour Bug out Bag or Survival bag, forget filling it with canned food, energy bars or MREs. You can survive for a very long time without food. You will die if you don't have enough water.

I have boxes of MREs, canned food and water for months, ammunition, weapons and all the Survival gear you can think of, in my detached garage. That is for my long term survival supplies.

My medium term survival gear is in my Mini Van. Those supplies will last my family at least a week. So it is the trimmed down version of what is in my garage.

Then in my 72 hour bag, I have emergency gear, and 8 Datrex packs for 4 people. You do not need 2000 calories per day to survive. I used to eat only 1600 calories a day. I can survive on 1/2 a pack a day and not really feel hungry. If you really want to survive a catastrophic event, you have to start training yourself to eat less so that your system will not go into shock if you suddenly have to cut your caloric intake. When I was on weight watchers, they kept me on 1600-1800 calories a day just to maintain my weight.

Canned food is heavy, and not advisable for carrying as you will use up needed calories and water just carrying it. Power bars are not packaged efficiently, so it tends to use up a little bit more space. The goal of the bug out bag is to keep you alive. You need to be able to move, and move quickly. You cannot be carrying heavy things, except for water.

This is what I have in my Teton Explorer 4000 with internal Frame BOB:

1. 8 Datrex 3600 packs.
2. 2 Crank Flashlights.
3. Motorola Emergency MR350 Radios.
4. GERBER bear Grylls Ultimate Survival Knife(Flint, Knife Sharpener, Survival Knife,Whistle in one package)
5.
