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:

My friends ask, "What do you need 3-days of food in your car for?" so I tell them just in case, because if I explained all the terrible things that could possibly happen at any given moment, they'd feel uncomfortable and I'd look paranoid.

-15 bucks
-6 Days of Food
-Lasts up to 5 years.

Because McDonald's won't be there when your dying.

Size Name: Case of 2 Verified Purchase
I have several stashes (office, home, car, storage locker) of emergency rations and several 'bug-out' bags as I cannot be certain where I'll be if and when the poop hits the propeller.
I have had to re-order this item on several occasions to replenish my office stash as I keep snacking on the darn things.
Several Points:
1) The 'brick' is aluminized plastic vacuum wrapped around 18 individually wrapped bars.
2) The brick is heavier than you would expect as the moisture content is very low to allow a tightly packed food source in minimal space.
3) Due to the low moisture content you will want a liquid to drink although the bars themselves DO NOT enhance thirst.
4) Once the outer wrapper has been breached, the 5 year shelf life is no longer applicable. The individual bars are wrapped in ultra thin cellophane.
5) The 18 separate bars TOTAL 3600 calories. The Three day calculation is bases on 1,200 calories per day (3 meals a day for 3 days at 2 bars per meal).
6) For those of you who rightly observe that 1,200 calories per day is below the prescribed minimum...keep in mind these bars are coast guard approved emergency rations. They are MISSION SPECIFIC. I.E.: They were designed for the relatively low caloric consumption of sitting, inactive, in a life boat while awaiting rescue.
That fact, however, does not diminsh the wisdom of having a supply on hand for emergencies and/or bug-out ration suppliments.

One Complaint: as I mentioned before, they use a thin cellophane wrap on each bar (no doubt to further minimize bulk of packaging).
The problem is that it is a B*TCH to unwrap. If you do it wrong, the bar will crumble. My technique is to sliide the side of a pocket knife around the flat side of the bar (Much like you were honing the knife on a whet stone) until the edge of the knife catches the edge of the wrapper and then gently work the wrapper off.
Bon Appetit'

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
