The 2,400 calorie ER Bar is a 72-hour emergency ration formulated specifically for disaster victims. Each packet contains six individual 410 calorie rations that are ready-to-eat with no preparation. The ER bar is formulated with an optimum balance of salt, carbohydrates, protein, fat and enriched with the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals. One 2,400 calorie ER Bar can minimally sustain an average person up to three days if necessary, but it’s advisable to evaluate the needs of your family and prepare accordingly. Following a disaster, food supplies may become disrupted, stores closed and power outages could last for days. Survival experts recommend storing a three-day supply of non-perishable food per person to prepare for emergencies. Store ER Bars in multiple locations for easy access to essential nutrition in an emergency. The special re-sealable package is vacuum sealed and certified by the U.S. Coast Guard to maintain freshness for up to 5 years. ER bars contain no coconut or nuts which may cause dangerous allergic reactions when no medical aid is available. Non thirst provoking formula.
From the Manufacturer
ER - Emergency Ready Brand, by Quake Kare: Quake Kare, Inc. is the industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of emergency preparedness kits in the U.S. After moving to ""earthquake country"" in 1982, Sherry Heitz, founder and chairman, recognized the lack of available comprehensive, prepackaged emergency kits in America's earthquake capital. She was disturbed by how many trips she had to make put everything together. She had to find food and water that would store safely and survive extreme temperature changes, shelter, first aid, lights, radios, sanitation, and search/rescue supplies. As a concerned mother put in charge of her children's schools' disaster preparedness, she spoke to other parents who shared similar frustrations. ""Why isn't there one place to go to buy all the emergency supplies you need to prepare for a disaster?""
Using her business background and Community Emergency Preparedness Training (CERT), Sherry set out to fulfill that need and started Quake Kare and pioneered the ""earthquake kit."" Today, this woman-owned company has proudly served thousands of International/Federal/ State Agencies, School Districts Nation-Wide, Fortune 500 Companies and Non-Profit Organizations and partnered with organizations worldwide to minimize the impact of disasters. Quake Kare's staff of CERT trained survival experts remains dedicated to Sherry's principle of providing quality, comprehensive emergency preparedness supplies for all disasters and locations at affordable prices in order to make our communities safer. Being an industry leading manufacturing and wholesaling company, Quake Kare is able to offer the most reliable products and competitive prices.

Top customer reviews
I tried one, and it is basically a VERY DENSE, thick, mildly sweet short bread. It is very filling and the taste is very mild.
GOOD FOR EMERGENCY:
These rations would serve very well for an emergency situation, especially since they can probably withstand extreme temperatures, at least a lot better than many other foods would. Great food to keep in the car. Like the description says, they don't make you feel like you need a drink, amazingly enough.
EASY TO OPEN/ZIP CLOSE:
It has a top than you tear off, (no scissors or knife needed to open, and it opens very easily for me, who is a person who often has a hard time opening things), and it has a zip close.
It's basically a brick that breaks into 6 pieces, each piece is a serving. Recommended at least 2 servings per day, I believe. I included a couple pics, next to a soda can for size reference (I had no clue how big they were gonna be before I bought them).
How is the packaging?
The packaging is fairly sturdy and has a resealable top. It is vacuum sealed, so make sure you don't puncture it, otherwise the shelf life will be drastically reduced.
Is it easy to eat?
As mentioned in other reviews, the block is not separately packaged into 6 individual units. Instead, the block has indents separating the sections, which can easily be broken by bending the package. The foodstuff itself is a light yellow, and really doesn't feel all that much different from a thick blondie. Biting into it does reveal a crumbly side, but it's not overly thick, nor is it difficult to bite or chew through. In fact, nothing about the eating process made it seem all that weird. Because the food doesn't feel too heavy, if you underestimate it and eat it too fast, the effects of its high calorie density might make you feel a little queezy. Eat slowly!
How does it taste?
The product has a very mild lemon flavor to it. Considering how much fat it has, you might think it tastes horrid. On the contrary, while you might not finish it and say it was the best lemon bar you've ever eaten it, you won't cough it up and think its disgusting. Besides, in the right conditions, anything will taste amazing.
Thirst Prevention: I sampled this item after about 22 hours of no food or drink. The product is high in fats and oils, which does in fact make it less thirst producing. After I was done eating, I did not feel much thirstier than when I started. That is not to say, however, that the desire to drink did not come simply as a result of having something pasty in the mouth and throat.
Is it safe or healthy to eat?
So I finished my graduate degree in nutrition at one of those fancy IVY league schools, but I'll be the first to say I don't know everything. In regards to this product however, keep in mind that it is an emergency food and is not designed to sustain you for long periods of time. There is a very high fat value, which is a great source of calories. In an emergency this is great, but over the long haul, the body will respond negatively to the imbalance of carbs, proteins and fats.
Contrary to popular belief, not all saturated fats are that bad for you. Palm oil, the major source of fat in this product, is comprised mostly of oleic, linoleic and palmitic fatty acids. Myristic acid is the one that is most bad for you, and seems mostly absent. So, while eating tons of calories in the form of fat is unhealthy in the long run, you don't have to freak out simply because each serving is 45% of your daily saturated fat allowance.
What about them vitamins?
The addition of vitamins is an interesting idea. In the short term, (3 days or so) the human body will experience very few, if any, vitamin deficiencies. The main priority is to obtain enough calories, and then protein, in order to reduce the degrading your own body for energy. That being said, this food is a great tool in rescue operations, as those who have been lost and on their own for some time may have easily developed vitamin deficiencies during that time. So, while it's nice to have, the fortification of these nutrients plays a minimal role in an emergency situation where you plan to use this product for only three to four days.
Overall this product is great. I have also performed nutrient analyses on other emergency foods, but I won't include them here. If you're interested, I'm sure you can contact me somehow via amazon.
