Here's my thoughts. As other reviews state, this is not 275 servings sealed in 275 bags. It's actually 55 bags with 5 servings each. This probably isn't the only solution for food storage out there as people's specific food needs can vary. Again, if you are considering this you are probably thinking of only a few scenarios where you would ever use this, and you are probably buying it as an insurance policy thus hoping you don't have to use it. With a 20 year shelf life, if stored properly, it lasts far longer than canned groceries and would work for that.
So I think there is a place for a couple of these buckets on hand. Think of them as your long term food solution. Stack it in a dark, cool place in the basement and forget it. But I definitely wouldn't go overboard. You need to consider your short term food storage needs. While these are great and I recommend them, they aren't super cost effective or varied enough for a short term emergency food solution.
What I do for my family and what I recommend for you is that you augment these with a good dose of canned goods and other normal groceries and household items that your family already uses. Most canned goods last 2-3 years and can be rotated into your normal stock at any time.Read more ›
That's less than I expected out of 275 servings, but this is still a huge, cheap, long lasting bucket of food. I haven't tasted any of the food, nor do I plan to for the next 19 years or so :) For now I'm definitely still glad I bought it!
+ Convenient Storage; comes packed in a 5 gallon bucket
+ Convenient Packaging; each meal comes in 5 serving foil pouches (see picture in "Customer Images") and, at least for the Potato Soup, that is accurate
+ Good Flavor; my family was actually somewhat surprised about how good the Potato Soup tasted
+ Filling; the heavy carb load on these (19g to 40g) makes for a filling meal (the Potato soup thickened nicely)
+ Easy to Make; just add water (we have stored one week of water and have several water purification methods)
+ 20 Year Shelf Life; we put this in our basement next to our "Bug-out Bag"
- We tried the Potato Soup because the edge of it was slightly opened where it was trapped under the lid, but all of the others were properly sealed
- Hard to remove the storage bucket lid, we had to use pliers, a screwdriver, and wire cutters to get it off
- 5 servings per pouch doesn't really work too well for our family of four since once it is open it would hard to store and later prepare, so we have taken that into account and will just divide each one four ways
This is one of the items that we hope to never actually need, but is comforting to have on hand.
As for the price going up after the Japan disaster, if you search online for emergency food products you will soon find that there is an 8 week plus backlog in orders from almost every supplier out there. People are waking up to the fact that the security we have enjoyed in the United States is currently just not there. But it's not JUST Japan. There is a food shortage and food prices are increasing all over the world, oil prices are skyrocketing which causes transportation costs to go up, the Middle East is exploding, most national economies are struggling, and the US dollar is in a free fall. It's all coming home. The US has been typically isolated from these things but that is changing and changing quickly. So yes, as the law of supply and demand dictates, prices are going up and this is more reason to buy now while you still can. Because believe me when I say that we haven't seen anything yet. It's only going to get worse!
I have a store of about 6 months of everyday canned and box food as well as supplies of Pinto beans, rice, flour, etc that we use and rotate. If food prices continue to go up significantly or there is a disruption in supply we are covered for a while. I also have 6 or more months of long term storage food with a 15 to 25 year shelf life.Read more ›
