Whats not listed on the site but only requires some basic math is the total calories per bag, as opposed to what they call a serving size. Simply put at 260 calories for a one cup serving of the Cheesy Lasagna as their numbers suggest I simply cant see this sufficing as a meal for anyone, not even a child. Now lets look at the total of 520 calories for the whole bag and this is starting to look more like a meal. Add to that some Wise fruit and vegetables three times a day and now we have a very good days menu.
My point is this. Assuming 2000 calories a day for me and 1800 for her. After crunching the total numbers for my wife and myself each of these "60 serving" buckets amount to about 30 real servings. Three servings a day times the two of us and we come to about 5 days of actual emergency food.
Where does that leave us? Well simply put it leaves us with two buckets of entrees plus one of the freeze dried fruit and one of the vegetables for a total of about 10ish days worth of emergency food.
All this assumes that we have no other food to eat. The fact is we also have a pantry of canned goods ranging from pineapple for vitamin C to Ravioli for fat and calories. All of which could be eaten right out of the can and is rotated weekly as we buy more and move the old to the kitchen.Read more ›
All these companies use the term “serving.” With regard to these food packets this word “serving” means absolutely nothing. I believe they would like you to think it means meal but for that to be true you would have to define what a meal is and I’m going to define it right now.
It is pretty much agreed that the average person, in a more or less sedate lifestyle needs 2000 calories a day to survive. If you eat three meals a day you need approximately 667 calories per meal to equal the 2000 daily minimum. An active soldier needs more and children and old people need more. During the battle of Stalingrad the food was limited to a frozen block that was comprised of flour and sawdust. The first people that died were the children and the old people.
Ok, so all the food supplied below has nutritional information on the packed including calories so one can determine the total calories in the box and then divide that number into the cost of the box and determine the cost per calorie from each supplier. You can also divide the total calories per box by 667 and get the total meals that can be obtained from the box assuming you eat some which equates to 667 calories three times a day.
4/4/15 I'm adding a new seller 'EMERGENCY ESSENTIALS. They sell mostly freeze dried stuff which has a 25 year or longer life span. They also have the widest assortment of vegetables, fruits, and entrees, that I have seen. You might litterally want to build meals from the ala cart list especially if you have a bunch of different people you are buying for.Read more ›
I have a couple of comments and questions about this product:
1) The shelf life claims to be 20 years, but I cannot tell EXACTLY what this means. Does the shelf life have anything to do with breaking the seal of the overall container or is it in reference to the individual packages inside? I opened the container. Does this mean that my shelf life has been shortened?
2) When I opened the main container I immediately smelled spices and food flavoring. I was expecting to smell nothing. This seemed to indicate that one or more of the individual packages was opened or at least punctured. They all seem to be intact, so perhaps the smell was sealed in during manufacture.
3) I am disappointed that each individual packet contains 4 SERVINGS! I was not expecting this. I was expecting 8 packets for 8 servings of Beef Stroganoff, for example. Instead you get 2 packets that contain 4 servings each. This is a disappointment for those intending to use these for camping... unless you are feeding a family.
4) I tried the Beef Stroganoff and it was adequate. I'm not really tempted to dig into the other packet, but I would certainly eat it again sometime in the future.Read more ›
