  • Supermarket Survival Food.

    It's been said that, the best way to prep your food supplies is to add a few extra items to your shopping list and put them away for worst days. I also have contemplated making my own MREs with posts like this one, http://www.myprepperforum.com/forum/...mres-4-pennies So I wanted to start a thread that would explore those things we find in the supermarket and beyond to contribute to our preps. However with the one caveat that we come across them in our normal shopping.

    I'll go first.

    Tuna Creations http://starkist.com/products/pouches#anchor-28 I just don't like the low caloric content. Not sure if they work post shtf?

    Not a stellar find, as all tuna is survival ready but the flavors is what attracted me. Survival food can be boring. A healthy spice rack, is a must for preppers

    It is protein, thus not as many calories as carbs...if you add in the pilot crackers you will have more calories. I have stored tuna in Mylar pouches that a friend of mine has done straight off of his fishing vessel in Oregon. Also have cases of canned from another fisherman in California. Beautiful products and no added chemicals.
    i have been rethinking my food storage this week, I started a few years back with the menu method, and purchased a year worth of those particular items (over time) and have found that I had lots of stuff. So now I am trying a more minimalist approach by purchasing basics and making my own meals and mixes. For example, powdered milk can make yoghurt, cheese, cream, ice cream, sourcream, evaporated milk, condensed milk etc. so by buying the canned powdered milk I can eliminate all the other stuff. The same goes for oats, I can make cookies, flour, cereal, granola, and oatmeal rather than purchasing them individually.

      I think powdered milk is overlooked by some as well as instant potatoes and canned meats. Recently, I've even seen some companies trying to sell "survival meat" in cans, for insane amounts of money. They say they will last up to 5 years and that what makes them worth the money http://survivalcavefood.com/mixed-ca...8-oz-cans.html The thing is that, all canned food has about the same shelf life. So buying these so called survival meats is a waste
