This 2400 calorie Emergency Food Ration from Mainstay is ready to eat with no preparation required. This bar is divided into 6 pre-measured 400 calorie segments. Individualized portions eliminate the messy breaking-up that occurs with other bars. These non-thirst provoking emergency food rations have a pleasant lemon flavor that is appealing to everyone. They hold up in extreme temperature of between -40° F and 300°F (-40°C to 149°C) and contain no cholesterol or tropical oils. Mainstay Emergency Food Rations are enriched with vitamins and minerals that exceed the RDA requirements. In addition, Mainstay Emergency Food Bars safe for those allergic to nuts, contain no meat products and are Kosher and meet the dictates for Halal.
These Emergency Food Rations are approved by the United States Coast Guard and have a 5 year shelf life.
I purchased a 14-day supply of the 2400 calorie/day food rations for my husband's "survival" kit in the event of a major earthquake. Our home is directly on the San Andreas fault. Neither of us have tasted the ration and probably won't until we have to. The only negatives I have are: 1. although each bar is small and compact, all 14 bars together are very heavy; and 2. their shelf life is only 5 years.
2400 Food ration

Kids and I tried the rations as a practice. Was like eating a dense cupcake; not sweet, but not dry either. Not sure how long 400calories of energy (one square) would last us in an emergency but we did not feel like we were still hungry after eating one either. Shelf life of 5 years is great, as there no need to worry about it for a while.
Hoping we never have to use the rations, but we're comfortable in case we do.
Great way to replace outdated food and water

Perfect way to update the expired water and food in our Emergency Kits!!
Count them out and replace, how easy is that?
It's better than spending money on full replacement cost of an Emergency back-pack.
Don't forget to also replace the glow sticks!!
