Disaster can strike at anytime. Depending on the situation you might not have access to food. Roads could be blocked or maybe the stores have been looted by wild monkeys in the streets. Whatever the case, knowing you have a steady supply of food at hand will give you peace of mind in a state of total chaos. I’ve tested and reviewed many emergency survival food kits on the market.
Below is a list of the kits I’ve found to be fully loaded with great tasting food at a decent price point.
1.) Mountain House “Just in Case” Essential Bucket
For a drop dead basic survival kit, you can’t go wrong with this bucket from Mountain House Foods. They’ve been in the backpacking industry for years, providing high quality foods you can take with you camping. This kit is an extension of these great tasting meals. The bucket contains 32 Servings; 4 pouches each of Mountain House Rice & Chicken, Chili Mac with Beef, and Spaghetti with Meat Sauce.
A single person could eat modestly for a month or 2 people could eat for 2 weeks. Grab a few of these bad boys and save them for a rainy day. They have a 30 year taste guarantee so don’t worry about them going bad anytime soon!
2.) Wise Company Large Serving Package Buckets
WISE company is another heavy hitter in the emergency food supply industry. They’ve been around the block and have many emergency food kits available. You can select either a 40 pound (2 buckets) or 62 pound (3 buckets) supply. They have the foods split up into breakfast and dinner items. Each sealed Mylar pouch in the 40lb option contains 4 servings of the following foods: Savory Stroganoff (12 Servings) – Three Cheese Macaroni (12 Servings) – Pasta Alfredo (12 Servings) – Creamy Pasta and Vegetable Rotini (12 Servings) – Teriyaki and Rice (12 Servings) – Cheesy Lasagna (12 Servings) – Creamy Ala King and Rice (12 Servings) – Chili Macaroni (12 Servings) – Tomato Basil Soup (12 Servings) – Hearty Tortilla Soup (12 Servings) – Apple Cinnamon Cereal (40 Servings) – Brown Sugar and Maple Multi-Grain Cereal (40 Servings) – Crunchy Granola (40 Servings)
Great tasting stuff. Perfect for emergencies.
3.) Patriot Pantry Emergency Food Supply
One thing you’ll notice about Patriot Pantry is all their foods taste home made. While the other foods on this list are definitely tasty, they don’t come close to Patriot Pantry quality. This particular kit is a 3 month survival package for a single adult. It’s a well thought kit too including desserts, snacks, and drinks. While it’s technically for a single person, you can do the math to figure out how many could survive and for how long.
4.) Augason Farms Freeze Dried Fruits and Veggies
I know preppers tend to be more “meat and potatos” types so I included a healthy option for the more health conscious among you. Augason farms is another reputable emergency food supply brand and well known in the industry. This kit contains 522 servings of a variety of tasty freeze dried fruits and veggies. You can eat them dry or rehydrate to bring back a fresh taste. This is also a great way to supplement the other kits on this list.
5.) Long Term Freeze Dried Supply (Large Entrees)
This is for the man who can eat. If most “serving sizes” don’t satisfy your large and growing appetite, the serving sizes in this one will. Each serving is massive and will keep your stomach nice and happy. All you need is hot water to have yourself a feast. Eat up! This stuff tastes great by the way.
6.) WISE 240 Serving Milk Bucket
A life without milk? No thank you. This kit contains 240 servings of whey milk. Add a cup of water to each packet for a tasty drink that almost tastes like the real thing!
7.) Mountain House 14 Day Emergency Supply
Another solid survival food kit from Mountain house. Here we have a 14 day supply for a single person. The kit contains all the famous foods you’re used to seeing from the brand.
8.) 52 Serving WISE Prepper Pack
For the ultimate prepper who demands only the best in emergency food supplies. This kit contains a tasty assortment of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and even drinks! All of the best foods are here including Chili Mac, Stroganoff, the famous Creamy Pasta and Vegetable Rotini. Drinks include a high powered electrolyte mix (orange flavored) and whey milk. All meals are freeze dried or dehydrated. Tasty stuff indeed.
9.) WISE Grab and Go Entrees
This kit contains entree only versions of WISE’ famous and classic dishes. Each serving is packaged in its very own container and cooks right there in the bag. Simple add hot water and you’re good to go.
10.) WISE 4320 Serving Ultimate Package
I had to include this one as a totally insane option only for those SERIOUS about long term survival. This is the highest price option the list and for a good reason. There’s enough food to sustain 4 adults an entire year. Or if it’s just you, an entire 4 years! Buy this supply kit and you’ll never have to worry about food preps for a very long time.
