Emergency Rations

Whether you call them Emergency Rations or Emergency Food Bars or Survival Bars, these bars/rations are very nutritious and will provide you with the calories you need to survive.  They are not as tasty as an MRE (Meal Ready to Eat) but they are light, compact, and usually have a 5-year shelf life.  They also don’t require any cooking or refrigeration.  I recommend that you buy and store a combination of both emergency rations and MREs.  This will give you variety as well as the advantages of both food items.


Datrex 2400 Emergency Food Bar (Case of 30 Packages)

Highly Recommended: This is a ready-to-eat high energy bar with a coconut flavor and a 5-year shelf life.  It is made of all natural ingredients and does not contain any preservatives.  Amazon customers gave it a 4.8 out of 5 stars rating.  There are 500 grams and 2400 kilocalories (10,000 kilojoules) – – – about what the average adult needs each day — in each package.  There are 12 individually wrapped 200 calorie bars (each bar is about 1″ by 2″) per package (for rationing purposes if needed), and 30 packages in each case.  Each case weighs 30.5 pounds, and should provide enough calories for one person for one month.  Note: If you are allergic to coconut, you do NOT want to obtain these food bars.

 

 

Datrex 3600 Emergency Food Bar

This is a ready-to-eat high energy bar with a coconut flavor and a 5-year shelf life.  It is made of all natural ingredients and does not contain any preservatives.  Amazon customers gave it a 4.0 out of 5 stars customer satisfaction rating.  There are 701 total grams and 3600 total kilocalories (15,075 kilojoules) in the package and the package consists of 18 individually wrapped portions (200 calories each).  Each bar weighs about 24 ounces, and contains enough calories for one person for 1-2 days.   Note: As mentioned above, if you are allergic to coconut, you do NOT want to obtain these food bars.

 

 

Mainstay Emergency Food Rations (Case of 10)

This is another ready-to-eat high energy bar with a lemon flavor and a 5-year shelf life.  It contains no cholesterol or tropical oils and has been enriched with vitamins and minerals.  Amazon customers rated this product as 4 out of 5 stars.  There are 10 packages in each 16 pound case, and each of the 10 packages contains 6 pre-measured 400 calorie meals.  Assuming a needed usage of 2400 calories a day, this 10 package case would provide an adult with enough calories for 10 days.  This bar can also withstand temperatures of -40 degrees Fahrenheit to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

 

Mainstay 3600 Emergency Food Rations (9 Bars)

This is the same Mainstay ready-to-eat high energy bar with a lemon flavor that is mentioned above except that there is only 1 package and the package contains 9 (instead of 6) pre-measured 400 calorie meals.  Assuming a needed usage of 2400 calories per day, the Mainstay 3600 would provide an adult with enough calories for about 1-2 days.
