Part of the CERT training was to have 72 hrs of supplies on hand. The trainers mentioned energy bars but the regular stuff sold at the markets had a 6 mo shelf life. I did a search and found these 5 yr shelf life bars, 400 calories, very low sodium. I ate one driving yesterday so didn't get a pic of the bar itself. Tasted good and did not make me thirsty which would be important. They are called Millennium bars, 12 for $18 Amazon and there are larger quantities. There were 2400 calorie bars and will try those later. 12 bars is 1600 calories per day for three days...

Any other recommendations?

The cherry one was pretty good. Sweet, not salty, ok consistency and moisture. Obviously I am wondering what they will taste like 4 yrs from now but the reviews were favorable.

Like a hockey puck, what do you think? If you need to eat it would it matter what it tastes like?

I'll have to try these, thanks Allen. I put a couple Mountain House Chicken Salad pouches in my CERT go bag. It tastes really good, better than it looks, and has lots of calories and protein for energy. Just add cold water, no need to heat.

I just finished outfitting my CERT go bag, including making a new compact trauma kit. As soon as I get a chance, I'll make a youtube video of the contents.

Not energy bars, but gluten free food with 25 yr shelf life. I haven't tried them so don't know how they taste.

$14/day/person: [Click Here]

When buying these sorts of products, ignore how many servings they claim and look at total calories. Under best of circumstances, you will probably need around 2000 cal per day. Double that if it's cold, or you are doing hard labor (digging out your house...)

Awesome stuff! I guess if we are at the point of using these that taste is probably a low priority and survival and calories are a high priority

I will have to pull out the list I obtained when I first loaded my CERT bag. We had a CERT bag filling party shortly after graduation. Got all kinds of stuff in there.

@doo.hick.ey I tend to get blues confused with violet or green depending on the shade. I'm just a warm color oriented person.

Funny, my Dr Rose across from South Coast Plaza in Santa Ana, put rose colored spectacles on me during an eye test. Both chuckled a bit. I saw much better colors. Women are rare to have colorblindness. Your lack of blues may be yellow/green issues. Try holding a blue lens.
