In the first hours/days of an emergency situation, using your stockpile of food may not be a practical/possible thing to do. It might be hard to cook, you might be in shock or injured, etc. To prepare for just such an instance, we have bought a few cases of 1200 and 2400 calorie emergency food bars (we got a mix to add variety and help with rationing the calories). After things "settle down" a bit, then we can dig into our emergency supplies and live off of them. Just not sure that immediately after an "incident" the first thing on our minds will be breaking into our food supply... Also in the event that something forces us to leave, whether it's destruction of our house for some reason, or government mandated evacuation/relocation, emergency foodbars are light and easy to carry with you in your "go bag/BOB". So, does anyone else stock emergency food bars? Considering it?
