SurvivalNut it looks like the bars are about 4 times as expensive the 2400calorie DATREX bars are $4.36 each 10 of the tabs have 240 calories each 180 tabs for$23.95/18=$1.33 a dayQUOTE]
Johncarter, your math is still wrong. The fine print on the pills says you have to take 12 pills to achieve the 100% vitamin level. That also bears fact that 12 pills have to be taken to achieve 240 calories.
1 3600 lifeboat ration (datrex) costs $6.29 or 1.75 cents per calorie.
1 bottle of pills (180) (12=240 calories/180=3600 calories) costs $23.95 or 6.6 cents per calorie.
I checked the tablets on other websites and they more clearly say 12 tablets = 240 calories TOTAL. I can't survive on 240 calories per day. Can you?
These pills are just a marketing gimmick. A hack job. Theft! THEY ARE MESSING WITH YOUR SURVIVAL.
Yes, real food is better. These tablets are garbage. Don't waste your money.
I don't like flaming posts, not my intent, I just feel very strongly these pills are an overpriced dried milk product.
Malted Milk tablets were a common item in survival and iron rations in WWII. These tablets were sold in little bottles in the 50's and 60's as a lunch time treat.I have never heard of such pills. I wouldn't think for a second that you could live on these tabs alone but it may help you go through less food as quickly.
SurvivalNut, you say that your mom used to pack them in your school lunch everyday? What was her reasoning?
LOL......my youngest son did the same thing. We were out fishing and I needed to use up some of my older supplies up so I took a pack along. He ate the pack on the drive up to the stream. Yep there is not enough pepto for what happenes next.......................I like those vanilla flavored cubes,just don't eat the whole package like my niece did,thinking they were cookies!there's not enough pepto bismol on earth to stop what happens next! :O
