I was wondering what food can I purchase at the grocery store that lasts the longest if I was to store it?

Beans last several years and longer if properly packaged and stored. Wheat lasts darn near forever, properly pack and treat to kill bug eggs. To treat your wheat, put a mylar bag in a 5 gallon bucket or get a food grade 5 gallon bucket. Fill your container about 1/4 of the way and put a chunk of dry ice in the container. Fill the container the rest of the way and put the lid on, but do not seal it tight. Wait about 6 hours then seal your container. The gases from the dry ice will kill the bug eggs so they will not hatch and eat your stored food.
