Survive2Thrive Pail - 40 Days/Nights Organic Emergency Survival Food Supply
Product Review (submitted on February 22, 2012):
This is basically a big bucket filled with vacuum-packed bags of beans and grains. This is certainly a healthy route, and we'd all be better off if we ate like this every day. On the other hand, this kind of diet might be a big jump for somebody used to eating a lot of processed, prepared foods regularly. There is certainly no "cheesy lasagna" in this pail. If you are worried about eating like this, you could try a one-day experiment with oatmeal for breakfast, seasoned rice for lunch, and a simple bean soup for dinner. If you feel satisfied, this pail could be right for you. Plus, it's never to early to start eating natural, healthy food - if you don't eat food from factories, you won't care when the factories shut down!
Having said that, there is no "magic" in this bucket. You could probably buy your own vacuum sealing machine and store the same food yourself at a lower cost-per-serving. On the other hand, if you tend to procrastinate like me, the vacuum-sealing project won't actually happen until it's too late. Buying this bucket is an easy way to start your food storage without needing to figure out a bunch of stuff first.
