Costco's New Emergency Food Bucket

Costco is now offering a waterproof Emergency Food Supply for about $75 (it's $85 if you order after Sept. 14th). Included in the plastic bucket are 275 separate servings of vegetarian offerings such as potato bakon (sic), corn chowder, Western stew, rice lentil, whey milk, blue berry pancakes and barley vegetable. While I can't vouch for the taste of these meals, the advertised 20-year shelf life makes it a good item to buy and forget. To order the Costco food bucket click here.
