This looks like a handy supplement to your food storage. Its not gourmet and its not a “complete meal”, but it is inexpensive food in a bucket that lasts 10-20 years.

Where’s the beef?!?!?

You don’t put beef in the bucket. You let it graze until needed. 🙂

Hmm, I might take a pass on this one. I’m just not sure I’m going for the artificial blueberries in the blueberry pancake mix and the propylene glycol monostearate in the milk product. Of course, this could be just the sort of thing to keep in the phony pantry to hand out to the roaming bands of pillagers or even that jeering family member who scoffed at your preparation lectures. You can hand over the bucket and feel good that you fed your enemy and feel secure that they probably won’t be back!

Seriously, I wonder if one was would be better off taking the $85 to a bulk food store and buying various beans and peas. I’m glancing at a bulk food catalogue and considering that most the peas/beans run around $.80 a pound, you could buy approximately 100# of bul beans and peas instead of #23 in the pail. 80 pounds of lentils are good for 125K calories while I think the bucket contains less than half that amount. Of course, can we expect lentil soup to come close to matching the Western Stew?
