I live in central Florida. Can I get 4 hr shipping?


#4

Who is the manufacturer?


#5

Based on the picture, it’s Patriot Pantry.


#6

Assuming that the prices they list on amazon aren’t inflated this is a decent deal.

Amazon prices:
3m+4w= $581
4w+2w= $308

I love their serving suggestion picture. During a disaster, garnish with a dollop of sour cream and freshly chopped chives.

Thanks for the links. I was too lazy to do the math on all of them, but I did look at the “2 week” supply:
maple grove oatmeal: 240 cal * 16 servings = 3840
mashed potatoes: 200 cal * 4 servings = 800
fettuccine alfredo: 300 cal * 4 servings = 1200
potato soup: 270 cal * 8 servings = 2160
travelers stew: 190 cal * 8 servings = 1520
creamy chicken rice: 490 cal * 4 servings = 1960
chocolate pudding: 230 cal * 10 servings = 2300
whey powdered milk: 70 cal * 16 servings = 1120

For a grand total of 14900. If it was indeed 2 weeks, or 14 days, then that works out to 1064 calories per day. That’s… not alot. Starving rations is at least 1200 cal/day. If you’re performing alot of physical activity cleaning up after a disaster (hurricane, earthquake, etc), you need alot more energy than that, upwards of 3000 calories a day. This “2 week” supply won’t even last 5 days for one person.

Okay, I looked at the directions more carefully, and this sucks! Look at this:

– Heartland’s Best Mashed Potatoes

  • Serving size: 1/3 cup
  • Servings per Container: 4
    So, that’s 1 1/3 cup per pouch (they give only one pouch in the “2 week” supply).
  • Directions: “Boil 1/3 cup of water” “Whisk 3/4 cups of potatoes into boiling water.”
    So that leaves 7/12th of a cup of potatoes left. So, if I’m mathing correctly, we need 7/27th cup of boiling water to finish preparing the rest.

That sucks. Okay, so how about just doing the whole pouch at once? For the correct ratio, then 1 1/3 cups in the pouch should be whisked into 16/27th cup of boiling water. I checked, and none of my measuring cups are graduated in 27th of a cup.

But that sucks since you don’t want to eat all of it at once since it’s supposed to be doled out slowly throughout the 2 weeks you’ll be surviving on this supply. But in fact, that exactly want they want you to do! Look at this:

– Traditional Fettuccine Alfredo

  • Directions: “Whisk in entire contents of the pouch”

– Granny’s Homestyle Potato Soup

  • Directions: “Whisk in entire contents of the pouch”

Also: Traveler’s Stew, Blue Ribbon Creamy Chicken Rice, and Chocolate Pudding.

If you follow their instructions, you’d have:
16 breakfasts of Maple Grove Oatmeal
1 and 7/12th of a side of Mashed Potatoes
1 meal of Fettuccini Alfredo
2 meals of Potato Soup
2 meals of Traveler’s Stew
1 meal of Chicken Rice
2 desserts of Chocolate Pudding
and 16 drinks of milk.

That’s 16 breakfasts, 1 7/12th sides, 6 meals, 2 desserts, and 16 drinks. Meant for 14 days.

Is it a good idea to ditch the grocery and live off this stuff for a month or 2 or 3…

Hmmmm. Probably not. But mice will be a good extra source of protein? And bacteria and virus and…)


#12

So you’re supposed to suck out the contaminated water and spit it into the pan to make your food? Depends on who it is but I might just scoop out the yuck water instead…
