So, sorry if its been posted before, I have a couple of points.
1 - Tobacco is an awesome crop to farm, but its takes years and years to perfect it to the point of what we know today as cigarettes. By the time you
get a yield that tastes good, its likely to smokers will have quit the habit. Its great to stock up, but from personal experience, cigs only keep for
so long. Nobody likes a stale cigarette, trust me.
2 - Everything else aside. SPICES! The selection of modern spices in a grocery store is so vast, that its easy to forget how valuable they actually
are. The spice trade was basically the reason for exploration back in the day. You might laugh at the thought of stocking up on pepper, but think
about 5 years after the SHTF scenario. People are gonna pay big bucks to get back the few luxuries that they miss.
I can think of others, but TL/DR. Im sure they've been posted already. These were the 2 points I figured were worth repeating.
