I just wanted to know what your thoughts were on the food to store, personally i would stock as much white rice, spam, corn syrup, corn starch and honey for long lasting food, lots of sweets, Spirits ( even though i dont drink) and thats probably it as i cant think of the other things atm but i just would like to hear what your plans of action are for food?

A lot of the canned foods like baked beans etc. have a very long shelf life too!

To add to yours....tinned foods, flour, pasta, knives, guns, slingshots, hunting knowledge, an ability to utilize my cunning, and a strong determination to defend loved ones and survive.

Not to forget toothpaste & Soap! Hygiene is very important, even in "End of the World" scenarios ...

Yep. Even though it has a short shelf life compared to other things its an excellent food item.

When rancid it works great as a fire starter and is probably even more valuable for trapping and snaring.

Quinoa you cook, eat and store it just like rice but it offers far greater nutrition.

Anything canned and anything dried. When your hungry your hungry. Doesn't matter.
I look for sales and such on meats and canned goods. When I see a good deal I by a decent amount. I store the canned goods and use my oven to dry the meat. Canned veggies to not worry about... Corn and wax beans. Also, a good rule of thumb. The veggies you hated most as a kid are prob the ones you should stock up on.

rice and beans and salt form the bulk of my prep as they are very cheap and form an almost balanced diet!!(excluding greens obviously) Both last pretty long without extra preservation too.

you just have to figure out how to make it taste good for a month

The key is to pay attention to the wording of your title: "What foods to stock up on in a SHTF moment?"

You really want to have the stuf before a SHFT moment!

I'm getting a BOB together myself, so far I have, shot gun with lots of ammo to hunt my food, portable single burner attachment that screws on the small Coleman propane tanks, tobacco seeds, tomato seeds, green/pinto bean seeds, Bought a risky whiskey kit calling it Bug Out Whiskey lol, figured it would help after a hard day surviven and all lol, And only take enough food till crops start coming, roasted red pepper and Blacked quail. does sound good, or squirrel stew/dumplings. That's what I'd do

That's a good kit! Assuming you can stay in one place long enough to reap the plants. And, assuming there's still any squirrel around. Remember, we're talking about being prepared for any sort of disaster, whether manmade or environmental. While you're listing some excellent things, it wouldn't hurt to have contingency plans.

Dryed and canned goods make uo our basics. When ever we can afford it we try and hit Sams for dried beans, rice ect.... One thing to think about to if you can, Things such as wine tabacco,spices. These things will make good trade items if you find small developed communities.

Besides, if its the end of the world i'd hate to go cold turkey on alcohol, nicotine. and ATS all in one week. LOL

Drop the corn syrup & sweets, they are not food.

In a SHTF moment it's too late to start stocking up!

Just learned the pinto beans from the store will germinate. Contain plenty of protein too. Seeds, heirloom only, save em year to year. Garden now! Learn the lessons as you go. Containers and pallets turned upright making pockets with landscape fabric, just have to water bit more frequently. Make sure your seeds are of things you will actually eat, don't waste time and water and resources if you are not going to eat it.
