They know that Alex Jones is under charging for his 3rd party advertising.

Kidding aside, I like Alex.... and he is an advertising whore. I do like him though.

Looks like they are capitalizing on the 2012 mania. Good marketing decision, I'm sure they will sell a lot of those.

They are doing whatever any retailer does - following current trends and responding with high-margin products. It's about money, nothing else.

YES!
They know how to meet a demand.
They know how to turn a profit by keeping their fingers on the pulse of our culture.
They are doing a damn good job of it too.

YES, you will start to see Zombie survival gear (mark my words) and NO it doesn't mean that they know about the coming zombie apocalypse.
It just means they know how to meet a demand for the ignorant masses.

Taking advantage of the 12-21-2012 hype to make some cash off people. I think that bucket is a rip off. I can do more with less.

That looks like a HUGE tub of cookies. That is an emergency supply for some.....Sorry, couldn't resist.

Some people just love their sweets.

Yes, they know how to cater to people to make a profit. If they really thought something was going to happen, they'd be stockpiling all that food for the "big wigs" Not selling it to people who just got done watching "doomsday preppers"

I want to pick up one of those and see how some of those meals taste.

2012 hype or not, depending on the quality/quantity in those that actually looks like a good deal. Out of range of most Walmart shoppers, however.

Man, those are gross. I have tried those and would not feed them to a dog. Actually most of the ones I have tried sucked. I am not sure if others agree or not, but I think the military MREs are the best, in relation to the various other brands I have tried. I would be willing to change my opinion, if only I had something to change to.

That one only last 12 days. They have another that lasts for 25 days.

www.walmart.com...

They have other stuff there as well, cookbooks, supply packs, and the food cache.

I saw something similar at Sam's club last summer but it was a 90-day (or maybe it was a month, I dunno.) supply for $150. There was enough shelf space for at least 20 boxes but the whole space was empty save 3 with a guy eyeballing one of them.

There's only 6 months left of dooms day profits. Either that, or they better find a new ancient civilization with a new end-times calendar.
Watch, they'll find Atlantis next year and discover that the Mayans were off by 5 years.

MRE's are the heat! They keep getting better by the year.

As for the food. That is verified North Korea relief aide. It is a solid block of Taco Bell meat. Just add water, yum yum.

If you look at the contents its all carbs. Where's the MOST IMPORTANT nutrient, protein? I guess the Mac and cheese is it. Your body will cannibalize proteins from your frame muscles to support protein requirements for vital organs which constantly are being replaced.

Any dog would eventually die from the severe lack of protein, as would you.
