$200 worth of Ramen noodles can last a very very very long time, and even more so if you buy them in bulk online at a few cents per package.
$200 worth of Ramen noodles is darned near enough for effective ballistic shielding, barricading, or even building an edible survival structure out of the Ramen noodle bricks.
For nutrition, and variety, mix in extra herbs and spices, meats, beans, eggs, veggies, whatever.
The packs can also be eaten raw, and are actually quite tasty raw and dry even without sprinkling or dipping into the flavor powder pack.
Ramen noodles; Better than Twinkies for any apocalypse.

Had to jump in with a word on Ramen.
It is a filler food. Use as a side dish or as the base for added real food items. The nutritional content is almost zero and each packet is only 180 calories. In a long term survival situation in the wild, you will burn up to 5000 calories a day. Any attempt to sustain yourself on Ramen alone would be worse than trying to live on rabbit alone. You will lose a little bit of fat in the beginning and then your body will begin to convert muscle after a week or so.

Don't be a Survivalist because you're afraid. That won't work. Be a Survivalist because it's who you are, irrespective of whether a SHTF/TEOTWAWKI scenario is in play.
If you are a genuine Survivalist, you'll still be one even when everything's fine; when home delivered food is abundantly available, there's lots of oil, etc. Survivalism carries with it an inherent psychological framework, and even more than thinking and feeling, it's absolutely about intuition. If you don't have that...if the temperament just isn't you, then when something happens, you're most likely going to die anyway.
That doesn't mean that there aren't things you can do, of course. Buy yourself a first aid kit, and store up some spare food if you like, by all means. Just understand, however, that the whole box and dice is a lot more than that; and it's also about more than just what you do.
It's about what you are.
