Walmart Selling Survival food???

Here's a link to what they offer

So I just moved to Colorado and needing a few things for the new house I swing by the local Wal-Mart...

Well you can imagine my surprise the Cortez store has a full isle dedicated to survival foods???
Yup I bought 3 lbs of honey powder, to use in my regular cooking as a replacement for sugar. that three pounds was just under $11 bucks making it way cheaper than the little plastic bears honey....

Anyway to all you buffs just thought you might like to know there's a new source out there... you can have it shipped to your house of save a few pennies and have it shipped to your local store... maybe if you talked to the store manager they'll stock a few just for you?

BTW I would recommend the 30 day pail... it's basically a 6 gal bucket with all your food stuff inside... not only is that bucket water tight it can be used later to collect water or gather other stuff...
I ordered one to keep on my boat...

They had some survival stuff here at Wallmart a while back. I don't go in there often. I saw big cartons of rations based on a couple of weeks supplies in a carton at a high price. I would rather eat regular foods. Some of the survival foods could make you wish you had died if you eat them too long.

I would like to get some canned or powdered butter so I can make cookies if tshtf I like cookies with coffee

what happens during a communist takeover is, they come and confiscate all your food so they can redistribute it. so stockpilers are going to end up feeding the nation, although i have a hard time believing they would actually use the food appropriately, and instead just use it as a means of class warfare. so after they come and steal your food, they will raise up an army against their own citizens so they don't have to feed them at all. both sides of the political spectrum need to learn what happens in a communist revolution.

They got powdered butter... it's like $19 a can...

Stay away from the powdered milk though... their 29oz can is like 10 bucks but a 32 oz box of great value brand is like $8

Also go down the Mexican foods isles and look for Nido brand from Nestle ... they have a 3.5 pound can they sell for like $14.... BTW I am rounding up prices....

Oh and while on that subject look into the Maggi products... they have seasoning packets that turn a few ingredients into a tasty meal

Just buy peanut butter and canned foods.

Tastes better, makes you constipated the same, and is cheaper.

Strange that Walmart is selling but Walmart tends to sell whatever their clients will buy. The people that shop at Walmart are usually the backwoods types.(other types too for anyone that's visited peopleofwalmart)

I don't think I've ever met a hillbilly that didn't shop at Walmart now that I think of it. At least where I'm from those people tend to stock up more in general. Maybe that's why?

Cortez CO. is one the bigger towns in the four corners region... Meaning south and west of us sits the Navajo Nation... and that is every bit as big as the State of Rode Island... Due West and Due East of us is the Ute tribe... not as big or prosperous but darn close...

My point being that a lot of these folks only come to town once or twice a month for supplies... Some of these folks live without running water or electricity... freeze dried makes a lot of sense to them so in this case Wal-Mart is supplying the demand ... for this region anyway

The easiest way to buy powdered butter, milk, and eggs is to find a distributor that sells to restaurants.

Buying bulk for emergencies from traditional stores can get pricey.

Depending on the location they wills stock what they think will sell. Costco is another place selling the stuff but honestly a company is not selling this stuff because the envision bad stuff to come, the fact is people are buying the stuff so Walmart is taking the opportunity to make some money..

Too bad their employees cant afford it unless food stamps pay for it.

One of, if not the number 1 employer with employees on welfare.

I saw a sale a couple years on a "Survival Food Bucket Packet" for $78 at Wally World, and was quite expensive for no more that was included.

Go with canned foods.

I bought a bucket of this stuff at Sam's Warehouse a couple of months ago for $100. My daughter told me I was crazy, but what the heck… it has a shelf life of 20 years, it's a month of food for one person in a five gallon bucket that I just tossed into a closet in the basement.

If I never need it, great. If I do, greater.

survival food huh...i am betting that crap will put you 6 feet under before you have a chance to survive

I think if it was a short term survival scenario then a bucket would do. But if it was long term then it would turn into dog eat dog and once you run out of food then well you're basically screwed. What I'd do is go find a spot to live somewhere near the walmart. hopefully it's not picked clean. Then store a bunch of the food away in some hidden spot and then turn the office area into my apartment. So if I need anything I could just go into the store and get it. And as roaming moraders come around I could come out and meet the ones that seem friendly. And we'd create a gang called: The Walmart Warriors

Why go to all this trouble to eat powered stuff that is most likely crappy tasting but will turn your bowels inside out in the process. Just go with the MRE's that keep for 7 or 8 years, are made for young solders on the move and have 2 or 3 times the calorie intake most people need, a months worth can be stored in a frame pack, come with heaters and special spoons, no need to add water or anything and on top of that they are damn good-the hardest part is not eating them every night.

I'm going on another survival junket after the first of the year and that is all the food I am taking-if I don't eat it all up first-had the Chili mac on Tuesday. A 24 day supply will easily last 60 days because of the high calorie intake of each meal. These also came with 6 chewable B-12 jolts that really can improve your strength and endurance.

You do know that MRE stands for 'Meals Rejected by Everyone' in other words their pretty nasty tasting...

As you said MRE's have 2 to 3 times more calories than you need... way more than I need and are loaded with a lot of bad for you preservatives.
List of dangerous food additives

Another not so well known fact about MRE's is

MREs are shelf stable for a minimum of 3 years at 80oF (26oC) and a minimum of 6 months at 100oF (38oC)

MRE fast facts

Freeze dried foods don't have or need that crap, true some can have a tad too much salt which is bad too but way better than stuff than can cause Hyperactivity (H) - Asthma (A) - Cancer (C)... go read the list...and they have a shelf of 30 years rather than 3

Like others have said,I'm sure its more of a location issue than nation wide.I have heard of others selling items tho.Personally,I think one could make a better fresh homemade meal a LOT cheaper! How long do you really expect these to last? They claim 20 years under perfect conditions.Bugged out in the woods will not be near perfect,nor will sitting in a hot garage or damp basement.It certain areas,with a lot of snow or such,it might be nice to have a few,but for the cost,just stock your pantry full.

Cortez CO is a area with a lot of Mormons.

Mormons store between 6 months to a years food for emergency's

Walmart is right in selling a product with a high rate of turnover.
