Costco is good for many things: giants bags of chip, trays of 20 croissants, boxes of candy bars, Post-its in bulk, and most important of all, Emergency Food Kits. For $114.99, you get 275 servings of water-reconstitutable goodness all tucked away in a 23-pound bucket. Have a craving for corn chowder? Just add a corn chowder pack to five cups of boiling water and simmer for 20 minutes. (Kit does not contain water.) You can also feast on Western Stew, Blueberry Pancakes, Whey Milk, and Potato Bakon Soup. Bakon, my friends, bakon!
I don't think this is something you should eat on a regular basis just to save money (as tempting as that may be), but if you're trapped in your house and have no way of getting to a source of real food, it may be time to crack open that bucket. [via Unclutterer]
