Survival Food Bars
Reasons to pack emergency food bars

Have you stockpiled survival food bars in your prepper's pantry,
vehicles and bugout bags and emergency kits? Survival food bars
will provide you and your family with much needed energy,
nutrition and calories in an emergency, and they are good to
stow away in a variety of locations in the event of crisis.

  • Important note: Survival food bars are not the same as
    ration bars. Both bars are for emergencies, but used in
    different ways. While emergency food bars will give you the
    energy and calories you need, they require water. Ration
    bars on the other hand are non-thirst provoking and provide
    minimal caloric intake.

Reasons to pack survival food bars
From savory to sweet, food bars provide the nutrients, comfort
and quick energy you need while you're on the go making them
an ideal starter meal in a disaster.

  • Quick energy. Many food bars contain nuts and protein,
    which will provide a much needed boost of energy for long
    hikes or bicycle rids. Any of the energy food bars on this
    page will give you enough quick energy to get out of Dodge.

  • Portable nutrition. Whether you need breakfast on the go
    or a boost to get on with a strenuous hike, food bars are an
    excellent consideration for your food storage system or your
    bugout bag. Food bars require no preparation! No need to
    heat to eat. Unwrap the nutrition

  • Kids love them. Kids love just about any kind of food bar
    because it tastes like a candy bar or cookie. This is a morale
    booster for your little ones. Food bars are an easy to pack
    comfort food in time of crisis.

Whether it helps you curb your appetite until you get to safety,
or gets you through the night. (Eating a small meal before you
sleep can keep you warmer during a cold night outdoors.)

Food Bar #3: Millennium Energy Bars.
These 400-calorie food bars could be the most important source
of energy you'll have in an emergency. Millennium Energy Bars
are U.S. Coast Guard approved and have a five-year shelf life,
which is longer than its leading competitor, which has only a
three-year shelf life. Each bar provides important portion control
for groups or individuals in an extended emergency. In an
emergency, each person should eat a minimum of 800 calories a
day (2 400-calorie bars). Additional food provides greater energy
for each person.

exercise intensity and duration, fueling up right can make a huge
impact on how you feel and perform. PowerBar Performance
Energy Bars provide a dual source energy blend: a 2:1 glucose to
fructose blend found to deliver 20–50% more energy to muscles
than glucose alone.

Food Bar #6: The survival Tabs.
New to the market, The Survival Tabs are like food bars in little
bite-sized nuggets. They won't really satiate your appetite,
because they are only 20 calories each and they have no bulking
fiber, but they will help ensure you get the vitamins you need in
a crisis situation where the food you're eating is less nutritive
than what you'd have in a non-emergency situation. One  
portable, personal pouch of the Survival Tabs will sustain a
person for a day. You're basically getting the nutritional
equivalent of a 2000-calorie diet without getting the calories.
Three packets, representing three meals, have a total of around
240 calories -- which is only 10% of the calories you need in a
day. Certainly this is better than starving. Think of them more
like survival vitamins and something tasty to go with your rice
and beans. They are like little butterscotch.

Food Bar #7: Raw revolution bars.
Raw revolution bars have crazy flavors! The Raw Revolution
Variety Pack, pictured right includes four most popular moist and
delicious flavors: Spirulina Dream, Chocolate Coconut Bliss,
Chocolate Crave, Almond Butter Cup. Not available in retail

FUEL energy bars “pack a wallop of balanced nutrition and taste
good too” (Popular Science magazine). The Soldier Fuel bar beat

News health editor credits SOLDIER FUEL with making him 20%
faster on his daily runs. Engineered to provide SteadyEnergy with
no spike and no crash, SOLDIER FUEL is featured in the official U.
S. Special Operations Forces Nutrition Guide. And now it’s

Remember to pack food bars in the bugout bag!

Food bars are not the same as ration bars

Ration bars vs. food bars
Both ration bars and food bars should be part of your survival
plan, and there is a difference. Food survival bars are not the
same as
ration bars , which are a non-thirst provoking source of
sustenance when water and food is not available. Most food bars
are nothing more than a glorified candy bar; however, some
deserve recognition for being excellent items to carry in your
bugout bag.

Marketers of these snack bars make you feel as though you are
giving your body a healthy snack, but really what you are giving
your body is carbohydrates. Think of food bars for protein, energy
and snacks.  Food bars will keep you going, but you're going to
get thirsty eating them, so you will have to have enough access
to water. When you're short on water, that's when you'll need to
grab a ration bar.

A ration bar also is for when you are sedentary, such as hiding
out in the bunker or waiting until rescue arrives. Ration bars were
created for watercraft situations where water is limited and
movement is too.

Happy endings...
Having any source of sustenance handy during an emergency will
be welcome, but you can give thought now, while there's still
time, to getting the best tasting and satisfying food bars for your
family. Get some samples, and have a taste test! That's a fun
family prepping project that the kids will enjoy.
