Reasons to pack emergency food bars

Food bars are the ultimate survival food.
Have you stockpiled food bars in your prepper's pantry, vehicles
and bugout bags and emergency kits? Ready to eat, 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.)

By combining delicious tasting and lightly smoked animal
protein with savory nuts and dehydrated fruits, EPIC Bars taste
amazing! EPIC foods are unique in the sense that they are more
savory, tender, and flavor-forward than jerky without the high
carbohydrate and sugar load of other bars. EPIC bars are made
of 100% natural beef and bison, which are both 100% grass-fed
and organic.

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.

Food Bar #4: Pemmican bars.
Pemmican fruit 'n Nut bars are concentrated food bars
(traditional pemmican bars may contain meat). Quick energy.
No trans fat. All 8 essential amino acids. High fiber. Voted best
energy bar. Meatless. Natural ingredients combine to make a
complete protein.

  • Ingredients: Malted Corn and Barley, Nonfat Milk, Honey,
    Wheat Germ, Raisins, Soy Flour, Walnuts, Soy Oil, Wheat
    Bran, Pecans, Grape Juice.

Food Bar #5: Power bars.
When you’re a serious athlete competing at the highest levels
of 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

SOLDIER FUEL energy bars “pack a wallop of balanced nutrition
and taste good too” (Popular Science magazine). The Soldier
Fuel bar beat Balance Bar, Snickers Marathon, and PowerBar
Triple Threat in a taste test conducted by the Washington Post.
And the NY Daily 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 available to you.

nutrition and taste good too,” or so says Popular Science
magazine. The Soldier Fuel bar beat Balance Bar, Snickers
Marathon, and PowerBar Triple Threat in a taste test conducted
by the Washington Post. And the NY Daily News health editor
credits Soldier Fuel with making him 20% faster on his daily
runs. Engineered to provide steady energy with no spike and no
crash. Soldier Fuel  has a 3-year shelf life and can withstand
high and low temperatures, much like
ration bars.

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.
