Death by starvation is no picnic. Without a regular supply of food, your body literally starts to eat its muscles from the inside out. In fact, the most common trigger of death in a starving person is heart failure, because your heart–a muscle–becomes too eaten away and weak to continue beating.
But even in an extreme zombie survival situation, food isn’t just about nutrition.
Ideally, what you eat should taste good and help to improve morale by combating the urge to fall into a death-spiral of despair. The best-fed person in the world still isn’t immune to making a fatal mistake because the mind’s not right. So of all the choices for zombie survival food out there, which are the best tasting?
Daniel Violette is President of Zombie Research Society’s Riverside, California Chapter. Over the years he’s conducted an informal taste test of portable food options, and to him there is one standout:
“Moutain House has some great stuff. The lasagna meal tastes better than hamburger helper, and I was raised on that. For my survival kit it’s the clear choice. “
Based in Oregon, Mountain House produces freeze dried foods for long term storage, emergency preparedness and recreational activities like camping, hiking, backpacking, and hunting any undead ghouls wandering the countryside.
