We’ve already discussed the challenges of making your portable zombie survival kit light enough move quickly with, while still stocking all your essentials supplies (see: What’s In Your Bug-Out Bag?). ZRS Member, Joti Nagra, suggests a perfect food option that is self contained, compact, and weighs just a few ounces.
Approved for use by the U.S. Coast Guard, the Emergency Ration Bar (ER Bar) offers a disaster victim the right blend of required calories and nutrients to survive for 3 days. Packaged to store safely for 5 years, even in extreme temperatures and conditions, the ER Bar comes in either a 2,400 or 3,600 calorie form. They even make bars specially formulated for your dog or cat.
With no tropical oils, nuts, or cholesterol, allergic reactions are not a concern, and the ER Bar doesn’t require any water or other preparative measures before eating. Furthermore, each is enriched with 100% of your recommended daily vitamins and minerals.
If you still want some variety in your survival food, consider one of many prepackaged diet plans (see: Marie Osmond Knows Zombie Survival), but when push really comes to shove, its tough to beat the ER Bar.
