I bought little 72-hour kit starters from Emergency Essentials when Jay and I first moved here. (I was still pregnant with The Frog, even) And they came with these Emergency food rations. They're really a great idea- very compact, and just minimal calories, for an emergency, if you have to grab your kits and take off and you just don't want to worry about starving. (There are 9 bars- breakfast, lunch, and dinner for 3 days. Each bar has 400 calories.)
my poor family puts up with me so well.
I must say it wasn't terrible. It had a strange lemony flavor about it.
I think The Frog actually liked his bar. He almost ate the whole thing! Jay was a good sport and ate what I served him (like he always does. Thank you honey! I think you are a big reason why our kids are not picky eaters...) but I had a hard time choking it down. There was something about its flavor that reminded me of conversation hearts. And those are gross! (except the minty white ones :D) My first few bites were hard to get down, but then I started getting used to it and it was tolerable. But then I took a break to clean up the water mess Peach made, and when I started up eating it again, it was gross again and I had to re-get used to it. It was weird. I'm sure if I was starving, though, I wouldn't be too picky. I think I may buy a different brand to have on hand for the next 5 years, just to compare.
We still have one unopened bar, so if anyone in the neighborhood would like it to try, let me know, you can have it :)
