The 18 ounce, 2,400+ calorie ER Bar is formulated specifically in accordance with the stringent requirements of the US Department of Homeland Security and the US Coast Guard for emergency victims. Ideal for emergency situations, each packet contains six individual 410 calorie rations that are ready-to-eat with no preparation. With a non-thirst provoking formula and a perfect balance of quality ingredients, the ER Bar provides nutrition specifically formulated for disaster victims, including an optimum balance of salt, carbohydrates, protein, fat and enriched with the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals. Food requirements will vary from person to person and may also vary depending upon environmental circumstances (cold weather requires more energy to stay warm, for example). Just one 2,400+ calorie ER Bar can minimally sustain an average person up to three days if necessary, but it’s advisable to evaluate the needs of your family and prepare accordingly. Following a disaster, food supplies may become disrupted, stores closed and power outages could last for days. The US Department of Homeland Security and FEMA recommend stocking a three-day supply of non-perishable food per person to prepare for emergencies. Even canned foods can spoil within 6 months. Get quality food rations that you can count on and store ER Bars in multiple locations for easy access to essential nutrition in an emergency. The special re-sealable package is vacuum sealed and certified by the USCG to maintain a 5-year shelf life. ER bars contain no tropical oils, coconut or nuts which may cause dangerous allergic reactions when no medical aid is available.

Who knew food rations could be edible, and even taste pretty good? 🙂

Knowing what to expect will help

Keeping in mind that this is an emergency food and not a food storage item, it’s actually quite good.

Arrived with manufacture date that was only a couple of weeks ago. So they are fresh and I can keep them the full 5 years.

I bought this a few months ago and its been sitting on a shelf since then. Today I finally decided to try it just to see what I should expect. I can’t say I was let down because of the taste because this for survival, not taste, but be that as it may, its not bad. Its not good, but, its better than bad. The texture of it is like a cake that has been left out for a couple of days and has gone stale, or like a really ahick cookie. It’s not soft but its easily chewable, and although it taste like dry food, its not. As a mater of fact its the opposite of dry (in your mouth). When you start chewing, it’s as if the small bite you took, expands and hydrates its self some how. It won’t make you thirsty so you can save up on water in a survival situation, and the taste in bad. Oh, I forgot to mention the taste. It tastes like a kinda banana or lemon to me. If this was a bit more sugary I think it could make a half decent dessert. For the price, I say this is a great deal. Also, the bag is resealable, so that’s a plus. I’ve been around amazon and I’ve seen places sell one ration for $10, but this brings 5 for $20. Is it a bit sketchy or disconcerting? Sure, but hey, survival on a budget. I’m planning on ordering more and I recommend people to do the same. I give it for stars just for that fact that if it had a bit more sugar or flavor it would have been perfect, but hey, beggers can’t be chooser’s.
Can’t beat the price for something you’ll more than likely never need, but are required to have…
I bought these bars for our emergency disaster kits at work. We had had them in our last kits that had expired and a few people tried the bars and said they tasted like greasy dog biscuits. Since this did not sound appetizing to me I started looking for other alternatives for our new kits. All of the other alternatives were either expensive, required heating/water (um really?) or came in a bucket which I couldn’t quite get my head wrapped around since they sell the same buckets with a seat and bags for use as emergency toilets…sorry folks, just couldn’t do it! All the bars are are fats and grains…carbs. For people with special dietary needs these won’t work…I’ve let my special diet people know (I’m in the “special” group too) that they should stock some food that they can eat in their desks in case of an emergency. God willing we will never have to use the rations, but we are required by our corporate office to maintain a three-day supply of both emergency food and water rations for each person in all of our various offices. These meet our requirement and stack nicely in our kits. Delivery was fast.
Can’t Attest to the Taste…But Shipped Shortly After Manufacture
Like many other reviewers here I cannot yet attest to the taste of the product or it’s longevity as I just purchased them. However, I am happy to report that the manufacture date on the product was a mere two months ago, which means I can get the full five year lifespan out of them. (assuming they don’t get eaten before then)
Seems like one of the better choices for a good price.
Arrived in time and intact. Not gonna open them unless I need to so I cant tell you what they taste like. They are for basic needs, survival type situations so I’m sure they aren’t going to be gourmets meals. They are supposed to last for at least 5 years in reasonable storage conditions so as long as they do that then I will be very happy with them. So far so good…
Delicious rations and very filling
These are by far the most delicious and filling rations I’ve ever had.
When these were sent to me, they were dated for a full 5 years. In most instances in rations, you will be promised 5 year life span but it had been sitting for a couple of years so you will only keep three years of the life span, NOT with this product! The full 5. These are much heavier than you would think, however, when thinking about it, it has quite a bit of calories packed into a small item like this. Would be able to fit a bar into a pack for hiking, or several bars into a bigger pack for a bug out bag. For the price, you can’t beat the quality. The packaging is amazing. I have yet to try the item, but going off the other reviews, I won’t have to worry about it.
