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? 🙂

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

Fresh stock, so it’s a good 5 year shelf life. I keep a couple in the car, work, as well as home.
Very high quality, tasty enough, and packaged VERY well to protect the contents in an emergency

As others have commented, this is basically a big crumbly block of bland shortbread. The taste wasn’t bad. I wanted to try one before I ever needed it to make sure it was edible and to test the packaging. I was favorably impressed. I wouldn’t buy these for snacking, but they’re plenty edible enough for survival purposes. I think even fussy kids would eat these if hungry.

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.
PREPARED FOR THE WORST AND PRAYING FOR THE BEST
Fortunately, I have not had to eat any of these yet, but it is nice to know I have them. Reading others’ reviews of these bars helped make my purchase easy. They say they taste a lot like shortbread. I love shortbread, so enough said. I live on West Maui, and this year we are supposed to have an extra active hurricane season starting June 1, through the end of the year, and they say that because there is only one ocean front road connecting us with the other side of the island, that we could easily be cut off from the other side because the road will be gone in several spots, and so we could be stuck on our own for who knows how long before food and water become available again after a hurricane. Iniki hit Kauai and devastated the island years back, and people had to fend for themselves. Being on an island, you can’t just drive to safety. You’re stuck. So, every year I prepare and if we don’t have one, I eat some stuff and donate the rest. It is nice to know that these are good for 5 years. It is nice to have peace of mind. I am prepared with enough food and water for me and my cat for a month if need be.
Best Survival Shortbread Cookie I’ve tried so far!

I love these things. Look at the ingredients. They are literally giant blocks of vanilla shortbread. (I don’t really taste lemon in them.) They are maybe a bit more bland than your typical shortbread cookies that come in a tin. I don’t know how long you could realistically survive eating only this, but it’s the only one of these types of emergency cookie that I’ve tried that made me want to eat more of it.
Okay but bland and boring.
Just tasted as a test. Basically, a giant hard dense sweeter animal cracker. No lemon taste at all. Put inside a large ziploc bag before cutting, as it will crumble, even with a sharp knife. Tastes okay, for it’s use as an emergency ration. I nuked it with a cup of water in the microwave, old trick to revive stale bread. It helped, made it a bit softer, but still crumbles.
They are perfectly edible, reminding me a little of shortbread
These are handy to have on hand. I keep some on the boat and I keep a package in each car as you never know where you might break down or get stuck. I gave a couple of packages to each of my offspring for their cars and I still have plenty left over.
