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.

While I did not give the ER Bar the original 3 day simulated emergency test I had intended (consuming nothing but the three daily portions @ day with water and no other calories for three days total), I did manage to grind through the majority of a 9 square brick over three days.

Rations are well packed with good shelf life. Internally they are packaged six to a package. Adult son and his two sons both like the food bars. Seem ideal energy food when needed.
Good ER food ration
Good ER food ration, does not make me thirsty, but is rather “Hard” so definitely bite and chew with your molars! Does not have a strong taste, rather..vanilla, which I strongly prefer as opposed to apple cinnamon etc. Lasts a long time, pouches are resealable, and the ration is already scored for you to break into 9 chunks (so 400 calories each). For about the same size and weight as the 2400 version, I’d rather just carry 3600!
Consumed 3 of these over a period of 11 days in extremely harsh conditions. Gets old like any other ration brick but these are a lot lighter and easier to carry than MRE’s (and you can rely on them being fresh. Any MRE’s you buy online are unlikely to be brand new). I used the empty bags as a rifle sock and a water-resistant bag for some sensitive gear. Recommend eating over the bag to save the crumbs so that you get the full nutritional value of the product.

This is like life insurence,you hope to never need it. But when you do ,it is great to have . The 3600 calorie ER Bar will keep you alive when there is no other food on hand.It has a good flavor and will certainly keep your stomach from “growling” at you.To me,it tastes better than year old wedding cake, what a mistake that was. It stores well ,under the worst conditions.Put a few in your pack ,or vehicle and forget they are there….When needed,you will be glad you did.
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)

We’re part of the B.O.B. Brigade, so whenever we see something that looks like a good idea for emergencies, we add them. These are the kind of bars you’d eat when you’re in the life boat and no other food is around. They sustain you, give you the daily nutrition you need and will hopefully make it possible for you to get to a safe place or outlast the storm. They are heavy feeling, being a dense type of “shortbread” cookie, may crumble (eat them over your hand or the pouch) are not supposed to increase your thirst, and stay viable for a 5 year timeline. Never hurts to have several options on hand, because you never know when you’ll need to “bug out”.
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…
