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.

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.

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.

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.

Price pretty good…flavor better than most others…packaging…well meh…should be better…

So I got mine today and opened a package to try them out. I had first ordered the S.O.S. bars but didn’t notice their coconut content which is a deal breaker for me since I hate coconut. That being said I was disappointed to find that the “six portions” in each package of the ER rations was really one giant bar with indentions. It would be like Hershey advertising a chocolate bar that no one had ever seen as having 12 chocolate bar servings when its really one bar. In fact the ER bar is so thick you better darn well have a knife to break up the pieces or you will struggle with it. That being said the flavor of these were more than decent and the package they come in has a built in zip lock feature which somewhat helps offset the lack of individual packaging. If they were to make changes in this product I would recommend breaking up the giant chunk of a bar into 6 actual bars and even more importantly make them portions thinner so they are easier to eat. As for taste these are still LIGHT YEARS better than S.O.S. bars.

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.

I guess

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.
