Product Description

The Secret to Sleeping at Night

- Have you watched the snow come down until you can’t see out your window?
- Received a knock on your door after the construction crew behind your house cut a gas line & you have to evacuate?
- Or a dam upstream fails?
- Or you live in a national park & the moose mating season has been even more unruly than usual & residents are being advised to stay indoors?

Whether sheltering in place or grab-and-go evacuating, this 335 serving bucket is your first line of defense after your 72 hour kit.

The ARK bucket contains enough calories for 1 person for 1 month. The 11 entrée varieties are mildly flavored so they won’t make the throat, eyes & nose of the mild palated prepper bleed during an emergency. Like your food a little spicy, tape a bottle of Tobasco sauce to your bucket. For preppers & campers looking for a more well-rounded macro & micro nutrient profile, the ARK pairs naturally with the Chef’s Banquet Fruit or Vegetable bucket. Or add a sprouter & sprouting seeds for your living greens.

Light and stackable or easy to grab-and-go

- The Ark can be repurposed for food storage, bailing water, moving dirt, sand or debris.
- Meals come in sealed & resealable mylar pouches with oxygen absorbers & make for excellent backpacking or outdoor meals.
- Amazon customers have called the ARK “a great deal per meal for dry storable food compared to anyone else.” Another said “I highly recommend this product for your food storage program."

Just delivered today, arrived quickly.

If I'd been more attentive to detail, further assessment of the product prior to purchase may have deterred me from making this purchase.

Freeze dried food, yes, although not packed per serving or double serving (my bad for not investigating). Several cryo bags with content of each variety in one or two large packs.

Have been brewing up the chicken stew and giving the spoon a lick the last couple hours, reveals salty but palatable. Shouldn't be surprised by salty, it's dehydrated food meant for long term stability.

My suggestion for those interested in purchasing this product based on my initial assessment of viability for immediate consumption and long term storage is...

Good to go for weekend campers, bring a squeeze bottle of Sriracha to take the salty edge off with some heat, open a pack or two and put a couple different varieties in freezer bags, prepare for more water and fuel to reconstitute than advertised to the degree of three times, have a cooking vessel with a tight fitting lid essential to rehydrate, low and slow as expected.

Meh

By Hale & Hardy TOP 500 REVIEWER on Sept. 30 2015
Purchased this for our disaster/evacuation kit. Living in the earthquake/tsunami zone of the Canadian West Coast, it's important to be even marginally prepared to "go it alone" until outside or governmental help can be found. This food kit is portable and repackable (into a backpack, very easily). The tough, resealable bags will keep the contents clean and dry and ready to use when you need it. Be sure to take along a water filter and something in which to heat water (like a Kelly Kettle) using any available fuel. Tin plates/bowls/cups and utensils will also be needed to make proper use of this food kit.

You will need:
- rehydratable food (this kit, for example)
- clean water, water purification tablets, or personal water filter plus storage bottle
- Kelly Kettle or similar camp stove with cook kit - for heating water
- eating utensils & dishes/bowls
- wash up supplies

I got mine from another source, but same product.
It is surprisingly heavy, so has a lot of food in it. A good START for food storage/emergency prep. They say it has a shelf life of 20 years under certain controlled conditions. Since most homes do not offer those conditions, you might have to cut that in half - still, 10 years is pretty good. A few things to be aware of though:
* Most importantly, all of the food is white flour and potato-based carbs - it may offer all the CALORIES you need to stay alive, but it will not offer the NUTRITION you need to stay healthy. It is a good base, but you will need to add tinned/dried meats/fish (or legumes) and vegetables to each meal, and eat fruit (fresh or freeze dried) as well, if you want to stay healthy.
* Each envelope has from 9 - 18 "servings" (I think the average adult would eat 3-4 of their "servings" for a typical meal), which is fine if you are feeding a family or crowd, or have access to refrigeration. If you are saving this for true emergencies, however, the power is likely to be off, so if there are just one or two of you, some of the food is likely to spoil before you can eat it.
* The meals take, on average, 20 minutes of constantly applied heat to cook. That's fine if the power is on or you have a wood stove and lots of fuel. But I suspect most will be buying this in case of earthquakes or hurricanes when there is no power. Under those circumstances, unless you have a very large reserve off-grid fuel supply, you are better off with MREs or just-add-boiling-water meals like Mountain House.

I only rated this item 1 star because i can't rate it 0 stars...i purchased this product and have tested the orange drink, pasta in marinara sauce and the beef stew and now i'm afraid to test anymore of it. The dishes and extremely salty with a serious chemical after taste. I regret purchasing this product. Total waste of money. If you want a better tasting product, try mountain house or shore lunch.

I ordered this and it arrived the next day. I've tried over half of the food and it has all been good. My kids have eaten everything and the grown ups like it too. Our very favorites are the Beef Stew and Rice and Beans. The Chicken Stew was great, but I would describe it more as a Creamy Chicken Soup. It has been very convenient and nice to get a variety pack like this.
