Freeze dried meals and snacks. Where I work has snacks almost every day, and there is usually several small packages of freeze dried fruit. I often manage to snag one several times a week and I have collected them for my GHB and my kids GHBs.

At Winco I buy several different kinds of roasted corn and mix it with granola, dried blueberries, 'wasabi' peas and cashews for snacking on during the day. I have some of that mix in the car.

I like the canned fish. I grew up with my dad sharing a tin of kippered herrings with me on Saturdays so thus my affinity for them. Some people have a hard time digesting them though so I can see why they aren't that popular. As @Joe13 said, they are nutritionally packed. I like to go to the Asian groceries and buy the small cans. They are really cheap and you can usually find a huge variety at these places.
You can get 16oz cans of mackerel for $1 just about anywhere and it tastes exactly like sardines.

In my GHB I carry Tanka bars, mini Snickers bars, packets of boullion, and instant coffee packets. Not a wide range of food but it's for 2-3 days of walking not for a feast. I also have rotating stuff in my car that would supplement my kit.

For my GHB I only have items that don't need to be cooked.

1x - Madras Lentils 10oz package (can be purchased at Costco)
2x - Cheese/Peanut Butter Packets (can be purchased at Winco)
4x - Cliff Bars
4x - 16oz bottled water

What I have in my bag is enough to either get me home or get me to a new food source.

Having been on countless military patrols I chose food that can be eaten while moving and doesn't have to be cooked.

Having a snack while moving across rough terrain is a great moral booster. I can worry about fancy meals when I get to a safe location.

    This shop is an extortion racket. It’s the only one in town and charges like a monopoly. He can’t fulfill commitments and he won’t provide estimates.
