    So I stopped by my local Wally world yesterday to pick up some paint and noticed they had quite a display of "survival food". Think they had cases of 300 meals for about $70 as I recall. Has anyone bought/tried these?

    Which store? The one in McMinnville never seems to have any of this kind of stuff...

    Yes, Wally World has been carrying that stuff a while now. If you're talking about the 6 packs of No 10 cans, they contain supposedly 200 SERVINGS, not MEALS. Divide the 200 by 3 or 4 servings in a meal to figure out how long they will really last. Comes to about 2 weeks per adult. They have a dinner pack and a breakfast pack.

    Not sure of the taste/quality; I'm assuming it's the same as all freeze dried stuff. I've stashed some of them myself.

    Never assume. For example Trive is far superior to the Wal-Mart stuff.

    It would have to be something that is unbelievable, super sale of a life time before I go into that place...

    Must work for most though as they are big...

    The freeze-dried food is about all I get at Wally World. I learned that WINCO has No10 cans now, so I get what I can there. Also, I found out that Cash&Carry has No10 cans of dehydrated instant potatoes for about $& here in Seattle.
