    If you are looking for a product that has a long shelf-life, is compact, and will provide you will the sustenance you need in a survival situation, then this is it. I bought some to store in the pantry (about 3 weeks worth per person in the household) just in case we are held up in the house for an extended period, such as would be the case in a zombie attack.

    The person who says this isn’t food proceeds to list food ingredients that appear in most things in the grocery store. Flour and sugar aren’t food? You need some fat in a nutrition bar. While hydrogenated oils have their problems, it is the only way to ensure shelf-stability for fat. These bars will last FIVE YEARS without refrigeration. You need carbs for energy in a stressful (remember, it’s an emergency) situation. I like lemon cookies, so the taste is just fine for me. MREs are a great supplement, although the best only have a 3-year shelf-life. So use these in combination if you can afford the cost and space for the MREs. BTW, these bars are Kosher and meet the dictates for Halal. Not bad for meeting a wide range of dietary requirements. As always, people with specific food sensitivity should read the label.

    Pretty top notch for what it is, July 1, 2006

    I purchased a packet of these for a lightweight and handy meal for packing in the woods. The taste is fine as advertised. This isn’t a three star based on this being just a snack, however. They are survival rations, not just some kind of nosh. I would not choose to eat these as a snack as they are rather dense, and despite claims to do make you thirsty; just as eating anything bread-like will make you thirsty.

    There is also an aftertaste that, while not strong, will make your mouth continue to taste the lemon-bar you just ate for as long as it takes you to drink enough water to wash it down.

    I would rather have an MRE, but the compact and portable nature as well as the price makes this a good item for extreme light hiking.

  • David Walls says:

    I’m in the US Army right now in Iraq. Fed up with being separated from my family most of the time, I have decided to join the US Coast Guard. I know that they deploy too but it’s not as bad as the US Army. From what I’ve discovered, there deployments are only 6 months. Now really, how long are US Coast Guard deployments?

    I am a licensed 100ton boat operator and am going into the US Coast Guard. I have heard that joining as an active boat captain I qualify to join at a higher rank. I’d Like to know if anyone knows the validity of this claim and if it is truthful how do I get it into my service contract before I leave for boot camp? Any help would be Greatly appreciated. Aloha!

  • nomnomnom says:

    What is the audience the US Coast Guard seek to influence? I know this is kind of broad question. Like do they try to influence the Department of Homeland Security a.k.a. their bosses, in order to get a bigger budget to work with. or the US federal government? the President? Any and all opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    I am enlisting in the US Coast Guard. I want to be stationed on a Cutter out of boot camp. What is the probability of being placed in a station with just enlisted people in the Coast Guard?
