This deal seems to be a little old so it may have already been discussed (did a search and looked through a few pages without any success), Costco has a "1-year Supply Dehydrated & Freeze-Dried Food" from Shelf Reliance for $799 shipped. I didn't do the math on the cost/calorie break down was, but I'll link the nutritional data also.

Shelf Reliance - One Year

Nutritional information.... Nutritional Information

I looked on Shelf Reliance website but couldn't find the specific package, looks to be something just at Costco.

ETA - this is NOT the same package as what is offered at Costco so not sure if the calorie count is the same

Gee, that's less than the Jews got in the concentration camps in WWII.

And a majority of them perished before 90 days, IIRC, of malnutrition.

I think this might be a nice supplement to calorie-heavy foods, but on its own, you're gonna be on a diet like never before if you're counting on this to get you through.

As with any of these types of foods, you will almost always have to supplement. Most will even state that. But its good that people are paying attention to the details and can plan appropiately.

What UFGatorAR posted doesn't match up with what Costco is offering, the item quantities don't match and that says "Basic 1 Year Dehydrated Food Supply", Costco's is "Dehydrated & Freeze-Dried".

If my calculations are correct this package has 387440 total calories, equaling out to roughly 1061calories a day........... so it's more like a six month supply, but even at that their 6 month freeze dried/dehydrated package on the website is going for almost $1200 and it has roughly the same calories. Costco price includes shipping also, so this may still be a good deal

Yeah I just noticed that too. And the quantities of servings are a little different. I am assuming (not always safe!) the calories per serving would be close but would like to confirm if possible.

That's what I am thinking. At $9.52 per #10 can, it seems like a good deal even if for a shorter term.
