In a crisis, food is going to be important! Being able to make quick meals, getting the right amount of calories, having food that you can bug out with if you need to, not having to depend on the government…all these are important things to consider when storing food. That’s why food storage is one of the big topics that comes up in preparedness and survival talk.
Preppers all agree that you should store what you eat and eat what you store. Your food storage should be made up of what you have in your pantry, canned foods and long term food storage, like #10 cans and buckets of food staples you can make on your own with mylar bags, oxygen absorbers, and 5-gallon buckets. But many agree that you should have some freeze-dried food as well.
I was recently sent the Legacy Mega Sample Pack. This food bucket is filled with 183 servings of long term food storage. Legacy foods are different in that they provide 1 1/2 – 2 cups per serving. When you’re hungry, that will make a big difference! Each serving is an average of 227 calories. (This number includes all the drinks too. When the drinks are not factored in, each serving is 370 calories!) The total number of calories of the Mega Pack is 41,600. In an average 2,000 calorie day, the bucket will provide one person with 20 days worth of food.
“The 183 Serving MEGA Sample Pack from Legacy Premium includes 4 different breakfasts (16 servings total), 19 different entrees (76 servings total), 6 side dishes (24 servings total), 2 drink mixes (32 servings total), and coffee (35 servings total).” SOURCE
So How Does It Taste?
I chose to cook the Alfredo Pasta for the taste test. I was impressed! I’m not quite sure what I was expecting. Probably something that was edible, but more “survival” food. The food could actually be served for a regular family meal.
It’s important to know that Legacy food doesn’t only taste good, but they are vegetarian and have some food entrees that are gluten free. In fact, they sell some food buckets that are totally gluten-free.
The Legacy Mega Sampler Pack has 76 Five Star ratings on the Legacy Page and a total of 4.5 Stars on Amazon. The pack breaks down to $10.95 per pound of food. This food will last 25 years if kept in a controlled environment. If you are looking to add some freeze-dried food to your long term food storage or you want some to be a part of your BOB or 72-hour kit, you should really consider the Legacy Mega Sampler Pack.
