I’d like to introduce a prepper resource that’s going to become the popular kid in your pantry: The Defender Pack. You’ll want this kid to sit with you at every meal, particularly during an emergency.
The NuManna Defender pack is a 3 month supply of NuManna meals with a wonderful twist: it contains an additional supply of high-quality superfoods.
These can be combined with the standard dehydrated meals to increase both calories, satiety, and nutritional value. The extra goodies are all organic except for the parboiled rice:
The other food in this particular package is a mix of gluten-free choices and five containing gluten. (Even if some of your family members have gluten issues, it will still a worthwhile package, since there may be other members of your group have that have no issue with wheat products.)
I’ve marked the items that are gluten-free with a star. *
*Sweet Habanero Chili (6 x 2 servings)
Mac n Cheese (1 x 6 servings)
Pasta Primavera (1 x 6 servings)
*Enchilada Beans and Rice (1 x 6 servings)
Hearty Soup w/ Pasta (1 x 6 servings)
Pasta Alfredo (1 x 6 servings)
Italian Pasta (6 x 6 servings)
*Potato Casserole (1 x 6 servings)
*Hawaiian Sweet n Sour (1 x 6 servings)
*Black Bean Soup (1 x 10 servings)
*Cheddar Broccoli Soup (1 x 10 servings)
*Cheesy Potato Soup (1 x 10 servings)
*Granola (1 x 10 servings)
*Classic Chili (1 x 10 servings)
*Rice Pilaf (1 x 10 servings)
Holy cow! This stuff must be expensive!
In the grand scheme of storable food, NuManna is very reasonably priced, particularly when you consider the fact that this is real, delicious, high-quality food that you would enjoy even if it wasn’t an emergency.
Now, if you compare this to some of the other buckets on the market, you might feel like that’s too high of a price. But, you have to keep in mind, this is for real food.
Here’s an example: One other popular company charges an equivalent amount per meal, but the “meals” are ridiculous items like instant rice (just plain – nothing but white rice), oatmeal, cream of wheat, pudding, sugary energy drinks, and powdered milk. If I was in an emergency situation and had been working hard all day, I wouldn’t be too happy to open my food bucket and find and orange energy drink or a bag of plain rice for that night’s dinner.
If you want to add things like oatmeal or drink powders to your stockpile, you can do it for FAR less money than $2.40 per serving. Any time you’re shopping for food buckets, check to see what you get and decide if these items should really be considered a meal.
It’s such a relief to find an emergency food line that I can recommend without hesitation. I wholeheartedly endorse NuManna Foods.
