    I’ve been thinking about acquiring a short/mid term food supply say 3 months for two. Any advice on something that tastes good and has a decent shelf live of at least five years. I’d ideally like to be able to take some as back up camping as back up and replace when needed I’ve read mixed reviews, any help would be great.

    I can't help you with where to buy, but I applaud your decision. Emergency rations are important!

    I've had a few of these in my basement for quite some time, never tried one though. Maybe I'll have one for dinner tonight.

    I have seen tubs of this type of food at ranch & home stores. I have never seen it at Walmart. I'd go see what you can find at your local farm supply store.

    Most of what you want or need can be bought at your grocery. The trick is in how you store it. If you are going to do it there are good directions on the net. The best are on sites put up by the Mormon church. [it's a requirement for them.] And the stuff from the grocery tastes just like what you are already eating! DR

    What I would like to know is why our government has given can food an expiration date.

    The short answer is because government is looking-out for you. Uncle Sam sees you as too stupid to know enough to not eat a can of something that smells like a bad case of flatulence or my breath in the morning.

    I suspect some liberal with too much time on his hands wanted to know how long some evil corporation, intent upon killing tens of thousands of its customers, had kept a can of whatever on the shelves in the warehouse before shipping it to grocery store. Maybe a can somewhere blew-up with botulism, or some tree-huggin' batsard got food poisoning and sat upon the porcelain many, many, many times over a four- or five-day period. That's how it was with me. I never want to go through that again.

    It's the same thing for why we have calorie counts on the menu at McDonalds. I know a Big Mac is 6500 calories. I don't care! I'm in the place because I like Big Macs. If the calories in a Whopper Double or a Dave's Triple bothers some milque-toast wimp, he should go to some veggie place and pig-out on tree bark and moss. I like my beef dripping with fat. I'll continue to eat it that way, and the Vegan obamaholes who purport to know so much more than me about myself can go copulate themselves.
