Serves intended purpose, non-offensive taste
This product accomplishes its purpose, densely providing lots of calories for emergency situation and having a long shelf life despite high temperature variation. The 18 separate bars inside the package are wrapped with something like cling wrap, and taste like sorta-bland mildly-coconut flavored crumbly shortbread. I agree that the bars are not especially thirst provoking. The bland taste profile is probably deliberate; just like with saltine crackers I can imagine keeping these down even if nauseous, which is appropriate for "lifeboat rations". Note: The full shelf life is contingent on the outer (plasticized blue foil) packaging being airtight. If the outer package does not appear vacuum sealed, or individual internal bars can freely slide against each other, then the outer packaging is not airtight.
I have never tried a food like this before. They were great. They taste a lot like a almond cookie from a Chinese restaurant , except not as dry. They have a little bit of a coconut taste also. I do not think you could eat a jar of peanut butter without having some milk to wash it down. Do not try them the taste is addicting and we ate them all.
bars will get you through the rough stuff
well these bars will sustain," keep you alive" , don't think they'll keep you happy though. i say these should be your 1st layer of protection from hunger. get these first, then some other types of supplies, bars are not for longer than a few days, by then you should have a better idea on your situation, and i hope you have more supplies stocked if its going to be a long wait. the taste is OK but you don't want to live on them.
Ad is misleading
Food bar is not 3600 calories. There are 18 bars that total 3600 calories and SOS website has them listed for $5 and something. More calories in a jar of peanut butter and there is no list of ingredients.
Good to carry in the car or day hikes just in case something happens.
