Seven Oceans Emergency Ration
I bought these emergency rations for general survival use. I'm a cadet instructor but I also have an interest in survival and do a lot of survival challenges and lightweight camping trips. It's good to have some emergency food in the bottom of your pack in case I can't bag a rabbit or catch a fish. First of all I'd lik to mention the very fast delivery from Cadet Direct - excellent service. As I said I will be using these as emergency rations for trekking and backpacking, but if you are looking to store them long term, these have reasonably long dates - these particular items were produced in Jul 2017 and expire in August 2022. The biscuits come in invidual paper wrapping (two squares per bar, 9 bars in total) all are packed in foil wrapping which is probably worth leaving in place to keep them fresh. Outside of this there is the cardboard carton. I opened the first pack and they tasted fresh - quite dry and crumbly. A lot of reviewers say they taste like shortbread which I would agree with and certainly not unpleasant but you can tell they're made for emergencies. Suitable for vegetarians. Hope this helps.
