    So the order (see my original post for date) arrived yesterday. Well packaged and with a catalog. Of course I expected that.

    The 72-hour package includes four servings of the following:

    -Granny's Homestyle potato soup
    -Travelers stew
    -Liberty Bell Potato Soup (creative name)
    -Blue Ribbon Creamy Chicken Rice

    Not sure when but will give one or two items a test dine and I will report back.

    mine arrived as promised.

    during ordering they want you to upcharge for more items, i clicked no.

    the package arrived with a magazine with other products. I get their emails about every 2 days, typical "is your water safe" blah blah stuff. im about to unsuscribe.

    I got in a nicely sealed package they say is good for 25 years:
    I copied from socal man, cause i got the same thing:
    Granny's Homestyle potato soup
    -Travelers stew
    -Liberty Bell Potato Soup (creative name)
    -Blue Ribbon Creamy Chicken Rice

    My wife will be gone this next weekend and I intend to subject my body to some of the items and I will report back within 10 days, provided I am still alive!

    We have gotten stuff from them and found the food that we tried to be very good. Got free seeds with ours and kept the ones we like and gave away the stuff we wouldn't eat to my sister.
    I apologize for nothing...

    looking forward to the report...
    Give a man fire, and he'll be warm for a day!
    Light a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life!

    Cat's are food... not friends!

    The weekend my wife was gone, I ended up pretty busy and then had a bit of intestinal distress. Nothing serious but I felt that if I was going to be able to give an honest report, I needed to be in good shape to start!

    FINALLY!

    Well, tried Granny's Potato Soup:

    Tasted fine but a bit salty, someone said it is high in sodium and that is true. I had no issues post-consumption, i.e. gas, diarrhea, constipation, etc. I would have no trouble consuming it in an emergency or even taking camping, though I would say my preference is for Mountain House. Everyone has their own favorite tastes and some may like this stuff. I suppose that having items from a few different producers gives a little variety that might be enjoyable when things get tough.

    I have ordered a lot from this company. Only when free samples. The coffee is good. I liked there strawberries. I have got the 72 hour kit a couple of times. As far as taste goes they are not bad. In needful times your not going to have perfect everything.

    I did have a line on the NEW "lrps" till this "LT" dropped the ball. Needless to say I don't associate with that outfit anymore. Back to that "trust" thing.

    The LRPS of nowadays are better than the ones before. I do have a nice stash of MREs and some of the Patriot and Wise as well. Figure the MREs will go first. But I have found them all to be good to eat. No complaints from me, of course I am from the "Goat Locker"
    Be safe.............the night is your friend.
