Re: Emergency foods
A search of your local supermarket will yield alot of cheap food that can be used for emergencies. Spam, vienna sausage, beans, canned veggies, etc, all come foil or can packed these days. All of it has a decent shelf life too. Not as long as MRE's etc, but most of these items will last at least a year if stored properly. There's really no need to buy into that "lasts for 20 years" gimmick baloney and get ripped off spending hundreds of dollars for crappy tasting freeze dried garbage.
