25 Survival Foods You
Forgot to Buy
When it comes to survival foods, there are the staples such as
rice and beans and pasta that can be found in almost every bunker. But there's
a whole host of other great survival foods that are often overlooked.
If you're a prepper, then chances are you already have most of
the foods on this list, but I'm posting it on the off chance that you'll come

thus making your bag lighter.

you can get your hands on. You don't necessarily have to put all of these items
into your bug out bag—as I said, you don't want it to be too heavy. But I
encourage you to seriously consider each item. Take your location and personal
needs into account and decide whether they're worth including...
