FOOD STORAGE CAUTION: 5 Things to Watch Out for When Considering Food Storage
It’s a no brainer that having food storage is essential when preparing for a disaster. What’s difficult is knowing what you need and trusting who you’re buying from. Unfortunately scams still happen in the preparedness industry, so to help, we put together a list of 5 things to watch out for when choosing where to buy your food storage.
- Cheap Fillers like “Bonus Sauces” and “Drink Mixes”
Companies will often add “Sauces” or “Drink Mixes” to their packages to build an illusion of prosperity. They advertise “more” servings and “more” calories, when in fact you are getting less wholesome food. A package titled 120 serving fruit and sauces can be as much as 40% sauce. That leaves as little as 70 servings of actual fruit. Same goes for drink mixes, a package labeled 600 serving sounds appealing, but take into account that ¼ of those servings could be drink mix or pudding mix. Try surviving two weeks on “Grape Drink” and half a bowl of diced apples. No Thanks. Caution! We do not provide cheap fillers!
- Misleading Serving Size
Make sure that the serving size is a reasonable amount. Some of these “food storage experts” out there are more like “deception experts”. They label the packaging in a way that is almost incomprehensible, or they offer servings that are grossly small. Our servings are fit for a king. (Average serving size- 3.5oz before preparation)
- Calories per serving
On average our competition offers roughly 257.5 calories per serving. Our average is 370 calories per serving with some products soaring upwards of 470 calories per serving. In this industry, a difference of 100+ calories is revolutionary.
- Package weight
Obviously more weight equals more food. In an emergency situation you will be grateful for every ounce. Our 30 pound Entrée bucket trumps all of the competition by as much as 10lbs. On long term packages that weight will add up quick.
-in a direct comparison of Wise and My Food Storage on the “4320 serving” year supply package, My Food Storage dominated Wise by an astonishing 312lbs.
- Shipping time
Unfortunately not all companies can operate at our production speed. Back orders and shipping delays can hold your order up for weeks, causing unnecessary stress in this already time consuming process. Our product will ship within 48 hours of the ordering.
