I am always looking for interesting food news stories to post on this blog and this week I have found one of the best yet. According to The Independent, bulk-food retailer Costco is now selling an apocalypse package. For the price of £4,330, approximately $5,999, you can feed your family for a year in the event of a major catastrophe.
If you are a single person and you are worried about the cost of buying such a large package, there is an alternative option for single people. The mega-pack for singe people comes at the price of just £721, or $999, for a year’s supply of food.
These packs contain everything you need to eat a balanced and nutritious diet for a year as they contain a range of dried products, including fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy, and proteins. The variety included in the packs also means you will not tire of eating the same foods every day.
To many, an apocalypse seems like a wild idea that is only seen in sci-fi movies. However, there is an endless list of potential catastrophes that could take place that could lead to a situation where people need such packs and more people than ever are taking this possibility seriously.
While there are no signs of anyone needing one of these packs right now, it is good to know that Costco is giving people the option of preparing for a worst-case scenario.
