Not all "year supplies" are created equal. Here are the cold, hard facts: I want the very best value for every dollar I am going to spend, and so do you. So today, let's talk about "calories per dollar".
There are a lot of different kinds of food storage to choose from, and sometimes it's hard to understand the value of what you are getting.
Now, these "basics" are a great value, but also require baking and cooking from scratch. Contrast that with our Gourmet 2000. This supply is mostly just-add-water meals (Beef Stroganoff, Chicken Stew, Pasta Primavera), so even I couldn't mess it up.
Calories per dollar is pretty easy to determine. Simply divide The total number of calories in a supply (Our handy Food Storage Analyzer makes this extremely easy to determine) by the total cost of the supply.
Thinking in terms of calories per dollar has completely changed the way I look at food storage. Understanding, and looking for, the most calories per dollar will help you shop smarter when looking at all the different options on the market.
