Food Insurance: Sitewide Savings Up To 84% Off

This morning, I received an e-mail about a special sales event that’s ending soon over at the website of affiliate marketing partner Food Insurance (reviewed here). From the Kaysville, Utah- based vendor of emergency food and other items:

Sitewide Savings Up To 84% OFF
FINAL WEEK!
plus FREE SHIPPING on orders over $150
New Items Added!

Right now, save up to 84% on Food Insurance®’s most popular items with sitewide savings! Stock up now with these unheard of prices. Special pricing is limited to in-stock inventory only. Several new items have been added this week, including:

• close out and clearance items- up to 84% OFF
• 130+ cases including meals, fruits, veggies, & drinks- up to 65% OFF
• preparedness tools and gear- up to 70% OFF

While on the Food Insurance website putting together this post, I noticed under “clearance items” is the same backpack (“food insurance certified backpack”) I currently have in my possession. I really like it. Regular price $69.99. Now $19.99- or 71 percent off.

Needless to say, I just got done ordering another one, with plans for turning both of them into “bug-out bags.”

Backpack (Only) Now $19.99

Backpack Now $19.99

ANY CHARACTER HERE

Recently, I’d been running a Food Insurance banner ad along this blog’s sidebar that contained a coupon code for free shipping. When ordering that backpack online, I entered “SHIP2FREE” in the area for coupon codes, and the $4.99 shipping charge was history.

Total cost for backpack- $19.99 with free shipping. Love it.

Lots of sitewide savings going on in this last week of the promotion. Click on the banner ad below and you’ll be taken over to the Food Insurance website. Please note that I receive a commission for products purchased via the link.

Product Review: Daily Bread Freeze-Dried Food

As part of my “Project Prepper” series of posts, I recently mentioned that I picked up a couple of Mountain House Classic Buckets of freeze-dried food at some terrific prices.

I bought the Mountain House brand despite never tasting it. That being said, I did do a significant amount of research beforehand, and most reviews of that label were very positive.

Still, probably not the best way to go about selecting emergency food. After all, what if it tastes like crap? Kind of demoralizing if WTSHTF I’m stuck eating something I’d rather not.

I’ve decided to conduct some “product reviews” of freeze-dried food on this blog in the coming weeks. While taste is subjective, I’d like to see if I did okay in acquiring those Mountain House buckets, or if other “major-brand” foods of this type are more “tastier.”

First up is Daily Bread (offered by Food Insurance). I blogged on March 21, 2013 (Project Prepper, Part 11):

Now, some time ago, I was introduced to freeze-dried foods by the folks over at the National Geographic Channel as part of a “thank you” package for blogging about Doomsday Preppers. I received a sample of beef stroganoff from a well-known company that prepares and sells such food. Busting it out for lunch one day, I found it to be easy to make (open package, add boiling water, seal, and wait), and rather surprisingly, it didn’t taste all that bad. A little bland, but some pepper cured that.

More recently, I had the opportunity to try some different freeze-dried food samples from a company called Daily Bread, which according to their website is “nationally recognized as the leading brand in the emergency food supply industry.” I understand their products are recommended by Glenn Beck of TheBlaze TV and Sean Hannity of FOX News. I received samples of their beef stroganoff and lasagna with meat sauce and had them for lunch on two different days. Once again I found them easy to make. However, I experienced first-hand why Daily Bread received the recommendations it did from these two media personalities. Their beef stroganoff was considerably more tastier than the other brand (no pepper needed this time). And the lasagna with meat sauce was delicious.

Now, I noticed some of the noodles in each beef stroganoff sample were a little “crunchy” upon eating. I suspected that might have been because I poured the contents of each package into a bowl (which was permissible per the directions for each) upon completing their preparation rather than letting the food sit in their pouches and eating it from there. When I had the lasagna with meat sauce for lunch, I just ate it right from the pouch. And you know what? Perfectly “cooked” with no crunchy food.

Anyway, that’s been my experiment with freeze-dried foods to date. And I’m thinking they’ll probably play a major role in my emergency food supplies based on my experience so far.

Now, sometime after I wrote that, I decided to obtain another sample of Daily Bread freeze-dried food through Food Insurance. A 2.54 oz (72g) pouch containing “Freeze Dried Chicken Teriyaki with Rice” was sent to me. It was billed as “A Sweet Combination of Oriental Flavors.” We shall see…

Daily Bread Freeze-Dried Food Pouch

Preparing the meal was easy. I tore open the pouch, removed the oxygen absorber, added 1 cup of boiling water to the pouch, stirred the contents, pinched the pouch shut, let it sit for the maximum recommended time (9 minutes) to ensure it was perfectly “cooked,” and then busted it open. Here’s the final product:

Daily Bread Freeze-Dried Food Cooked

After bringing the freeze-dried entrée back to life, I grabbed a glass of water (will just be drinking water during this series of reviews to ensure my taste buds aren’t compromised) and carried the pouch plus water over to my front room so I could chow down on what was going to be my lunch.

By the way, the pouch had some heft to it (stirring in the boiling water makes one 10 ounce serving).

Verdict

The Daily Bread chicken teriyaki with rice was thoroughly-“cooked”- nothing crunchy- and was excellent tasting- not too sweet, and definitely not bland.

I was also pretty full after eating that single serving, with no immediate desire for a side dish or dessert.

On a side note, I actually found myself trying to scrape up any last morsel of the meal with my spoon while watching TV.

“Give us this day our Daily Bread.” That’s for sure.

Daily Bread freeze-dried food is sold through Food Insurance (one of this blog’s affiliate marketing partners- reviewed here), and right now the Kaysville, Utah-based company is offering a completely FREE entrée sample to the public- meaning no shipping and handling charges, and no obligation to buy. This free food sample pack is being made available for a very limited time only.
