This seems like a pretty decent deal compared to what I've seen out there for brands like Mountain House...wonder how it tastes?

Re: Costco pushing shelf reliance food
Need a breakdown of how many Calories per day ... and a further breakdown of what those Calories are (protein, fat, sugar, carbs etc.)

SOME prepackaged foods "claim" to be a lot of meals and be good for x amount of time ... but that is ONLY if you will just be consuming 800 calories per day or so.

The average adult male is going to need somewhere between 2000 to 2400 calories per day to maintain even keel and the average woman will need that less 300 to 400 calories (say 1600 to 2100 calories per day for the female). Below that and you are on a weight loss diet ... maybe even a SEVERE weight loss diet.

Taste and ease of preparation is important ... but the calorie count and breakdown of what those calories are composed of is even MORE important.

Hi, I an Independent consultant with Shelf Reliance. We are doing home Parties now (so you can try the delicious THRIVE food before you buy it), so I sell Shelf Reliance products for absolutely the lowest price, guaranteed. We also are price matching (so if you find Shelf Reliance product for less at Costco, Walmart, Sam's Club or any other big retailer we will match that price). To learn more about how to get the special party price discount, just contact me @ [email protected] or call (801)472-7196.

As to calories, I am 45 (woman) and can consume 1,000 calories a day, and not lose a DAMN thing. Even with exercising three days a week at CURVES. Now, if I take a stimulant like Stimerex ES, then the weight will come off (with a reduced calorie diet).

BTW this THRIVE stuff is kind of pricey, isn't it? Most people in this economy cannot afford this.

Mountain House are meals ready to heat (boil) and eat. The costco package is ingredients, wheat, rice, etc and various fruits, veggies and condiments.

Not comparable

Re: Costco pushing shelf reliance food
I got a few cans from this guy:

[link to www.neonoah.shelfreliance.com]

We tried the corn and it was surprisingly pretty damn good. I mean even freeze dried it tasted exactly how corn should taste. And this was uncooked, straight from the can. It was incredible!

I remember freeze-dried stuff from the past being pretty lame but this stuff was actually good. I had the strawberries and mango as well and they both were good.

Not too bad. You want to compare prices and pre-cooked versus uncooked? How about you try eating the stuff first? No point in saving a few bucks if the food tastes horrible and is full of funky chemicals. We're going to buy a few cans of veggies and make a veggie trail-mix for healthy snacking at work. This stuff also rocks for eating today because the stuff won't go back in a week after opening like fresh veggies and fruit.

It's worth a try to order a few cans just to see how you like it.

Re: Costco pushing shelf reliance food
The thrive products offered by Costco and Multi-level Marketing company Shelf Reliance are low end products and are lacking in good nutrition and have a lot of empty calories compared to many of the other products out there. They would get you by if need be, but I would only recommend them as a base product. You will need to add other food products to create a nutritious meal. Alone it is very bland will leave you hungry. I would try to get samples of other companies products before committing to a huge stock pile of Thrive.I Find it kind of overpriced and "nitch-ey" - built for people who had not already taken steps to build their food storage. If you do buy, I would purchase it from Costco as opposed to Shelf Reliance. Unless of course you are into multi-level marketing.

Second that and also, what kind of stuff do they have in that aisle? Is it mostly flashlights and stuff, or what kind of food selections did they choose to highlight? How did they indicate "emergency preparedness" is it on a big overhead sign? Do they have any educational materials, brochures, in the aisle?

Just curious, that is interesting marketing, I'm sure they wouldn't be doing it if they hadn't had such a big demand and people asking.
