Any high-stress disastrous event will create a definite morale issue for most people. The absence of normal life comforts combined with potential life-altering conditions will wreak havoc on people – especially children. Having as part of any food storage system some specific foods to boost – even just a little – the morale of friends and family is simple and inexpensive.
Here are 5 morale-boosting foods with a long shelf-life:
Jelly Beans – Jelly Beans provide an explosive amount of flavors as well as a sugar rush. Shelf Life: 1-2 years.
M&M’s – Chocolate is one of the most popular comfort foods. M&M’s themselves are a popular favorite. Shelf Life: 1 year
Starburst – A fruity fix when times are tough? Starburst fit the bill perfectly. Shelf Life: 2-3 years.
Peppermint Hard Candy – Long lasting with an intense peppermint flavor. Shelf Life: 12-18 months.
MRE Cakes – Candy is great but MRE cakes will provide a smile when it seems impossible. Shelf Life: up to 7 years.
It would be recommended to store all of these foods – even the MRE desserts – in a vacuum sealed bag via a Foodsaver to extend life as far as possible.
While there is not a food in existence that can fix property destruction and heal wounds – the mental anguish often associated with disasters may be lessened just a bit – with morale boosting foods.
