Preparing a small resource of food and water since the political climate this fall looks unstable. What is the opinion of MREs? The ones on Ebay are very expensive. Perhaps the supermarket canned and packaged items would be less costly and better quality?
There are lots of options. It really just is up to your particular situation. I suggest geting something that tastes good. It's bad for moral to be in a situation requiring you to eat survival food and having it taste like crap.
