**I received a sample pack free of charge in order to do an honest review. No other compensation was received. My thoughts are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**
There have been so many natural disasters lately such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes. Are you prepared for an emergency? What about if something happens and you are unable to work and you no longer have an income or you have a very limited income? Are you prepared to keep your family fed? This is a constant worry for me, but thankfully I recently discovered The Storage Room.
Having a food storage supply is very important. If a natural disaster, economic trouble or political turbulence were to happen, you need to rely on yourself to supply food. The average grocery store only carries about 72 hours of food and in the event of an emergency, that food can be cleared out very quickly. If you have ever had the threat of a natural disaster, then you probably have experienced seeing your grocery store almost cleaned out for this reason.
What sets The Storage Room apart from others, is that their food supply is freeze-dried. Freeze-dried foods are so easy to use, you just add water. Imagine pouring water in a pouch and having a ready-to-eat meal in a couple of minutes. It’s that easy! For some foods, such as the fruits and vegetables, they can be eaten dry for a pleasant crunch. Freeze-dried foods taste great because the processing is very gentle on food.
Another great thing about freeze-dried foods is that it has a 25 year shelf life. So think of it this way, if you buy a freeze-dried food supply and have a newborn child this year, you can have a grandchild by the time you need to think about buying more food storage. That’s a long time and makes me realize it’s worth every penny!
We received a sample pack so I could try out a few things and see how they taste. They came in packets and they had instructions right on the labels as well as a list of ingredients and nutritional information.
The first thing we tried was a mix of Freeze-Dried Strawberries & Bananas. I have had freeze-dried fruit before and I love it. These tasted delicious and I could seriously eat them all day long. You can also add water and basically “bring them back to life”. So I tried that and they did look and taste like real strawberries and bananas, but I personally prefer them freeze-dried. I just love that crunchiness!
The other two packs we received were soups. We got Cheddar Broccoli Soup and Hearty Potato Soup. We tried the potato soup first and I was really surprised at the directions. You just mixed 1/4 cup of the soup mix with 1 cup water and then boiled it for 3-4 minutes. I was really wary about trying it, but by the time it was done cooking, it smelled delicious!
It was really good and I could clearly see and taste all of the vegetables. It was creamy and not at all watery. The 1/4 cup was for one serving size and it was a really good sized bowl. I couldn’t even finish it because it filled me up quickly.
The Cheddar Broccoli soup looked like a powdered mix, but I was optimistic this time. I added the water and let it boil.
It was seriously amazing! It had a delicious cheddar cheese taste and lots of tiny pieces of broccoli. I loved it and my daughter couldn’t get enough of it!
They were so easy to make and tasted delicious. I can’t believe that this food is food storage! I would eat it any day right now, so to think that I could feed my family delicious food in an emergency, that makes me excited. I checked out the prices at The Storage Room and they were decent. A one year food storage supply for each member of my family is what I would eventually like to get, but that is a lot of money. Still, the one month food storage is a great way to start and I think if I start buying a few of those every few months, we should be able to start out with a good amount of food storage.
Don’t wait until an emergency happens, you need to plan ahead and have an emergency food bucket now. So be sure you check out The Storage Room.
