hard candy is a survival food

Jolly Rancher Original Flavors Hard Candy, 7-Ounce Bags (Pack of 12)Everyone should think about adding hard candy to their food cache.
It will provide a tasty supplement to beans and rice and wheat berries.
same effect as spices, add some flavor diversity to your meals.

we are in the process of moving into our new BOL (see my posts that start with GA2 for Green Acres 2) and we are 45 minutes from the nearest grocery store and so far mostly what we have on hand is the bulk and long term foods as a part of our long term storage.

It is just not satisfying staring at row upon row of canned foods and bags of rice and beans when you just want a little snack.

having mint and cinnamon hard candy has been great.
let's face it when SHTF there aren't gonna be bags of potato chips around for long.

I recommend the sugared variety because calories will be useful post SHTF.
Walmart carries bags of spearmint, peppermint, and cinnamon for $1 and each candy is individually wrapped.

I also got several other varieties from the Amazon grocery sales category.
