    Costco sells out of 26 lb. doomsday mac & cheese tub

    Costco’s “doomsday” product line is apparently taking off.

    The wholesaler made news this week for selling out of its 26-pound bucket of macaroni and cheese that has a shelf life of up to 20 years.

    Personally, I am more of a quality over quantity guy but this is actually a great idea in case of an emergency/natural disaster. Even better for homeless shelters.

    LOL a bucket of mac and cheese that will last 20 years? There's no way I would ever eat that.

    You can just buy individual cans of food- those things will last for a century. I'm sure it will taste better too.

    When I contemplate a disaster that would cause me to consume 26 pounds of Costco mac and cheese I am reminded of the line from TREASURE ISLAND where Long John Silver proclaims... "them that dies will be the lucky ones".

    Canned food does not last that long. It usually rusts and starts leaking after a year or two.

    I've purchased quite a bit of freeze dried stuff from Costco. They had decent deals on decent stuff.

    These, in particular, taste pretty good (considering they're survival food) - https://www.costco.com/Mountain-Hous...100371489.html

    Not if kept in a climate controlled environment. Since it was vaccum packed it will "last" much longer but color and texture will likely degrade over time.

    How long does canned food remain edible and retain its nutritional content after it is purchased?

    Canned food has a shelf life of at least two years from the date of processing. Canned food retains its safety and nutritional value well beyond two years, but it may have some variation in quality, such as a change of color and texture. In fact, canned food has an almost indefinite shelf life at moderate temperatures (75° Fahrenheit and below). Canned food as old as 100 years has been found in sunken ships and it is still microbiologically safe! We don't recommend keeping canned food for 100 years, but if the can is intact, it is edible. Rust or dents do not affect the contents of the can as long as the can does not leak. If the can is leaking, however, or if the ends are bulged, the food should not be used.
