Perfect For Extending Preps....
Posted by Mark on Aug 18th 2010
First, I'd like to thank Nitro-Pak for their excellent service! I placed my first order last week and it arrived safely as promised - thank you! The Datrex bars were ordered primarily for emergency kits, but also to extend preps. When you think about it, adding a 3600 Calorie bar to a single days rations, can extend that ration into two or more days, (depending on the food of course). Datrex bars just make sense. I added two into my 72-hour MRE-kit, added three more into a 2-week prep and kept one aside to sample. The cube is perfectly wrapped and the individually wrapped bars have a very good taste. As Lou pointed out - a bit dry, (kind of reminds me of Halva), but still not thirst-provoking. A few sips of water and they went down easy. Datrex seems to be an effective and economical way to extend your preps a little further and have a piece of mind for nutrition in emergency situations... I'll be ordering a case as well...
Great Emergency Ration!

Purchased one 3600 Calorie cube to sample and was pleasantly surprised! The cube was perfectly sealed. Each of the 18 bars was indiviually wrapped for easy use. They tasted like a regular cookie with a little hint of coconut. Very tasty but a little dry as can be expected. Several people in my office sampled the bars and all were impressed and asked that I buy them a few blocks for their 72 hour emergency kits. I also have sampled the "Mainstay" rations and the Datrex were a lot better in taste, texture and packaging. I'll be ordering a case now!!
