Fast Markdown or Hot Seller? Costco Selling $6,000 Doomsday Kit with 25 Year Shelf-life That will Feed a Family For a Year



 From Daily Mail:

If the world ever implodes as a result of an apocalypse, the last thing you'll want to worry about is 'What should I make for dinner tonight?'

Thankfully, Costco has got you covered, with food kits that can feed a family for up to a year. 

The company is selling kits that range in price from about $1,000 to as much as $6,000.

Shelling out a couple grand will get you up to 600 cans, which amounts to more than 36,000 servings of food -- plenty to survive most doomsday scenarios.

The kits include a variety of freeze-dried, dehydrated and instant foods, including rice, beans, broccoli, bananas, strawberries, chicken and milk.

There's also a few essential spices and cooking ingredients, like 'butter powder.' 

Many of the freeze-dried items will last up to 25 years, while items like instant pinto bean flakes have a 30-year shelf life.  

Costco has been selling doomsday kits since at least last year, telling the Detroit Free Press: 'This is a great value with shipping included.' 

'Enjoy the comfort in knowing you have the essential foods your family will need to survive an emergency or natural disaster!,' Costco's website notes. 

'With 11 top quality flavorful and easy-to-prepare varieties in each pail, you can forget the hassle of creating an emergency meal plan for your family,' the site continues. 

The company hasn't disclosed how many doomsday kits it has sold, but judging by the user reviews made on the $4,000 Thrive 1-Year Food Storage kit, buyers are loving them.
