I posted a topic in the tv section recently about preppers , that is people who are preparing for a future world collapse of some kind. Following the recent sad events with the shootings in America I added to that topic as the press had made a point of saying that the murders mother was a prepper and she was shot by her son with one of her own guns.
While goggling the story I also came across sites that sell prepper supplies and was amazed at what I have seen selling.Tinned food with a 25year life at around the £35-40 mark and dried packet foods at equally expensive prices. Seems to me someone is making a fortune out of other peoples fears.
I was always under the assumption that tinned food has a very long shelf life anyway if the tin is undamaged so what makes this stuff any different?
