  Survival Foods of the Zombie Apocalypse

A good many factors are going to become important if we ever were unfortunate enough to find ourselves in a zombie apocalypse. In addition to weapons and shelter, eventually, food is going to be an issue. When the Walmarts and Piggly Wigglys of the world are picked clean or filled with a shuffling horde of human chompers, what then?

Well, my friends, preparation is going to be key, and in a world where it’s survival of the fittest, we’re going to have to learn to collect and store food like a pack of winter-scared squirrels. Food won’t keep forever though, so here are a few ideas for snacks with long shelf lives.

Dry Pasta and Flour – Shelf life: 2-8 years

White Rice – Shelf life: 10 years

Canned Meats, vegetables and Fruits – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Coffee & Tea – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Dried Milk, Herbs & Spices – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Ramen Noodles – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Beans – Shelf life: 8-10 years

Soft Grains – Shelf life: 8 years

Hard Grains – Shelf life: 10-12 years

Alcohol (whiskey and vodka) – Shelf life: 10 years

Cornmeal – Shelf life: 8 months – 2 years

Salt – Shelf life: lifetime

Peanut Butter – Shelf life: 2-5 years

Sugar – Shelf life: lifetime

Wheat – Shelf life: lifetime

Baking Soda – Shelf life: lifetime

Dried Corn – Shelf life: lifetime

So, sexy survivalists, if you find yourself grocery shopping in the middle of a z-poc, mosey on past those perishables and load up on the foods that’ll keep you and your team of elite zombie fighters fed for years to come.
