Recently ordered a 3 pack to test and keep in my earthquake kit. I ordered mine in July 2017 and the bars I received had a manufacture date of June 2017 so there’s plenty of shelf life left. I ope...

I’d disagree with the phrase “moist cookie-like texture” in the product description. These are dry and fragile when removed from the outer packaging. It’s almost impossible to pick up a bar without having it break into pieces so you need to be careful when you eat them. Even though they are dry they don’t make me thirsty so I can live with that. Last comment; these are heavy; a pound and a half per 3600 calorie pack so maybe not the best choice for a BOB.
