More fun with Survival Tabs. This couple tries 4 days on only Survival Tabs. A candid review by non preparedness types.4 part series. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmJUPm6Hqd4
Before I found these vids I tried my own test of Survival Tabs. I also found the 12 a day/240 cal to be an exercise in starvation. I thought about food all the time and it became very difficult to concentrate after 8 hours. I decided to try to get about 2000 calories for the day, divided into 3 meals of 33 tablets, eaten 10 an hour. Although I felt more satisfied I still felt hungry all the time.
Nutritionally, energy wise and comfort wise I am better off eating 2000 calories worth of Balance bars or similar. The Survival Tabs appear to be just dried milk and sugar. They taste like sweet, powdered coffee creamer. They don't dissolve quickly in hot coffee or at all cold milk.
The Original Food Tabs have a slightly different formula and flavors. I plan to try them for fun, so I'll report back later. They are made by the same company.http://www.foodtabs.com/catalog/
