“Don’t leave home without it.”
Back in the mid-Seventies, the American Express credit card company came up with this very catchy slogan. In fact, it was so catchy and became so popular that more than 40 years later, people still associate the phrase with the company.
Well, I can think of something else you should never leave home without. It’s food bars.
Let me explain why.
Most important, food bars contain the calories necessary to provide you with energy. And some food bars are nutritious as well. A close second is their portability. And let’s not forget convenience. They require no preparation, including water or heat.
It’s a very simple formula with a food bar. Open it up. Eat it. Feel energized.
Ideal for now; perfect in a crisis
And here’s something else that makes food bars a good idea. They’re not only perfect for the occasional snack when life is moving along smoothly. They’re also great in a crisis situation when you need energy but don’t have time to cook.
Keep some in your pantry at home. Store a bunch of them in your bug-out bag. Keep a boxful in your vehicle. And have some sitting in a drawer at work.
That way, anytime you need one, a food bar will be right there waiting for you. Whether you’re taking a leisurely hike or heading quickly away from a disaster, food bars will be just what you need at the time.
They might serve to curb your appetite until you can get a bigger meal. Or they might be a late-night snack so you don’t go to bed hungry. Or if you’re sleeping outdoors, they can provide some warmth.
What you want in a food bar
As with most food, you have some choices when it comes to food bars. A number of companies make them.
What you want to look for are food bars that are nutritious and will give you the carbohydrates you need. You want food bars that stand up to high temperatures. And which have a long shelf life – like five years – and still taste fresh.
You also want food bars that taste great. And that can give both your brain and your body an instant boost. And that are filled with vitamins and minerals.
And just as important as everything else – if not more so – they should taste great.
There’s Plenty of options
If you search for “food bars” or “energy bars” online, you’ll see hundreds of options. While what you choose should come down to personal taste, you should also consider shelf life and value.
