I am looking for what bars have a LOT of calories and last the longest. I keep an emergency pack in my vehicle and never touch it so I am looking for something with shelf life of hopefully years - candy bar size things only. Something like pemmican bars - which I know about but never tried.

Fuzzy Meal Bars.

For some reason, I’m questioning the shelf life of anything called a “Fuzzy” meal bar! Maybe you need some help with rebranding it, Cecil ;-)

Pemmican. You can buy it or make your own, just real time consuming.

I once read of a guy that kept a can of dog food in his car. It lasts forever and he'd never be tempted to snack on it during a long road trip or whatever, so it would always be there in case of DIRE EMERGENCY

Don instead of leaving them in for 10 years why don’t you take them on your hunting trips every year and eat them and put new ones in there? Don’t eat the wee little black things!

"why don’t you take them on your hunting trips every year and eat them and put new ones in there?".....makes sense to me.

You won't need to worry about how long they last. The mice will eat them before they go bad. Before you ask, go ahead and eat them after the mice get into them. It won't hurt you in the least.

As long as the mice are organic free ranging grass fed, you should be fine. Just tuck them under the seat. Mice don’t generally get into small confined spaces like that. They’ll never find it.

Millenium bars offer the best I've seen. Five years. I have a few cases at the house.

A little off topic but I've wanted to make old world culture cured salami for a long time,,,,,now that I have my deer hanging cooler I have a place I can control temp & humidity & have full intentions of making cured salami,,,,,

Just a thought ,,,plenty of information on the subject is a Google search away.

Trial, try Cliff Bar brand coconut chocolate chip and especially the white chocolate macadamia nut bars. They will restore your tolerance of energy bars.

It would be in my emergency kit which mice cannot get in. 5 years is good enough.

Consider vacuum sealing them

What fuzzy said. The way they are packaged is crucial.

Don, next time the family fruit cake comes your way at Christmas, cut it into the sizes you want and put them in baggies. Don't worry about the mice, they'll leave them alone.

From: Brotsky

...and if your family doesn't have a fruit cake it's time to look in the mirror.

Consider eating and rotating the nasty things sitting in your frozen/overheated/frozen and repeat vehicle versus letting them sit for years. I mean, why would you want to eat crap that has been sitting around for years when the going gets tough?
