The LDS Store has the best price on canned long term food. They are not looking to make the profit they are looking to help people
Shipping is very inexpensive and fast
For new preppers this is a very very very cost effective way to get some basic supplies quickly
PRICE, QUALITY, and SERVICE in one package

@Maine-Marine has a good point. It is already canned and boxed for you. spaghetti bites are a particularly good product. They cook easier and are great especially for kids (and adults) to eat. As they are not so messy to eat. (Yep at 59 I am still a messy eater)
wheat not weat.. dang it

I'm a big fan of Emergency Essentials product. The Augason Farms product can be cheaper but they don't package the product as well. I also appreciate free freight from Walmart. The LDS cans are probably a better choice for folks with limited storage space.

I have never bought emergency essentials food but most of the rest of there products are chinese crap. Also for the $5 your saving i would pay for the LDS stuff packed in smaller cans. You have all your eggs in one basket with a 5gal bucket.
Has any one tryed rainy day foods cans? I got two of there verity cans. There dryed fruit is quite good and i think most of there stuff is cheaper than LDS and def cheaper than augason farms.
Here is my take on food storage. If you are only gonna keep say 100 lbs or less of wheat in storage... don't bother. Just keep more flour in your pantry and rotate it. This red wheat is the berry. It must be ground using a grain mill or similar, which aren't cheap. IMO, this hard red & white wheat is for bulk storage... large quantities. In large quantities, the price per pound is very important plus IMO, I'd rather have the superpails than #10 cans for long term, bulk storage. I do have a whole bunch of cans in storage but that is more along the lines of powdered eggs, baking powder, tomato powder, peanut powder, etc. Now all my #10 cans also come from Emergency Essentials because they are packaged with an oxygen absorber in a stainless steel can that is double-enameled to prevent aging and rust. I'd verify the LDS cans are packaged similarly or better. You know their specs on cans & if they add oxygen absorbers?
If I'm gonna be pulling out a grinder & making flour, then I have no issue opening a big pail. Why would anyone only want to grind 5.5 lbs during a crisis? My big use items, such as wheat, oats, rice, beans, pasta, etc are in pails. However, if I want seasonings or other product that would be used less, then I purchase in cans. I wouldn't want a 5 gallon pail of baking powder, tomato powder or powdered eggs.
As I asked before, you know the specs on the LDS cans? Do they use oxygen absorbers?
