    Costco sells out of 26 lb. mac & cheese tub with 20-year shelf life





    The cheese and pasta are packaged in separate bulk “Metalite pouches” with oxygen absorbers, “to protect the quality and ensure a long shelf life.”

    That's a lot of mac & cheese.... I wonder how long 26 pounds would last.

    26 or 52 days depending.
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    Over the last few years, as reported by FOX BusinessOpens a New Window., Costco has been rolling out several products for doomsday-type scenarios.
    In March, the company made headlines for rolling out three emergency food kits on its website, ranging from $1,000 up to $6,000, all of which are designed to feed a family of four for a year.
    The retailer first offered emergency food kits over six years ago. One reviewer, who purchased its first version called Thrive for $3,999.99, three years ago said her family used their tax return to purchase it.
    “The food shipped two days after I placed the order and arrived three days after that. Very impressive. All 63 boxes fit nicely under the 15 stairs going to the basement. Make sure you note which boxes contain items with a shorter shelf life so you can keep them more accessible,” the reviewer wrote.

    Would it be possible to use freeze dried cheese and bags of macaroni?

    Cheddar Cheese Powder - Cooking Baking - Nuts.com


    ....don't know how it would work out cost wise compared to the Costco item. But I did notice it only takes 2 tablespoons for a recipe.
