Friday has rolled around again; where does the time go? It seems like yesterday that I was writing the Survival Buzz. Anyway, today I am thrilled to let you know that Backdoor Survival sponsor, Buy Emergency Foods, is back again with another “Free Food Friday” giveaway.
This time around, the prize will be a 120 serving Legacy Foods Breakfast Bucket valued at $230. This fantastic food bucket includes a Multi Grain Cereal Mix, Maple Oatmeal with Brown Sugar, Strawberry Creamy Wheat, and Old Fashioned Pancake Mix. All are non-GMO, Vegetarian, and Kosher-certified so you know they are good.
More about the giveaway in a moment. First I want to tell you about a Legacy Foods product that I have been testing for my own long term storage.
Legacy Foods Meal Replacement Protein Shakes
Before I begin, I need to tell you that I am not a fan of liquid meal replacement shakes. That is a personal bias that is most likely due to being overweight as a teen and using “diet shakes” in an attempt to drop pounds. That said, that was then and this is now. Protein shakes are no longer a chemical factory in liquid form.
The Legacy Foods MegaOne meals are real food. They are made from 28 super foods that are vegan, gluten free, and non-GMO. Each serving provides 30 grams of protein and even more when mixed with milk instead of water.
The real question, though, is how do they taste? Of the three flavors (chocolate, vanilla, and super berry), I have only tried the chocolate. I found it to be chocolaty but not overly sweet. Someone with a sweet tooth may want to add some additional sweetener but I felt it was fine as is.
These shakes come in a Mylar bag and include an O2 absorber. They have a shelf life of over 10 years making them ideal for long term storage. Plus, if you are a fan of protein shakes or smoothies, you might want to consider using the MegaOne meals for daily use as well.
Here is the part you have been waiting for. By now you know the drill; record your entry in the Rafflecopter below. You can sign in with your email account or Facebook, the choice is yours. The best way to start is by clicking on “Free Entry for Everyone”. After that, each option you select represents an additional entry. There are a number of different options so pick and choose or select them all.
The deadline is 6:00 PM Pacific next Tuesday with the winner notified by email and announced on the Rafflecopter in the article. Please note that the winner must claim their prize within 48 hours or an alternate will be selected.
The Final Word
I hope you have been enjoying the Friday giveaways. It is through the generosity of my many sponsors that I am able to bring these to you and hope that you will pay it forward by visiting their websites and looking around to see if there is something that interests you.
I know that in the case of Buy Emergency Foods, you will find great value and the highest of standards when it comes to food quality, In addition, if you are new to freeze dried products, you are going to want to investigate their sample kit which is a great way to do some taste testing without making a huge investment.
I hope you will take the time to enter the Legacy Breakfast Food Bucket giveaway. Someone is going to win and it just might be you!
Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Bargain Bin: For your discernment, here are of some items mentioned today as well as some personal and BDS reader favorites.
Tac Force TF-705BK Tactical Assisted Opening Folding Knife 4.5-Inch Closed: This is a great knife that is currently priced at about $8.60 with free shipping. Not only that, it is ranked as the #1 best seller at Amazon in both the camping and hunting knives categories. The reviews raved about this knife so I bought one, used it, and and can recommend it. See The Inexpensive Tac-Force Speedster Outdoor Knife.
Note: the price can vary by color so if you are not particular, scroll through the colors and safe a couple of bucks.
Dorcy LED Wireless Motion Sensor Flood Lite: Don’t let the $20 price lead you to think this wireless flood light is wimpy. I have two of these and feel that these lights are worth double the price. Using D-cell batteries, the Dorcy floodlight will light up a dark room or a dark stairway in an instant. I can not recommend these enough.
Coghlans Waterproof Matches 10-pack: There are 10 boxes of 40 matches each for about $5. That is a good deal for 400 waterproof matches.
Morakniv Craftline Q Allround Fixed Blade Utility Knife: ANOTHER FAVORITE! Also known as the Mora 511, this is now my favorite knife. It is made of Swedish steel and is super sharp. Many Backdoor Survival have emailed me indicating this is now their favorite knife too. I paid $12 for this knife; it was worth $12 and of course is a steal at under $9.
FordEx Group 300lm Mini Cree Led Flashlight: FAVORITE! Here we go with another flashlight. At the time of this writing, this one is about $4.00 with free shipping. It is super mini sized, bright and waterproof. Plus, it uses a single, standard AA sized battery.
Blocklite Ultra Bright 9V LED Flashlight: I now own six of these little gems. There is a similar flashlight called the Pak-Lite (which is more expensive) but it does not have a high-low switch like this one. Less than $10. These little flashlights just go and go, plus, they make good use of those re-purposed 9V alkaline batteries that you have recharged with your Maximal Power FC999 Universal Battery Charger.
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter: The LifeStraw is considered the most advanced, compact, ultra light personal water filter available. It contains no chemicals or iodinated resin, no batteries and no moving parts to break or wear out. It weighs only 2oz. making it perfect for the prepper. There is also a larger sized LifeStraw Family currently available with free shipping.
AquaPodKit – Emergency Drinking Water Have you considered storing water in your bathtub? The AquaPod is a bladder that you can use in your bathtub to store water if you know that a storm, flood, or hurricane is brewing.
A Practical Guide to Storing Food For the Long Term
99 cents for the eBook – also available in print!
When most people start thinking about family preparedness, they focus on food. Not shelter, gear, sanitation, power, self-defense or the myriad of other concerns that need to be addressed following an emergency or disaster situation. Quite simply, food is the number one concern people have second only to their concern for having an adequate supply of water.
The Prepper’s Guide to Food Storage is a book about food: What to store, how to store it and best practices. It is a roadmap for showing ordinary citizens that long-term food storage is not something that will overwhelm or burden the family budget.
This book is based upon my own tried and true personal experience as someone who has learned to live the preparedness lifestyle by approaching emergency preparedness and planning in a systematic, step-by-step manner. Nothing scary and nothing overwhelming - you really can do this!
