Something We Don't Normally See

Being originally from the Midwest and now from Texas and we have been in a lot of Wal-Mart Supercenters but this is something we did not expect to see. This is from a Emergency Food Preparedness display in the Idaho Falls Wal-Mart.

We were surprised not only that the display was in a Wal-Mart but also the variety. Here is a complete kit.

Butter powder, whole eggs, wow!!

Bob once went on a fly in fishing trip to Canada and to reduce weight they bought some powdered items but they insisted on real butter. Real butter helped the powdered potatoes, not sure what powdered butter on powdered potatoes would have been like.

Till next time,

  1. Twin Falls has a great big Mormon Temple. Friends of our who live here told us they have heard that Idaho has more Mormons than Utah does. I know that many Mormons keep a big stash of emergency food and water on hand (a year's supply?)... maybe the display you saw has something to do with that practice?

  2. Idaho Falls also has a big Mormon Temple, you may be on to something.

  3. You are definitely in Mormon country. Being prepared for emergencies is something we are taught from we are very young. Hard to do much when you live in an RV but we store as much as we can. Water is the bigger problem.
