Hinode..Harvest Blend Rice shelf life?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

Has anyone checked out the shelf life of UNOPENED Hinode Harvest Blend Rice? Thats that partially cooked, vitamen fortified rice, wild rice and dehydrated veggies mix., We really like the stuff and its makes the base for a lot of meals. Just put some gravey on it and you have a dish. Sam's has it for $4.96 for a jug of 52 oz. Thats pretty cheap for this mix,.. I think. Went to both WalMart and Sams today. Didn't see any signs of carts that looked like stocking up. However, our paper has been running articles about y2k and I know there are a lot more out there preparing than what is apparent. But I did hear a woman laughingly say to her husband, " get a can of Spam, honey, so you are ready for Y2k". I wanted to slap her! I keep saying I am not buying any more food, and I keep right on hauling it home. And now that we know we can keep the freezer running enuff to keep it frozen, that means that I can buy butter and meat and have ICE. So before the end of Oct, I want to get a couple of cases of butter, a whole bunch of hot dogs from Costo and some pot roasts that I can cook in the bush box. Right now we are trying to eat up whats in there so I can start afresh. When people ask on this forum about occupation after TSHF, it comes to mind that I will run a grocery store out of my house like they do in the villages of Latin America. LOL

Taz...who is putting true meaning into the word "hoarding".

Taz, I have used the Harvest blend rice mix and have kept it very well OPENED for a year. I imagine the shelf life unopened should be good for at least two years. It is delicious!
