Paula, please dont be offended, but read what you just posted. Does any of that look like Y2K preps?.

I just dont know why you posted it.

So what?

No offense Paula, but I think the cheese has slipped off your cracker.

I have Planters and Ritz in my stash.

-- Paula (, November 26, 1999.

hmm ... The first SHOULD be included in everyone's preps ... contains essential oils and is a very good source of protein.

EVERYTHING tastes better on a Ritz ... even TVP! :-)

the other two sound like great 'comfort' foods and snacks for the kids!

i have all - nuts, ritz, oreos, and wintergreen lifesavers. some of you don't? verry strange.

I'm a big fan of Ritz crackers. I was determined to have some in my stash. I have the bite sized sandwiches, and regular Ritz and then bought items like Easy Cheese to go with it. At K-Mart I was able to find a salami and a summer sausage that can be stored at room temperature until opened.

I've been waiting on the Oreo's until I spot the Christmas tins.

Hamster, I hope you haven't signed yourself up for diet fatigue.

Ritz and tuna get my vote!

The Planters Peanuts come in nice big cans at Sam's club. The way we have been buying (and eating) them, I thought maybe it was US that ran the profits up like that!

Ritz and Peanuts?? Absolutly !! They are in my cabinet. Right next to popcorn and chocolate. "Woman and children cannot live by bread alone" ;-)

I believe the LDS 3 day kit (the Mormon Bug-out-bag) includes nuts, crackers, and hard candy. These make perfect sense as they don't require preparation, store well, and have a lot of food value per weight.

I'll add them to my stores this weekend.

I also like granola bars. You don't need fancy, expensive back packer's food. For the short term, some good hard cheese and crackers will do just fine. I also like canned hash (Mary Kitchen brand), canned corn, canned peas. When I was in college, some meals were just a can of corn.

Hey ! almost forgot...Ritz has a receipt (southern spelling ;-) for Mock Apple pie...I've tried it and you cannot taste the difference! No eggs, no apples..Very good.

Time to cork the bottle and go to bed.
