Emergency kit part deux

Ok we have established that you need water. Now what are you gonna wash down with it? This doesn't have to be any more difficult than you make it. When you go shopping take the family with you so they can pick out some stuff they like. While you may be perfectly happy with 6 cases of vienna sausages not everyone is likely to share your gastronomic preferences. Being camped out without the creature comforts is stressful enough without not even being able to stomach the limited culinary selection at your disposal. Also there is the fact that once disaster season has passed you'll be able to make use of it. Just make sure everything is non-perishable. If you followed advice and stockpiled plenty of water then you'll be able to boil noodles which can go underneath almost anything you can coax out a can.
