I purchased one of these you can survive cans with low expectations and it did not surpass them. This should be labeled as You Can Survive Snack Time. It does have a few good items in it but nothing that warrants a price tag of 12.00.
Let’s go over the contents and their uses:
Folding stove: Easily the best part of this kit, this small folding wing stove is great for boiling small pots of water.
Fuel tabs: essential for using the wing stove or starting a camp fire, the second best part of the entire kit.
Strike anywhere matches: Generic strike anywhere matches, OK for normal use but in bad weather it may be hard to get a fire going.
Poly water bag: (aka a zip lock) a small off brand zip lock bag that can be used to carry extra water or a few other items, not very durable, mine ripped the first time I opened it.
Beef & chicken broth: Good for warming up on a cold evening but not very nutritional, and high in salt.
High energy, vitamin powder: mine came with orange EmergenC powder, gives you a boost of vitamins. This is Ok for a breakfast drink but not very filling and a bit chalky.
Hard candy: simple jolly ranchers, just a sugar and morale boost.
Tea bags: another morale boosting beverage.
Sugar packets, used to sweeten the included tea.
Aluminum foil: heavy duty foil can be folded into a cup or bowl or wrapped around a small food item to help cook it. I find this a bit useless considering the can works as a cup and bowl.
All in all, this product is a great novelty item, keep it on your desk and use it as a joke, or use it as a stocking stuffer for your favorite prepper.
As a survival tool it falls short. The best thing about this is that it can be reused and repacked with other more beneficial items that suit your personal needs, once it has been opened. You never need to assume that something pre-packed and off the shelf is going to have everything you need to survive in it.
