Costco is now selling disaster kits for all you preppers out there

Prepping for the end of the world just got way easier.

Beloved bulk retailer Costco is now offering a “1 Year Emergency Food Kit” for anyone who’s getting ready to hunker down at the possibility of disaster. It seems like a pretty simple and smart move for the store, which already sells items in bulk. 

The kit will run you $999.99, which is actually pretty reasonable considering it comes with 6,200 servings of food, which is apparently enough to feed one person for an entire year on a 1,200 calorie diet. 

According to the kit’s description on Costco’s site, it consists of freeze-dried fruits and veggies, rice, wheat, beans, meat, and instant milk. While eating out of gallon cans doesn’t sound very appetizing, it will likely suffice for the end of the world. 

Jokes aside, the kit is actually a great option for those in areas at an elevated risk for disaster, such as an area that is expecting a large earthquake like southern California. 

“The idea came about making a great starter kit for a family who wanted to prepare for any kind of disaster.  This is a great value with shipping included,” a representative from Costco told the Detroit Free Press. 

If that kit isn’t enough, the company also offers other more expensive kits that can feed up to four people for an entire year.
