Default Where to find Emergency Ration Bars in AK

Looking at these as an alternative to MREs for a go bag. Any place to buy them without resorting to mail order?

If these are what I think they are, eagle enterprises might have them. They put them in lifeboats. Taste like flavored crisco, but are packed with calories and vitamins.

I got my Mainstay bars mail order. Easiest way to do it and the shipping wasn't bad.

Yep, that's what I was thinking, They meet USCG approval for lifeboats. As I mentioned, Eagle Enterprises might have them, if not, they can definitely get them. Not sure it would be cheaper than mail order though, but they would be an option for people living in Anchorage or Homer.

Did I mention they taste like SH!T. I guess it's better than nothing though and pretty easy to store a lot of calories.

MY brother had some near expired military flight ones that we tried on a hiking trip that went long. They tasted like coconut and were not bad at all. I would love to get a hold of a few of these to add to my stock. Any ideas where they are recently??

Ok, update, Sportsmans warehouse does not have them, I searched the whole store and asked a few employees. Drop zone does not have them either. I will check Eagle enterprises. If I can't get them in Anchorage, I will have to buy online. Dont want to tho.

Yeah, we did some serious looking and it ended up being the quickest, and fiscally best solution.

I always prefer to try to get stuff from people up here... the only thing is the kicker everyone knows... the answer to "do you have X" "I can get it in!"

No, see, I have money burning a hole now. You're losing out on an impulse buy bud... and I'm not the only impulsive buyer that thinks they need a new flux capacitor for the transmogrification decapitulator.
