Survivalism gone mainstream? Costco's 1-year food supply is now just $799 and includes favorites like...
GLENN: And then also I noticed, I noticed this morning a 9/12er sent this in. Says, Glenn, maybe you're right, some sort of meltdown must be coming. At the top of their weekly e mail sales pitch, Costco is featuring a one year supply of food delivered to your home for $799. This is Costco, not some fringe group of survivalists who predict the world meltdown every week.
PAT: Wait a minute. That's a pretty good deal. $799? $799, they will give you a year supply of food?
STU: That's fantastic.
GLENN: 78 gallon size cans, enough food for one person for an entire year. Does not include M&Ms.
STU: Wait. 78 cans that are a gallon each?
GLENN: Yeah, this is stuff that I actually have in my house. I have
STU: No way. Are you serious? I would have never guessed that, Glenn. I would have never guessed that you had 78 gallons of food in your basement for survival or just dinner. Never would have guessed that.
PAT: Would you guess the 78 gallons of ice cream in the freezer?

GLENN: There's another, there's another they're not survivalists. They're just common sense. I found this, it's this new organization. What is the name of that organization? Were you here when I brought this stuff, I brought this food in and I was were you here? I brought this food in and you just pour water in it. Keeps for 20 years. This stuff is like, well, it's a gallon of pudding that can last for 20 years. Let me just say that, okay? So, you know, there's nothing wrong with it and I have it and it's good. But there's this new stuff. I'm trying to remember the name of this. And I open up these packages and you just pour water in it. And I'm going to have a problem keeping this stuff for a year. Because you pour hot water in it, you let it sit for 10 minutes, it's really good.
PAT: That the Daily Bread stuff?
GLENN: Yeah, but it's not called that. It does come from Daily Bread but it's not called that. It's really good stuff, really good. I should get the name because the world's coming to an end.
STU: Yeah. Because isn't it your job
STU: If you're one of these companies giving out, like, crazy food like that
GLENN: The animals are attacking. Quick! Get your food storage! The animals know! They're stockpiling. I saw them. I've been watching the squirrels.
STU: If you're one of these companies that's making food like this, it's part of your job to make it not taste that good. Because you're trying to keep people alive over a long period of time. If it tastes like chicken parmesan
GLENN: No. But see, no, that's the deal. This stuff does. It was really
STU: It's not bad, is it?
GLENN: No. You're going to eat it in week one. Here's the deal. If I got like a bucket of wheat sitting there, you know what I mean?
PAT: That's what we have, wheat.
GLENN: Really bad you got wheat? I'm just going to say, oh, to hell with it; bring it on. You know what I mean? I'm just going to... just kill me now, go ahead.
PAT: Shoot me in the head.
GLENN: You know what, honey? I know it's a hurricane. I'm going upstairs; I'm going to watch some TV. I don't want to live if I have to grind the wheat? What? I don't want to live. I don't want to live with a bucket of powdered pudding for 20 years. I can't do it. I can't do it. Do you? Do you want to live at that point?
STU: What flavor pudding is it? Is it pistachio? Then maybe I would. That's delicious pudding. Can you get cool whip?
GLENN: See, but my standards will go down. My standards will go down. Right now my standards are pretty high. I'm like, oh, I don't know; that's not the is that slow churned ice cream? You know what I mean? I get a year away from having any kind of ice cream; I'm like, "Is it cold? Was it at some point not moldy?" I'm just going to scrape the ants out of this. I'm just going to eat it like that. (Laughing).
PAT: Yeah, I think you get a little less picky, little less picky.
STU: As the fire is raining down from the sky.
GLENN: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
PAT: Yeah. You'll swallow the cracked wheat without grinding it.
GLENN: If somebody has, you know, like really good pudding, this trick it doesn't work now but it will work then. You can go, "Oh, my gosh! Is that Jesus?" And then they turn around and you just take their pudding.
STU: And you get tapioca, right. Fantastic.
