Here’s Exactly What’s In Costco’s New $6000 Doomsday Prep Kit

Costco is the latest retailer to get in on the doomsday prep business, selling a $5,999.99 Nutristore 1-Year Premium Food Kit for all those hungry for a sense of security in the event of a catastrophe.  The pallet contains 600 cans of food that can feed four people a well-rounded 2,000-calorie-per day diet for 12 months, including carbs like rotini pasta, proteins like black beans, beef and chicken, as well as fruits including apples and bananas, and freeze-dried veggies like broccoli and green beans.  There are also slightly less expensive alternatives, including a $4,699.99 collection of 220 cans of food (for a 1,986 calorie-per-day diet); or a $3,999.99 collection of 378 cans (also good for four people for a year).  For context, “doomsday preppers” — a subculture of people who prepare for the apocalypse — stock up on food, survival gear, and even the construction of secure facilities to endure a potential cataclysmic disaster like a nuclear attack.  Sales of such merchandise typically spike in concurrence with scary world events, Doomsday prep retailers say.
