Desserts in the Prepper's Pantry

Dessert plays a significant role in survival!
During a hardship, treats are often the first omitted luxury, but
they don't have to be in your survival group when you plan ahead
with survival desserts.

Imagine how you might make someone feel who has a birthday
during a disaster or catastrophic situation, if you can provide an
uplifting smile of encouragement with a sweet treat.

Your survival life can be sweeter when you boost morale with
sweets too, including hard candies, freeze dried puddings,
brownie mixes, ice cream sandwiches and more. These desserts
are tasty and "not" to die for!

Hardcandies are almost pure sugar and will last almost
indefinitely (though they may get a little sticky). A lollipop could
save your life! How? Grasp one in the palm of your hand with the
stick pointing up between your fingers as you make a fist. Your
lollipop fist is now ready to punch some poor sucker in the eyes
or stab the neck or groin region. Now that's a tasty but weird
survival tool that you can stuff in your purse or backpack.

Here's the

as well!

Survival Dessert #17: Chocolate Crisp Soldier Fuel

provoking and are provide minimal sustenence, food bars are
much more substantial They are substitutes for meals because
