[emergency calories]

Whether you’re heading out for one day or 10, it’s wise to pack an extra day’s food, ideally something you can eat without cooking. Pair the Cinnamon Bun with the Barbecued Beef Sandwich flavors to have more than 700 calories on standby—and that you can keep in your pack for three years. “These shelf-stable sandwiches are surprisingly moist and tasty,” says one tester. MRE-style food not your thing? See page 125 for our favorite new bars and dehydrated meals. $4 (each); 3.7 oz.; bridgford.com
