The world has become a scary place. Unstable global politics, weird weather and an increasingly unpredictable future means that more people are preparing for worst-case scenarios than ever before.

From keeping a few bottled waters handy to going full-on nuclear bunker, it’s always better to be ready in case the worst happens.

If you don’t feel like assembling your own grab bag in the event of a zombie attack, a fast-spreading killer virus or an alien invasion, Costco has your back. The bargain bulk-buy superstore is selling a one-year supply of food that has a shelf life of up to 30 years.

Canned food keeps well

The Nutristore One-year Premium Food Kit contains 36,000 servings of food and costs £4,330 ($5,999), which works out at £0.12 ($0.17) per portion.

Each meal has 2,000 calories and includes everything you need to stay healthy, from vegetables to protein and dairy.

Costco said: ‘Enjoy the comfort in knowing you have the essential foods your family will need to survive an emergency or natural disaster!’

The kit is ‘packaged discreetly for privacy in shipping’, in case you’re worried that your neighbours will suspect you know something they don’t.

If you’re on a budget, the store also sell a non-premium year’s supply of food for £2,736 ($3,799.99) and 14,040 packets of foods in metallic pouches stored in airtight plastic buckets for £2,592 ($3,599.99). So you never need to worry about going hungry again.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.

Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination.
