There have been countless praises for folks using Spam as a meat source for their Emergency Food Storage. Some people have said it was terrible but others have commented how good it was. I have eaten Spam, but I have also eaten a product called Treet. While
some people may not like Treet or
Spam, I like them both, but I prefer Treet simply because of the lower cost of the
product. A few people even said they can distinctly tell the difference between the two. I grew up eating an occasional fried Treet or
Spam sandwich, and I thought after frying either of them, they were equally as good. I also feel like in a taste test with back to back
samples of each, people really wouldn't be able to tell which was which.
difference in sodium is only 30 mg. I doubt the palates of most of the
population can differentiate between sodium content at that level when both products are relatively
think there is no need for taking strong sides in the Treet vs. Spam comparison, although people have done so. People should be grateful that there
is a low cost meat product out there that serves them well as a Prepper storage
food. The cost is really where the big difference
comes into play. Spam costs 40% more
than Treet, i.e., $2.48 vs. $1.50, and both are relatively the same
as far as nutrition goes, and both are rather salty. However, I see
lots of pictures of people's pantries on YT showing case after case of Ramen Noodles in their food
storages. Now that's a salty product!
all boils down to personal preference and an extra $0.98 per can to pay for the
Spam, when they have basically the same value when the an emergency strikes:

Keep building your preps, even if it's only one or two cans at a time, and put them in a separate place if you don't have one already. Don't forget matches and cigarette lighters for lighting your candles.
In summary, it would be good to have either meat product in your emergency food storage. Another factor that makes them so popular is their distant best by dates which is a particularly important piece of information when it comes to emergency food storage. I bought these two cans last week, and the best by dates are as follows:
Take your pick of either one, but in my opinion, I suggest having several cans of one or the other in your emergency food storage. I would simply buy whichever one was less expensive, and for me, that's Treet. With the cost savings, I can buy a can of Beach Cliff Fish Steaks for my preps.
Thanks for stopping by and visiting.
