What happens when you combine delectable delights with mother nature? You get foods named after disasters. While we’re not sure if the actual disasters inspired the creative chefs to name these delights, we’re sure that they are delicious.
Warning: Severe mouth watering has been reported where the following items have been spotted:
5. Mudslide pie
(We know this one’s a stretch)
Although these treats may not be as life threatening as their descriptions, they won’t come in handy during an actual disaster either. Luckily, we developed some other tasty alternatives to stock up on for your emergency kit when disaster does strike, outside the kitchen:
- Water—one gallon per person, per day (3day supply for evacuation, 2week supply for home)
- Food—nonperishable, easy to prepare items (3day supply for evacuation, 2week supply for home
- Dried fruit.
- Dry, crisp crackers.
- Granola Bars
- Dried Potatoes
- Peanut Butter
- Dried noodles like Ramen
Don’t know about you, but this is making us hungry. Can you think of more foods named after disasters or other food items to store in your emergency kit? Leave us a comment and let us know!
