Costco Finds Sweet Spot Selling to Survivalists

Fairly remarkable front-page special up at Costco site: One-year of dehydrated and freeze-dried food. For $799.99 you can have enough grains, fruits, veggies, meats, etc., to get you through … whatever you think is coming up.

How popular is the survivalist special? Orders placed now won’t show up until after 11/16/09. Better hope that the apocalypse doesn’t come before then.

[Update] And relatedly, things that bury best in holes from a size/value/utility perspective. Darn handy.
