Afraid the end is near? Costco sells 3 emergency kits like no big deal

Whether it’s last week’s dire federal report on climate change or some version of a zombie apocalypse, it’s good to be prepared.

Costco has taken some of the guess work out of it by putting together three emergency kits. The membership-only warehouse, already known as the place to buy a lifetime supply of…well, anything, sells three kits ranging in price from $1,000 to $6,000. These kits, however, only contain food.

You’ll have to do some Googling for other doomsday provisions and DIY bunkers.

The price tag is more than a little hefty for families on a budget but could come in handy if a homegrown disaster were to befall a family, such as a job loss or unexpected medical bills.

The $999.99 kit contains 6,200 servings of food for a year, providing an adult more than 1,200 calories a day.

The $3,999.99 kit contains 31,500 servings of food for a year, providing up to four people 1,300 calories a day.

The $5,999.99 kit contains 36,000 servings of food for years, providing up to four people more than 2,000 calories a day.

The food offered in the kits are similar, except the $3,999.99 kit is the only one to contain cheese, “baking essentials,” a chocolate mix drink and pasta. I’m guessing pasta, during a doomsday scenario, will make whichever bunker has that kit the party pad.

The cost of shipping is included in the cost of the kits.
