I'm trying to get ideas for hurricane foods to buy tomorrow, but I think this could be an interesting challenge anyway.

My idea is beanie weanies.

(Also, I know "tastes good" is relative when we're talking about canned goods, but y'all know what I mean...)

Green beans
Cranberry sauce
Applesauce
Mandarin oranges
Fruit cocktail
Corn
Soups
Tuna
Sardines
Oysters
Foil packaged foods: tunas, salmon, Indian entrees, Mac n cheese, etc.

Just walk down the grocery store canned food aisles and your favorites will jump out at you.

Thanks for the thread. I think I will do this just as an exercise.

Good luck and I hope you wont need to do this shopping, but its always good to be prepared.

Be safe!

Anything that you might find used as a salad bar topping...kidney beans, garbanzos, black beans.

Any and all potted meats, though "tastes good" is subjective. I could ride out some power outages with cans of Underwood deviled ham on crackers if I had to.

I would also go with the same types of shelf-stable stuff I keep in a go bag in my car, for when I'm out and about with children and anybody (including me) gets hangry. Nuts, trail mix/snack mix, wasabi peas, banana chips, yogurt covered raisins, etc.

Another vote for tuna.

My family loves the Croatian potted pts, and the chicken spread by the Underwood Devil.

Corn niblets are ok right out of the can if you're in the mood.

Costco sells plastic sleeve-type pouches of Indian curries areound here, mostly vegetarian, that are not bad at room temp.

Fruits like cling peaches, morello cherries, mandarin orange segments, pineapple rings, etc. are nice for canned foods too.

This is a great rule of thumb!

Good call. We used to get Croatian and Polish ones often at an ethnic market near our house when we were stationed at Naval Station Great Lakes. They are nice to have on hand.

We keep a lot of these on hand...the Tasty Bites brand...Madras lentils, etc. I guess they'd be okay not warmed. They also make (as does Uncle Ben) already-cooked, shelf-stable rice in similar pouches. Those would be alright to eat not warmed up, if you had to.

Peanut butter and jelly, laughing cow cheese, bagels, raisin bread, pop tarts, canned ravioli or ravioli in microwave containers if you hate that canned taste.
