Costco's dystopian 'emergency meal kits' have people fearing a disaster is coming

Is the end almost upon us?

Well, according to Costco's latest emergency meal kits, it might be closer than we think.

A popular TikTok user who goes by the handle @CharminglyFrugal, also known as Krystal Christensen, recently took to the video-sharing platform to show their 98,000 followers what they'd found in the wholesale store - and the discovery is actually pretty sus.
"I stopped at Costco today and Ready Wise emergency food is $63.99 and it comes with 132 servings," Christensen said at the start of the video, showing off a box of "emergency" supplies that consist of over 100 servings of pasta.
The TikToker is known for her conspiracy theories surrounding the end of times and often takes to social media to warn others to be prepared so that when it does eventually come, they're ready.

"They also have Mountain House emergency meal kits," she continued, panning over to yet another selection of emergency food kits which were $79.99 and consisted of eggs, chicken, dumplings, lasagne, and granola - a very random selection, but we're kind of here for it.

She then showed off Mountain House freeze-dried ice cream sandwiches that sell in six-packs for $9.97.

"It is quite expensive but I’m gonna pick one up because if s*** hits the fan, I’d rather be more comfortable on a day that's a bummer," she said.

Christensen also advised her followers to opt for one brand over the other just due to their price range before concluding the video.

Have a look at the clip below:

TikTok users were quick to express their thoughts in the comments, with many convinced that the end of the world was near.

"Interesting. Emergency food supply... Like they know what is next to come," wrote one user while another added: "If they re sell emergency food packs. What do they know that we don’t[?]."

A third commented: "They are telling you there is a problem coming."

Others were also questioning what on earth was going on.

Let's do some debunking here though because these are not new products that have just been put onto the shelves in Costco.

Back in 2018, Fox News reported that Costco released their "$6,000 doomsday meal kit" which had 36,000 servings of food that can allegedly feed a family of four for a year.

"Enjoy the comfort in knowing you have the essential foods your family will need to survive an emergency or natural disaster!" the chain wrote about the package.

With a shelf life of up to 25 years for the freeze-dried items, the Nutristore 1-Year Premium Food Kit averages out to $0.17 per portion, as per Costcos calculations.

At the time, others were also commenting about how Costco has always been ahead of the game when it comes to preparations, with one X user writing: "Costco rolling out the doomsday kits is really scary because 1. costco has always been an apocalypse prep store but now they no longer feel the need to hide it and 2. they clearly know something we don't."

At this rate, I'm not taking any chances so I'm going to start stocking up on tinned goods.
