What if rapture happens and you don’t make it? You don’t want to be caught unprepared.

If the Bible and millions of other spiritual books are correct, then the world is bound to end someday, that is if we don’t kill ourselves off before then. Think about it. What are your chances of going to heaven?

If the rapture or the apocalypse happens by any chance , starving should be the least of your problems. MREs (meals ready to eat), dehydrated food and every variety of survival food should be in your store, and interestingly, they don’t cost an arm or leg and are shelf-stable.

In this article, we provided a list of survival foods or long-lasting goods that you should start stocking up. These foods can last for years, decades, or even longer, and if you don’t have them, you will be OYO after the apocalypse happens and you’re stuck in your house.

Top Survival Foods

We know you’ve probably sneaked into your kitchen’s drawer to get a lick before. Honey is vital for survival. It never changes or turns rancid, but it may crystallize with time. Many people make the mistake of tossing it out, but that is a BIG mistake. To dissolve the honey crystals, all you have to do is warm and stir it for a couple of minutes.

Honey is a great sugar source for a fast energy boost, makes your tea taste better, and many other exciting benefits.


Salt is a mineral that never spoils and will prove to be an invaluable resource. Ordinary table salt and sea salt have a lasting shelf life, except seasoning salt which only lasts about a year.

After the initial crisis of the apocalypse subsides, adding salt to your foods is not just going to improve the flavor of the tasteless survival food. It also adds sodium, an important electrolyte into your diet. Without the electrolytes, your body won’t function optimally. Don’t forget to stock up.


If the rapture does happen and you don’t make it, you are going to be needing a lot of liquor. It is a good way to drown out your sorrow, and if you ever need to burn something (zombies will probably be all over the place), liquor will come in handy.

You can also use it as an important bartering chip. Many people will be searching for ways to escape and calm down after the world ends, and if you can provide that, you have the leverage.


Oh, you thought if the world ends, you would finally be free of the rice you’ve eaten every day since you were born? You lie. It will follow you into the end of the world. (*insert evil laugh*)

Rice is energizing and highly versatile. It is cheap and affordable, and as long as you don’t allow pest infestation, this survival food will last a long time. Ensure you store white rice only because brown rice contains oil in the grains that may cause it to go rancid after a few months.


You can improve the taste of marinades and salad dressings with vinegar, but its uses are far more practical than that. You can cook and clean with it, and its usefulness as an antimicrobial will help you if you ever get injured while scampering for safety during the apocalypse.

Sugar print
All forms of sugar – white, brown, and powdered – all have an infinite shelf life. It is certainly one of the best survival food items to have if the world ends. If it hardens, you only have to knead and break it up.

Ensure you store it away from pests (oh, you are going to see a lot of them) and properly too. You can use sugar as a food source or to barter or trade in for other food items in a post-apocalyptic economy. Ensure you have enough of it.

In conclusion
The durability of your supply largely depends on storing them at “optimum conditions,” but let’s be realistic, if a crisis does happen, optimum condition is an unrealistic dream.

The common household items we listed above have a long shelf life and will be an excellent addition for your survival food storage. If you want to outlive the apocalypse, avoid all the commercial stuff and stick with long-term foods.

Think we are missing an item that should be on the survival foods supply list? Share your opinions with us in the comment section. And don’t forget to share this with your friends who may be left behind. You know them.
