Hurricane season is soon to be upon us, a time for preparation and stocking up on essential supplies. While flashlights, batteries, and bottled water are crucial, don’t forget about the importance of having a reliable and nutritious food source on hand. Here at Hancock Peanut Company, we believe that our humble peanuts can be a surprising hero in your hurricane preparedness kit.

Why Peanuts are Your Perfect Storm Shelter Stash:

Power of Protein: Peanuts are a nutritional powerhouse, packed with protein – a vital nutrient for maintaining energy levels during a power outage or disruption. Just one ounce of peanuts boasts around 8 grams of protein, keeping you feeling full and satisfied.

Shelf-Life Superstar: Unlike many fresh fruits and vegetables, peanuts have an incredibly long shelf life. Store them in a cool, dry place for over a year from production date, which is 15 months in our vacuum sealed cans. This means you can buy them well in advance of hurricane season and have peace of mind knowing they’ll stay fresh and edible. And, you can simply rotate them in and out of your kit to keep them fresh.

Portable Perfection: Peanuts are lightweight and require no refrigeration. Toss a handful in a sealed container or bag, and you have a convenient and portable snack that can be easily stored in your hurricane preparedness kit or emergency backpack.

Nutrient-Rich Goodness: Peanuts aren’t just a source of protein; they’re also packed with essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin E, vitamin B6, niacin, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus. These micronutrients play a vital role in various bodily functions, from maintaining healthy skin and hair to supporting energy production and bone health.

Hydration Helpers: While staying hydrated is crucial during a storm, salty snacks like peanuts can actually help. They can temporarily stimulate thirst, reminding you to drink essential fluids, especially when fresh water may be limited.

Beyond Basic Snacking: Culinary Versatility in Your Shelter: Peanuts aren’t just for mindless munching. Their protein content and unique flavor profile make them surprisingly versatile additions to meals you can prepare even without power:

Peanut Butter Power: If you have some bread on hand, whip up a simple peanut butter sandwich for a satisfying and protein-rich meal.
Trail Mix Magic: Combine peanuts with other shelf-stable ingredients like dried fruit, granola, or even pretzels for a homemade trail mix that’s both delicious and nutritious.
Energy Bar Booster: For a more substantial snack, try creating homemade energy bars using rolled oats, peanut butter, honey, and a touch of dried fruit. These bars are packed with protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates for sustained energy.
