Really? Brexit Boxes!
Why not spend $380 at the local grocery store instead?
Usually the domain of survivalist groups and doomsday "preppers," food stockpiling has gained some mainstream appeal in the UK recently, amid fears that the country could leave the European Union without a deal, leading to shortages of basic goods. More than 600 people across Britain have bought a $380 "Brexit Box" since it was launched in December, according to manufacturer Emergency Food Storage. Billed as "Brexit stockpiling made easy," the box includes 60 freeze-dried main meals, a water filter and fire starter. "Brexit could potentially be an emergency -- if we believe all these predicted chaos reports," James Blake, who co-owns the company, told CNN. "We are in a situation that is completely unprecedented ... something like this [the box] puts people in control when they can't control what is going on around them."
We had a huge storm here last weekend, which dumped almost a foot of snow on the city, and people were packed at the grocery store buying like it was the end of the world. Really? how many times have we seen this and still people don't have the basics in their kitchen.
