The unopened pouches have a shelf life of about 20 years, Costco said, earning it a spot in the retailer's "emergency provisions" section, which also famously contains a $1,000 package of "emergency food" designed to feed a small family for an entire year.

The mac 'n' cheese bucket is a comparative value at $89.99, coming out to about 50 cents per serving.
