Honeyville - Save 30%-70% Now - Monday


Honeyville is putting 100+ items on sale for 30%-70% off.

While I don’t recommend getting regular ‘ol grains at Honeyville (they tend to be overpriced), they are a great place to get  specialty grains.

I do not recommend getting freeze dried products here.  Dehydrated products are okay though.

Here are a few highlights:

  • 5 lbs of organic coconut flour: $7.89 (retails at $19.99)
  • 5 lbs of yellow corn bran: $6.50 (retails at $14.99)
  • 6 lbs of blanched almond flour: $34.59 (retails at $43.59)
  • #10 can of 6 grain hot cereal – $6.59 (retails at $9.49)
  • #10 can Dehydrated banana chips: $4.99 (retails at $9.99)
  • 5 lb Fine Rice bran: $6 (retails at $14.99)
  • 4.5 lb flax seeds: $7.99 (retails at $17.99)
  • 4 lbs Granular erythritol: $16.49 (retails at $32.99)
  • #10 can instant chocolate pudding: $7.15 (retails at $14.29)
  • #10 can vanilla pudding: $6.60 (retails at $13.19)
  • 100 ct 100cc oxygen absorbers: $5 (retails at $12.99)
  • 50 ct 300cc oxygen absorbers: $6 (retails at $12.99)
  • 1.7 lbs sunflower seeds: $4.99 (retails at $9.99)
  • Walnut flour: $8 (retails at $19.99)
  • Wheat Protein Isolate: $10 (retails at $19.99)


What NOT to get:

  • Basic baking supplies (all purpose flour, rolled oats, brown sugar, etc).  You can get these for less at Costco or the LDS Home Storage center.
  • Freeze dried products.  I just have not been impressed with the quality, though to be fair, I’ve only tried 10 or so products.
  • Dry beans.  They are less at the LDS Home Storage Center
  • Just add water meals.  Some of this is a personal preference, but they are crazy high in additives and just don’t taste good.  If you must get just add water meals, get them at Thrive (expensive and shorter shelf life, but few additives) or Emergency Essentials (great price, still lots of additives, but better tasting)

Emergency Essentials - Thurs - Fri AND Monday


I have not yet seen all the items that will be on sale, but Emergency Essentials did provide me with a “sneak peek” which you can find as an image down below.

Note that in years past, their “doorbuster” were while supplies lasted and you could only get one.  So, double check that.  I do love that they are doing small $3-$7 pouches as their doorbusters – what a great way to sample some things!

I am most excited about:

  • The Dura Rocket Stove
  • The various Granola flavors
  • The Flip Rechargers

Thrive vs Emergency Essentials?

Since I love Thrive so much, a lot of people ask me if I recommend the freeze dried food from Emergency Essentials.  My answer is yes and no.

No because I think Thrive is far, far higher quality.  It just is – they freeze dry their own food and it smells fresh and is brighter in color.  Also, some (not all, but more than Thrive) of Emergency Essentials foods have preservatives in them.

But if Thrive wasn’t around, then Emergency Essentials would be next on my list.  I don’t think you will ever get bad product from them.  They have been in the industry forever and are a great company.

So, if they have something on sale that Thrive doesn’t and it is a product you really want, I’d consider getting it!  Here are some products (just from the sneak peek) that will be less at Emergency Essentials on Black Friday:

  • Freeze Dried Pineapple – $14.99 Doorbuster
  • Chicken Dices (though these are pineapple flavor) – $24.99
  • Green Peas – $9.99

There may be others once the sale officially starts!

The only thing I would NOT recommend is their milk.  If you don’t want to invest in Thrive’s (which really is the best tasting), then go with the LDS Home Storage Center.  It is much, much less.


Thursday, November 23rd at 6:00 pm MST – Friday, November 24th at 11:59 pm MST

And, Monday 12:00 am to 12:59 pm for Cyber Monday (thought the sales will be different)
