Artificial sweeteners are designed as a calorie free sweetening agent, they cannot give you an energy boost.

You could add some snells to it too.

Personally, I'd use the cross for exorcisms (just in case you realize that your life just became Paranormal Activity) and emergency conversion during the apocalypse.

In all seriousness, this is a pretty nice survival kit. I like that you added the Sweet N' Low. My personal favorite sweetener. :)

Knife sharpener good a few non essentials but I can find instances where they can b used except for the sugar which give little energy boost Maybe 4 cooking
WTF is the cross for? What is it?
While I'm sure its not the intended purpose the shiny metal cross would be great as a make shift fishing lure, sharpened at the edges for a spear or arrow tip, and if you have ever read where the red fern grows the perfect bait for catching raccoons for food if that book has any truth to it.
for religious reasons (i think)
its not required and it takes up space.
A reminder... That you aren't alone.
to think abt Jesus
its incase he has to fight a vampire duh! lol

And plus what wrong with having a cross in the kit, I think it's a really good idea! And if y'all don't think so than don't put one in your kit!

But sugar gives you energy and salt taste good on food! Maybe that's why he put some in his kit... Or maybe he's afraid a big slug is going to attack him and he won't have anything to melt with. Lol
I like the kit. Great items. Just one tip sugar and salt make you dehydrated. Okay. Other than that love the kit
Yours is the first kit that has a knife sharpener. I'm envious! I just uploaded my own kit. Lemme know what you think if you have the time!

The Cross is something that I have not seen before. Encouraging poems, quotes and passages are the most common but having Him there with you with a cross is a nice touch. As for the gum, it can be used as an adhesive to make a temporary patch in a (tent, ponco, bag etc.), to hold line while tying and also as fishing bait. Don't pay attention to the trolling comments you have gotten, you have done a fine job (though missing a few key items) and are well on your way.

No one ever puts lint in. It burns really good. Once it has a spark it slowly burns
a cotton ball burns well, and if you slather it in vasaline it will burn for up to 4 minutes which can help you get a fire started in a damp climate. A plastic spoon will burn well and hot. The spoons included in our MREs will burn close to 10 minutes. down side to the plastic spoons is the polution so these should only be used in "REAL" emergency situations. A ziplock plastic bag folds down pretty small and works well as a water container.
So what? pack vasaline?

"some cash (5 or 10 bucks)"?  If you are lost in the woods, why do you need money?  (I have a few ideas, but won't say so I'm not banned from this site. lol)
for starting fires?
I suppose if u are stuck in central park, 10 bucks for gyro and a phone call home
lol i get it
just think if you're out in the woods lost, and find a road, walking along the road you flag down a car and he gives you a ride into town, you then realize that your wallet is in your truck, miles away because you didn't think you would need it out in the woods, now what do you do?
Well, you might want the money to call a taxi if your "emergency" is a break down rather than being lost.  or to pay a stipend to a friendly motorist who is good enough to bring you a couple gallons.
