    does it have to be a can like that'

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


    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

    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.

    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
