I'm looking to find some easy kit foods to keep in my car. The snag? I'm in Illinois. It's about to dip below zero again. Meanwhile, this is my work car, lot of days in hot parking lots. What are some temp-stable or relatively stable foods I can keep around with occasional restocking?

Mainstays Ration bars have a temperate range of -40F to 300F with a five year shelf life. You can buy them in larger 3600 calorie bricks or smaller portions. They taste like a really dense lemon bar, not too shabby actually.

I did a test a few years ago to see how long I could stand them, the ones I ate were coming up on their 4 year anniversary. Went about 3 days eating nothing but. I had pretty bad cotton mouth and was sick to death of the flavor, but it was doable.

I used these in my car kit in Phx where the interior temps of the car got well over 100 degrees.

Both of the posts above have pretty much nailed it.
For small, compact, long shelf life rations that can handle extreme high and low temps it's hard to beat lifeboat rations.
They're relatively inexpensive as well.

Clif bars and dried fruit. I rotate them with the equinoxes.
