Whether you were locked in or it was your home base in a zombie apocalypse, how long would you be able to SURVIVE with that as your only source of sustenance? Today, I'm going to settle in and find out!

If it's walmart probably like 25 years thats about how long the emergency food containers last for. And with the water purification tabs you could have all the water that's there if they happened to go bad or anything.....also hypothetically you could make jerky or do many things to preserve food

Hold up i think i would survive a lot longer nowing for a fact that it is so much better to have a plant diet then a meat diet you would also get all your vitamins from the store in tablets and due to plants being so much better for self healing it would be alot less risky if i had a cut or a bruise also if u had alot of spice to your diet you wouldent need to eat so much and you wouldn't have that risk of eating anything raw by accident cause accidents happen also if you where in a zombie or alien appocolyps dont you think they could follow the smoke and climb through the window but if i did need to cook something like lentils i could figure out how to work the air vents and if not maby only open the window or door a little not enought for something to climb through but enough to let a little smoke out and due to all the windows and doors being open a little it would act like a massive window was open

This escenario was only based in United statian's supermarket/grocery store. I'll take a wild guess and estimate that under normal circumstances we can manage to live without problems around 5 years in *any* supermarket in the world (a wild guess, based on the info on this video) which gives you a lot of time to think a better, optimal solution to the problem at hand: surviving.

Apparently, someone doesn’t know how to grow potatoes. You would have an over abundance of potatoes if you know how to grow them. Between potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, etc, you could add years. Also, that compost pile could be strategically modified to your needs ( multiple compost piles would be best). That would allow you to grow more successfully, and since we are in fairytale land, let’s talk fruit trees. They would take a while, but hey , you have the time right? And let’s not forget the endless meat source of rats and other animals attracted to your compost piles and bugs it brings in... another protein source.

before watching video probably 5-10 years depending on stocks canned food life varies and their lifespan rarely goes over 5 years but it's pretty safe to use after that. so let's say max 10 years you can lived of everything on that super market. meat could be eaten on the first 2 months until it completely spoils well if we have electricity to power fridges we can get that for less than a year canned food can get you upto 10 years, if you rationed everything nicely. put junk food on the first two years to stretch out the canned food and if they have water stocked that can be used for instant noodles just recycle the noodle water you can cook rice too just create a mechanism to harvest those water or gather up rain. if they have LPG tanks, firewood or charcoal ofcourse

ok, he can expand the land where he's growing the produce , by using tools from the tools section digging out the floor coverage. He can also make a drainage and use the sunlight from the open window to grow not only mushrooms and potatoes. he can create electricity using a bike converting abike mechanical electrogenerator. using energizer small finger batteries and huge car batteries can also help generate eltrcity for some time. he can also use fuel electric generators for some. besides that electricity can also be produced from the compost, existing brickwoods, fire coal etc. he can also expand the food shelf storage by using uv lamps and make electricty out of his bike for at least some refrigerators. curing pork legs the same way hamon in spain is cured he can extend curred pork legs by up to 5 years. to connect with the rest of the humans he can use radiostations inside the supertmarket. and it's only a few thing that can be added....
