Besides of the regular cans (tuna, chicken, chili, soup, low sodium spam, etc...), I also stock up some gourmet types like octopus in olive oil (one of my favorites.)

The ones I have are imported from Spain, and are not cheap -- however, it brings psychological pleasure during SHTF time (yes, I've experienced it before), has a good source of protein, contains nice dose of monounsaturated fatty acids (olive oil), tastes good (great, actually), and can add to salad/rice/beans/spaghetti/bread as a meal.

+1 for gourmet stockpiling!

Have a can of CMMG bacon in the earthquake kit, but haven't tried it yet.
Trader Joes also has Indian food that comes in metal foil pouches (practically MRE style) that can be heated or eaten cold. Trader Joe's also has canned trout, which makes a great alternative to canned chicken. The wife hates the Dinty Moore, but she does like canned smoked oysters.

Also in the earthquake kit/ bug-in kit is freeze dried coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and pop-tarts...

Nalley, Dinty, La Choy w/extra chestnuts, tamalies are an easy goto. Costco chicken and tuna are winners.

Found a can of beans in the back of the cabinet that was 8yrs old, no ballooning, so I tried it. No problems - but thats why I keep a good stock of fresh spices.

Yep, think I have 30 lbs of spam now but dread the day I ever have to start BBQing the stuff and eat it.

I'm moving toward the 30 year commercial stuff now, eggs, milk, butter, grains, freeze dried fruits. Just want to buy it and forget it but the meals have so much sodium I leery to buy much.

Spam and peanut butter are my go to protein for the most part. Don't forget your cocoa, gotta make CAKE with no ice cream.

I think their canned smoked herring is even better.

I keep quite a bit of canned food in regular rotation. Soups, tuna, chicken, beans, etc. I don't worry too much about expiration dates, but do monitor the condition of the cans.

I bought some multi-packs of SPAM some time ago. After being on the shelf for about 6 months, several of the cans swelled up within a few days of each other. I popped one open and it smelled normal, but I tossed it all. It must have been a bad lot.
