  • I love you your the best

  • I don't wanna be greedy and ask for the numbers if you're lucky enough to get a Walmart or Sam's / Costco but God now I wanna know

  • Man why were you so harsh on evans. Poor dude just asked a question out of curiousity and you put him in a post appocalyptic world and separated him from his gf.

  • I learned 2 things from this video: 1. Always carry a can opener. 2. Mushrooms and potatoes for dinner are perfectly acceptable.

  • I could live off of reeses if I were locked in a supermarket

  • 0:35 is he saying he will die or that he will stop posting on this channel :0

  • Yummy caca mushrooms

  • food theory idea:if you are home alone for 6 weeks so how are you going to survive and the door is locked.If the food is out what would you do.Week 2 the power goes out so what would you do?Week 3 the water goes out how can you drink water.week 3 the food is almost out,and there are 4 can foods left.week 5 your almost finish.But you heard a phone call by the hospital saying that your family was murdered by a killer.So thatt extend 4000 years.Please answer this matpat.

  • This is going to be my before watching the video guess, I’ll be back to edit it after watching. I reckon the best way to survive would be just to have a banquet of all the foods that will go off soon. I’m going under the assumption that the electricity is out. So my plan would be just eat as much fruit and vegetables I can before they go rotten, then slowly work my way to the preserved foods.

  • God I love SLnumber

  • Spoiled food turns into compost. Plant the seeds. Eat again🤷🏾‍♂️

  • Now redo it with the rule that he has unlimited power of electricity

  • I work in the Dairy section of a grocery store. There was a time where the power went completely out, so you know what that means, fridge displays are a no go. We have to pull everything and bring it into the fridge because it was just colder in there. Why not put meats and what not in the freezer, might freeze a bit but it will be colder, and just be careful of opening it ?

  • Food theory idea: how long can you last at walmart

  • idea: how long could you survive with just your feces

  • This is the best video I’ve watched in some time

  • If I had a dime for every time I thought of this!

  • Here’s one for you. How true is the saying “you are what you eat?”

  • Love how much you put into this but I noticed something that was missing. What about the stock in the back of the grocery store? Was that also in the theory or did I miss that part?

  • I can't help but feel Therista ended up surviving with his best friend the whole time. That is until she accidentally went back to that grocery store and remembers... "Oh yeah, this place..." While already have like 3 children and maybe already a grandma.

  • And this is bullshit. All stores have toilets and power. Unless the [power is cut.

  • I want to grow my own mushrooms now.

  • He fails to mention the bugs and rats that will inevitably find their way in and eat away at a lot of this

  • they sell dirt in some grocery store. you could legit plant the fruits and vegetable so you always have some

  • How long could you survive in a gorrila cage


  • i get its drama but you think he can keep all the food and no raiders or alien/zombie/alienzombies will try and get in

  • can't you just use your human waste as soil, and plant food?

  • 5:16 ngl I left milk out yesterday went to work came back in the morning and had a bowl of cereal

  • Rar

  • Well let's hope that Evan knows how to perform maintenance on the building. Because after a while (and it may not be as long as you'd think), the building will start to get leaky ceilings, fall apart and collapse, greatly expediting the decomposition of many items.

  • You could use the POUNDS and POUNDS of salt to help preserve the meat and hey, cooking it wouldn’t be a challenge to do, because of all the charcoal and firewood they sell 🧐 Edit: use the bags of ice to keep the frozen foods cold👍

    • Oh gosh, most of what I said ended up in the video😮

  • Maybe making a smol garden and using old food as fertilizer

  • If a grocery store has a window, it wouldnt be that hard being stuck in the grocery Store for yesrs

  • I suspect I could survive for the rest of my life, easy.

  • when he can just crawl out the open window.

  • Use the spoiled food items to attract vermin and the like for additional fresh sustenance. Become a rat farmer.

  • can you make a fornite theorists

  • This video was an educational roller coaster from start to finish! 10 out of 10!

  • shitake mushrooms.

  • Me who doesn't know to open a water bottle or milk "Well I guess I'm screwed"

  • The answer is wrong becuse he must eat raw meat

  • *Food Theory Idea:* What is the fewest amount of food variation you could have, to satisfy your nutritional needs as a human being? Eg. Foods like spinach, broccoli, sweet potato, & oats tend to be foods that each satisfy a bunch of different needs individually... Add things like eggs, avocado, cherries, banana's, mushrooms, & pineapple, and that's more things crossed off... Anyway, just thought this would be a great idea for a video 😊🌈

  • YOU ARE MY FAV SLnumberR

  • What about stock pile food in storage

  • this what happens when you lose your mom

  • Wow, you are really smart! This video is really informative and funny, and I do believe that I learned a lot from it. Keep up the amazing work! 😊

  • 10 seconds, I would have found the fastest way to die within a grocery store

  • This would make a good movie

  • But that's surviving what about thriving? What about like lifting cans for weights and other forms of working out?

  • SLnumber recommended works in mysterious ways..

  • He survive that without electricity so with electricity he is immortal beside dying of old age

  • There are an average of 8 million calories in a grocery store divide that by 2000 witch is the amount we take in per day and divide that by 365 for the days in 1 year you will get 11.111111111 or 11.2 years bamb 14.56 minutes saved of my time

  • 7:36 He really used that. HE REALLY USED THAT!

  • Putt da food in da fridge bozo

  • What’s the most dangerous food in the world? Aka the food that causes the most deaths/injuries directly or indirectly.

  • Sweet home Alabama

  • How long can you survive by just eating cereal cinnamon toast crunch

  • Actually, he can take seeds from the fruit and plant them in his compost pile...

  • i want to say something but i dont have the courage

  • Too bad none of us could be strong enough to keep our hands off the chips for a single week

  • FT: what are hotdogs made of?

  • ok but he doesn't have infinte water HMM

  • Food Theory Idea: eating meat for your hole life no water only meat smoothies and meat cereal meat lasagna exedra.

  • All lost in the supermarket wouldn’t have been a better vid title no offense

  • Imagine sitting there for 12 hours straight thinking about a question.

  • I got way too invested while watching this

  • 12:20 becomes The Martian

  • Ayo food lion thumbnail?

  • Broke watching video my "theory"/analysis: is it a supermarket just of food or like Walmart? Also is there access to the back areas? Cause there's like freezers and equipment back there to help keep the food good right? Also my dad always told me that the expiration date is just the time ppl need to get the food off the shelf. It doesn't go back then and there. Bread, meats and fruits will be the hardest to keep fresh and edible. That's why I asked about the freezers and things in the back of the store. You could always make bread ofc using ingredients in the store [ this is where the store being strictly food or like Walmart needs to be answered] and use cooking utensils in the store to cook. Don't drink any bottle water use that for cooking only drink any tap water. Also if the store is like a Walmart then theres usually a gardening section with everything you would need to grow anything.there isn't much to do in a store as well so you may not get as hungry as someone who is working. So depending on what your doing in that store this who time can also effect how u may eat. I would say try to eat bread, meats, dairy, fruits, ect. First so they don't spoil and you'll be find. Anything in the freezers eat second. If the employees lounge is accessible then they have that microwave or something in the store. Try to leave can good somewhat last I suppose and candy can be a in between thing I suppose switch between different drinks. Leave any kind of powered drink last and like I said before try not to drink any none flavored bottled water. [This is all I can think of to go over I'll edit after I finish the video. Or once I'm don't with classes]

  • 7:35 and 8:25 made me laugh uncontrolably. too unexpected

  • Well ofcourse you could survive if its a shop because the workers will open it up in the morning.


  • For 2days

  • Food idea.what if u were stuck in a pillow aiel

  • U talk to much!

  • they have to nerf the mushroom exploit it is so broken

  • how much time would it take a cake with all the candy that you can find

  • Love this video 😂💯 This video is actually educational though... sure some of us will know lots of this stuff, but these informations can be useful (for general survival too)

  • Oof

  • Imagine getting stuck in like a Walmart of something

  • Potatoes

  • Evan looks like berleezy

  • What about drinks

  • WhAt if it’s a samsclub or a costco

  • Who says I'd want to survive? I barely want to do that in normal life


  • What would Happan if you were traped inside a coumputer

  • Everything after 10:50, is insane. I mean the whole idea is somewhat of a tangent but he clearly saved the stupid stuff as extra for anyone dumb enough to still be watching after ten minutes.

  • I was waiting for him to say farming :)) There is a flower section in most of the store. Depending on your store.. if not rip lmao.. also raw food can be dehydrated in a vacuum bag to extend its spoilages like the astronaut food.

  • how long dose food last like milk :D

  • Considering there are emergency exits in grocery stores, you'd be pretty stupid to spend more than a few minutes in a locked one. You literally cannot be "locked-in" to a commercial space because the locks are on the inside.

  • how long can you last in pizza hut

  • or... you know.. just throw a can of something at the door and get out...

  • A

  • Also, assuming the grocery store had canning and bagging supplies, you could be able to airtight seal some meats and non-dehydratable fruits and vegetables.

  • what if you were in a grocery store with only water, twinkies, and fresh meat restocked every day

  • if the window why doesn’t evan get out ?

  • There's just one teensy problem with this theory.... I've never been in a grocery store with a window. Evan dies of smoked lung.

    • He can probably cut a hole it the wall or somethinf

    • there would be openable windows in staff room

    • Or the chute that opens leading to the dumpster that you throw expired things into (used to do this for giant eagle) can be used as a window.

    • They do have the big roll up doors in the back for deliveries you could crack open

    • @Desiree MackenzieYou're right. I just meant windows that can open.

  • Well what about the food in the back
