ideas for tasty emerg. preparedness food supply

Hi!
I just ordered several 2-person Red Cross 72-hour disaster backpacks for my brothers and their girlfriends for Christmas gifts and wanted to supplement with some long-lasting goodies to comfort them if disaster strikes. Wondering if you all have any suggestions on the best canned and dried items to throw in?

Here's what I have in mind so far:

*starbucks doubleshot espresso and cream (is there another canned or boxed option for coffee/espresso?)
*trader joe's canned smoked salmon or canned salmon pate
*rum cakes http://bahamasrumcakefactory.gourmetf...
*tea, chocolate, small bottles of alcohol
*deck of cards, frisbee or ball
*canned or boxed juices

Anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks!

fyi, link to the red cross store site:
