What is the ultimate survival food?

Rice? It has worked for a zillion years for a zillion people. Easy to store and carry and if packaged right wont go bad. You will need water to use it though.

Beans? Same thing.

Parched corn? Light but bulky, doesn't need water. High in carbs.

Pemmican? Indians and trappers used it quite well - might be a bit heavy, but certainly contains the calories and doesn't require water.

Chocolate? Don't laugh - it is compact, high in calories and energy and doesn't require water. Not sure about long term storage even if vacuum sealed though. Anyone know?
