Chocolate is a delicious treat that we can enjoy whenever we have the need. However, in a survival situation, chocolate can serve as more than a sweet indulgence. Check out these survival uses for chocolate:
- Rust prevention – Tools made from steel and other ferric metals can be subjected to rust, and chocolate can be rubbed onto the metal surfaces, acting as both a polish and rust inhibitor.
- Polish – Chocolate is a mild abrasive and can be used to polish metal, an especially useful feature for creating signal mirrors or parabolic fire starters.
- Bait – Chocolate can be used to trap or attract certain animals with a sweet tooth such as skunks, opossums, and raccoons. While these may not be an ideal meal, they’ll do the trick in a pinch.
- Fire Starter – That’s right! You can start a fire with a chocolate bar, a soda can and a nice sunny day.
While the video shows an inventive way to use a soda can, it is by far from the only way to use one in a survival situation. To see a few more, check out our article on soda can survival.
