      Is it possible for another theory like this but instead we are trapped on a fast food establishment?? 🤔

    2. Grace Duffy

      Are you not James fom the odd ones out??

    3. Měiwèi húntún

      If everything was restocked and stuff and the situation was just like it is today, you could really technically live there the rest of your life ... !

      Food theory: how long can you survive in locked Bunker

    5. stekaman

      very useful vid ever in this channel

    6. Colt Holloway

      If the world is post-apocalyptic, how can you unsure the rain water is safe to drink if it even does rain anymore? I was just curious.

    7. Billioski Lemme smash

      theorista lowkey looks like marzia

    8. Smiley Face

      You forget all the rats you coud eat too lol all grocery stores have them bone appetite

    9. Nicholas Dionne

      Bugs🤔 cuz roaches survive nuclear apocalypse

    10. David

      between all these pounds and feet, I am surprised calories are used in here :D

    11. Daniel McHugh

      The biggest issue would be rats and other animals coming into this store

    12. Golden Mini Gun

      Remember that sleep

    13. nervsouly

      There is a critical problem with the whole window tactic: You can`t just leave it open with all the zombies roaming the streets.

    14. Abram Carroll

      Carcinogens are formed when oil goes rancid. Although there isn't much more danger in eating it then say food cooked at very high temps(grilled), after decades of eating nothing but, he will be consuming lots of carcinogens and will probably develop cancer.

    15. Bryana Perry

      Maybe the real Theorista was the friends we made along the way.

    16. Liam Siviter

      First thing I would do is clear the freezer section of ice and anything else not useful. I would then open cardboard boxes on frozen multipacks to save space and get as much fresh food in there as I could.

    17. Robert Watson

      Life time supply of sprouting potatos growing by them selves from compost of rotten veg

    18. PixelGaming 2020

      Stores have tons of ice. You can probably just place some meat in there, which will give you some more protein for a while. This will probably last a few days before the ice melts. Also, when the ice starts to melt, you can just use it as extra water.

    19. Lakker94

      Food theory idea: for scientific reasons i swear, how long can a cannibal last, or a better question can a human survive off of only Human for meat? If so, how long?

    20. Evan Daniel

      That’s a good name

    21. Imani Windom

      Could you use the compost pile to grow new foods like produce?

    22. Ferdabank

      I wanna know where evan got all that information

    23. Francis Thrones

      Food theory idea: if a zombie apocalypse were to happen what food would be the best to live on.

    24. dua ahmad

      I have so much respect for how much work this takes.

    25. Nick Schaeffer

      10 yrs easy

    26. anefu


    27. ForkUp

      Are we going to account for the weather of the outside world? If he doesn’t have AC or a heater working, wouldn’t Evan be in trouble when it’s really cold or really hot?

    28. InfraRed Tiger

      If the window is open so he can cook the meat, why doesn’t he leave through the window

    29. Hudson Hill

      I’ve asked myself this question at night for years.... “video comes out “.... nice

    30. Joshua Greenaway

      Youd only be in there till they open in the morning LOL yall thinking too little

    31. The Opera Triple Axel

      Goot to know... Actually is useless... Thanks.

    32. Roy Ybarra

      Id die within months because asthma

    33. wpgspecb

      Is that hoovies garage in the thumb?

    34. Cantere Gonda

      Why doesn't Evan put the meat into the ice machine or where they store the bags of ice?

    35. AMV tunes

      What if the electricity never went out Because the whole store runs on solar energy how much does survive then

    36. ashton cunningham

      Use salt to cure the meat and if you .. could technically can too if you had way to get heat

    37. Some Asian Dude

      if you had a Walmart and Home Depot combo in a suburban area you could practically start a colony

    38. savannah M

      "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life." -John 3:16(bible) "the wages of sin is death"-Bible. Therefore God the judge has given man the death sentence due to man's sin, but because of God's mercy, he gave himself(god incarnate/jesus)to die on a cross for the sins of the world. That means he paid our fine and if we trust in him God can legally let us go guilt free in court/judgment day and have everlasting life with Him!

    39. The Early Kick With Austin

      The real questions are what isle would you spend the most time on and how much weight would you gain?

    40. Jay’s Fortune

      “Why you late”

    41. TheSiren Dragon

      Just imagine if you are illergic mushrooms 🥲

    42. Jessica

      You’re talking a small average food store. Ahem. Enter: Walmart garden center. 🤣

    43. Marty McFly

      I've watched someone eat 70+ year old peanut butter from WWI and WWII MREs and they weren't rancid. Peanutbutter has a longer shelf life than you think.

    44. Nelson Aquino

      How about the one on the back storage or something. I think you forgot to include those.

    45. David Trogdon

      Quick question, is this only including food on the shelves or food in the back room too?


      The real answer is, you don’t survive, you find something that can break glass

    47. Just Me

      Yo, farming’s kinda op I think the need to nerf that

    48. Robert Jank

      If Evan is able to make a fire, then he would be able to can the meat and vegetables in the beginning. He would just need a Dutch Oven and some glass jars. I’m pretty sure he can find all of those in a grocery store.

    49. Tom Beedall

      I'm not familiar with this channel. I thought he was gonna actually get locked in a store. I'm disappointed

    50. Andrew

      thank you.

    51. JC G

      Did Evan shower?

    52. Thickok 45

      The salt and vinegar could be used to preserve quit a bit of the perishables EDIT: posted before I watched the vid lol.

    53. Kyle Rudman

      did you count the food in the back of the house as well as the stuff on the shelves? I think it would be very easy to last a lifetime in a grocery store.

    54. Kallie Metro

      Couldn’t you use the grills sold in grocery stores and the coals 😂

    55. Kallie Metro

      Theory: how did the voice in your head develop?

    56. Kake Rake

      if power is out immediately stockpile salted meats and salt as much useful meat products as possible... or smoke them edit: ok i wrote this b4 i watched the episode

    57. Kake Rake

      if the apocalypse happens the first place i plan on raiding is a supermarket

    58. Walker Ginzel about 2 people?

    59. randal fowler

      Theorista shows up complains that there is nothing to eat

    60. CoffeyhouseART

      salted meats can last alot longer if you are willing to eat them they can last longer then 2 months ive eat 2 year old meat before

    61. Santiago Garza

      With all the Ice bags put together I think you could have a makeshift fridge for a week give or take, so another week more for meat 😩

    62. MrCalyus

      My guy Even is "locked" inside of a grocery store, yet has an open window for smoking meats and dehydrating fruits and vegetables. Something tells me he don't deserve Theorista.

    63. Mohsin Ali

      Evan must have used toilet during all of these years and u said there is no runny water so how can he manages to dispose that much poop.

    64. Liam Roberts

      I recon I could survive for years in a Hotel Chocolate store.

    65. Tim Stotelmeyer

      Collect the seeds from fruit and vegetables in the produce section. Save the tops from carrots and root them. Plant the dry beans and lentils. For extra dirt go downwards by pulling up the flooring and breaking through the concrete.

    66. Gregory Keaton

      06:16 “meatspin” lol

    67. pixel productions 64

      How long can you survive on one food?

    68. AriaDaioh

      now I feel like being a mushroom farmer isn't so bad

    69. Henry Lock

      after watching this video. surely with the amount of food he has composted, he would of had a viable soil to grow his own food. thus he should be able to last longer. with the rain water he harvests. the shop it self may have a seed aisle or if he had collected the seeds/pips/tubers from the various fruits/veg he could of then planted.

    70. Shawn Rhodes

      Try plants vs zombies

    71. Alt1tude

      This video is 1 percent theory and 99 percent food puns

    72. Bradeast

      When u have some old pies and he says u can eat it Let's go 🚽 🏃‍♂️

    73. Raphaël Atherill

      Good luck with that paper fire

    74. Rebecca Wood

      me scrolling down to see if vg responded to soy sauce then finds beast

    75. Davinia Robbins

      An easy way to tell if eggs are safe to eat is to drop an egg in a pan of water. If it sinks it is safe to eat, if it partial floats but is still touching the bottom it is probably okay but if it floats it is bad.

    76. Aerodynamic

      That's if the building will even last 63 years, many building's roofs looks like crap after about 15 years.

    77. XERIC OAR

      what if the store is out of stock xD

    78. Davinia Robbins

      And this doesn't even take into account vermin competing for food. There would be rats and mice not to mention that the place would start to stink after a while. Think disease would finish you off long before the food ran out.

    79. Horary Pigeon484

      I hate to break it to you matpat but you forgot ONE THING heheh You forgot the expire dates when were they put in the shelf there’s no way someone just restock the shelfs and when the. Pandemic started

    80. Lucas Dutra

      This video makes me realize we spent too much food in an animal we don't eat

    81. Hi There

      interesting video... I survived Hurricane Andrews and even Katerina. Food was not the problem, the drifters and the other hungry souls were the most problematic.

    82. O K

      What if Evan's allergic to mushrooms?

    83. Professor Hobo

      Just gotta say. That is a dope intro you have.

    84. Fallen Guardian

      What if he rationed

    85. Shyam Patel

      If there's an open window ... why can't Evan just climb out the window?

    86. Dim K

      I worked in a supermarket for years and this exact question was coming in my head like many times.

    87. Juli

      What if Evan is a vegetarian?

    88. Zachary A

      What if you take the seeds out of some fruit at the beginning. Gives you oxygen and more fruit. And use the compost as dirt. EDIT: Welp i typed this at about when evan died. So yeah EDIT: What if he goes outside and gets some dirt?

    89. NXØ

      So close to 69

    90. Garfield's Lasagna

      You forgot about the items in the employee only section

    91. Kozu- -Lucifer

      Finally a question I always had as kid finally answered

    92. Faith Rogers

      This is funny. LOL!

    93. Jack O'Leary


    94. Matt Rees

      Pah, food who needs it, toilet paper baby!!

    95. ML_Anonymous X

      No no no

    96. Gloria Ochoa

      You forgot to put into consideration the meat department thats on the spoiled list

    97. Brit Frazer

      Wait y'all waiting 50 years to get to that vodka?


      umm but wait what about the amount of water tht he needs to survive

    99. Stalwart Shinobi

      Quick answer, as long as the date on the last of the frozen food

    100. Sofia Quirino

      So... we are not counting that humans need WATER? Just count the amount of liters in a supermarket and count how many days a person can last on minimal fluids. Humans can live close to a month without food, but only about 3 days without water.

      1. DAVID YEUNG

        Around 6:42 he mentions how Evan could collect rain water out of the window, so water is not an issue
