The thread title reminds me of a scene from the film, "Chisum."

Oh and along with various preps, coffee and to some extent tea will have some value once people run out. Much like tobacco and alcohol, people will want coffee. How much do most people really have?

Back on the salt/spice angle, anyone that pickles veggies or salt cures meat knows how salt they need. Also what amount of various spices they need. It is not a small amount by any means.

So if you have a goodly stockpile of those items, you're planning ahead. If all you have is what most people have in a kitchen cabinet, you will want more. Having a couple hundred lbs of salt is just prudent (maybe more). I include sugar in that category. People crave sweet things and if you are baking, you can use a lot. Granted you can use alternative things for sugar. Up my way, maple trees are used for a few rather sugary alternative. If you are elsewhere, maybe molasses may be available.

But dismissing the usefulness of prepping those items is foolish. but we have strayed from the bartering ammo issue.

Chocolate. Is life really worth living without chocolate?

Whoever can grow the beans and make the sweet stuff will become king of the world
