M. Brooks, 1/20/12: "The service is incredible; each time I have contacted Vic, I get an immediate response. He's always been kind, considerate and very professional and stands behind his word. The membership perks--phenomenal. Safecastle is really a ministry to those trying to prepare ... truly a first rate outfit, selling quality products at a reasonable price, owned and operated by a man who has a servant’s heart."
William J., 5/12/12: "... getting 25% off MH cases wasn't enough. Now you're getting me over 50% off this purchase! You've saved me a bunch of money. Thanks for your outstanding shop and such great prices. Ya'll have one of the greatest operations going … and believe me, I DO shop around."
Jeffrey P., 7/6/12: "Excellent customer service is so rare these days that when you experience it you are somewhat surprised. As a fellow business owner, I certainly appreciate and applaud the manner in which you run your business. Being able to resolve this matter at 9:48 on a Friday evening is simply incredible."
M.M., 2/15/13: "I just want you to know how awesome and fast your shipping and service is. I think you already know this, but it doesn't hurt to mention it :) There are a couple of other major online stores that I placed orders over 6 weeks ago that have yet to ship. You all must be very hard working folk. Thanks!"
Dave W, 5/16/13: Thank you so much for running a store that provides excellent customer service andsome I didn't even sells quality products at reasonable prices. The Steelhead Adventure medical kits came today and I am once again impressed. I have shopped at other preparedness websites and I have yet to come across one that is as responsive to customers and potential customers as yours is. I have sent emails a couple times to you asking for more information when trying to compare products. You have always answered my questions fully as well as answering think to ask. Keep up the good work."

For those of you familiar with the Kraft canned cheese, you will be real happy with this new cheese from Bega - also made in Australia. Although the Kraft cheese is called cheddar too, most customers say it reminds them more of a white American cheese than a cheddar.
Bega has actually been making cheese much longer than Kraft - since 1899. Bega has found a way to make a real cheese in a can with the same indefinite shelf life taste much better than the Kraft cheese. Produced in a can and sold in Australia for more than 50 years, Bega is a household name in many parts of the world. You'll first notice that it is yellow like a cheddar cheese should be. Second, you'll be pleased with the sharper cheddar flavor. And lastly, you'll find that the texture is better too - easier to cut, grate and slice than the Kraft, which tends to crumble when you try to cut it thin.
Not available in any store in this country - only available online!
One product that has always been missing from food storage programs is real CHEESE. It's true that, if you have a wine cellar, you can buy a waxed wheel of cheese and store it (i.e. age it) for years. That's a bit expensive and unwieldy, but if you are doing well enough to own a wine cellar, you probably can afford a 50 lb wheel of cheese - and you won't mind throwing about half of it away when it molds over after you cut it open.
For those of us with more modest means, we now have real Cheddar Cheese - in a can!!! Its technical name is "Processed Cheddar Cheese." That's the name they have to give it legally because it wasn't "naturally" produced by a Wisconsin cheese master. But from the ingredients and from the TASTE, you'll believe it is honest-to-Goodness real Wisconsin-made cheese! Make no mistake, this isn't liquid or semi-solid cheese - it is real cheddar cheese like you would expect to find in a deli case at your local grocery store.
It's just plain delicious.
Powdered and Freeze Dried cheese products have been available for years, and they are actually not too bad for some applications. They make an excellent sauce, dip or spread, but there's just something not right about spreading cheese on your sandwich like it was peanut butter. For some things, there is no substitute for the real thing...
Each can contains 200 grams (7.05 Ounces) of Cheese, and the cans are a little larger in diameter than a 6 oz. can of tuna and about 25% taller.
We've learned that the best way to serve it is if you open both ends of the can and then push out the 3 1/4" x 1 3/4" mini-wheel of cheese. You'll find that it doesn't sag, it doesn't quiver and it doesn't run - it is solid cheese!
This is real cheese that can be grated like any other cheese. It melts, it can be sliced into thin slices for sandwiches, pizzas, lasagna or meat loaf, and it behaves just like any other deli-bought cheese - it's great for grilled cheese sandwiches, fantastic omelets or just by the slice.
Bega Cheese complies completely with both FDA and USDA requirements and is even Hala certified. This cheese has a shelf life of two years according to the official specs, but will store for many years in reality. It's packaged this way in Australia and in the Middle East for folks who don't have refrigeration, like many in the outback or in third world countries. The manufacturer is confident it will last "indefinitely". Since it's in a sterile environment, air can't circulate so germs can't get to it - there's no reason that it can't store indefinitely. Just keep it as cool as you can, but protect it from freezing as with any other cheese. Once you open a can, it's best to refrigerate any leftovers, though it will most likely last a few more days in a zipper-locking baggie or tinfoil without refrigeration.

LG., 12/10/12: "Wow is all I can say...you definitely made a customer for life and I will be posting how well you have taken care of this issue on facebook ...I will also be spreading the word to all of my biker and survival friends ... I'm still at a loss for words other than thank you very much and I am sure karma will be giving back to you two-fold.
Gail S., 12/8/12: "Your Customer Service is amazing. I've never seen anything like it. Thank you for that and for your excellent products and deals."
DC, 10/1/12: "As a 15-year veteran of the customer service industry, I have always worked to provide my customers with World Class Service. As a result, I hold the yardstick VERY high when I find myself in the role of befuddled customer. In the 18 hours since I became his customer, Vic has gone light years beyond my every expectation. His quick response to my emails, willingness to explore all possible resolutions, and the way he took OWNERSHIP of my issues (no matter how small) have all astounded me. I honestly wish I had found Safecastle sooner, so I could have already told everyone who would listen where they can find truly World Class Service."
N.S., 6/16/12: "Wow. Thanks for the quick response. I must say, Jack Spirko's endorsement of your business caused me to choose you over any competitors, and he is spot on about your customer service. Thanks so much!"
Judie, 4/13/13: "Thank you for making shopping so easy ... and the sale prices so good!"
Adam, 5/3/13: "Thank you, Vic! You're running a great business."
Ed F, 5/6/13: "I wanted to thank you for the way you run your business and the service you provide. It is a pleasure to do business with you. You treat customers like friends and it is appreciated. My last purchase, the AEB Ox, happened because your personal recommendation in an email got me to look more carefully at it. Thanks."
