Thanks for all the info
Interesting… I used to think that storing up emergency food was only for tinfoil hat wearing lunatics, but these days it looks like the only sensible thing to do! The government should work to constantly improve emergency food programs, but American citizens should take it upon themselves to store food and water for their families during an emergency. There's a good article about how to start your own food storage program very easily here:
Definitely something to take a look at if you are worried about a natural disaster or social upheaval interrupting the food supply.
Hope i win
Is there such a thing as freeze dried milk, instead of the stuff that tastes like cardboard?
Thanks for the video.These foods are really good but its quantity is too large in packets.may be you should packed it in cans.
You can buy the cans then divide up the food into smaller zip lock bags and put them in your fridge or freezer. They'll last a long time.
kenlowder, you make great points. The single serving packs so cost more than the bulk cans, and in a family setting, the bulk makes more sense (or if a smaller group of people are okay with eating the same meal a few times). Having a mix of freeze-dried, dehydrated, and MRE's is a great plan!
Vicky B, we also offer Mountain House products in pouches with between just 1-4 servings depending on the size of pouch you order. They're a great way to sample new flavors, or—like you said—have them on hand without needing to use the same flavor over and over if you've got a smaller family.
I used mountain house Waaaaaay back when I was young and hiking the grand canyon and such. They were always good, just add hot water, wait 10 min and eat. They do come in single serving sizes, but that cost more over bulk. I have some for my get out of dodge bags as well as mre's, which weigh more but I can eat as is. As always it's a trade off.
The video was nice. It's nice that Mountain House makes the foods right before freeze drying them.
Most of these foods are good but they are packed in too large a quantity for just the 2 of us. They reco9mmend using within a week of opening. I don't want to eat scrambled eggs and bacon everyday till I have used them all.
