Survival Husband gave it his best shotMy rating? No thumbs – not up not down – because I don’t have a fondness for sweets. That said, how about 3 stars out of 10? The Final Word I personally have not had the best of luck with pre-packaged meals. This probably goes back to my college years when I subsisted on hamburger helper and not much else. I was delighted, though, at the quality and most of all the taste of the beef stroganoff and plan to purchase some additional meal-type Mountain House products to sample. There is one important thing that I want to recommend if you are just getting started with freeze dried foods. If you can, purchase a small quantity first. As I noted, I tried out the 2 serving pouches before thinking about investing in a large #10 can. I know that in addition to the Mountain House pouches, Emergency Essentials offers their Provident Pantry products in smaller, use-now sizes called “MyChoice”. These are great for sampling, especially when it comes to staples such as milk, cheeses, butter, and sour cream. Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation! Gaye From the Bargain Bin: The big news this month is the Mountain House Sale at Emergency Essentials. Mountain House Sale: For the month of June, Emergency Essentials will be offering all Mountain House products at a discount of 20% to 25%. Shipping cost is $6, $9, or $12 depending on the size of your order and never more. (And you know how heavy food items can be.) Be sure to check out the Freeze-Dried Mountain House Pouches which offer a great way to sample the various food items before investing in the larger #10 tins.
