AlpineAire vs Mountain House, I really don't have a preference.
Just for sake of posting a complete freeze dried food review, let me say that the only freeze dried food I tried and didn't like was the Mountain House "scrambled eggs with bacon". Hooo, man, those were awful. All freeze dried food has sort of the same texture, and it's not an unpleasant one, and it works fine for pasta, fruit, beef and so forth but I could not get behind the eggs. This AlpineAire pack did not have anything with eggs, which is probably just as well, but I felt I should warn you anyway. Nothing I had from this pack was terrible. Ones I have tried:
* Beef Rotini: very good.
* Mountain Chili: not bad. Not my favorite blend of spices but not bad for manufactured chili.
* Blueberry Honey Granola with Milk: surprisingly good. Freeze dried milk actually came out pretty well. Who knew?
* Roast Beef Hash: ehhh, 6 of 10. Although to be fair, I have never liked roast beef hash anyway.
* Cheese and Cracker Lunch: actually just some big, dense crackers and a couple packets of squeeze cheese, not unlike Easy Cheese. Simple but good and requires no prep. Just open and eat.
* Western Style Tamele Pie: very good.
* Apple Almond Crisp: didn't like it. Bland. Reminded me of Quaker Apple & Cinnamon instant oatmeal except with a very weak apple flavor. It was edible but I wouldn't order a box of it.
* Bananas Foster: excellent.Read more ›
I ordered directly from the companies so that the meals would be fresh and have a good shelf life. Mountain House sent their product very quickly, meals that were very fresh (leaving a long shelf life) and well packed. We taste tested many of the meals and they were either very good or pretty good. The experience with Backpacker's Pantry
was almost identical and had some interesting dishes to add variety.
AlpineAire, Richmoor etc. was just the opposite. The products were packed poorly. Several pouches leaked their contents which made an unbelievable mess as all the pouches were covered with food product that stuck to the other pouches as if they had been covered with glue. To add insult to injury, all the products had varying expiration dates that left very little shelf life. Shipping took longer than any product I've ever ordered (weeks and weeks). When I wrote the company (TyRy Inc.)
all I got was a snotty condescending form type reply.
In terms of taste, some of the products were ok but many were no better than eating dry oatmeal or animal feed. The taste was either bland or out right strange. The texture or most of them was strange and/or rubbery. Go to a company that cares not this one.
I tried all of the products in the seven day kit and I will rate each as one of three categories: 1) Very good, I enjoyed it and would eagerly eat it again. 2) OK, mediocre at best and I would eat it again if I was hungry and it was available 3) Awful - it tasted bad, the texture was like cardboard, it did not reconstitite well or something else to make it an disapointing experience.
I always make sure the water is boiling hot, give it a few extra minutes to rehydrate and usually add an extra 1/2 to 1 ounce of water to improve rehydration.Read more ›
