Flavor Name: Chicken Stew Verified Purchase
OK, first off, I really am a Chef. I have cooked in 4-star restaurants and greasy spoon dives in my 20+ year career. That having been said, these meals are actually far better than I expected them to be for something that will supposedly last 25 years. Sounds crazy I know, but it's true. However, if you're not sure if you will like them or not, I would suggest buying the single serving size pouches (also available on Amazon) and trying them out. That's what I did, and was not disappointed. Flavors are pretty good overall, I particularly like the beef stroganoff. It actually has a nice sour-creamy flavor, and the noodles and beef chunks are very flavorful. I'm not saying it's "just like Mom used to make", but after working a long shift, I'm more than happy to break one of these out and eat it.
Some textures may not be appealing to some people. I kind of had a problem with the eggs, but I got over it. They just seemed...wrong(?), somehow. Also, it is very important to use HOT water and let the meals sit for the required amount of time, or some bits may not fully rehydrate and still have a "spongy" texture. I guarantee, if you use cold or lukewarm water, you will be cursing me forever for recommending this stuff to you. Please don't do that! ZombieChef wants to help you!
I can highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for food for backpacking, camping, or to have in your home, car, or Bug-Out Bag in case of floods, hurricanes or the Zombie Apocalypse. My personal favorites are: Beef Stew, Beef Stroganoff, and Chicken and Noodles. Oh, and one more thing, try to save room for dessert!

Flavor Name: Spaghetti Verified Purchase
Bottom line up front: This type of food is a great choice for an emergency food supply, especially for sheltering in place or evacuating by vehicle. The #10 cans have a 25-year shelf life, so you can buy them and not worry about rotating your stock for a couple of decades. The biggest downside is that once opened, they need to be used up right away.

SHELF LIFE - The #10 cans have a 25-year shelf life (unopened). The biggest downside to #10 cans versus individual pouches is that the 25-year shelf life turns into a 1-week shelf life once they've been opened. Since each can has enough for 10 servings, you'll be eating the same thing for several meals unless you're cooking for a group.

TASTE - In my experience, Mountain House food is really tasty. Let me caveat this review by saying that although I've eaten other Mountain House freeze-dried food, I haven't had occasion to open the ones in the #10 cans (see my review of the "Mountain House 72-Hour Emergency Meal Kit"). That having been said, the Mountain House food I have tried has been very, very good tasting -- not just good compared to other survival foods, but good period. I have no reason to expect that these would be any different.

WEIGHT/CONVENIENCE - As steel cans, they're reasonably durable and reasonably lightweight (not backpacking light, but you don't have to be a weightlifter to move a large box of them). They do take up a bit of volume, but since the overwhelming majority of long-term emergency scenarios involve sheltering in place or evacuating by vehicle, I wouldn't let that be a deal breaker (personnally, I have a stock of individual pouches just in case I have to leave on foot, but most of my food is in these cans).

Flavor Name: Lasagna
Ha! Yeah, how do they?
I actually like Mountain House's Freeze Dried Lasagna, I would have rated it 5 stars, except it isn't exactly lasagna. Its more like an "Italian Pasta and cheese stew". Its a bit messy, but really Darn Tasty! You get alot of Mini-Lasagna noodles in a sweet tomato sauce, with real cheese chunks. Trust me it tastes alot better than I made it sound! The Stuff in the #10 cans keep for about 35 years! And it doesn't get any easier to prepare, Add water, wait!

Flavor Name: Ground Beef, Cooked Verified Purchase
Mountain House products have proven themselves to me and my family over the last ten years. Not only do they keep wonderfully in the un-opened can, but even after opening they CAN last for several months, just with a plastic bag and the re-sealable plastic lid. I have a friend who is disabled and living on a fixed income, and the Mountain House freeze dried entrees are a wonderful supplement to his pantry and table. I've learned to use them as ingredients in a lot of improvised stews and soups. They are unbeatable for situations where refrigeration is not available.

Flavor Name: Pilot Crackers
Mountain House stuff is the best I have found in emergency and long-storage foods. I had never tried these and was afraid they would taste like cardboard - but was pleasantly surprised. The flavor reminds me of town house crackers. They are like thick round crackers but not salty. In fact, they have a slight sweet taste but it's barely noticable. Good with deviled ham, cheese, butter, peanut butter, jelly, etc. They go well with most meals, IMHO, but I prefer something salty with some dishes, like chili. Excellent addition to emergency foods.
