The Mountain House foods are a cut above the other brands; real food and meals compared to mush or cup a soup for the most part with the other brands. The other brands are rice with a few veggies, or mac n cheese for their big stick to your ribs meal! The other brands don't have enough calories when they have a bucket, usually around 1000 which is great if you want to go on a starvation diet but if you are a adult you should figure 2 buckets per adult and you are going to get sick of the same bland bland bland food. Mountain House foods have a wider assortment of entrees, and one of my favorites is the blueberry granola w/milk which you can eat plain as a snack. They have desserts like cheese cake! Mountain House has lasagna with real meat sauce and if possible the only complaint too much cheese? If someone really does like mac n cheese Mountain House has some too, but it's more of a side. You can buy #10 cans of meat by themselves too as well as vegetables and fruit so you can make your own meals. I ordered beef stew and chicken alfredo as some of our family favorites. I have dried eggs in my cupboard just in case I am baking and I don't have eggs on hand, you can't tell the difference at all. I have dried milk in my cupboard but I buy it by superpail... you can use it to thicken alfredo sauces without calories.

A good comparison between Mountain House and Honeyville or Wise would be going to a good sit down restaurant (MH) and a restaurant (HV,W) where all the meat is precooked and just rewarmed where they had the pink slime controversy. I am a cook, bake my own bread so I don't eat out very often at all and couldn't think of buying Wise or Honeyville. My husband would be very hungry and have to eat about 3 servings at a time. I bought Mountain House with him in mind.... Real Food! Very satisfying. Just use HOT water

I have posted this twice because I didn't feel like writing a review because I blindly bought two buckets of this stuff, I hope this review helps. : )
O.k. I have only tried one packet (Beef and Mac) out of this bucket, but I am immediately impressed. This is my wife's account, so I am posting under her . I am in the military and in the Special Operations community. I purchased this food for emergencies obviously, to paint an accurate picture my wife and I make 90% of what our Family eats to include home made bread, biscuits, jelly's and jams etc. I am very picky on what I eat, and what my family puts in their bodies. Ingredient wise there are a few ingredients I wish were not in the packet(preservatives), but it is emergency food with that being said.
I decided to make the packet exactly as directed on the back of the package with out adding anything at all to it. No extra spices or seasoning at all ( cholula or tabasco would have made it amazing) it rivals the hamburger helper dishes you buy at the store, the beef taste fine, it has a very slight off taste, but over all for a packaged meal I will loose no sleep in giving it a 10+ it is extremely light weight which makes for an easily portable meal that keeps you light on your feet. Your kids could pack 10 of these in their go bags and it will only add about 1lb in weight to there pack. Each pouch has 2-2.5 servings in it totaling about 800calories, and they last for up to 25years ( awesome).
The meal was very filling I think the one bag of 2.5 servings would have satisfied me and filled my 3 girls up,Their ages range from 4-8 years old. Keep in mind that the one cup serving size is what we should all be eating not what we are used to ( the american habit of over indulging on everything).

This product is exactly as described. Great packaging, the bucket is very light weight, no rips or tears in the bags, etc. I'm sure I can stuff some emergency blankets, matches, etc., in the bucket too. (Which I plan to do in fact.)

I've noticed some grouching about cost. Over a period of time i have eaten a number of emergency rations --and these are easier to prep, and taste much better than any of the others. I have lived the survival lifestyle in different ways for a long time.
one was with shelter, 4 hrs into the wilderness, over 3 years that time. i'm good at what i do, know how to make things dead w/ only a .22 -bake bread in dutch oven, and so much more. and know what it is like to eat on the run. so time and simplicity is of the essence. this item fills it all. and IN HARSH CONDITIONS ONE OF THE MOST DEPRESSING THINGS IN YOUR DAY CAN BE A DULL CRAPPY MEAL, this is not what you need to add to a situation where you need to be sharp. it is possible to fill in less tastier and cheaper meals w/ this item, if you want a better cost balance. the person who wrote and all of the people who replied to

need to take heed to this---and if you have questions to what it is really like and what you may need/want please feel free to ask--even if i have no answer i will try my best to point you toward someone who does.

I've purchased Mountain House products in the past. They are not the best product available, but they do taste good; and are economical. I like the packaging. You simply tear the top back, add boiling water and close the zip lock closure. I purchased two of the buckets for easy storage for emergencies. We live in a tornado prone area in northeast Alabama. It's not uncommon to lose power for several days. I can boil water on my backpacking stove, and have a hot meal for my family. I recommend this product for emergencies or a backpacking trip into the wild.
