Overall I'd say this is a decent product but due to there being a little bit more tools and preparation needed to make this (you need to actually dump it into a pot and continuously stir, vs pouring in water and forgetting about it) I would rate it just behind competitors. The Pasta Primavera was actually good enough for me to scoop up the remaining sauce on my plate and eat it though, so that does count for something. But, even though the price/calorie ratio is really a bargain with this product, I think I will stick to Mountain House for my emergency food supply just because it is so much easier to make. I think this product could greatly benefit from redesigned packaging that would include cutting the portion sizes per packet in half, making it so the packets can stand up on their own when full of water (thus they must also change the cooking directions on the packet to use about half as much water, to remove the need to boil out the excess moisture of the water which makes the pasta saucy instead of soupy), and adding a ziplock top not only so that it can cook in its own bag but also so that you can save whatever portions you might not eat for later.
A. Size of portions: Each packet contains 4 servings and they are 4 large servings. It says you can prepare half the packet, but figuring out what is exactly half is going to require more measuring devices.
B. It takes 71/2 cups of boiling water and 12-15 minutes of low-boiling to prepare these things. Again, anyone doing real camping without an actual stove is going to have a difficult time getting this done. It takes about 5-6 minutes to boil 2 cups of water on my camp stove and it's damned efficient. I'm not even sure it could boil 71/2 cups of water and keep it "low-boiling" for 12-15 minutes. It would likely take it 20 minutes just to get the water to boil. And I don't take pots that can hold 71/2 cups of water on a camping trip. Only people who are pretend camping can do that.
With that said, these things are darned delicious. I bought some to test and they are really tasty. If you're going on a trip and are staying in a hotel or something that offers a kitchenette, these things would save you some money on dining costs. Or, if you just want to save on a week's worth of groceries for dinner, these would do fine. But don't buy these to take camping or particularly as some sort of survival kit.
What makes this product stand out though is two things: First, I cooked the Stroganoff up for dinner last night for the family, because I wanted to try it and make sure everyone would be willing to eat it if we needed it in an emergency. My teenager and I both had seconds, and my wife who just started a diet a week ago only wanted a little bit to try (one spoonful), but I gave her a small amount (maybe 1/3 cup) and she then wanted some more! LOL Also, we have almost 3 yr old twins, one wasn't that hungry apparently because she didn't want to try it (or anything else at that time), and the other one who is our pickier eater tried it and said his new favorite word for food... "delicious!", and he asked for seconds too! 6 cup serving size was enough for us to all feel like we had a good meal and we had a tiny bit left over. The only thing I would add is that if it was possible, I'd prefer to cube and brown some beef to throw in with it, as this is a vegetarian meal... I missed the meat! BUT, it WAS very good, especially for a quick and easy meal. Time to boil the water, cook it, cool down for 5 min... about 30 minutes total, and easy enough that I have no problems cooking dinner like this! :)
My second note about how pleased I am with it is due to emailing the company... the packets were all just made in November 2014, and I was curious if the one that had a slit in it was still edible or not. I've never bought any dehydrated meals before, so wasn't sure. Anyway, Amy from the company responded quickly, within a day or so, and said to please throw it away and she would happily send me a replacement free of charge, just asked for a picture if possible to give to their engineers, and the order number and codes off the damaged packet, and my address. So, even though I wasn't asking for a replacement, since Amazon had given me a partial refund, she offered it without hesitation. That's good customer service, and they've earned my business... after getting back to normal paychecks here in a few more weeks, I certainly will order more, as I thinks this is a great and easy way to store up some food for whatever disaster may strike, whether tornado, economic problem, or I guess WW3! Thanks Legacy!
