I got this packet of camp food to try out with my seven and nine year old daughters. I wanted to see how they would respond to the flavor and they absolutely loved it. They also enjoyed mixing up the dinner. Preparation is easy, all you have to do is pour boiling water into the bag and let it sit. The instructions call for 1 and 1/3 cups of water, but I didn't measure and the food turned out fine.
Take caution when you open the bag because the freeze dried food is not contained in a separate wrapping. If you aren't careful, you could spill the contents. Also, you have to be sure to remove the oxygen absorbing packet before you add water. Once the food is prepared, the flavor is very good.
These packets have a shelf life until 2049. It's a great option for camping, or just for having a novelty meal with your kids.
