I can’t seem to find the ingredient lists.


#5

So…what size are the meals? Family, Individual, or lilliputans?


#6

Judging from the larger picture that I see here: http://www.mountainhouse.com/M/product/0080698.html

it looks like these are individual or double portions, not family size. 2.6 pounds shipping weight is certainly more than snacking size. I think you have to chase down the product code for each packet to get a definitive answer as to sizing.

Seems like a pretty good deal; cheaper than other sites.

My husband and I are backpackers and have tried many brands of freeze-dried meals. Most are rather disgusting. Mountain House is the best-tasting brand we’ve tried - they’re quite good. I highly recommend them. They also rarely go on sale. We have tried all 4 of those entree flavors and liked them all. In our experience, this size entree package feeds one person (although it says 2 servings), especially if you’re expending a lot of energy backpacking or doing something strenuous.

Yes, I bought this three weeks ago and I was extremely surprised to see a 2027 date in all of them.

This is kind of a strange kit - there’s enough for 2 days (2 entrees/ day) if you don’t have breakfast for one. I guess you could have the crumble for breakfast.
