Emergency Food Rations – A Review of Mountain House 72-Hour Emergency Meal Kit

Years ago Mom and or Grandma had a food cellar where they stocked up on food just in case of an emergency. This custom has virtually disappeared from the American lifestyle. Thus the advent of emergency food rations, freeze dried foods. You never know when you might experience an emergency. With the recent horrendous snow storms on the east coast, and the severe weather on the west coast, it is smart to be prepared. The Mountain House 72-Hour Emergency Meal Kit is the perfect answer with meals for three days for one adult, and you will rest easy knowing you or your family are ready in case of hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, and other events. Some people also take these delicious foods camping and backpacking as they are easy to pack and easy to enjoy. They are ideal when there is a power outage, as you only have to add water. The Mountain House Company cooks fresh or frozen foods and then freeze dries them so the flavor and goodness are locked in. Backpackers have said these are the best-tasting freeze dried food they have ever had. You don’t have to add anything or cook anything to get a complete meal.

This Mountain House meal kit includes three breakfasts, three side vegetables, and six 10 ounce packets of lunch or dinner entrees, food enough for an adult for three days. Included are granola with blueberries and milk, scrambled eggs with bacon, scrambled eggs with ham and pepper, garden green peas, whole kernel corn, cut green beans, beef stroganoff, chicken teriyaki, chili mac with beef, rice and chicken, pasta primavera, and sweet and sour pork with rice. All this emergency survival food can be prepared easily in challenging circumstances by adding water, and have a seven year shelf life. Satisfied customer Christopher Coakley of Santa Barbara, California said, “Mountain House meals typically taste better than many of the freeze-dried alternatives.” My son agrees with Mr. Coakley, and takes them on motorcycle trips because they are also so easy to pack.

The Mountain House food for emergencies are preserved because greatly reduced amount of water halts microorganisms and enzymes that would result in spoiling the food. That allows the food to be stored without refrigeration. Satisfied customer M.O. Gomez of Northern California said, “The food is amazingly good. We purchased this to add to our earthquake preparedness kit, but we tasted the stroganoff before we filed the rest away. It was surprisingly yummy.” The chili mac with beef is a favorite of my daughter’s. Mountain House has put a lot of thought and care into their food preparation, and customers appreciate the taste of these hearty, well-balanced meals. I know when camping my family appreciates a hot meal, and during an ice storm Maine had the Mountain House foods we had collected were doubly appreciated. In my opinion the foods taste as good as if I had cooked them myself from scratch. I find also that they are very easy to store as they take up little room.
