    Mountain House Beef Stew is probably one of the better rounded meals from Mountain House. The beef, peas and carrots were all consistent with each other. The gravy had plenty of flavor. There was nothing bland or overbearing about the beef stew. Overall, this is going to be added to my preps.

    Trying some food items I have put back for testing. I just polished off a can of beef ravioli that was almost two years past "best by" date. It still tasted fine. As fine as canned beef ravioli can taste. Also, had a can of Vienna sausages that was five months past. All fine....so far. A can of...

    Hey guys. I'm obviously new here, but I've been researching long term food storage and am up to date on most of the basic techniques for doing so. I'm in the planning stages of getting my food ready. I have to acquire my buckets and pick and store the foods that I want to keep until I get...

    spotted an interesting article posted on Survivalmom.com; http://thesurvivalmom.com/2012/07/12/mountain-house-educates-consumers-on-the-presence-of-high-oxygen-content-in-competitors-products/ Oregon Freeze Dried down in Albany, Oregon decided to evaluate Wise Foods claims to 25 year shelf life...

    Just a small rant. Please ignore if you don't want to read something like this. Eat what you prep, prep what you eat. Rotation is critical. Really? This is just a personal opinion, and I'm not knocking those who say buy only what you eat, eat what you prep, and rotate your food as essentials...

    So I'm looking to buy some pre-made food for SHTF storage. What brands of food and mre's are the best for the price on the market right now? I was looking at the wise grab n go buckets. Mainly because of the easy storage. But im wondering if their is anything else that is on market at comparable...

    So this is just my opinion to play the devils advocate, if nothing else. Feel free to argue otherwise :-) . Why waste money on an MRE? First of all, after eating like 6 billion MRE meals in the field and over seas I can say that they officially suck and you never get any damn jalapeno cheddar...

    First, I don't work for them, don't know them, etc. Ok, so much for the disclaimer...lol. For those of you who do like the product, and I realize that's not everyone, just got notice from Costco that, and I don't know how many weeks it'll last or how many "kits" they have, but the offer is...

    Hi I'm new, just looking for the best place to buy MREs. Thanks

    two schools of thought on food storage first; stock up the foods you eat now. you will be familiar with taste/preparation if something happens. however, might not be portable, and might require water/fuel. other; stock up on mres, food bars, dehyd. will travel better and keep for awhile, and...

    If you are planning on surviving some kind of long term SHTF survival situation, then your plans should include food production. Stockpiling rice, beans, oats, corn, freeze dried foods,,, is fine and dandy. The problem with having a static food supply, it “is” going to run out sooner or later...

    http://www.naturalnews.com/034811_BPA_canned_food_soup.html Just posted this in the VIP section but I also wanted all people to read this about the BPA in the canned foods (some as hi as 1200% legal limits). I have read so much about people in this forum buying and storing the canned items...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Doing either Wise Foods or E-foods direct tomorrow.....Leaning towards Wise... Both seem fine - but in any event I am doing a one year supply to truck out to the cabin. To me they are both fine - thoughts? BTW I have had the chili and dumplings that wise makes - that is freaking tasty....I...

    I need a little help with mylar bags and o2 absorbers please. I am in college and have VERY limited space, so I've decided to just buy 1.5 gallon bags to store my preps in and stash them places around the dorm. I figured I can fit a lot more of them places than I can with 5 gallon bags in...

    My SHTF food preps include mylar bags, #10 cans, MREs and canned goods. In this article and video ware going to discuss making up 20 mylar bags of rice, beans, oatmeal,,,,, and various other items. Awhile back I made up some homemade superpails of oats, rice and beans. I found the 5 gallon...

    Went out to dinner with my mom tonight since we haven't had a chance to quite a while. One of the first things she said was that she had something for me. I wasn't really expecting anything and was quite surprised by the 2 cans she handed me. 24oz. of Canned Beef. These were given to her...
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    My food preps consist of uncooked (rice, corn meal, oat meal,etc), fillers (oils, sugars, honey, etc.), spices & salt, freeze dried, and canned ready to eat stuff. Much of this last category is in #10 cans from places like Costco. Here is my problem, I am growing concerned that my wife, three...
