Mountain House Review Part 2: Freeze Dried Food

Hello everyone! Here's part 2 of the Mountain House freeze Dried Food Pouch review. Apologies for the delay. The audio track for the original footage I recorded a few weeks ago was barely audible & I havent had the chance to re-record till today. so here goes:




The preparation for this is pretty straightforward. Boil water (3/4 cup for this one), pour in pouch after removing the oxygen pack, stir, and seal back up. Let it sit for about 10 minutes then serve.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this as far as flavor goes but it was surprisingly tasty - not in a stale, been sitting around forever kind of tasty. It was pretty good.

I've tasted three different entrees so far and I like all of them. This kind of food supply would be beneficial for campers / hikers / RVers / Van dwellers / road trippers or just to have around the house for general preparedness reasons. I would even recommend this for people / families that go on road trips. I know with my family, we get sick and tired of eating the same thing when traveling so I think I'm going to have to take a box of these for our next trip.
It definitely wouldn't hurt to have a few of these in your pantry. It doesn't take up much room at all and the price for each pouch is reasonable.

Disclosure: Nitro-Pak did supply a few of these for review but this is not a paid advertisement meaning I did not receive cash compensation to do this review. I try to be fair and objective with any reviews I do because I'm a consumer too. I like to seek out reviews before I commit to a product and I would want bloggers & vloggers out there to do the same that way I know for sure if the product is worth purchasing or not. There, now that's out of the way. =)

Many thanks to Nitro-Pak for the samples.

Mountain House Freeze Dried Food Review - Part 1


 

First off, many thanks to Nitro-Pak for sending over products for review.

Disclaimer: All opinions are 100% mine. For all reviews, I try my best to be objective and honest about my impression of the product.

***

I received a few sample packets to try out so I started with the chili Mac with Beef. Preparation was pretty straightforward. Remove oxygen absorber from the pouch, add hot water, seal the pouch, and leave it alone to cook for a few minutes.
Afterwards, simply stir and serve.

As I've mentioned on the vlog, I was mainly concerned about it being to salty. I watch my sodium intake for health reasons and I don't eat a lot of processed foods so I was expecting this to be way too salty for my palate. On the contrary, this particular flavor was actually pretty tasty and didn't taste too salty for me. So I'm hoping the rest of the pouches will be just as good.

Stay tuned for part 2 of this video review with accompanying blog post where I'll actually record the preparation of one of these pouches and conclude with my final thoughts.

Stay tuned.
