The essential surgical kit. There are 5 different food options in each bucket. It is easy to prepare an entree using just water. There is a long-lasting storage. Food pouches keep food fresh for up to 25 years. There are 5 unique ready-to- eat freeze-dried, gluten-free entrées in the vegetarian packs. They have shelf-stable food for hiking and camping.
👤I looked at the individual description labels on the back of the bucket and found wheat and soy. The first ingredient is wheat. The code for the bucket bar says it's free of wheat. I paid more money for this product. The time has expired for me to get my money back. I trusted this company to not sell fraudulent goods, but they have deceived people who need to eat wheat. This product can cause death if people have a sensitivity to thegluten.
👤It is not recommended for anything other than emergency use. Food items could not have been selected by anyone with a food allergy, but in an actual emergency, it's better than no food at all.
👤My husband is a prepper. Every family member has a bag that is designated for bug-out. We've tried many of these types of dry packed foods, so when we saw the chance to try this bucket at a discount, we agreed. I did not get this bucket for free and we prepared one of every meal to give a fair and honest review. There are 3 Teriyaki and Rice packs, 3 Chicken Pot Pie packs, 4 Loaded Baked Potato packs, and 7 Yogurt Flavored Desert Mix packs. There are 17 packs, with only 10 being actual meals. I couldn't rate this at 5 stars because of this. I assumed from reading the description that they would be individual meals or at least meals designed for 2 people. Each packet contains 4 calories. This works out for my husband and sons, but not for a single person. They would have to split the packets or make all of them and try to save some for later. I would split the packets, but you have to worry about the stuff spilling or mis-measuring. Not good. The food is pretty good. I'm not expecting a 5 star restaurant quality flavor in my meal, I'm speaking from experience of eating many similarly packed meals. We had my sister-in-law over for dinner and she made a lot of food, so we had another taste tester in the house. The individual reviews are listed below. The soup has tomato Basil. The bucket is the house favorite. My husband had a few small bowls. I don't think we mixed it well enough, there were little clumps of powder in it while we were eating. It was still the favorite in my home. When we go hiking in the cold months, we had a discussion about mixing it into thermoses. I would boil it longer, and use a whisk instead of mixing it with a soup spoon, because that would be the only thing that would be different. 2. Potato casserole. My favorite. My husband and my sister-in-law both rated this as their number two. I can't tell if it's bacon or ham, but it's delicious. It tastes like potato soup. You need a bowl and a spoon for soup, not a casserole. I might boil it a little longer next time, the ham/ bacon chunks were a little hard, but still tasty. If I'm going to make this while camping or something. I would add some shredded cheese to it. Maybe some green onions. 3. The chicken pot pie is made with chicken. The one that had mixed reviews was this one. I thought it was okay, husband didn't care for it, and sister-in-law couldn't eat it. My sister-in-law couldn't handle the texture, but we all agreed that it needed salt and pepper. It was very sticky. This was my toddler's favorite, but he doesn't talk, so I can't tell you why he loved it, just that it disappeared from his plate faster than any other entree choice. I can tell you that it had a very strong flavor, and that may be why I liked it more than everyone else. 4. Both Teriyaki and Rice are made with teriyaki sauce. Yuck. They can't all be perfect. I felt like I was eating ginger when I chewed it. I was unable to finish mine. My sister-in-law admitted that she ate too much ginger. My husband added a healthy dose of soy sauce, which toned down the ginger, but not enough for me to eat anymore. He said he almost liked the soy sauce more than the potato casserole. It isn't all bad, so plan to doctor it a bit. My toddler ate a good chunk of his portion, so he didn't dislike it. 5. There is yogurt. This was unexpected. We thought it would be thick and creamy, but it was very thin. Thinner than the soup. I used cold tap water to mix it with, but I think it would be better served in the cold. We might put it in the fridge next time. I'm not sure. The yogurt was divided into 3 mugs. It was about 1 1/2 to 2 inches deep per mug. We all agreed that it smelled amazing, like a cake batter or ice cream. The flavor was a bit less intense and the aftertaste was a bit too strong. It's not a terrible desert type. It's calories you can get through a straw. It could be worse. The bucket was pretty good, but I'm not sure which one was supposed to be the breakfast. We have plenty of meals to keep in our shelter, and we might use some of them for camping or hiking trips. We have time to eat them because they are good for 25 years.
A 25 year shelf life is possible. It's perfect for food storage, emergencies, survival, and everyday use. It is certified as being free of thegluten A 25 year shelf life is possible.
👤I received a lot of tomato powder rocks. I spent a lot of time breaking these tomato rocks apart because I needed to use it. My recipes did not call for one medium tomato rock. Had high hopes for this brand since someone else posted pictures of nicely powdered product. This is the product for people who don't like dealing with tomato rocks.
👤I bought the tomato powder for my food storage. I decided to open it so that I wouldn't have to go out to buy tomato sauce. It's really good tasting and versatile. It can be used to make tomato sauce, pasta sauce, or just add a little here and there to enhance the flavor. There is little or no waste because I only use the amount I need. I've thrown out a lot of cans of tomato sauce and the bottle of Ketchup that was too hard to get out of. I've thrown out a lot of canned tomato products because they leaked out of their cans. Tomato powder is shelf stable for a long time after opening. It's convenient and economical to use in everyday cooking.
👤The can was full of tomato powder. The canned product tastes the same when water is mixed in. I used some in my chili last night and it worked great. I will be using to make some dry mix soups and dinners. Will buy again.
👤I tried it out recently. I mixed a small amount of hot water with a small amount of powder, and the mixture swelled up to 3 times the powder amount. The paste tasted similar to a sauce used on spaghetti. It can be thick or thin, depending on how much water you use. It can be used as a tomato paste on pizzas. I found it on sale on Amazon. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. The star is taken off for a high price.
👤It tastes like Hunt's tomato products, with a very fruity and smokey flavour and a rare richness in powders. I use it to add a little extra flavour to my rice, but I also use it to make a tomato sauce, a spaghetti sauce, and a pizza sauce.
👤I use this more to make tomato sauce andpaste. Sprinkle some over the chicken before baking it and then add a spoon to the chicken soup. The can was slightly damaged on the side of the top but it was still sealed. After opening the can, I added a packet of O2 to each vacuum bag and measured out the amount I keep for daily use in a plastic container and filled vacuum bags with the same amount for future use. It added a really good tomato flavor to the homemade turkey stew I made.
👤This product is great for tomato soup or sauce. Extra flavor is added to home made soups. You can reconstitute it for juice, not my favorite method. I don't keep tomato paste. You can save space by turning this into tomato paste. The tomato powders I have tried have not been as good as this product. It's worth having for storage and use every day.
The maximum thickness is 8 mil with 4 mil on each side. Protection against pin holes is provided by three layers of aluminum, PE and PET. Long term food storage with mylar vacuum seal bags is Xray proof. The total calories are 6, 800. 100 calories per serving. Net weight is 4 lbs. The shelf life is up to 25 years.
👤I've been trying to make our meals more interesting. With restaurants closing or changing dramatically, we're making more of our meals at home, we tend to get focused on our online work at home, and will frequently order delivery or takeout because it's easier, so I've been experimenting with different options. We haven't been eating much of potatoes. We don't like them, but they're very labor intensive and you need to make something simple like mashed potatoes from a box. I don't keep fresh potatoes in the pantry because the ones on the bottom were purple and greenish before I got to the bag. When they reach that stage, it's unsafe to eat. They are a part of the nightshade family. They can be toxic in certain circumstances. I didn't like the sauce packets that came with the Au Gratin potato products because they had dehydrated, sliced potatoes in them. I used the bag or box of dehydrated potatoes as a substitute for buying the products. It was expensive to do it that way. I tried to find something else while I was on Amazon. I looked at the product in detail after I found it. I found the dehydrated, sliced potatoes in the 10 cans. I have figured out that a larger package is more economical for stapled items. The larger bucket was found at Augason's Amazon store. I got the bucket because it was about the same size as fresh potatoes and the economy of scale made it worth buying. It arrived a few days later. The LID is my only gripe with this product. I didn't buy a tool for opening these buckets because I didn't know if I'd be getting more of them, and I didn't want to buy a tool for a one-time use. I hate unitaskers in the kitchen, but in the long run it's a good aversion to have because of the fine points of cooking from the videos. Multi taskers are more economical. I had to open it myself. It was a challenge. I had to make small cuts with a knife to get enough flex to pop one corner up and off. The resealability of the bucket was not damaged. It took me 10 minutes to open that bucket, but I would get my patience back. I had no idea how much I'd need to use for my test dish, so I just looked at it. I filled a couple and put some cling-wrap over the top of the bucket to keep the bags in my cupboard at all times. The cling-wrap made it easier to take the lid off later. I salted the water on the stove as if I was making pasta. You want the water to taste very salty, like seawater, and you can do that with pasta as well. The potatoes absorb salt from the water. If you've over-salted a stock or a soup, you can toss in some potatoes and let it cook for a while. The potatoes will lower the saltiness of the liquid. It's a way to fix a dish in an emergency. You can use the potatoes for something else after removing them. If you cook potatoes in unsalted water, they will be tasteless and taste like wet starch. Not as good as cardboard. Salt your cooking water. You can't just add it to the final dish. The potatoes need salt to season them. I drained the potatoes after cooking them until they were close to the texture I wanted. I put the baking dish aside. I added enough milk to cover the potatoes in the pot, butter, and a pinch of kosher salt. The pepper I have had is the best I've had. I started adding cheese after I brought the pot to a boil. I buy bulk cheddar cheese powder online as it can be used in a lot of dishes. I stirred it in after adding about a quarter of it. It is similar to a mac and cheese dinner in that it is a flat cheese flavor. I stirred the Land O' Lakes New Yorker American Cheese until it was melted and incorporated. The main trick in making a cheese sauce is melting the salts in American cheese. If I add American cheese to the milk, I like the taste of that New Yorker American, but I could just add the melting salts on their own. I added a cup of shredded generic sharp cheddar cheese to my groceries. It lasts a long time because I keep it frozen. I added a quarter cup of whole milk mozzarella for the stringiness. I added an additional cup of heavy cream, gave it a stir, and then transferred it to the baking dish after everything was incorporated. I added some ground pepper to it after I tasted it. Ore-Ida's "Just Crack an Egg" breakfast cup was opened by me. It's a plastic cup with packets of pre-measured filling. You open these and empty them into a cup, add your own egg, and microwave it according to the directions. It's a very good breakfast. The "protein-packed" variety contains shredded cheddar and a packet of crumbled breakfast sausage and bacon, both precooked and well drained. I put the packets in my microwave for about 12 minutes and then put them back in. I left the liquid content in the dish high because I knew the second part of cooking would absorb most of it. The last 3 minutes of cooking, I put in my microwave's grilling rack and set it to grill for 3 minutes, making the top of the dish nice and brown. There are 3 cooking methods for my microwave. There are combinations of these as well. I dread having to replace it when it dies. The potatoes were just a tad al dente, so they were done and tender, but still had a bit of a chew, just the way I like them. The sauce was very complex and had a good cheese pull when you took a forkful. The breakfast cup added some complexity to the flavor. It was delicious. My life partner loved this dish so much that he went back for an extra spoon or two. This is high praise. There was only a small bag of leftovers as a snack. My partner liked potatoes. She said she wouldn't have known they were dehydrated if I hadn't told her they were dehydrated. Thanks to the large bucket size, I'll have these potatoes on hand for a long time, something we can all appreciate in these trying times. Augason farms has an excellent staple food product.
Their survival kits are suitable for birthday gifts or Christmas presents for dads, boyfriends, or children. They want you to love your purchase. They will give you a replacement or full refund if you are not satisfied. The 'Just in Case' Food Supply, The Survival Tabs, and the Bugout Food are backup for situations such as natural disasters. This is the best food in the smallest amount. When facing uncertainty, the body needs all the daily essential vitamins and minerals. The design is small and easy to store. The Bugout food contains all of the essential vitamins and minerals. It is made with the highest quality meat. GLUTEN free and non-GMO. This calculation is based on one average person. Consumption requirements can be different from person to person. The flavor is mixed. There are 4 x 180 tablets. 20 calories per tab for 12 chewable tablets. The bottle weight is approximately 1.8 pound. The dimensions are 7.5 x W 5 x D. The bottle weight is approximately 1.8 pound. The dimensions are 7.5 x W 5 x D.
👤How many tabs do you have? More like 180 and won't answer my messages.
👤I received one of the containers. For one container, it's $150. Hope you correct the mistake.
👤The description says there are 4 bottles. I received 3 bottles and 540 tabs. I was going to buy more if I liked these, because it's a simple way to prepare for emergencies and it has a long shelf life, but I was shorted an entire bottle.
👤This will be a great back up for any emergency. Natural disasters, stranded somewhere, or anything else can happen in this day and age. I laughed at a reviewer who was complaining about the daily calories. Something is better than nothing in an emergency. It's not a gourmet meal, but it's a great back-up for either nothing or filling in on limited food choices you may have in your pantry, as well as being a great way to meet your daily calories intake. In an emergency, you will have to use what you have on hand, and this is just another reassurance you can have somewhere in your home, or even take while camping for weeks on end in the middle of no where! This is a great addition to anyone who cares about preparing for an emergency, or just doesn't want to be taken by surprise in the event of an emergency. The Red Cross believes in a few days of preparation. Does it matter how it tastes if you are desperate?
👤Not bad. I tried a few. I can't say the flavor is exactly as described, but I can see how they'll help you feel like you've eaten something, even if you don't have vitamins or minerals.
👤I bought these for a worst case scenario to have the key minerals and ingredients. For 15 days, each container has 100 percent of your key nutrients. It's definitely expensive but it's cheaper than freeze dried food as I have quite a few of these and ramen for pure empty calories. I think they taste really good. It's a key component to any survivalist.
👤If this keeps 25 years, I think you'd need more than that to survive, but it works for me. They tasted really good when I tried them. You would need about 3 times the ration per day. They don't take a lot of space. I'll buy a few.
👤I only received a 30 day supply of survival tabs after ordering a 60 day supply. I paid 158 dollars for a 60 day supply.
👤Good product. It took a long time to get here. Canada customs is to blame for that.
Excellent gift for your friends, kids or anyone in your life. There are survival tips inside for you and your family. 25,600 total calories per day. It's easy to prepare. Just add some water. A 25 year shelf life is possible.
👤I feel like what you get is over priced. I have vacuumed more than this contains for a quarter of the price. Don't be lazy. There is not a lot of food in this box.
👤Quite disappointed. Fettuccine and milk sub were good. I could not stomach anything else. It was bad tasting food for most of the time. Everything is compromised of pasta and soup. Extreme rip-off! The company is taking advantage of people. Go clear. Don't buy! You can get a bunch of pasta and soup at Walmart. You can get the same thing at Walmart for a fraction of the cost. There is a I would slap the taste out of their mouths if they were in front of me. Thank you.
👤The survival kit has a good value. I can't review the food because I never plan on eating anything unless I have to. The mile, bananas, and everything else will all be gone in 25 years. I don't need milk or bananas to survive, so why not replace them with something that will last 25 years? One of my pouches had a small gash. I shook the bag and found a small amount of powder. Most of this stuff requires water to be boiled. In a survival situation, you can just add water and shovel it down. All the food and the pouches would need at least 6.5 gallons of water. That's a lot of water. I live in Minnesota, so if a tornado or snow hit, I'd have to eat emergency food. I keep the food in my storage room in the basement with no windows, in either case. I can mix the food with the water from my water heating system in case of an emergency.
👤If you were thinking that this bucket contains ready-to- eat food for two weeks, it doesn't. It requires a large cooking vessel, a heat source for cooking, and a good amount of water. You will need the following to use this kit as directed. A heat source that can cook the good for hours. A large cooking pot with six gallons of water for cooking the food in this kit. It's on me for not reading through the description and product photos more before ordering, but I'd like to point something out in case you also didn't. It's not obvious in the description that it's not easy to split packets into smaller, individual portions because some of the ingredients are clumped together until you cook them. Even though it's marketed for a single person, you'd end up making meals that include eight serving of soup or rice. My biggest issue with the family-sized packets is that they don't need to be refrigerated, but there will be a lot of leftover food, so you'd want to keep it cold. I live in southern Arizona where it's not cold enough to keep food out of the environment, so I'd either need a working refrigerator or just eat a packet of food a day. Milk and banana chips can be split into individual portions, and they don't require cooking. I've made a soup and eaten some chips. The soup will fill you up and keep you alive, but it isn't very good and doesn't have any chicken flavor. It tastes so bland because it already has a bit of salt in it. The smell was great, but the taste wasn't right. I would be happy to have it in an emergency. Assuming that I had enough fuel to boil nearly three quarts of water and then cook it for 25 minutes, and that I could safely store all of the leftovers. The banana chips are pretty good. I will never be able to verify the claim of a 25-year storage life for this bucket of food. I'm not going to be digging this out of the pantry for another round of chicken soup if I'm still alive at that point. I probably won't be updating my review if I need it sooner. The vegetable soup was a good indicator and I would say that the food is filling if not particularly good. I was hoping this would be tailored for me with smaller serving sizes given the product name, because I don't like the large packet sizes. I'm glad that I could try it, but I won't be stocking up on it.

👤This is a kind of gruel that makes you feel better after eating it. The flavor is ok. The guy at Augason farms was a jerk. I told him that they make good products. This is not one of them.
👤To test. The dried veg took 4 cups of water. It was brought to boil with a bit of bullion and then covered with it. Great taste. The texture of the vegetable was satisfying. It was bought to supplement backpacking meals. Will be buying again.
👤I've been slowly buying from this company, one product every couple of weeks, to carefully become used to preparing meals from a hydrated base, and the results are indescribably amazing. I have 8 different products that taste great, and every dish can be prepared in less than an hour. A max time of 10 minutes to finalize the cooking and a 10 minute soak in water or milk to bring dried food back into its original soft consistency. From stove to table is an amazing experience in food preparation. The shelf life for any variety after opening real containers is 10 years. It's not necessary to keep it refrigerated or freeze to keep. The costs for any of these products are not more than buying fresh, and with several products, the cost is less than fresh. The greatest benefit of being able to buy any and all of these products is that you don't have to stand in line at the checkout. If there is a way to improve daily life in the 21st century by increasing people's time to relax and enjoy things, these products are the way to go.
👤This stuff is not good. The vegetables in the pictures are not chunks of vegetables. There is a powder of material. It might be dried paint dust. So disappointed and disgusted.
👤I bought this for convenience and it is great. High quality vegetables. It's hard to match the convenience of just adding a cup of pre-cut veggies to a stew.
👤I wanted to try this out before adding more cans. A bit of meat can be turned into a meal. I tried the vegetables with just soup and it was very good. Adding lots of vegetables into the emergency/survival ration is highly recommended. It's a great way to make your own freeze dry packets.
👤I bought a can of this to try and like it. I made a cup of this with canned chicken. It was very tasty. I make up all kinds of recipes, and my latest one is "soup 13". Here it is. 2 cups Auguson Farms vegetable stew. Two cans cut green beans. If you like tomato sauce, you can get 1 can. If you want a little zing, you can diced tomatos from Kroger. I like these more than fresh onions. I'll think you'll like it if you try it. I bought 6 more cans of vegetable stew because I like it so much.
👤We all need to stock up on any brand of food that has a long shelf life. I've tried Augason Farms food along with several others and they are just as good, if not better, than the others, they taste good, have a long shelf life, and a good verity, and they are cheaper than the others.
The rice should be washed thoroughly with water. Combine 2 cups of water with 1 cup of rice. Salt, olive oil, or butter is desired. The water and rice should be boiled. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a low simmer. Leave and cook for 45 minutes. At the end of the cook time, check if the rice is tender. Continue cooking if it is still hard, add a little more water if necessary. If the rice is not done by 10 minutes, you should check it every 10 minutes. Let rice stand for 10 to 15 minutes after it is removed from the heat. Before serving, fluff with a fork. A delicious breakfast! Eggs, hams, bacon, peppers, and onions. It is possible to freeze-dried to lock in freshness. There was no need for refrigeration. No artificial flavors or colors are included, and the product is certified to be free of wheat. There are four 2-serving pouches in the case. A pouch is a great place to keep your food. Add hot water to the pouch and eat in less than 10 minutes. The pouches have a bowl-like shape for easier eating. Don't eat from the dishes! Pouches are lightweight and portable and are perfect for camping and backpacking trips. You can eat in your tent. It's great for emergency food storage. TerraCycle uses recycled packaging to reduce waste. SHELF STABLE is the longest proven shelf life in the industry. A 30-year taste guarantee. It's great for emergency food storage.
👤We have been eating breakfast skillet for a while. I notice cans that look familiar and new cans that are different. Both cans have a 30 year shelf life, but familiar cans have a 2012 release date and have 24 ounces inside. The new cans have a release date in 2020 and a higher cost. The old cans had 400 calories in a 1 cup serving and 260 calories in a 1 cup serving. The calories make a huge difference when used for hiking or survival. I am not happy with Mountain house.
👤I bought a new package of Breakfast Skillet from my local outdoor store and assumed it would be the same product I have been eating for several years. Mountain House has completely changed the look of the breakfast skillet. The texture is completely different and the taste is completely different. I really liked the "Old" style in the previous packaging, so I don't think this is an improvement. I have to either buy the old style or find a new breakfast from a different manufacturer. This is disappointing news to me and other people.
👤I have purchased hundreds of cans of Mountain House breakfast skillet for expeditions since 2013 and have used them as my go-to solution for bulk long term breakfast supply, but no more. The new white cans contain less product and less calories. I will not purchase this product again, at least not in this format. Too bad, I really enjoyed it.
👤Before the review of the Breakfast Skillet, there are two things. I have been enjoying the original breakfast skillet for many years and consider it to be my favorite meal from the series. It has been eaten for more than just breakfast. There is a I have already read many negative reviews of the new Breakfast Skillet from the MH and I can't believe that they would change the recipe to make it taste different. My review is simple, I will never eat the new Breakfast Skillet again because I'm returning the other packets that I purchased at the same time. I was hoping the other reviews were just that, reviews in today's world, negiative. All the negative reviews are true after I tried it for myself. It is not like the original Breakfast Skillet. I don't know how to describe the taste other than Garbage is fitting, the sausage feels like rubber when trying to choke it down, and I can't believe the people responsible at MH approved using the original Breakfast Skillet name for this stuff. Don't trust my review. Try it at home before you go on the trail. If you agree that the new Breakfast Skillet is Garbage, then you should write about it. Before they turn some of their other meals into Garbage, they need to be informed. The "Classic" breakfast skillet was brought back in January 2022. You have to question why they are so smart. The sales of the New or the Breakfast Skillet from Peak Refuel were poor. Peak Refuel has a breakfast skillet. The backpack will have room for the Classic, but it will be below the Peak Refuel.

👤The craziness of the coronaviruses was heating up. Several other items I've bought from Augason Farms have come as advertised. I've tried them 3 times. Rehydrating them per instructions was the first time. When dry, they are about the same thickness of potato chip. They get to about the thickness of the tortilla chip. I used to cook them in a cast iron skillet. When I looked at them, I thought they would be good for potatoes. My second try was potatoes a la Prepper. I used the rehydrated potatoes, sauted some diced onion in butter, and added about 3 ounces of grated cheese to fill the cake pan, which was about 1/3 of the way deep. I baked it at 350 F for 40 minutes after pouring that over the potatoes, adding a scoop of the water I had used to rehydrate them, and sprinkling it on top. I used the hydrated potatoes left over from the third try to make has browns the next morning. None of these were great dishes. All were ok. They should be a nice change from rice or pasta, if I were a better cook. There is a I'm not thrilled about a couple things, one of which is that they are peeled. In a long term emergency, getting all the micro-nutrients we can will be important, so if they could do unpeeled version without sacrificing much in the way of shelf life. If they could be a bit thicker, I would prefer that, since they are too thin to work well in some dishes. I'll be ordering more.
👤Product tastes good. Nice looking potatoes. The price is too high for what it is. I can get the same potatoes in a box for less at the store. You get the mix. They last a long time if vacuum pack them. It might be worth it for survival situations.
👤I used them in a casserole. They turned out great after following the directions on the can. I couldn't tell the difference between these and fresh potatoes. The price seems to be on point. Will definitely order more.
👤I bought this product for emergencies and everyday use. I only have myself to cook for when I'm a senior. I don't cook a lot, so potatoes tend to spoil before I use them. If I buy dried potatoes and other vegetables for emergencies and everyday use, it's cheaper. I don't have to worry about storage or running to the store when I want to pick up fresh veggies because I only have to hydration what I eat. I was able to get rid of my freezer as well, as I never used the foods I had prepared or bought frozen.
👤I can't go out to shop as most of the time it's not possible to find this product that allows for my favorite dishes and fresh potatoes.
👤The product is not usable because the seal was damaged. I would have to pay for a new one. This purchase is a complete loss because the cost to return exceeds the cost of the product.

👤I ordered 2 containers. I received a 15 day supply container and 5 bags of tabs. If my math is correct, I was shorted by 60 tabs.
👤I used a large package of these for a couple of weeks to fast. They work to take the edge off your hunger. There is a If you've ever tasted powdered coffee creamer, it's somewhat similar to the strawberry-cream taste, but better tasting. Twelve of the tablets have 100% of the USRDA of vitamins and minerals. If you only eat 12 of these, you're still getting vitamins and minerals, which is good for you. I haven't tried the other flavors yet, but if you like strawberries, coffee creamer and emergency ration, there's nothing wrong with them, except the price, which I'd like to see reduced.
👤I ordered two of them. I have to give a low rating because the seal on these containers are really substandard, and I want to love this product, but I have to give it a low rating. The bottles I ordered had broken seals. This was not caused by shipping because the box and contents are damage free. The big problem with the seal method is that the bottles are sealed with a round piece over the mouth of the container. The pop on/off top is covered in plastic. I opened the lid after cutting the plastic wrap off the top, but the inner seal was gone. The reason I bought them in the first place was because they would be a great product and this issue negates the 25 year shelf life. This kind of seal is not up to par. I returned both. I would like to point out that this manufacturer makes mylar bagging tablets in smaller quantities and higher per day price than these bottles. If you're like me, where the 25 year shelf life is essential for buying the product, then these containers are not enough to see this product live up to its claim. The plastic seal around the lid is not proof of proper seal of the contents. If they fix this issue, it could be a great product that I would buy several of because they are compact and unlike freeze dried food packs, they don't require water, which is fantastic.
👤I've been buying them for a while. If you have an electric stove, you can cook if the electric goes out. If the electric goes out during a storm and it takes a few weeks to get it back, everything in your fridge or freezer might go bad. If you have these, you will not be left starving. When you don't feel like eating, these will keep you going with the vitamins you need. These are good for hiking and camping when you can't take a lot of food. It's always a good idea to have them on hand in real emergencies. You can take these with you if you get flooded. These will still be good even if your items at home get ruined. They have the flavor. The flavor is not very strong. In times of need, you will be happy to have them. I've never had a bottle in 25 years. I have had them for a decade. They are a blessing. I would recommend them to anyone who is trying to prepare for survival. My adult son and I have relied on them for up to a month at a time when times were bad.
Can draw from almost any fresh water source. The water is lightweight and extremely compact. Individual sachets are ideal for storage. 60 ft3 (1.70 m3) is the pallet volume. It's easy to put in a survival kit with a pre-measured sachet. Such, Canadian Coast guard, EC and New Zealand approval.
👤I am a prepper nerd and I have been checking the water being sold in these small pouches. Many are just tap water and bags. The total dissolved solids are referred to as theTDS. I have seen a range from 100-300 parts per million. The water is pure. I did a simple test here and the lab tested it and both came out as 4 parts per million. The purity of the water is 10 parts per million. The soft taste and slightly acidic PH of around 5 is what Reverse Osmosis Water has been heavily Filters through for taste. Very happy with the package.
👤I received a case of water with an expired date on it. The bottom of the box was wet, so I knew we had a leak when I put the case with my emergency storage. When I opened the case to look for the leaking packet of water, I found that all but 19 of the 64 packs had expired by the time I received the package. The other 19 were older. They had a date in the future. One of the 2 water paks that were unexpired had a leak. It was as if this company tried to hide the expired water in a different case and then placed enough paks over the top of those to try to pass it off as okay. They would have fooled me if one of the packs had not leaked. This company was dishonest.
👤We bought a box of these to distribute among our bags. We haven't tasted it yet, but we hope we never have. It doesn't sound romantic to drink out of a plastic packet. I'm happy to have it. It looks like it's a great backup for water in your house, car, bug out bags, whatever you can think of. Many of them come in a box and are very affordable. If you need some water in an emergency, you can distribute them among the various areas of your life. The packets are very lightweight and durable. I think it's very sturdy and should be cut with a knife to puncture it. They arrived quickly, packaged well and were a good value. We are looking forward to never using them. My wife and I found this one to be the best emergency water out there, but there are many other brands, and you can find a different one that you like better. Other options include water tablets, water bottles, and so on. Depending on your circumstances, you may want to look at other options. I am very happy with what we received and I look forward to never having to use them.
👤This is a big part of my bags and I want to give it 5 stars. There were two pouches inside the box. There were no visible tears or cuts on the bags, they just leaked out of the seals. The book that Amazon had packed in the same box was damaged when the water leaked out of the box. They were packing a book in the same box as a case of water. The water in the undamaged pouch is fine. The one I opened was packed in the year of 2017: it was fresh and clean.

👤Not an MRE alternative. 5 large bags of dry ingredients cost more than what I could buy at the store and still require a pot and water to make. It's only useful in the ideal survival scenario. It is worthless for survival and a waste of money.
👤The bag is sealed with rice, beans, macaroni and pancake mix. It would be cheaper to buy it at the store. You need a pot and water to cook food. It is not like a MRE that you just add water and cook. The packaging is thick and seals tight. Customer service is great.
👤I was expecting a premade meal. The money was wasted.
👤It comes out to about 16 cents per 100 calories. You can't beat that. Some of it is white rice. It's in a package for 25 years. You have to replace it every couple years. I'm going to buy more. You could eat 1000 calories a day with the other 2 week supplies, but only if you had one box. Think about it. A family of 4 can have a month's supply of food for $200.
👤I bought these because I wanted to save them for a rainy day or flash flood, but I haven't opened them yet. I like the packaging, it makes it look nice to get a box of food, but I wish there was a different type of box for storage since I live in the Pacific Northwest and everything gets damp. I could put the food in a tote. The food is in a nice package. I thought it was cute that it told you when it was born. We can make it last for a while if we give a lot of serving for practical reasons. I was happy to get the emergency food and put it in a cute box. Maybe take it camping this summer.
👤It is a great price for a basic meal prep. It comes in a box that is crushed by your door. The company needs a better package after the contents were not damaged. I would buy one a month if it came better packaged. It is difficult to stack the product when the box is bulging. I'm going to buy some buckets to put it in. It seems to be good.
👤I don't buy military ration if there's no fuel or fire. This is a lot of food for a small amount of money. Having long lasting grains like this gives me some peace of mind.
👤I found that I should start just in case. The case was worth the price for a first timer. It doesn't take up much space in our limited storage and the packaging is secure, so there are no worries about anything going bad. The ingredients are straight forward and easy to make. I recommend!
