Mountain House® Product Review

We want to take this opportunity to share with you why we like Mountain House’s products so much. Here are some advantages of Mountain House foods:

Trusted name – Mountain House's reputation has been growing for nearly 40 years. It is no wonder they have award-winning meals.

Flavor – We love the taste of Mountain House entrees. They offer 22 of the most popular home-style dishes, including Beef Stroganoff, Spaghetti, Chicken a la King, and Beef Stew. You can read some customer reviews at the bottom of this post, or on our website BePrepared.com.

Storage benefits – Due to the freeze-drying process, the cans are lightweight and last 25 years (when properly stored).

Ease of preparation – Simply add hot water, wait 10 minutes, and enjoy. The meals have already been prepared, so they just need to be re-hydrated and warmed up.

We decided to prepare a few selections here at Emergency Essentials. We were impressed with the convenience of preparation, vibrant color, mouth-watering aroma, and of course, the delicious taste!

Here are some comments that have been posted on our website about these great Mountain House foods:

"This stew (
Beef Stew) makes great leftovers. It tastes homemade. We ladled this over egg noodles and feasted for days." Richard, OHIO

"I recently attended a meeting about Emergency Preparedness/Food storage... I brought a few different cans of Mountain House freeze-dried products to show and try. No one there had tried the freeze-dried products before... I made one can of the Chicken a la King and brought it into the room... Everyone was surprised at how good it was and how easy it was to make... This is a great product and you need to try this one. It will make a believer out of you." Kevin, CONNECTICUT

"This stuff (Beef Stroganoff with Noodles) is really pretty good. I was sorting my emergency food recently and had some pouches of this. I decided to try one, had never tried any of the MH cans I have. I ate the whole 2 person pouch it was so good... Very happy." Mia, TEXAS

"I have been stocking foods for emergency situations and trying some as I go. Granola and Blueberries with Milk is a great buy! I usually heat it up and eat it for a breakfast that really can't be beat! Taste great - no lie!!" Ron, OHIO

    I had some turkey tetrazzini the other day and this is actually some pretty good tasting food. Only had to add water - it didn't need anything else. Has anyone had the eggs or the chowder? I'm wondering how those turn out. Thanks.

    We just opened a can of Rice and Beef with onions 2 days ago. It is at least 25 years old. It was really good and we are still alive. Nice to know that this food can stand the test of time.

    I have tried the scrambled eggs with ham. It's pretty tasty but not all the water was absorbed. We poured some of it off. I think it might have been because it was one of the smaller pouches and the water may not have been as hot.
