  • I recently received this review from Deborah in Oklahoma. Thanks for sending it, Deborah! It’s always great to hear when we win over a teenager with food storage!

    (How about you? Are your kids fans of the food storage meals you've made? Or are you working to help them get over a food storage phobia?)

    My husband and I went on a 3 day camping trip with our 16 year old niece. I thought it would be an excellent time to field test some of our freeze dried foods from Emergency Essentials. I also wanted to get my niece Kayla's opinion. She has never eaten freeze dried food before so I was curious to see her reaction. We used our Emergency Essentials foods for breakfast each day.

    We made sausage & egg breakfast burritos with the freeze dried eggs & sausage crumbles. They were wonderful!!! The last morning of the trip, we had French Toast and Yoders canned bacon. I used the freeze dried egg & freeze dried milk powder reconstituted to dredge my bread in, then grilled it in a skillet. It was so good!! We used the Emergency Essentials milk pitcher to mix the milk and it worked beautifully!! The Yoders bacon was great!

    We really enjoyed all our Emergency Essentials food. Even our niece gave it a thumbs up. That’s saying something when you can impress a teenager! The Emergency Essentials food made the trip so much easier. I didn't have to worry about refrigeration for the eggs, milk and sausage. The food was delicious and easy to prepare. I highly recommend Emergency Essentials products!!

    Sincerely,

  • I just tried the Mountain House freeze dried cottage cheese and I'm in love. You heard me correctly. Mountain House freeze dries cottage cheese! It’s pretty impressive. 

    In the past, dehydrated and freeze dried milk products have gotten a bad rap. (Except Emergency Essentials' dehydrated milk products, of course. They get rave reviews.) So I set the bar really low for what I thought would be some freeze dried cottage cheese malarkey. 

    It’s no malarkey folks! Freeze dried cottage cheese is… well, good! 

    It’s easy to get excited about this Mountain House product. When the freeze dried cottage cheese is rehydrated it looks like cottage cheese (not some pulpy mess) and it feels like cottage cheese (not a glop of white stuff). 

    The texture and flavor are both spot on. Individual curds stand on their own and are firm and chewy, just like curds ought to be. The saltiness of cottage cheese comes through, too. I followed the instructions on the can; after 15 minutes I added a little more water because I like a little more liquid in my cottage cheese. 

    You might not have considered adding cottage cheese to your food storage because it seems like such a luxury item, but now you can! Plus, if you buy 6 or more cans of this freeze dried Mountain House food storage you’ll get 25% off your purchase (sale ends today). 

    Little Miss Muffet couldn’t be more pleased than I am. Now, if only I could find a tuffet to sit on…
