Here are three benefits that we see to taking freeze dried food on your vacation: 1 – The #10 cans are light. That means you can pack them and they won’t push your luggage over the weight limit. Unless of course you’re taking your Yeti with you just in case the Pirates of the Caribbean ride shuts down. (Like it did when I went in 7th grade. Sigh.) 2- Save on money. According to Grant’s calculations, even if his family ate on the cheaper end of the spectrum, like McDonalds’ Dollar Menu, they would still end up spending around $50. So, deciding to save their moolah for those cute little Mickey Mouse ears, they brought along Mountain House Mac n’ Cheese (regular price, $28.99) and Beef Stroganoff (regular price, $28.29). 3 - Save on time. Here’s what Grant had to say about it, At the end of a long day at Disneyland, we were tired, hungry, and some of us were a little cranky. The last thing you want to do is go Replace somewhere to eat that will make everyone happy. Great point, Grant. Thanks for the helpful travel trip! To prepare freeze-dried and dehydrated entrees all you have to do is boil water (which you can easily do in the coffee maker in your room), add it to the contents of your #10 can, and wait 10-15 minutes. You won’t have to suffer through clean up either since there won’t be any pots and pans to wash up! All Mountain House #10 cans are 20% off through March 21, 2013. If you buy six or more of the same item, we’ll give you 25% off! If you’ve used freeze-dried or dehydrated foods on your family vacation we want to hear about it! Comment below and let us know how you used your food storage.
My family traveled from SLC UT to Portland OR by car. We took Mountain House packets and a Kelly Cooker. We stopped at beautiful parks along the way and quickly made great meals that all four of us enjoyed, even in our motel room on the way. We spent less than half of the money that we had spent on previous trip regardless of the gas prices. And had a beautiful trip, thanks.
