When I started doing research for both food to take backpacking and also food that I can store in my pantry as an emergency back up food plan, there were quite a few options.
Of course we have all heard of Mountain House and even Wise Food Company. I have tried both of these and they are both good in their own right – but for me and my family, we prefer Food 4 Patriots from 4Patriots Survival Food (source: http://food4patriotsnow.com). It just tastes better to us, and we also like the message that it provides by supporting our veterans.
As you can see in the video above – I actually cooked and ate all three types of meals in the 72 hour kit – and both my family and myself really enjoyed both the ease of cooking and also the taste. I was expecting it to taste kind of like other dehydrated food – but this was much more juicy and flavorful than I was expecting.
In fact, I thought I would have to force my kids to eat it – instead I had to convince them not to eat it all at once! Yes it is that good. But don’t take my word on that – try it yourself.
