Pouches--10 Year Shelf Life
Based on our ongoing sensory and nutrition testing of actual Mountain House products, in 2012 the shelf life was increased by an impressive 42%, from 7 years to 10 years! That’s right -- our shelf life is at least 10 years from the date of manufacture as long as the pouch is stored unopened in a cool area. After 10 years a change in flavor and appearance may be noticed. We have personally tasted pouches that were 30 years old and they still taste great. For best results, avoid prolonged storage at temperatures above 75° F (24° C).

Better than expected!
- My friend and I are on a mission of trying different types of freeze dried foods and MREs for long term food storage that is cost affective and has great taste.<br><br><br><br>It was my turn and I chose to try the Mountain House Beef Stew. <br><br><br><br>I was expecting it to have very little flavor and taste more like cardboard. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. It was full of flavor!<br><br><br><br>The portion size was great. I was able to get two meals out of 1 one pouch. Even though the package said 2.5 servings to the pouch ... 2 is more realistic.<br><br><br><br>It was easy to "cook". The instructions on the back are very simple and easy to follow. Between boiling the water, adding it to the pouch then waiting the 8 minutes while the pouch was sealed, the process was no more than 15 minutes tops, give or take a minute.<br><br><br><br>You won\'t be disappointed in Mountain House\'s Beef Stew.
