    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).

Wow! Awesome!

As I continue my trek in tasting all of the freeze dried entrees from Mountain House, the Mexican style chicken & rice entree was up next.<br><br><br><br>All I can say is wow! If someone had made this for me and simply put it onto a plate, I would have never known it was a freeze dried entree. That is how good it is.<br><br><br><br>It has a slight bit of kick/spice to it, which is fine as I do not like food that is "overly" spicy. However, if you like food that is really spicy, then this is probably not for you.<br><br><br><br>Not only would I recommend this, but this particular entree is now permanently part of the food storage pantry. It will be heavily stocked in my household.
