    This is a great product that is good even on any normal day. It tastes great for a quick meal and will keep for a year once opened too. Plus it has a ridiculously long shelf life too. This is a must have for any disaster preparedness storage. I also bought some of the single serving pouches too, as they are great to have for a quick meal. Then you dont have to finish the can in a year..not that thats a problem. I also bought some of the Saratoga farms mac and cheese, which is also good. This stuff tastes better than boxed stuff from the store too.

    I am a Mountain House fan and a mac and cheese fan. I made several attempts and even made some in a slow cooker (croc pot), but I never liked the taste or the texture of the pasta. I just can't recommend this flavor.
