    My family was split about 50-50 on the Neopolitan ice cream and the Raspberry Crumble. While neither are as good as a homemade or store bought desserts, they both offer a treat with a long shelf life in an emergency situation. I would definitely keep these 2 items in a 72-hour kit to make the best of a bad situation. The Ready Store's recent article on comfort food in an emergency was very good. While desserts may not seem like an "essential" item, they can be more important than many of us think.

    I first tried these in my youth, I called it "astronaut ice cream." It was delicious then and it's delicious now! Great flavor and cheers you up while camping or in an emergency.

    I wanted to give my wife a special treat and I knew she never had freeze dried ice cream before (I did many years ago once). Although she doesn’t even care for strawberry or chocolate ice cream at all, she loved it. She was amazed how delicious all three flavors were when they were freeze dried.

    I have a few pouches of these to keep my boys satisfied during a SHTF scenario. Granted, I enjoy a good treat every now and again, but these are mainly for the kids. The price is a little high, but to have ice cream in an emergency (especially with screaming kids) would be priceless. Pick up a few pouches and see for yourself!

    Just the same as 25 years ago when I was a kid! Now today I had my own kids try it for the first time. These are great for the comfort foods that we need in distress, I agree. the vanilla could use a touch more flavor, but all in all pleasing in many ways. I just thought that this ice cream would be excellent for hiking and eating one during a break. Wont get a cold treat, but at least get it when you normally couldnt. I will be stocking these singles for the kiddies school lunches and also for our food storage. I will also get a #10 can for a party or for "that" day.

    I feel like this was like eating dense styrofoam and it didn't taste much better. Kid's love the novelty of it though, it's definitely worth it to brighten their day.

    This stuff gets weird and frothy when you are eating it because it's got this dry chalky taste, but I know that you need some sort of desserts during a situation so people feel better. This would be good for the kids, it's unique space type food, it'll distract for a little bit at least.

Don’t Waste Your Valuable Time There is no cooking or preparation necessary! Just open the package and enjoy. Get the Taste You're Accustomed To The freeze-drying process retains the fresh, delicious flavor of these entrees so you will enjoy eating them. Great For 72 Hour Kits Be prepared with your emergency food storage. Place a couple of these pouches in your 72 hour kits so you will have food covered for that rainy day. Versatile and Convenient The stand-up pouch doubles as cookware and a dish so there is little clean up. Enjoy these delicious treats anytime anywhere with this single serving Mountain House™ freeze-dried food pouch. Don't forget to treat yourself even during difficult times!

Mountain House™ freeze-dried foods are stellar when it comes quality and taste. Freeze-Dried foods offer many advantages over dehydrated foods. To begin with they taste much better because through the freeze-drying process the foods retain their taste, texture, and shape of fresh frozen foods. In addition, freeze-drying locks in the freshness, vitamins, nutrients, color, and aroma of fresh frozen foods while providing the shelf-stable convenience of canned and dehydrated foods.

All the contents of a Mountain House pouch are freeze dried to allow for a 10 year shelf life. Mountain House has also tested the pouches 30 years after the manufacture date and they were still good to eat and safe.
