Mountain House Just In Case - Classic Assortment Bucket allows you to enjoy a delicious variety of hot meals anytime and anywhere.

Freeze-dried foods offer many advantages over dehydrated foods. The foods maintain 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 a shelf-stable product that lasts a very long time.

All the contents of a Mountain House pouch are freeze dried to allow for a shelf life of up to 30-years. Mountain House has also taste tested the pouches and at 25 years after the manufacture date and they still had the same great taste as the day it was freeze dried.

This is a very nice package in all. The food tastes good and its very easy to store as well. Would be a good idea to buy 5 or 6 of these and stack them on top of each other. Plus theres a little extra room in each bucket for extra pouches and storage.

These are great for families, just buy 1 for each person and then everyone has their own little cache of food for a short-term emergency. Buckets are reusable for other purposes, too.

These are great we have some and they are good to grab and go and have food if you need to and also you can try the products in a pouch before you purchase a #10 can.

#10 cans are ok for situations where you can setup a kitchen. However, I always liked the portability, size, and convenience of pouches. The problem with pouches was their shelf life compared to the #10 cans. Therefore, I had to rotate pouches by using them for camping. This product gives me great convenience AND great shelf life. I am switching my pouches to this storage format.

I have used Mountain House meals for my backpacking and camping adventures for several years. The Chili-Mac with Beef is by far my favorite. The Beef Stew and Chicken Teriyaki and rice is REALLY good too. I use an alcohol stove that will boil the amount of water I need in 3-5 minutes. Be sure to stir the water and food thoroughly before you seal the bag to let it rehydrate and heat. I keep all of my utensils, stove, and tea/coffee in my nesting MSR pots. I also keep a bit of italian seasoning with me. Adding a little bit of this to the pouch after "cooking" and stirring it in is delicious! I just ordered a 2-week lunch/dinner supply of the Saratoga Farms brand. We'll see what the difference is.

Bottom line, you'll be very happy with your Mountain House purchase!

This isn't the cheapest food storage option out there (when compared to other "bucket" options), but the taste is great and if I'm going to be "stuck" eating emergency rations, I'd rather eat this stuff as it tastes great!

These buckets will also easily stack on top of each other for easy storage.

Love the ready to go aspect of this product. It contains a decent variety of Mountain House meals and is packaged in a convenient bucket so you can grab and go. We store this next to our 72 hour packs. It has a 10 year shelf-life and the meals are delicious so we know we have a tasty, long-lasting bucket of meals for our family.

I just bought 4 of these for my adult children as Christmas gifts. After one of my daughters had to hurry to a store to stock up on three days supply of food during Super Storm Sandy, I decided they all need a supply on hand at all times. The shelf life of this product is a real selling point. PS..she did not lose power, just couldn't get anywhere for several days.
