  • Mountain Home food

    Kewl Beens! Wal-Mart carries Mountain Home brand freeze dried food. I was in there buying some ammo, which is the only thing I buy there since I despise there business practices. I might have two items I buy there now though.

              I choose not to do business with WM for ethical reasons, but...

              I've looked everywhere and the best deals on MH foods are at Vitacost.com. I've found eBay sellers selling the 72 hour and 1-week food kits for TWICE what Vitacost has them for!

              I have no financial relationship with Vitacost, I am just a satisfied customer!

                that is the best price I've seen on MH, even from mountainhouse.com. thanks!

                And, from the Mountain House FAQ page:
                Does Mountain House use ingredients from China?
                Mountain House purchases hundreds of ingredients from all over the world. Out of the hundreds of ingredients we use, there are only 4 ingredients from China. These 4 ingredients are used in the following flavors: Spicy Oriental, Chicken Teriyaki, Beef Teriyaki, Chicken Ala King* (Note - On the Chicken Ala King we are in the process of changing the only China ingredient in this item to a supplier in the USA).

                  I can't find any Mountain Home foods at Vitacost. Got a link?

                        Fellow Survivalists,

                        I would eat Mountain House if it were the only thing on the shelves, but it is very pricey. One had might as well take along a butler with a silver dish holding Grey Poupon on a bug-out.

                        :D

                        I believe it was Big Saw who had the right idea about MRE-type foods: Buy the components you like in bulk from regular grocery shelves, not the camping aisle, and then make your own MREs. A home vacuum sealer can help extend shelf life, however, if the homemade MREs are comprised of items you use on a regular basis, you can rotate them and you don't need a super-long shelf life.

                          I know people that prefer MH over MRE's. I personally like most MRE meals.

                              I agree with the unbound one...I don't buy any MREs, I don't buy the Mountain House entrees.
                              I stock pasta and grains, etc; and I plan on canning and dehydrating my own fruits and veggies that I grow.
                              I do like the Mountain House cans of meat for emergency... that's one item I can foresee being hard to get in an emergency around here.

                              And who sells the butlers with grey poupon? I want one of those!
