Mountain House Breakfast Taste Test
Mountain House Freeze Dried food is one of the premier options when it comes to backpacking foods and is a good choice for emergency preparedness food as well. The food comes in easy to use pouches which are compact and light and allow for the meals to be heated in their own container which is great for making clean up quick and easy. It was time for a Gear Review.
I took the opportunity to taste some of my Mountain House stores during my normal rotation of stuff in my emergency kit. I choose to start with the breakfast foods I had Granola with Milk and Blueberries and Scrambled Eggs and Bacon.
First up was the Granola with Milk and Blueberries. This one easy to prepare as all it needed added was 4 oz. of cold water and to shake it around. This stuff was awesome! My wife ate the majority of this and she really liked it. I did get enough to know I wanted more. It was hard to tell that this stuff was even a freeze dried food in the first place. I could eat it for breakfast everyday without problem and it got the rare “2 Thumbs Up” from the wife.
Next up was the Scrambled Eggs and Bacon. This one needs a bit more prep as you need to add 8 oz. of hot water. I took that as a chance to test out a folding stove (read about my results here). I followed the directions and then it was time to eat. You can definitely tell that this stuff is long term storage food. It is overly salty and the bacon tests like warm soggyBaco’s. I think my wife summed it up by saying she could eat it, but wouldn’t be looking forward to it. With that beingsaidI do think the pro’s of this food out weighs it’s con’s but I don’t relish the thought of eating it.
