    Default Mountain House Meals - Your Favorites

    I have heard the technology and taste on the freeze dried meals has improved a great deal - I would be curious to learn which one of the meals people like best and if there are other brands that might be better than Mountain House?
    Is there a good source for these meals in Anchorage?

    Lasagna for me. But I am always so hungry that most all of them are pretty darn good.

    Default Packit Gourmet

    I have said it before. The Packit Gourmet stuff rocks.
    Bangers+ Mash with Vension sausage.
    Tortilla Soup
    Market Pasta Puttanesca
    Raimen Rescue for Raimen noodles.

    Mary Jane Farms meals are pretty good but spendy.

    MH- Pasta Primavera with Boar's Head sausage.
    Then Chili mac.
    Lasagna + added dehydrated mooseburger

    Sincerely,
    Thomas

    I have to agree that the breakfast ones need help although the one with eggs, ham and peppers is ok.

    Default i just about like em all

    i'm impressed with all the new flavors they came out with....i think my least favorite might be jamaican chicken..but its still good......i can tell you that they aren't good to eat if they have been stored in a barrel with a lantern that was still full of gasoline.....that was not a fun six mile hike

    Kinda' taste like Coleman fuel/white gas? Been there - done that - burped Coleman fuel for 3 days!!! Once was enough for a LONG lasting memory!

    Default Details?

    Shark and Sheephtr - I wanna make sure I don't enjoy the same fuel taste, care to provide more details on how it happened? Did the fuel spill, or was just being in proximity to the fuel enough to "flavor" the meals?

    Thanks,

    MD

    My wife says she will never go roughing it with me unless I bring along a couple hundred of those ice cream sandwiches.

    I took nothing but lasagna for suppers for 9 nights last year....taste was fine but it took awhile to to get used to the colour of the morning movement

    I think I'll take a few choices in this year

    Default Valuable Information - Thanks

    Sounds like Chili-Mac and Lasagna are two I will have to try out. I like seafood - so maybe that chowder deserves a try.
    Thanks to everyone for the info.

    Happy Hunting & Boating

    Default someone had the great idea

    this was a few years ago when they were in a plastic bag with a cardboard bottom inside a foil package.......some one got the great idea to take all the plastic pouches out of the foil and put them in ziploc bags....it was who ever the registered guide sent to set up the spike camp 4 years prior...they did that and didn't remove the fuel from the lantern/stoves so four years of evaporating fuel in a steel drum seeping through the plastic bags.....but when your hungry your hungry and that being my first year out at hunting camp....i was hungry.....i think i had 5 or 6 "movements" or about one per mile carrying half that spike camp back to the main camp....and like shphtr burping fuel the whole way.....good thing i'm not a smoker or i might have caused another forest fire out there...not that i caused the first one but it was only 8 years prior that area burned....it was just perfect for the moose......anyways...i'm not sure if fuel is able to penetrate the foil packaging that they are now in.....i'm glad they got rid of that stupid plastic pouch...that was a lot more trash and alot less user friendly when pouring boiling water....camp rule was whoever almost burned the client the most had to dig the new crapper hole at the end of the hunt
