Good but needed some help

I tried the Chili Macaroni and out of the package it seemed bland to us. So, I added about 3 heaping teaspoons full of Honeyville powdered cheese item 792-337 and about 4 heaping teaspoons of Tomato powder item 792-347, mixed it in, and it seems better. It also seems to have a bit of an onion flavor, but that seems to be the case with most all chili mixes I have tried. I would use it out of the package while camping and hiking and it would be OK, but IMHO, it needed help and I had the ingredients on hand. Our resident food critic(youngest daughter)does not like the TVP in it (she called it fake meat), how did she know that is in it? Me and my wife thought it was fine.

I give them 5 stars for their intended purpose but I have to dock them one star because in my personal opinion the description is misleading in that this is an adequate food supply for an adult for 4 weeks.
For freeze dried foods they're perfectly edible and for the situation they're designed for they serve a valuable part of any disaster planning as an easy way to provide variety and avoid food fatigue.
At issue though is each pouch contains roughly 400-500 calories and you get two pouches a day. That's not even 1000 calories a day or less than half the RDA.
Assuming you're not doing any work and are sitting waiting for rescue in a disaster that's fine. But don't assume you're going to be active for a month on under a 1000 calories a day unless you have a LOT of stored calories in your body (i.e. high body fat percentage).

I've tried Creamy pasta and vegetable rotini and Chili Macaroni. It tasted good for freeze dried food. My point view is, that if I' m hungry or starving it will taste like Filet mignon. If you are looking for super healthy food this had 210 calories per 1 cup serving size and 2 servings per bag. I not worried about calories or trans fats in a disaster situation, it's about surviving. I will buy more.
1) Get a sample pack from the web site, use VERY HOT water and remember to stir because if you don't some food will get cooked and the other parts won't.
2) Decide for yourself if you like it.
3) What ever you decide, get some disaster supplies.

Adequate....but not healthy

I am usually very pleased with Honeyville products and am a repeat customer; however,I was disappointed to see the large amounts of trans fat in these things when they arrived. That information was not available on-line when ordering. I won't buy these again.
good nutrition + long term storage

we reordered (again) because we are happy with durable and safe packaging. shipping is a bargain, and these reuseable buckets last for years. those finding themselves without food for a couple days, or those that have had to eat found scraps during a long emergency would not complain if and when the time comes for these emergency foods. Thank you for having these available, we appreciate your company that cares about people.
