    Let's face it. These meals have improved dramatically over the years. People used to cringe when they heard "dehydrated meals". Every one of these meals is good. Some of them are great and it is true that some are not but for the money and weight savings, you cannot go wrong. Plus, everything tastes better when you are backpacking. It is really nice to clean out the resealable foil pouches and use them again for dehydrated soup mixes and oatmeal. All of your trash packs down to almost nothing and can be reused if you are diligent.

    Our family doesn't backpack so I can't speak to how well these would work for backpacking. Got these to follow a friend's system of keeping some on hand for the emergency/earthquake food supply and then using the ones close to expiring for camping trips. So far we've tried the lasagna (a bit salty - helps to have some plain boiled pasta to mix it with to dilute out the saltiness), wild west chili with beans (WAY too salty even with extra added rice, couldn't finish it), sicilian mixed vegetables (also a bit too salty, okay if you mix it in with some plain lettuce), vegetable medley (again mixed with some lettuce, kids liked it but hubby thought the 'buttery sauce' tasted a bit odd), huevos rancheros (best to roll up in tortillas, maybe add a bit of fresh tomato or salsa if you have it). Desserts were pretty decent for a just-add-water thing (the cobbler takes a little more work, needs to be cooked in a pot)-and one package split between the 4 members of our family was enough for a little-bit-of-sweets after dinner.

    Everything tastes better in the wilderness! These are all pretty tasty, except for the Denver omelet, which could use a little more seasoning. The curry was a little spicy and pretty delicious. Easy to prepare a hot dinner after a day of hiking.
