    I purchased the Vegetarian Meal pack as well. This Meal pack contained the exact same Breakfast, Desert and Lunch items. the only thing that was different was their 3 dinner packages that contained meat products/by products. So I'm giving it the same 3 star rating.
    I didn't expect gourmet food and for the convenience it worked well. Since freeze dried pre-packaged meals tend to be expensive, this is a good way to sample on a budget. Other than the breakfast meals & mashed potatoes everything else was good. Deserts were yummy... cheesecake and mouse was more like a thick pudding. Apple cobbler was just Yummy. LOL As for breakfast, I ended up donating my breakfast meals to other hikers (powdered milk tasted weird-plain granola would have been better). I would not purchase this package again. I would just purchase the meals that I liked. **To be fair, I don't like any other brand of "instant" mashed potatoes

    Freeze dried ice cream is always a hit with the nieces and nephews. Sadly I placed my ice cream order along with some bulky items and the ice cream was in no way protected from any of the other items. Most of the packages were reduced to crumbles, tasty crumbles nonetheless.
