    How are the astronauts supposed to replenish their ice cream supply if it can only be shipped in the U.S.?

    Use your common sense with any food product. Supplement with a it of fruit or sprouts. Always try these products at home. Educate yourself.

    A bit of honey here, a slice of apple there, throw in a bit of fresh green ground plants.....

    Don't blindly follow a review or some blog.

    The brand quality is good but there are two major issues. First, the expiration dates on each package vary but all are within a year. That makes these useless for your emergency food shelves / kits, and instead only camping and only in the short-term. Second, out of the 18 packages in the box, only 1 was fully vacuum sealed. The contents of all 17 others were loose fill and not vacuum packed as they should have been (think vaccum packed 1 pound coffee bags). It's too bad given the sweet deal on these but are misrepresented.

    Used this as a learning tool for my grand children. I told then about the space race the importance and i used the ice cream and tang to help bring the lesson to life.

    My boyfriend and I keep these in our pantry and just grab a few whenever we go do something outdoorsy. We're much more likely to go backpacking or camping when we don't have to worry about meal planning and grocery shopping. We can pack a bunch of them into our bear canister or bear bag. The ones we've had so far taste great. I'm grateful there's a vegetarian box available! That's super convenient. Considering each packet is usually about $8 individually, this is an incredible price and I need to buy more.

    We bought a number of these packages in order to be able to go backpacking at a moments notice. My wife has celiac, and so we purchased some other gluten-free packages to supplement this,
    We took this package on a recent three day trip, and we were pleasantly surprised by the variety and tastiness. Even though dehydrated will never truly compare to fresh food, the convenience factor is amazing. The desserts are great (and since things like crust are in separate packages, even my wife could share... darn). The entrees are all very satisfying. The packages are supposed to be for two people - and most of them are adequate portions, though I was disappointing in some of the vegetable packages (very small), but overall, we are pleased. I would still recommend that this package be supplemented with snacks, dehydrated/freeze dried fruit, etc., but you can't go wrong with this package - particularly when they are on sale!

    This kept me perfectly fed on my 4 day, 3 night backpacking trek. The lasagna was the best dinner. The dinners with rice need a fair amount of time to rehydrate, as does the huevos rancheros because it has beans. Just be sure to read the instructions carefully, as some items are cooked in a pot, and with others you can just add hot water to the bag. This was very convenient at times when we were cold and exhausted and didn't want to do dishes. The deserts were a nice treat, especially the apple cobbler and the cheesecake. This saved me all of the trouble of having to come up with and shop for the menu. I shared with my boyfriend, and he brought a few additional things since he is not a vegetarian and we had more than enough.

    To call this a 3 day pack is putting the receiver on starvation rations. This wouldn't even feed a one soldier for 2 days.
