I was considering buying a couple of these for our Camping trip next month. Thought I'd bring them out and surprise the Kids.
I'm a label reader, so when I saw that this was loaded with MSG (hidden) and GMO's...that pretty much did it for me!

Price was right and the reviews were better than average but I was disappointed.
The corn was cold after the recommended wait, the beef stew was bland and had an off putting consistency.
The pudding would not mix "until smooth" as per the directions.
I threw most of it away and will not try the second package I bought.

Went on our annual pop-pop, son and grandson trip this year and enjoyed this for lunch. Easy prep, mixed the beef stew and corn together with a dash of salt and pepper, and pudding was pretty tasty. Overall it was good enough for me to write my first review.

I got one package to try. The price was good and it seemed to be a good deal. I tried it as my Friday night meal because of my late arrival at my camp site. The first thing you should know: It requires you to use your own cookware and mess kit. I did everything in my insulated pack cup. The stew was better than average for a dehydrated prepackaged meal. Everything rehydrated acceptably, but it did take about 2 minutes longer than the instructions stated. The pudding required lots of mixing and was still a little lumpy, but the flavor is good. I saved the corn to add to a package of Top Ramen noodles that I had for lunch. I started rehydrating them with hot water about 20 minutes before adding the noodles and beef jerky to the soup.
Yes, I would buy this product again. For a quick meal it works well. As an added note, I rarely rate a dehydrated meal above 3 stars. They are just not that tasty and most have way too much salt.
