As other reviewers have stated, the bag is rather deep for stirring and serving, partly as a consequence the food is not always fully hydrated, a longer soak time than indicated and good stirring helps more of the beans to soften but some of them will still be chewy, the seasoning may take a little getting used to and won't agree with everyone. With that being said, it is a pretty good meal for two whether camping or at home. My friend enjoyed it and a meal of Chili Macaroni while moose hunting, which also benefited from a longer soak time and additional stirring, and I shared some with my 17 year old son which I cooked on the stove with a little extra water, allowed to sit for 22 minutes, then adorned with buttered saltine crackers stacked around the edge of the bowls. We both thought that it was very good. If one doesn't like the amount of salt or other seasoning in the bag, it would not be difficult to sift some of it out to modify the flavor a bit. I have stored Mountain House, Alpine Aire, Wise and a few other brands of dried foods. While this product is not nitrogen purged nor has an added oxygen absorber for long term storage, it can have a substantial storage life if stored properly and I intend to re-package some of this to enhance that capability. Long story short; in a tough situation, this is a food that would be good to have around and I think that most complaints that folks have with this product can be mitigated or would melt away with hunger.

Bought 4 packages to share between 8 people out in Boundary Waters. While the meal was filling it was very salty and we were glad to have vanilla pudding for dessert to soak up the salt. If I bought it again I would make some plain rice to tame the flavor pack.

This flavor is awesome!! After a long day on the trail, this meal provides more flavor than many of the other dehydrated meals. If you are sensitive to salt though, this may not be for you as it is a bit salty.
There is no expiration date on the package what it does show is the date of manufacture. Which according to the vendor is good for 3 to 4 years after that and since it is a dehydrated product longer if not opened.
