Freeze Dried Foods along with Meals Ready to Eat (MREs) are very easy to transport in case of an emergency.  Canned foods tend to be a little more bulky and heavy than the Freeze Dried Foods and Meals Ready to Eat (MREs).
 
Quite often the Freeze Dried Foods and Meals Ready to Eat (MREs) are used for camping trips because they are lightweight and durable.  Freeze Dried Foods tend to have a longer shelf-life the Meals Ready to Eat (MREs), but MREs are by far the easiest to prepare.
 
In the case of an emergency, Freeze Dried Foods and some canned foods require rehydration with boiling water or heating.  Meals Ready to Eat (MREs) are precooked items that require no rehydratoin or heating; they can be eaten cold.  If you purchase the full meals, you actually get a water activated MRE heater that allows you to have a convenient hot meal virtually anywhere.
 
Several places to purchase preparedness food items include:
 
MRE (Meals Ready to Eat)
Food Ration Bars
Canned Food (meat, butter, cheese)
 
MRE (Meals Ready to Eat)
Food Ration Bars
Freeze Dried Food
Other Emergency Items

Just this morning we tried Mountain House's Scrambled eggs with Ham. It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The eggs were grainy, but I could definitely eat them if I had to. We bought 11 cans of various dehydrated foods because of the incredibly long shelf life. I also bought them for variety. I racked my brains trying to come up with enough variety from storing canned goods and couldn't do it. We have a freezer that is full, but if the power goes down we'll have to bury all of it. How long would you want to live off of soups, canned chicken and tuna, peanut butter, and canned fruits? How can you make a meal out of this stuff? This is lunch food and we bought dehydrated in order to have some meals. It's far better than starving. We have a couple more 2 person meals to try this week. I want to know what I'm in for ahead of time. We also have dehydrated mixed vegetables to add to stews. These taste much better than any veggies out of a can.

I am not saying Honeyville is the best...I don't remember
where their home base is...but they have what I need. At this stage we have no favorites. I also bought at Amazon.
the price was close, but the containers were smaller. However, I could not find the product elsewhere. I know money is important, but the end result of using the product you want tips the scale.

where would you say is the best place to buy powdered mash potatoes? I'm looking for good taste, good price and in a can. I don't like the boxes because bugs end up in them somehow unless the eggs were already in the box. that happened to me once and I haven't bought any since but if things got bad I'd hate to be without my potatoes:O)

Mountain home is the leading whole - out and away - for freeze dried survival and carry for several years. Mountain home is merely the simplest alternative for future food storage and emergency preparation, likewise as for alternative recreational activities like carry, hunting, camping, hiking, etc.
