I get tons of questions about so-called “survival” food. People want to know which brands taste best, which companies are most reputable, and what they should buy.
I own food from numerous different companies, from Mountain House to Honeyville to Augason Farms to Thrive, just to name a few, and I’ve noticed there is a difference.
First of all, Mountain House, along with Wise Foods and Food Insurance sell “just add water” entrees, almost exclusively. That is not my preference or recommendation except for enough to provide emergency meals in an evacuation or short-term power outage. What I have in my own pantry are individual ingredients, since this makes a whole lot more sense when it comes to healthier meals with a lot of variety.
Over the years I’ve purchased a lot of Thrive foods from Shelf Reliance and became a consultant with them because I like their products and have never been disappointed in their taste. I also own quite a bit of food from Honeyville, another good brand, and recently stocked up on dehydrated foods from Ready Reserve.
I’m interested in knowing what brands and specific foods you have actually tried and what your opinion is of them. How did the food(s) rate in terms of appearance, taste, and value? Tell us about your purchases and opinions in the comment section below.
