The cherry ones are fantastic.

They taste almost exactly like the sour cherry pie that my Grandmother used to make.

Now THIS I can agree with. Those were always tasty. (I might have to go get some, I think it's been 15+ years since I've had one.)

 undecided What? Back when grunts were grunts, we had chocolate-covered oatmeal bars, and slabs of dehydrated strawberry. (Which were both awesome.)

Back when grunts were really grunts, we had dried out, stale chocolate bars that came foil-wrapped in a can.  Tasted like dried chocolate mud, and we were glad to have them.

Speaking of nasty MREs, my first one was a dehydrated pork patty.  And I didn't have any hot water to re-hydrate it.  It was like eating a crunchy cobweb.

The pork patty was called, among other things, Satan's Hockey Puck by people I know who ate it.

I didn't think it was too horrible, but it wasn't good.

Back to the subject of food...
It's been a couple of decades or more since I've partaken of freeze dried camping foods.
I'm taking a week at the end of the month and plan on some camping in less.than remote areas, drive up campsite is the plan. While I  could drag out and prep my ancient camp kitchen stuff and do real camp cooking I'm going to be alone and the main objective is photography and not so much camping per se.
I'm thinking about loading up on some Mountain House stuff just for the simplicity.
I kind of liked the stuff from 30ish years ago but has it improved any? And for.those that use it.or similar, what's good?

The MH biscuits and gravy is quite tasty. Otherwise I don't have any standouts. I grabbed a big variety pack a couple of years ago when Costco had them for cheap and have been using them when I do my overnight "trout assault" trips when I pack in light for a quick overnight to be on an alpine lake first thing. I've not eaten any dinners that I don't like, but generally find them "meh". I just don't care in the circumstances where I use them. Smiley

IMO, the packaged meals are kinda spendy for what you get. I've been taking cues from the backpacking crowd and getting the dehydrated pouches for motorcycle/kayak/backpacking trips. Idahoan mashed potatoes (5 for $4) are good, Knorr rice/pasta sides ($1ea), Salmon/Tuna/Chicken, etc. in the pouches. Canned works too if the extra weight isn't a problem. All relatively cheap and available at Mal-Wart. You can also dehydrate fruit and [urlhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ptx6MKzaB-8]ground beef[/url]

The little girl and i like the biscuits and gravy when we go camping. Since we do most of our camping at the cabin we go for canned food or the dry packages of like chicken and rice or beef stroganoff you can get at the store for a dollar. We fill out our food ith some fresh fish she catches or the mammal dumb enough to get in front of the gun.

Tried a couple. Mountain House, Breakfast Skillet and Bisquits and Gravy. Both were pretty good,  the Breakfast Skillet was some lacking in visual appeal but tasted good.  I'll pick up a few for my trip.

She liked the breakfast skillet at the start and then hit a texture she didn't like. So she won't do the egg meals anymore.
