Official Preparation Instructions

  1. Add 8-16 (check package) ounces of hot water (~⅓ canteen cup) to pouch
  2. Stir, wait ~5-10 minutes until fully rehydrated
  3. Hot water can be added in stages to keep food hot.

Recommended Best Practices

  • Meals should be fully hydrated per the official instructions, and left to fully absorb the water.
  • Eating too fast can mess with your mood, your metabolism, and your digestive system. Pace yourself and eat at a normal speed.
  • Rehydrating the meal just means that the meal is rehydrated. You are still in charge of hydrating yourself. Make sure to drink adequate water.
  • Minimize exposure to direct sunlight and temperatures above 75°F to maximize shelf life. Like most things, if stored in a dry cool place it will last longer. Proprietary Mountain House packaging preserves flavor until 2029, and viable calories beyond that.

I dont like eggs yet I bought the breakfast one

Ok hear me out, Im stupid alright?

I bought the egg omelet one when I hate eggs. Overall the food was pretty tasty, but the texture is what made it hard for me to finish. Smelled better than it tasted.

Tastes: 4/5 (sausage was good, eggs lacked flavour)

Texture: 2/5

Smell: 4/5

MCW LR Patrol Rations

They're compact and lightweight. Not much else I could ask for. I haven't eaten any but if the pictures and descriptions are anything to go by (and the fact that they're made by Mountain House), I'm sure they'll be great.
