Mountain House Food: Survival Food Pack and Buckets

Mountain House Emergency Food Packs

The majority of the weight in a well-prepared, prepper bug-out bag should consist of survival food packs like those made by Mountain House Foods. As a prepper you should know, and have prepared your bug-out bag with gear to get fresh water and realise that gear doesn't use much space. But close second is survival food. You can always pack weapons, traps and fishing equipment to get food by hunting and/or fishing but "if" during a survival situation everyone is doing the same you may find slim pickings. That is why your bug-out bag should be loaded with as many survival foods as you can carry.


Mountain House makes great emergency food packs and buckets ideal for bug-out bags, 72 hour kits and long-term storage. This brand is another alterative to the popular Wise Company Foods emergency food buckets. Slightly less expensive, and with a 12 year shelf life, you can save some money on your survival food rations store long-term until the SHTF.

You'll also be happy to know that it comes with a resealable foil pouch that helps retain the heat, ensuring that your meals are nice and hot when they're done mixing in with the hot water.


The shelf life on the Mountain House Just In Case emergency food supplies is 10 years, which isn't as long as the Wise Company emergency food preparation buckets, but still long enough to make it worth the purchase.


According to the Amazon reviews, these emergency preparation meals taste very good, and some people have been known to dig into the supply even before an emergency strikes because they're so tasty. When compared to other emergency food supplies, it's the more favored meal option in terms of overall taste, nutrition, and quality.

For camping and emergency supplies, especially when you're on-the-go, you can't do better than Mountain House.

"Bottom line is, Mountain House is the best tasting emergency/bag food I've had in my 18 plus years in the service."
