Mountain House Pouches. Pack light. Eat right. With the easy-to-prepare stand up, zipper pouch, it's never been easier to make a great tasting meal! Simply open, pour in boiling water, and zip. Then eat right out of the pouch. The pouches have a shelf life of at least 7 years from the date of manufacture as long as the pouch is stored unopened in a cool area.
Smooth custard with apple pieces.
Serves 1 – providing a nutritionally balanced meal for one adult.
Freeze dried foods are not as tasty as freshly prepared stuff so structure your expectations! Having said that Mountain House seem to be one of the best - from reviews and personal experience - and after a day on the hill the satisfaction bar is lowered somewhat.
On a long trip I'd take these meals for perhaps one third to half of my meal requirements providing the rest from non-freeze dried products - especially local and fresh stuff. Combining in this way balances the need for 'real' food with the need for keeping your pack weight down.
Long dates on Mountain House as well - so if you don't eat everything on your next trip there's always the one after.

|7.5||MARK'S TASTE TEST - Tasted quite good but not really like custard. Apple reconstituted fine but some of the custard didn't reconstitute despite contientious stirring. Also the mix tended to stick to the spoon in a globule, which was a bit tricky.|
