  1. Which food supply company would you recommend that uses Mylar pouches? I would hate to open a years worth of cans and try and put them in zip lock or vacuum sealed bags to keep the shelf life of the product. If it’s already packaged in mylar, then efficiency is better because you’re only getting that one pouch for that one meal. Thank you for your truthful reviews and not bending towards the big wigs.

    • Really depends on what you are looking for. If you’re looking for meals in mylar pouches no doubt Mountain House is the best in terms of taste and quality but they are more expensive. Wise Foods is on the lower end of quality/taste but are cheaper and then there are bad products like Chef’s Banquet (found in Costco under the ARK series) and Food For Health which also makes bad tasting meals for cheap. Those items are more cook on your stove top…. if you dont care about quality then those are decent places to start. EasyPrep is a good middle ground that is instant like Mountain House but less expensive.
