The quest for the BEST tasting, Freeze-Dried survival food has begun!
If you’re like me, and you are thinking of getting Freeze Dried survival food for your family, because it has a shelf life of 25+ years, giving you much more food security than canning chicken or homemade chilis & stews would give you…
But you don’t feel like dropping several grand on food if its going to taste horrible, then…
Welcome to the Best Freeze Dried Food “Taste Testing Tournament”!
Yes, I said Tournament, because…
Each week I will be bringing two rival Freeze Dried food companies food together for a faceoff; where we will cook up both companies foods, and then rate them with my handpicked panel of ‘Picky-Eater’ Judges.
Meet your Judging Panel:
These are my three BEST kids 😉
I actually have four, but the fourth didn’t qualify as she is still known to stick her hand down into her dirty diaper and then proceed to suck her thumb…
So she was Disqualified from this Taste-Testing panel 😉
Plus, we also thought it might be a good idea to have two adults on the Panel just to keep things from getting too out of hand. So my wife, Sally, and I will also weigh in on each of the foods.
Here’s how the Face-Offs will Go Down
Step #1: Each Judge will taste test one bite of each food.
Step #2: They’ll declare which one was better (they have to pick one)
Step #3: Then they rate each food INDIVIDUALLY (so if both foods are bad, but one was less bad YOU are appropriately warned)
Step #4: We tally up the votes between all 5 Judges and declare the winner of that round.
Obviously there’s a lot of different types of foods out there.
You can’t go comparing Freeze Dried Oatmeal, to Freeze Dried Beef.
Every Freeze Dried FACE-OFF is set up in it’s own category of food
These were picked by YOU, my readers, and submitted as requests for the TYPES of Freeze Dried food you were most interested in eating.
With the most popular request being to try and find the best Freeze dried Beef Stroganoff.
So we went out and found all the Freeze dried Beef Stroganoff we could, where they’ll face off in a winner takes all tournament, until there’s no more Freeze Dried Beef manufacturers out there to taste test, and we have our winner!
So introducing the first two contestants:
Auguson Farms Vs.
Wise Food’s Freeze Dried Beef Stroganoff
Watch the video to see who wins round one!
Now originally I was thinking I might just keep testing Freeze-Dried Beef Stroganoff companies until I’d found the best… that would certainly be the FASTEST way to get you the answer of which is the best freeze dried food. However… it’s pretty rough on my wife and I to eat the same type of meal over and over, so we’re going to mix it up and bring you a different category of food for Round Two Of This Taste Testing Tournament.
I simply had to mix this up or it was going to kill me 😉
So next up we’re going to see if ANYONE can knock off the Fan Favorite…
Next Up: “Mountain House’s, Chili Mac”.
But then everyone thought Cam Newton was going to win last year’s Super Bowl too 😉
So for our next round we’re going to see if we can knock off that Fan Favorite and find that little known underdog that tastes better (and is hopefully CHEAPER than Mountain House)
So Stay Tuned For That Matchup!
But in the meantime…
What Type of Freeze Dried Food Do You Want Me To Taste Test Next?
If you’re really curious about which types of freeze dried food taste better, then leave me a comment below to tell me which one you want me to test next.
Then… I’ll do my best to taste test the categories you want most in my next Face-Off. And don’t forget, survival food is about more then just taste, it’s about keeping your body healthy. So I always like to remind you that the best survival foods, (the ones with the most nutrition) are the foods you grow yourself!
That’s all for today…
Until next time, stay safe out there!
