If you’d like to know what the best tasting Emergency Survival Foods are, and are worth investing in, or you’d like to know which ones taste the worst, then watch this video below, and let me know which ones you’d like me to taste test.

I’ve got a family of 6… who’d be happy to be your guinea pigs and help you weed out the nasty stuff so you don’t waste your money on garbage.

    I’d like to see you do a taste test on similar foods from different companies. Food4patriots, Wise, Mountain House, and any others that you can find? That’s about the only way I know of to be fair to everyone, and every company involved.

      Yep, that’s what I wanted. Maybe I wasn’t clear enough about that in the video. But yeah, comparing like foods from different companies is what I’m planning on doing. So far people want me to test Chili Mac, Lasagna, Milk, Ketchup. So if you’d like to vote for another one, let me know!

      My kids will be the perfect one for a Milk test, I’ll be very curious to see what they think. I can get used to just about any milk given a few days, but kiddos are different.

    I tried Patriots 4 Health, Legacy, Wise. Can honestly tell you there will be no more purchased from any of the above. Taste is blan to worse.

    There are some tree barks that can be boiled in cheese cloth/tee-shirts to hold the bits that clog teeth, and the broth can be eaten as soup or had as a tea.

    I hope this was helpful.

    I would like to see your family try Valley Food Storage and North Bay Trading Company. I search for foods for my family that are non GMO and organic where possible. North Bay carries fruits and veggies but not meals. I’ve purchased some of their product but haven’t tried much of it. Good luck. The munchkins always tell the truth when it comes to food.

    The variety doesn’t matter as much as the brand to me. I would like for you to try Mountain House, Wise, and Emergency Essentials varieties. I hear that Wise is the best but the only one so far that I have tried was Mountain House. Let’s just say it was acceptable, but not as good as home made by far…It was Chili Mac that I tried. Lasagna would also be a good one…Thanks…

    Hi

    If they are available in America could you try Back Country and/or Out Door Gourmet.
    And maybe you could comment on the ingredients and additives if you can.

    I assume they’re worldwide but I’m in Australia.

    Hi: How about either Emergency Essentials or Mountain House Chili Mac. I have bought some but haven’t opened any of them because they are such large containers. I guess I would like to see if I should be buying a different brand. Also, I should probably can some homemade ketchup since most of the food will need a little “help” 😉

    • Chet Says:

      Nice idea, I like the idea of testing the ketchup good thinking. And I’ll put Chili Mac on the list.

    I have tried the Patriot Pantry food and they taste pretty good to my son and I. You can order them from mypatriotsupply.com. There was one that I didn’t really care for called Travellers Stew, but all the others we have tried have been pretty good. We have had four of the other meals and my son (picky eater) and I have enjoyed the others. Granted we have not tried them all but the four or five we have tried were good. I even did a review of one of the meals on my YouTube channel, the No Budget Homestead. So I would recommend them for a try!

    You should sample food from my patriot supply, and I think a lot of people would be interested in a comparison of ingredients as well, mainly looking out for things like Gmo’s, corn syurp, and dies.

    We like LegacyFoodStorage.com
    Non GMO and organic
    They taste great and can be used alone or as a base to add some squirrel or venison from the fall hunting season. Give them a try and see how they rate.

    I’d love for you to taste test freeze dried meat from different companies… like the beef chunks, chicken, ham and ground beef. This way we know which ones actually taste good and not like cardboard, before spending so much money for them! :-)

      I’m glad you brought it up. It was certainly something I wanted to taste test, but hadn’t heard anyone else ask for it before you. Thanks for chiming in :-)

    As far as I can tell, the best value going right now is “My Patriot Supply,”
    http://www.mypatriotsupply.com/
    I use this food in all my bug-out kits.
    Another great contender is “Augason Farms,”
    http://www.augasonfarms.com/

    Taste is important, but I also urge you to consider calorie count…1800-2000 calories per person per day is required for most of us. All of the larger companies offer meal packages for 3-day, 7-day, 60-day, etc. food supply. Do the math. Total up the calories (ignore number of servings because that is very deceiving) and calculate the exact number of calories each company’s offerings are giving you per person per day. I think you will find almost every company, except Augason Farms falls significantly short in giving you the minimum number of calories you require.

    Is there any sandwich ones ? Would be good to go if they any good. How about BLTs?, casserole dish?, potato scalloped?… I’ve got some already but thinking of other items to add?!?!?!?

      I’ll have to look when I start ordering some of this stuff. I doubt it on sandwhiches… unless you want to make the bread from scratch, which is a little more then I was thinking for this taste test. But I’ll look for some casserole or potato stuff for you.

    I would really like the calorie count per portion or serving, and the amount of protein in a daily serving from each major company. Especially to find out how different companies add their servings up to equal a daily calorie count of at least 1800 calories/day (chopping wood, or nursing a baby etc would require much more calories up to 3600). It seems many companies daily servings do not add up to even minimum calories. Otherwise a years supply of food may actually work out to 6 months or less, actually. And most people dont realize this calorie and protein shortage or cant find the information to determine it. Food For Patriots is especially difficult to find.
    Thanks.

    Hi Chet,
    Would you please taste test a pasta/meat product, some fruit, and some vegetable from Mt.House, Auguson Farms, MRE, and My Patriot Supply. Could you also note how many servings the package says it contains vs how many realistic servings you actually get. A lot of these companies will offer a one person 3 day food supply but when you look at it closely, a single pouch might count as 2 servings. I know for a fact that if my mother made a 2 serving pouch and only ate 1 serving, with no way to refrigerate the rest, she would throw it out. Thanks for doing this.

    I got the Food 4 patriots 73 hour pact to stick in my BOB. The price was right…just shipping, but don’t want to gag when the SHTF. They put potato soup, travelers stew, potato cheddar soup, and creamy chicken rice in the pack. Lots of carbs ! I could eat any of them. If bland, just put in some salt,etc. I also saw some beef stroganoff some where, which I really like, but would be curious how it tasted. I think it is from Mountain House.

    Wow, where to begin? I would be grateful if you could try out some of the higher $$ items like freeze-dried meats & cheeses. I’m finding it hard to spend $40-$50 for a #10 can without having an idea of whether or not it’s any good. I can tell you I’ve tried the freeze-dried shredded cheese from Thrive & it is delicious!

    I figure most anyone’s freeze-dried or dehydrated fruits & veggies are gonna be okay. Kinda hard to mess up plain ol’ fruits & veggies.

    Personally I’d like a comparison of milk brands. I don’t know what I’d do without milk… shudder!

    Perhaps pick each of the following to compare from different companies:
    * a breakfast item (scrambled eggs or a breakfast casserole type thing)
    * a soup (chili, potato or veggie)
    * an entrée or two (something chicken & something beef)
    * a dessert (brownies or cobbler)

    My experiences with the following companies…
    * Thrive ~ Their stuff is yummy.
    * My Patriot Supply/Patriot Pantry ~ We’ve enjoyed everything so far but their Travelers Stew & that just might be because we don’t like lentils.
    * Mountain House ~ easy to use & decent taste.

    We’ve bought items from Emergency Essentials, Auguson & LDS/Family Home Storage but haven’t tried them yet.

    Augason Farms, any entree. Jim Bakker Show says they’re the best. Some of the soups are really good.

    Costco warehouse offers some called “Thrive” and also “ARK”. I’d like you to try any of their meals BUT the meat products are actually meat flavored SOY products in ‘Thrive’. SOY might be okay on occasion, but for frequent meals I know it can cause some health issues such as males to grow breasts, and allergies to soy can develop. The ‘ARK’ comes in 4 person 72 hour food kits, that come in buckets.

    I bought a years supply of Thrive for long term storage before reading about the soy protein issues. Having a vegetarian in the family, I’ll be sending those containers over to her for consumption.
