Has anyone tried Valley Food Storage? Their food looks like it is exceptionally good, but to date the only freeze dried food that I have tried is Mountain House, and that's only been the shit they sell at Walmart.

However, Valley Food Storage is currently having a sale and they are offering an extra 15% off if you sign up for their e-mail list.

Is this good food?

I am totally for living the high life on White Bean Chili and Pasta Primavera will the my neighbors are fighting over sewer rats and possums.

UPDATE:

I went out to their website and ordered a free sample. They sent me a package of their Irish Pub Style Cheddar Potato Soup. I am eating it now, and it is pretty tasty. I had to boil water and cook it for a few minutes, as opposed to Mountain House where I just pour in the hot water and let it set. But, the taste and quality is immeasurably better than Mountain House. This is like a meal that I enjoy eating, as opposed to Mountain House, which I would I would categorize as "better than eating rats."

I am going to order some of this stuff.

No idea. I saw them on Amazon and checked out their website. The food looks much better than most of the other freeze dried stuff out there.

I hope you guys are looking at the ingredients as well as contents. Some places include drinks, cereals for breakfast and dessert. That's all filler material to up the # of servings.

I'm pretty sure there was commercial in the middle of the night on FOX News for a free sample pack. I can't remember the link though.

Save the freeze dried food for after the sewer rats and possums run out.

Good info though; I hadn't heard of them.

I ordered a free sample and was sent a pouch of pub style potato soup. It was decent in taste and texture. The potatoes had a bit of al-dente texture even after cooking but overall not too bad. I would have preferred they sent me more of a meal type dish since those are what I usually buy.

The packaging did leave a little to be desired because the information on the packaging was lacking and I could not find any sort of date on it which is useful for keeping stores of food... You kind of want to know how old it is.

I tried some Mountain House that I had in my get home bag for about 5 years. it was Beef Stew and it tasted just fine.

That is what got me interested in freeze dried foods for long term. I bought a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer several months ago and now have over 200# of meats freeze dried as well as a start on my chili and some fruits and vegetables.

Freeze Dried foods for long term make better sense than home canned for me.
