Quick and Easy, decent taste.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Macaroni doesn't quite hydrate as others have mentioned, but it is just fine for the outdoors in my opinion. I'd say it is better in flavor than most of your freeze dried backpacking foods. I think few ounces less water than directed is best.

Ze macaroni is, how you say, a leedle bit...firm.

*cough* It's possible that I didn't allow enough extra time to rehydrate the pasta...or even the allotted time. I was hungry.

However, it's been my experience with Mountain House that while other types of noodles rehydrate well (lasagne bits, whatever is in pasta primavera) their elbow macaroni tends to stay tough.

Some Mountain House meals, you can get the water just barely boiling and the meal will turn out fine. With the macaroni variants, I'd get a ROILING boil and plan on doubling the time - if you can stand it, I can never wait :)

As always with Mountain House, short the water! Never put the full amount in a dehydrated meal, you can always put more in later. It's like coffee, dial back the water and make some black, sludgy, spine-stiffening COFFEE - the wusses can add water and make their tepid cup of sadness.

But hey, this is all about the taste, right? Tastes pretty damned good. I'd say MH Mac n' Cheese is more like Velveeta than it is Kraft, it's less tangy/sharp than Velveeta. It's hot and creamy and a little bland.

Reach for Mac n' Cheese on the trail when you're feeling creative, this pouch cries out for customization. I'm gonna throw in some Knorr or MH vegetables next time, or maybe add some MH fajita filling for a 2-3 person meal.

Bland but filling and lots of protein

    I usually try and do physically demanding hikes that require a lot of protein in order to recover properly for the next day. That said, I bought the mac and cheese solely because it has 20 grams of protein per serving and was planning on eating the whole meal anyway (which is usual for me) It was good and filling but like others have said it's a little bland. Bring some salt, paprika,etc or like a previous reviewer said mix it with another mountain house that's packed with flavor like buffalo chicken.

    Good overall

      This is some pretty decent Mac n cheese. It's a classic meal, but I think it was jut a tad bland for my taste buds. Bring a little seasoning packet along and you're set.

      Good... But my expectations were higher.

        I'm going to give this 5 stars, because it was good and filling, but there was still something lacking... I can't quite put my finger on it.

        Be sure to use a little less water than the recipie calls for, or you'll end up with soup.

        Feel like a kid again

          Eating a plate full of mac and cheese makes me feel like I'm getting away with something. This hit the spot just don't know if I could classify it as a meal like I did when I was young

          backpacking food favorite!

            So I mix this with the buffalo chicken wrap meal

            This meal is quick, easy, and delicious. The mac is a little "plain" on its own, but the buffalo chicken livens it up. Mixing with the mac & cheese makes the chicken a meal without having to tote the tortillas.

                Really filling for one person (I almost couldn't finish it) and pretty tasty. However, like others have stated, let it cook longer than it says if you don't like a few partially crunchy noodles.

                tasty, but macaroni not fully hydrated

                  Had this on a 3 day backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada. It would've been great if the Macaroni had cooked all the way through, but I was left with macaroni that was soft on the outside and hard on the inside. Totally edible, and better than a lot of other freeze dried meals I've had, but not amazing. I waited an extra 10 minutes trying to get the macaroni to fully hydrate, but to no avail. I'd be willing to try again and hope that it cooks the next time.

                  tasty, but macaroni not fully hydrated
