So shrimpy, so tasty.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I only recently started taking Mountain House meals with me into the field but I've been really pleased with everything I've tried. Full disclosure: I've never eaten a Mountain House in the comfort of my own home; I've always consumed them out on the trail where I tend to be ravenous and everything tastes WAY better.
Everything rehydrates nicely, no chewy or hard bits. I never put the full amount of water in a MH, always short it by 1/4-1/2 a cup and it seems to work out well. I add water, stir, add a bit more water, then seal the bag as per instructions. I agitate the bag a few times during the wait.
Holy Shrimp, this stuff is tasty! There's a lot of meat in here folks. The shrimp are tiny but plentiful - about 1/2" across, the size of canned shrimp. The ham cubes are even smaller than the shrimp but there are more of them. The whole dish tastes pretty shrimpy so if you aren't a seafood lover, I'd steer clear. I was impressed with the rice, it wasn't al dente nor was it mushy. I enjoyed it enough to buy it again for an upcoming trip and I bet it's the meal I'll eat first - Very Tasty!
Not too shabby...

It is alright. Nothing gourmet but makes a decent meal. If you want something to mix up your backcountry meals this would do it.
