I've got 3 or 4 Chili Macs that I will trade for anything, even breakfasts!

I am always hoping for new MH meals.  Eating so much of it eventually its all a grind.  I stray to Bacpackers Pantry occasionally however those are hit and miss with some options just not acceptable imo.

When I was in high school and college I didn’t have any money for mountain houses, lived on oats and dried cranberry’s with discount protein bars thrown in. I’ll never get tired of mountain houses now!

This looks like something to mix it up a little. Getting some of this to try this year.

Heather's Choice gets great reviews.  The meal options are a bit foreign to me but those who review them rave.

MRE are so much better. I can't stand all the spices they put in the mtnhouse.  And it takes to much water for backpacking
have you tried OMeals? they are what I've used the last 2 years. just a couple ounces of water and self heating like a MRE.

Aren't those MRE's heavy in comparison or am I just basing that off older style MRE's?

They’re much heavier than freeze dried meals.

It wouldn't be an every day thing for me either, but once in a while or maybe the cookies- they get excellent reviews. A week of mountain house=gross. A week of MRE's after eating them off and on for 20 years=grosser than gross.

Guys, meals are “meals” designed for camp at the end of a long day (not really to have a sit down feast in the middle of the hunting day, yes?).  Take a look at this. https://paleomealstogo.com  I mix up some of these with some of my favorite MH Meals, BP Pantry meals, after a long day stomping the elk woods on my backcountry adventures....well, as long as I’m able to pack my camp in at my age ;).

Those look good. My only comment would be yes they're fuel but they are also morale boosters or if you're eating MRE's, they're morale busters.

I take them for lunch, don't weight squat, heat with 2-3 oz water in the bag, comes with silverware napkins and salt pepper. everything fits in the outter bag when your done to pack out.  sportco finally started carrying a few of them.  I sometimes have the mountain house at camp where my jetboil stays now.

It's basically canned food without the can, with a drink mix and a few condiments thrown in. The water in the food packets is what adds slightly to the weight, but with the MH meals you will at some point also need extra water to make the MH gruel look like food again. Only weight advantage I could see with MH is if you were counting on an outside water source somewhere along your trek and thus wouldn't have to pack it. You would need to pack means to purify the water to stay safe tho.
