Plain and simple, food is fuel for all of your adventures. With that in mind, the chefs at Mountain House doubled down on making convenient, great tasting, no hassle, and sensational meals. Ready in two minutes in a microwave or nine minutes in the pouch, now there’s no excuse not to enjoy a delicious meal when you’re on an adventure or training for an adventure.
Mountain House Simple Sensations meals swerve from the standard freeze-dried meals in several ways. For starters, they have no preservatives, no artificial flavors, no artificial colors. They’re certified gluten free, and the packaging is recyclable using Terracycle. All you need is boiling water, a spoon, and an appetite. Admittedly, Mountain House is best known for their popular freeze-dried meals, but this new selection emphasizes full-flavor, savory ingredients, and ultra convenience. It’s everything in one: a pot to cook in, a bowl to serve you, and swift clean up. Ideally, we would always make good food choices in the mountains or on the trail, but that’s just not real life. Nine times out of 10, food choices are dictated by food convenience. Whereas some backpacker meals require multiple steps, or strange rehydration, the Simple Sensations meals don’t require refrigeration, and you can enjoy them in a tent, in a boat, in an RV, or anywhere you have boiling water. Choose from three delicious meals: Chicken Fajita Bowl, Spicy Southwest Style, and Italian Style Pepper Steak. Personally, I prefer the Spicy Southwest Style, but I can assure you they’re all good meals.
