I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this survival food product. Given my usual satisfaction with Mountain House quality, I had confidence this would be delicious, while at the same time, I was troubled with my glaringly obvious concern of a freeze dried egg and bacon product. To my surprise, the meal was surprisingly pleasant! My style of survival food review is to break the item down and follow that up with a final review, so read on.
Taste: 9/10 – the reason for such a high score is a given – the eggs actually tasted like eggs mixed with bacon bits.
Texture: 9/10 – Similar to real eggs, but not quite, and lighter.
Convenience: 8.5/10 – Obviously, a survival food product doesn’t get much easier than boiling water and allowing it to sit for 5 – 6 minutes, but the item isn’t quite deserving of a 10/10 because of the inherent trouble of boiling the water.
Stealth Factor: 10/10 – The whole preparation process results in very little odor. This survival food would be unlikely to attract unwelcomed dinner guests.
Bulk: 9/10 – Given that it’s a freeze dried survival food product, it’s nearly weightless, and the packaging itself takes up little space in your emergency food storage.
Nutrition: 9.5/10 – The emergency food product has copious amounts of protein and good levels of carbohydrates. As a breakfast, or for a quick infusion of energy any time of the day, this product gets high marks.
Filling Factor: 8/10 – Given that it’s an egg and bacon meal, you’d expect to have this at the start of your day, and in this function, it serves its intended purpose well. After consuming Mountain House Scrambled Eggs and Bacon, you should feel reasonably full.
Final Review: 9/10 – Given it’s an freeze dried survival food breakfast, Mountain House Scrambled Eggs and Bacon is exceptionally delicious, has a more-than-acceptable texture, serves as a good source of nutrients, is very lightweight, takes up very little space in your long term food storage pantry and attracts very little to no unwanted attention.
