Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Bacon
Price Paid: $4
I eat this for breakfast 15 to 20 times a year and have found them to be a lot better if you drain the excess water by opening the zip lock enough to form a small hole to let the water drain. Some of the salt taste goes out with the excess water.
Price Paid: $5
Arguably the least edible food I've ever tasted. Completely nasty. Cooked this on a backpacking trip for my daughter, while I had the eggs with peppers. I made this for my girl and tasted it, absolutely dreadful.
Wanting an honest opinion from her I brought it to the tent and let her try it...her cry from inside the tent was "oh my god this is DISGUSTING!!". and the arm extended out of the tent with the bowl. it's the artificial bacon flavor that is completely nasty. It got half a star because it might keep you alive if necessary.
The eggs and peppers on the other hand were pretty tasty! But after one bite I made the mistake of reading the nutrition label...which reveals that these products are comprised mainly of cholesterol and salt. While I understand that certain fats and salts are required by backpackers, I am definitely reading labels on all backpacking meals..and many are incredibly non-healthy. Definitely read labels on all Mountain House products, some are very reasonable, others are NOT.

We followed the instructions to the letter, in a non rushed environment, with great cooking gear...yikes, it was pretty bad. Totally edible, but will be skipped when purchasing chow, unless they have some banner on the pack claiming a "New and improved taste!"- even then, I will think twice.
OK, it is not THAT bad, but bad enough in my opinion.

I prepared this over a backpacking trip that turned out to be longer than expected. This was in my emergency pack. It got me though, but I wouldn't restock it. I think powdered eggs have more flavor...wow...did I just say that?
