I've been doing some field testing of various backpacking foods and found this at A16 in West LA. It was $5 and sounded pretty yummy.
The meal rehydrated very well—the potatoes themselves were pretty good. Even the kernals of corn turned out well. But the sauce was over-seasoned with something strong (rosemary?) and over-all was scary salty. I thought the taste was reminicent of Stove Top Stuffing.

I think everyone has their own taste and perhaps someone will absolutely love this. But I did not and am reluctant to try other meals by Enertia Foods.
