If taste is important to you then it is really hard to beat the Emergency Essentials Convenience Year Supply (Formerly the Gourmet 2000: 1-Year Supply of Food.) This package is a mix of freeze-dried and dehydrated food (with more freeze-dried than dehydrated) and has a reasonable price per calorie score.

Product Description

This is one of the highest rated products we have reviewed on the Food Storage Reviewer. We highly recommend it because it scores highly across all the categories–especially in taste. This is how we scored the Emergency Essentials Convenience Year Supply of Food.

Price per calorie

As is to be expected, the price per calorie of this package is less than the Emergency Essentials Premium 2000 package with a figure of 166 calories per dollar. This is on the lower end of the scale. But the tradeoff decision is simple: do you want more calories or better taste?

Taste

We gave this product one of the top scores for taste. It contains a huge variety of 48 different foods giving you choices including tasty freeze-dried dishes like tangy Sweet and Sour Pork with Rice, creamy Pasta Primavera, savory Lasagna, and customer favorite Turkey Tetrazzini. Also, this package contains a lot of Mountain House dishes, which are the best in the industry.

Shelf Life

You simply can’t get better shelf life. All of the foods containing animal products have been freeze dried, which gives them the highest shelf life possible. Most of this will last 30 years before the nutritional content really starts to break down.

Prep Time

It only takes boiling water (you can use cold water but it won’t taste as good) and 10 minutes to get this food ready to eat. Although some emergency foods can be prepared slightly quicker, 10 minutes isn’t too long to wait for great taste.

Space

All of the Emergency Essentials Convenience Year Supply emergency food comes in #10 cans. Although it’s ideal for keeping out unwanted pests, it doesn’t provide the best use of space. Also, once you have opened a can you only have about a week (depending on humidity) to use it all up. There are 213 #10 cans that take up about 37 cubic feet of storage.
