The Legacy Food Storage Premium 1080 Serving Package is a typical dehydrated food package that comes in square buckets. This is how we rated the package:
Price per calorie
This package rates in the lower end of packages we have reviewed with 192 calories per dollar. On its website, Legacy Food Storage likes to compare itself to some of the more expensive food storage packages to inflate its low-cost perception.
The taste score for this package is ok. Bear Creek is known for its soups, and most of this package is just various soups. The soups are good, but they are just soups.
Legacy Food Storage does well in the space category. The easiest and most efficient way to store food storage is in square buckets. This package contains 9 buckets.
As is usual for food stored in mylar pouches in plastic buckets, you can expect about 15 – 20 years of shelf life. Although the food may last longer, it starts to lose nutritional value rapidly past 20 years. Disregard claims of a 25-year shelf life.
All the food has been prepared in easy-to-eat meals, so there is no cooking. Although you can eat dehydrated food straight out of the bag, you really need to “cook” it in boiling water.
