Wow, thank you for spotting this, OP. Both those prices are historic lows per Camelx3, and by a considerable margin. When Mountain House deals come up, folks sometimes question the wisdom of buying dehydrated entrees for emergency food stores versus canned and dry goods. Which are still a cheaper, easier alternative. To some extent, I think they have a point. But these Mountain House entries do make more sense in certain situations:

1) If long term shelf life is a primary concern, the MH entrees are good for 30 years, far longer than any conventional foods found in your typical grocery store.

2) For backpackers, these multi-day kits are far and away the most economical way to purchase MH entrees for your next backcountry adventure. If you're out for more than a few days, it can make a huge difference in pack weight.

3) For preppers who want to be able to respond quickly to an evacuation order (e.g. wildfires or hurricanes), 3 or 4 days of dehydrated meals are going to be much lighter, compact and easy to toss into the car than a similar amount of canned/dry food.

And of course:
4) Zombies. Do you really want to be lugging 3 days worth of canned goods when being chased by Zombieland- or 28 Days Later-style rage zombies? Didn't think so. Remember, even the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging all Americans to prepare for the coming inevitable zombie apocalypse. No, seriously. [cdc.gov] Smilie

Great source of calories as well. Meals are tasty, but I had horrible heartburn after every meal by day 3. Not sure if that's because there's a lot of sodium, or because I was eating the entire pack at once.

It doesn't really affect it. All of the meals are individually sealed, Mountain House just has a few different packages for different budgets/quantities.

Got a tub of this stuff sealed in the basement in the event of a long power outage. Never know.

i bought something similar a few years back that came in a sealed plastic tub. I believe I read somewhere that opening that tub does diminish the length of it's expiration date.

how does the "4 day emergency (28 servings) bucket square up to the traditional "just in case" (29 servings) bucket?

they both go on sale for around $50. cant find any comparison reviews on google

If it's like other canned/packaged food, it's good forever, well almost forever. You should see some of the videos of this guy eating MRE's that are 40-50 years old. Some are edible for the most part, but some do spoil.

If I had to guess, it's good for at least 30 years, just might not taste very good after a 10 years, but it would still be edible.
