Buyer beware. I bought this package for emergency food and camping. The food from Mountain House has been historically good. My reduced rating is because of the kit's composition. Even though this is supposed to be a 30-day supply of meals, you only get to eat breakfast for 24 of the 30 days. You cannot save contents for another day in an attempt to stretch your supplies in either a camping or emergency food situation due to lack of refrigeration. One food packet for one person per meal. Some of the packets will say that it contains two servings. Not unless you eat like a bird. If you're going to sell a 30-day supply, you need to provide 30 breakfast pouches and 60 entrees. Also, despite Mountain House having several breakfast options, 12 of those 24 days that you get to eat breakfast, you eat granola...really? The Biscuits & Gravy are great, so how about another box of those to bring it up to the right number of meals?

First, for those who don't know, many preppers and backpackers like Mountain House freeze-dried meals. They taste good and have a good shelf life.
This is an online Costco.com deal only.

Costco is currently offering $80 off $469.99 (savings end 10/25, or until supplies last).
So it costs $389.99, which includes shipping and handling.
This bundle contains 84 Mountain House pouches (14 cases x 6 pouches in each case).
This works out to $4.64 for each pouch.
https://www.mountainhouse.com/m/costco.html --> works out to $4.61 per pouch
32 servings / 13 pouches for $59.99

(Not a 30 day supply, but according to the reviews the item listed in the OP isn't truly a 30 day supply either.)
