Serving sizes got smaller after the package re-design. A lot of people need more than 500/600 calories per package while hiking.

There used to be buckets with a variety of meals for $35 ish. Then prices suddenly jumped a bunch, more than doubled. What happened?

You skipped 2020 did you? C19 happen. People got scared and wiped out supply causing prices to shoot up. Mountain House isn't able to produce these in the scale needed to satisfy the demand.

The price went up before that. I don't know when the re-design happened, perhaps it went up after that.

I've bought my mom a 12 pouch bucket every Christmas since 2014. They've always been between $50 and $60. The buckets are going for $104 now.

if you're talking about the classic bucket, they're been around $40-$60 range depending on sales for pretty much all of the 2010s. I didn't notice a price spike until spring of 2020. $100-ish is the "new normal" price.

Right, the classic bucket. I haven't seen that price before 2020, but then I haven't been checking all the time, just not seeing the slickdeals come up.

Mountain House has the list price as $109.99 currently. I don't know if it was always that list price and just got heavily discounted prior to 2020, or the list price was lower prior to 2020, but now it's not anymore. If you find a store that has stock, it's going to be pretty close to that list price. Might be why you're not seeing too many slickdeals posts on Mountain House these days.

The #10 can (at least for Beef Stroganoff) is slightly cheaper, and you can scoop portions into your own vacuum-seal bags to cook them in on the go.

It's a shame these pouches are so expensive now.

The world became decidedly more tumultuous. Not a bad idea to stash a bunch of very long lasting food. Not just for a tumultuous society, but just your average disaster preparedness.

Prices will plummet once this pandemic cools down.

I'm not as optimistic as you, more people realized this past year just have fragile their position is. To add insult to injury, our money become more worthless with each passing day and it doesn't look like that's turning around any time soon and will get more worthless as more of it is printed and given out. We have yet to see the true cost of shutting down the world for a year. For those with the means, freeze dried food will be highly desirable for the foreseeable future.
