Even if I know they are coming and I'm the one who paid for them. None of that matters. Getting packages is always happy, happy, happy.
I'm not a prepper by any means, but am looking to build some food reserves (I blew my opportunity to build ammo reserves). Living in a small town without a grocery store (the one we had in town closed about a month after we moved in) can be a pain in the butt sometimes, so if I can always have staples on hand, I'm ahead of the game.
Last year at a gun show, I sampled some food from Thrive and really loved it. I ordered a few things last fall and liked it. I might have more than liked the convenience of the freeze dried ground beef. Holy easy to use! I didn't even have to dirty a pan to fry it up.
With my phlebotomy class money this month, I ordered the Thrive Smart Start pack, not quite knowing what to expect. I figured we'd get a few #10 cans of something or other. When I opened up my box, I was super excited to find this:
|17 pantry cans and 4 Thrive Express packets.|
I don't even know where to start with all of this. I'm just so excited to have it here and now can't wait until next month.
Has anyone else tried any freeze dried foods? Mountain House? Wise Food Supply? Thrive? What have your experiences been?
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm feeling the need for some brownies :)
