I was send a couple of Food Insurance single serving pouch samples for review.
The single serving packages are excellent quality and also resealable. They can also able to be used to cook your meal in by following the simple instructions on the back. While the packaging was very plain, I say, who cares. It is what is on the inside that really matters.
Lasagna with Meat Sauce – The Lasagna with Meat sauce was very easy to cook and also tasted very good. I was able to cook the meal in about nine minutes by adding boiling water directly into the pouch, mixing it thoroughly, and sealing it up. After it is finished, I found that it was cooked thoroughly, and smelled and tasted very good. The lasagna was not runny at all. It had very good texture. I found lots of pieces of meat in it as well. Each pouch contains one serving at 300 calories.
Beef Stroganoff with Noodles – The Beef Stroganoff was also very easy to cook and tasted and smelled very good. All it took was boiling water in the pouch, mix thoroughly, and then seal the pouch for a few minutes. It had very good texture and consistency. There was plenty of meat pieces in it as well. Each pouch contains one serving at 320 calories.
I also got to try some small samples of their Freeze Dried Chicken Alfredo, as well as some freeze dried corn (uncooked), and freeze dried pineapple (uncooked). While I only got a small taste of these, they were all good. I was surprised that the uncooked products were good. Especially the pineapple. It was like eating candy. I can picture your kids wanting to eat the pineapple all the time.
While it would have been nice to have a few more samples to try, I would have to say that what I did get was excellent. They also have freeze dried fruits, vegetables, meats, drinks, and desserts. Most of their products come in the #10 cans, while only a few come in the pouches. Their website says that their products will last for up to 25 years if stored in a dry cool place.
