Blue cheese sauce would have made sense... Just the addition of that cream cheese sauce that put it out of my liking. Some people may like this tho...

Hannonmc,

Was there any chicken in it as well? :?

Yes, there was chicken. It was ok. Typical freeze dried chicken. I was just hoping this would have been better.

I saw one of the Wraps filling pouches and since Chicken Salad sounded good, I figured I'll give it a shot and let the rest of you know.
Thanks for the excellent review Treesuit, and for starting this ball rolling!

I picked up a couple dozen Alpine Aire varieties during an Amazon sale late last year / early this year, so I'll be posting some reviews, soon. Your Chicken Salad inspired me to try the equivalent AA one, which worked out well. :)

First, just wanted to mention that REI has a 20% off sale on Mountain House entrees, and they'll even ship for free if the order is over $25. Most items were $5.19.
The sale runs thru May 30, 2011.

I picked up four in store earlier this week (they had a decent selection), and plan to do an online ship-to-me order after sampling some. This morning, I tried the Breakfast Scrambler, and it was very good (yes, I took pics!). I'll definitely be including more in my order. :)

Turtle Nomad,

Is that a online special or just at REI?

It's only an REI special.
It's both online and in-store. I hate REI's stores (and honking parking lots), so usually shop online.

To add to the REI overview sale link which DirtBag kindly posted, here's a few more specific links:
all Mountain House sale items at REI
all on-sale Food items at REI

Costco members may also be interested in this great deal (24 "Wraps" pouches for $99.99):

I've got some other big retailer free-dried pouches deals links/suggestions, which I'll post later. :)

Reminder: the REI sale ends at the end of this Monday (30 May).


Treesuit, you mentioned that the MH "Chicken Salad" contains pumpkin seeds. Did you notice any taste of it? Just curious - I like pumpkin. :)

Guys, check your local Walmart's Sporting goods section. :mrgreen: They carry Mountain House entrees and deserts at decent prices. At least you can avoid the S/H charges.... :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

TurtleNomad,

Oh yes, there were quite a bit of pumpkin seeds in that entree' and there was a slight taste of pumpkin in the mix. But I think it gave the chicken salad a more refined texture and taste that something that would stand out.

I don't mind pumpkin that much but the thought of pumpkin seeds in a salad doesn't appeal to me that much. :oops: I guess its an acquired taste.
