This bucket of gourmet freeze dried meat will easily feed a large party and save you from slaving away in the kitchen. It includes ten servings of six different styles of beef and chicken, plus rice, to feed many different tastes and appetites....more
The "meals" are either 50 or 100 calories. Yikes. A chipmunk can't live on that. The size of a freeze dried portion is about the same as a single saltine. Add some water and it isn't going to turn into a full meal. I have not opend a package to try one yet, but the packaging does list the caloric content. Too bad you can't read it on the picture that they provide.
I purchased two buckets of this food. One got lost in transit. Overstock worked with me to get my replacement product which arrived yesterday. UPS which was responsible for delivery was not responsive to my email requests to track the lost package, so Overstock replaced it. I am very satisfied with Overstock's customer service in getting a replacement for my purchase. They called to confirm when it was not found and responded to several of my emails on the status of the order. Thanks to Michelle G. at Overstock for great customer service.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. A good supplement for an emergency situation or when you don't have time to go to the store to get what you need.
there seems to be alot of empty space in the container, god forbide i should open it to check, since that would decline the shelf life. still can't beat the deal with overstock verses buying from the manufacturer though
We have been purchasing freeze-dried foods for that "just in case" scenario that you hope will never happen in your life time. We were going to order this product and then it was gone in a flash. I went to other sites that I've used for getting really goods prices on items such as this, but to my dismay they were quite a bit more costly! Now I know why O.Co's went so quickly-they were a minimum of $10 less than the cheapest site that I could find that even had them in stock! I put my email address in at the site at Overstock so that when it came back into stock I would definitely buy some more. And when I got the email from O.Co I did just that! I haven't tried them yet but they sound very good and healthy too. They have very little fat or cholesterol to my pleasant surprise! You also get 20 servings of rice. You can't beat that at that price-not even at the Wise site. We are thinking that maybe 2 containers may not be enough-we are going to try them out and if they are as good as they sound then I think we'll be back on that site again. Thank you for having the best prices and fastest delivery on the web that I could find!

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Just okay-each packet holds 4 servings not one
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Haven't used yet
There are 60 servings but a serving is only 260 calories. In a emergency situation you will need 1500 calories per day. So about 12 days worth of food for one person. Wise does a good job and I might buy more - was hoping a serving size had more calories. It does taste good and would be great to eat in an emergency
Bought as EMERGENCY SUPPLIES, so I hope I won't have to use them, ever! My research led me to buy this brand and Overstock had the best price. Simple common sense. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

food parmesan alfredo noodles that is offered in their regular food line-4 servings as they say -actually about a cup or a bit more per person after cooking-hope that gives u a rough idea-it did feed 3 adults and 1 child.jonddi on Mar 17, 2013
Thank you for your inquiry. The serving size range from 11-15 grams which is the equivalent to 1/4 of the pouch. Therefore each packet contains 4 servings. For a complete rundown of the nutrition facts here is a link :

Do you offer a comparable product that has smaller serving sizes? A great deal would be wasted on my wife and I if we had to open such large serving packages. I would think that the obvious advantages of smaller packages would make it a breeze to pass on the extra cost to create this level of packaging.1sasquatch on Aug 2, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
No, we presently do not offer a product with smaller serving packages on Overstock.com.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 13, 2012
