First off. Most people don't open this and use it, as it is for emergencies. So you won't find as many revies as there should be. With that said, I haven't used it, but i have researched it. This is the best bang for the buck. $10 cheaper than wise and you get so much more. This is emergency food with a potential shelf life of 20ish years. I hope to never taste it!! Shipping was very fast and everything came well packed. Close to 2k calories a day. Most others are far less than that. I am sure if your a guy like me(6'3", 240LBS) you will need every bit of 2000 cals. Mostly meatless and "soupish". I am giving this 5 stars for amount of food and calories.
The ingredients list from the cans we received reads: "Cheese powder (whey, buttermilk solids,cheeses [granular and cheddar pasturized milk, cheese culture, salt, enzymes], whey protein concentrate, salt, sodium phosphate, citric acid, FD&C yellow #5, FD&C yellow #6, lactic acid, enzymes), modified corn starch, creamer (maltodextrin, palm oi), silicon dioxide." We are only giving this an "Average" 3 stars rating, because, Since the product name is "Cheese Blend Powder" and no further info about ingredients, and the can displaying a wedge of cheese, we assumed it was a blend of various types of Real Cheese. We dislike the fake cheese flavored stuff you get with the buck a box mac & cheese....and never thought that this would be what we were buying, at $** a can for 43 servings (of just the sauce for the rest of your meal). Unfortunately, as we all know, these days you have to vote for the bill to see what's in the bill.... We are trying to have an emergency food storage, which we are finding very costly to do; most products cost well over $1 per serving, and this product reinforces our experience that not only are ingredients difficult to ascertain, serving size also is difficult to ascertain. Since we often use a homemade cheese sauce to pull together a simple meal, we thought this would be something very familiar for an emergency situation, to be able to make the stored foods seem familiar. This will be part of our stored foods, but we'll not buy any more. We continue to search for Real Cheese, and with all the surplus cheese around, there has to be some place that has put it all in cans, without colorings, for $** a can.
Anything related to these products are worth having. You just never know and it's important to have supplies. I hope I don't need to use them but the great thing is the last over 25 years so these are worth the investments to have. Have at least a years worth per person.
