Purchased to have some "emergency" food for snowstorms, all real ingredients! Tried a two year old meal, and it was actually wonderful. Tried every meal now, they are all surprisingly good, even the meals that I didn't think I would like. I find myself occasionally munching on one just because. If you are prepping for the end of the world, or just want some shelf stable food for a temporary emergency, this is a great choice. Also, probably not a bad idea to quickly feed a kid or student something that is not microwaved. My picky eater of a kid eats these with me without a complaint.
