One thought on “Mountain House Freeze Dried Food

  1. I have to say, the Mountain House “Blueberries with Granola and Milk” is my favorite breakfast item they offer. I could eat this every day and never get tired of it. The blueberries are tasty, the milk is thick, and the granola is not too sweet. I have this item in my long term storage and occasionally get some out as a treat for myself and family. We all love it. My daughter especially likes the fact that the blueberries turn the milk purple. This makes it an easy sell to kids. Try it and you will agree.
