I was very skeptical when I bought this freeze dried meal. I bough it mainly for my daughter cause I knew it was something she'd eat. We had just sat down after a hard day of hiking. The kids had done really well. They were both very hungry and tired. This meal literally disappeared when I put it in front of my daughter. It looked alot like Spaghetti in a can, BUT it didn't taste anything like that. I can see why they sell this in a large can. We could have eaten a few more servings. It's not that the servings were small, we were just that hungry. Three thumbs up for the Mountain House Spaghetti!
