It’s very interesting, but most of the comments I’ve received are coming from a website that sells survival gear and freeze-dried foods.
What’s interesting about it, is that I happen to like freeze-dried foods – specifically, freeze-dried ice-cream!
What’s not to love about ice-cream that doesn’t melt 🙂 It won’t drip on my books, or keyboard, and if I have to answer the twins’ loud calls of nature, I don’t come back to find my treat a sodden puddled mess in the bowl.
The best prices I’ve found so far are at www.vitacost.com
but hold on a sec, pardner – in addition to their already extremely discounted prices, how about an additional 10% off?
First of all, you’ll need to visit my fave, www.ebates.com
If you don’t have an account, please sign up for one and give
firstname.lastname@example.org as the email referring you –
it’s free, and we’ll both get a credit for $5.
Then do a search for the vitacost store. You’ll see ebates gives 5% cashback. Click their link for vitacost and a new window will open for vitacost, which you can shop from.
Then, at checkout, open a new browser page and check out www.retailmenot.com over in my ‘Go To’ Deal sites list on the right side of this page, and do a search for discount codes for www.vitacost.com . They usually have a 5% discount one.
A total of 10% in discounts/cashback!
Now about the Mountain House brand of freeze-dried foods:
Anything sold in a pouch is fine, but their CANNED stuff should be avoided as they use pthalates and Bisphenol-A in their cans. I emailed Mountain House directly to check their packaging.
I’ve also called Vitacost to let them know and they said they will investigate this, also.
But the pouch stuff is ok – including ICE CREAM!!! YAY!!
It’s the same stuff as the “Astronaut Ice-Cream”, but cheaper.
