What I liked:
Easy to make, boil 12-16 oz water (depending upon how runny you like it) pour it in, reseal it, stir / squish for 10 minutes, Viola! Easy cleanup, reseal, repack, repatriate.
What I didn't like:
The taste is poor-fair, reminding me of "mush" something you hear about as a kid on TV, not really sure what it is, but have a pretty good idea you're not interested in it.
There maybe 500 calories in the bag, but this meal didn't remind me of any potatoes & beef (with or without onions) I'd ever had.
Salt is pretty high, 86% RDA for this single pouch. Not a big problem if you eating low / no salt for other meals, but you probably wouldn't want to eat 3 of these a day.
I do believe they can make a quality good tasting meal without the high salt levels.
