Not a bad deal at all, but a 6 year shelf life is not good.

Wondering the same thing. I have a few mountain house buckets in my closet that have a 25 year shelf life printed on the packaging. It's the same entrees I believe. I'll go check...

These sell individually for $6-$9 at Sports Authority/REI/Walmart. This is a great price.

Will be checking the SSF Costco on my way home. Thanks OP!

Good deal. Don't understand the 6 year shelf life though? See below.

Maybe Mountain House is selling off older stock, hence the shorter shelf life?

Anyway, I'd eat it well beyond 6 years.

IIRC the bags usually only have 6-7 year shelf life vs the container. I thought they had recently done something to the bags that was going to bump the bag shelf life up to 10 yrs.

I picked up one of those 1-2 yrs ago for $39.99 at Costco. Hope we get some in the bay area.

I picked up two boxes today at $29.97 each. The boxes say they have a six year shelf life, but the "Best Used by" date on the boxes is Mar 2019 (5 years, 5 months from now). But as I said earlier, I'd have no problem eating them decades into the future. They may lose a little flavor and nutritional value over a very long time, but they won't go "bad" and they will still provide ample sustenance when consumed.

Each box contains 10 pouches as follows:
(3) Chicken Teriyaki with Rice, 5.01 oz (142g), 548 Total Calories
(2) Beef Stew, 4.30 oz (122g), 523 Total Calories
(3) Beef Stroganoff with Noodles, 4.80 oz (136g), 620 Total Calories
(2) Lasagna with Meat Sauce, 4.80 oz (136g), 604 Total Calories

(Note: The nutritional information on the box differed slightly from that on the individual packages, so the calories posted above were calculated from the information listed on the pouches.)

This is a very good deal considering that Costco was previously selling these at $46.99 per box. I'm sure the fact that these have been sitting on Costco's shelves for the past 7 months are the reason Costco has recently lowered their price.

That's a steal. These are great for camping or anything really. That's easy half off.

Actually, it's "best if used by" March 2019, not really an expiry date.

I've eaten them around best used date and they're fine. I rotate mine every year, when I go hiking, backpacking, and camping. This is the cheapest I've ever seen them sell for.
