Survivalcave Food Taste Test

I recently made the Creamy Potato Soup entree from Survivalcave Food, one of our sponsors.  I never know how a dish will turn out and I always assure any companies that send me a sample that I will give a fair and honest review.

Preparation is simple:  Just add water.

In this case, the ratio is 1/4 cup of Potato soup mix to 1 cup of water.  Because we were having it for lunch, I added the entire package.

I waited until the water was boiling then added the soup mix.  I lowered the heat to medium and let the mixture simmer for about 20 minutes.  I stirred it a few times to make sure nothing gets stuck to the bottom of the pan.   After about 10 minutes, the soup was smelling really good and the family was looking forward to trying it.  (I’ve had to be “persuasive” on some of the stuff we’ve tested, but this time they were actually waiting to try it!)

The soup also thickens as it cools –  I added a bit more water as the soup got thicker, but this would be according to your preference.

The family and I tasted the soup and it is delicious.  It has a good balance of spices, and enough potato chunks and carrot pieces that it tastes hearty.  It is a filling dish, with generous portions.  Although it’s a 5-serving pouch, there was enough for six servings:  Three people had a bowl of this soup for lunch, plus and we had enough soup left over for the next day.

We had Survivalcave Food Tropical Fruit – dried bananas for dessert and they were quite tasty as well.

I recommend you try them out – this long term storage food will last for 20 years, and now we know their food is tasty too.

  1. Sounds good, the problem we have run into is a weird after taste with some dehydrated potato products. I have also heard their canned meat is tasty.
