For all the Why’s and Wherefore’s of Survival Saturday, please visit the Intro Post. Thanks!
This month we decided to try Au Gratin Potatoes. Let’s just say, that along with the majority of the Efoods Gold products, it was a big fat failure! Not even Sam and Frodo, starving to death in Mordor, would have eaten this finished product.
Directions & Ingredients:
Water, pots, whisk and the stomach of a starving gargant
I knew we were getting something special when I had to use TWO packages, because good things always come in two’s, right? However, the preservative, that in previous posts I’ve thought was turmeric, was once against front and center. As soon as I opened the package of seasoning and mixed it up in the bowl I knew we weren’t going to get far. It is just bitter and nasty. I would HAVE to be starving to want to eat more than an exploratory bowl of this stuff.
We both agreed that we liked the potato part and I wouldn’t mind cooking up the additional packages of potatoes and just eating them with salt n pepper or cheese or something, but that packet of “au gratin” flavoring? No thanks!
I might have said this before in previous posts, but the supplier, Efoodsdirect, has either gone out of business or been bought out or something. They no longer exist as a company, which considering their food is supposed to last for 25 years, is wicked ironic, don’cha think?
