I plan on buying and storing Mountain House #10 size freeze dried foods. They have a longer storage life than MRE's and taste pretty good. Storage temperature is critical in getting the maximum life out of any kind of survival or emergency food supplies. Mountain house foods should store for close to 25 years if you can store them around 60 degrees max. Before buying the large cans, I would recommend buying the same food in smaller quantities and trying them. What one person says is good you may not agree with!
