I've been eating Mountain House freeze dried food for years, works fine for me.  A number of flavors I like.  I can OD on them pretty quick if I'm spending a lot of time backpacking, but here and there they go down easy.  The last time I was stocking up at REI, right next to them was Alpine Aire dinners.  Some intriguing sounding flavors.  Decided to grab a couple of those too just for something different.  On my last trip I had their Thai chicken with noodles.  It was good.  Seemed way more flavorful than Mountain House.  The chicken actually resembled chicken.  It had a bunch of cilantro in it that really made it pop.  Hoping their other stuff is as good.

As commercial meals go, AA is much better than MH. You can get a good selection online as well.

The other thing one can do is buy the MH freeze dried ingredients in #10 cans and combine them with your own spices to create your own recipes.   This can be cost effective as well -- as many ingredients like instant rice, powdered potatoes, etc may be gotten cheaper elsewhere.

Packed in quart freezer bags such meals will last for long enough for a long  backpacking trip -- just not the years of the factory sealed foil packs.

I've tried a few more flavors.  The spicy sausage pasta was good.
