Just tried the Wise Beef and Noodles in Mushroom Gravy and thought it to be VERY GOOD and I will try more of their products when money allows.

Endorsing As Seen On TV ProductsCelebrities have gotten into this market by endorsing these products and also some celebrities even created their own products to advertise on television commercials. Some of the top spokespeople for items advertised on television are The late Billy Mays, Anthony Sullivan, Vince Offer, Suzanne Somers, Susan Lucci, Marie Osmond, Cathy Mitchell, George Foreman, Jack LaLanne, Hulk Hogan and Ron Popeil.
Wise Company a€?wiselya€? invested in is own manufacturing facility a few years ago and can control the quality and availability of the supply chain. Founded in 2008 from a messy split from partner Food For Health International, this Utah company decided to skip the traditional route of putting food storage in #10 cans and instead package it in metalized pouch bags instead. Before we do get too deep, we’d like to point out that since Wise Company only sells food items.
Buying at a variety of retail locations was a convenience many other brands can’t offer. On a few occasions we reached out to their customer service reps via phone and email to ask a variety of questions.
Our only gripe with their customer service was the unsatisfactory response we got over one of our biggest problems with Wise Food Storage.
For example, their food storage calculator and the majority of their product pages tell you that a person only needs 2 to 3 servings of food per day. When you compare Wise Food Company food storage pouches to other similar products such as Mountain House and Backpacker’s Pantry you will see that their food is priced very competitively.
While their pricing is lower, our experience is that the Wise Food products are not as good as Mountain House meals.
It didn’t take long when we started doing the research for our Wise Food Storage Review that we noticed Wise Foods is just selling the tip of the ice berg when it comes to food storage.
Wise Foods is a solid option for people that want just add water meals (and a few other items) but don’t want individual food components like baking soda, wheat, oats, ect . With regards to the shelf life claims Mountain House has challenged Wise Food Storage’s shelf life claims. As we mentioned in the opener, Wise Foods has only carried just-add water meals for the majority of its existence. Wise Food Storage makes their meals from a blend of dehydrated and freeze-dried components.
While we are not raving fans of the food we like that Wise Company offers free samples for people to test out the food before buying. Product pages as the one seen below are helpful in that they have tabs of information like Nutritional Specs, breakdown of what comes in each bucket, and more. Lastly, there is an online chat as well which we appreciate as we can ask questions while we are doing things on our computers and have their answers in writing which is never a bad thing for a consumer. Just like Wise lacks in the product variety department, they also tend to lack in the information and resourcefulness department. Wise Food Storage does have a decent sized YouTube channel with 50+ videos, though a good percentage of the videos are of commercials from radio talk personalities pitching Wise Foods. In closing, we would have preferred to have access to some bank of resources to peruse through.
As you can see Wise Food Storage has some big ground to gain if they want to be more than just a quick meal pouch company. We haven’t tried it but a lot of these quick qook meals would NOT work out well being cooked for a long period of time. What is Much Much Worse is Wise promoted on their website and too their sellers a product which they did not have USDA APPROVAL to sell or ship.
I felt there was not enough protein in the meals, and the salt (sodium) was ridiculously high. I will keep looking, and probably add weight training meal replacements to the mix for protein. Just wanted to confirm that I have cooked our meals at trade shows many times in a crock pot. Also, I completely understand some of complaints about some of the meals not tasting like Olive Garden. I noticed that LPC Survival stopped selling Wise Food Buckets some years ago implying they were sub-par or something. If my family is eating and alive after a disaster, then how have I “lost money”? Just a heads up, every company in the industry was seeing a huge spike from the latest prophecies about the end of the world along with a shaky financial market in September. Reviews may contain links to 3rd parties who may reward a commission if you purchase an item. Preparing your emergency food supply can seem daunting enough, but what if your diet limits what kind of food you can eat?
From the companies we’ve reviewed on this website, Augason Farms has the largest selection of gluten free products, by far.
If Food Insurance is your provider of choice then your limited to just a few soups and pancakes that are gluten free. While Augason Farms offers a wide variety of singular gluten free food storage options, Preparewise has actually gone to the trouble to create several gluten-free packages. You must have JavaScript enabled in your browser to utilize the functionality of this website. Smart packaging provides for a long shelf life and easy storage of all Wise Company products. Wise products have the highest customer ratings for quality and convenience in the industry.
The food products offered include 72 hour food supply packages, Grab and Go food kits for 7 days for 2, 3 or 4 adults, as well as 84 and 152 serving packages, and various long term food kit solutions. For example, the company sells a 7 Day Ultimate Emergency Meal Kit for 2 Adults which packs 116 total servings.
Not bad value, considering the shelf life of 7 years and the easy to stack square bucket design. At first, it may be hard to distinguish Wise Company Food Storage from other brands such as Daily Bread or Food Insurance. This means the company is not beholden to others when it comes to delivering their products.

If you feel Wise Company products are the right option for you then this is a good deal to take advantage of. In fact, quite a few other food storage resellers are starting to resell Wise Food Storage products. I can remember the days when the most advertising you would see in emergency preparedness was a newsletter or a booth at a survivor conference. I placed the order but recalled that when I spoke with the company before the told me that your best deals come from calling in as opposed to ordering online.
Ordered from a variety of online retailers to get the best prices on an overall storage solution. In order to post comments, please make sure JavaScript and Cookies are enabled, and reload the page. The reasons include a good price point, innovative packaging that allows you to only open what you need, and a consumer-friendly marketing program.
That’s 25 years without the stress of wondering if your family will have enough good, usable food when emergency strikes.

Make a “Wise decision” by investing in long-lasting emergency supplies that are  perfect for emergency preparedness  and also affordable for daily use. Finally a great solution for dependable, simple, and affordable choices for both your emergency food supply and outdoor camping needs.
There were a variety of differences we noticed as we conducted our research for our Wise Food Storage review.
This idea has since grown in popularity within the preparedness community and Wise has been at the forefront of it. They are naturally going to score low vs other more well-rounded preparedness companies we have reviewed. We didn’t get to experience the buying process through their E-commerce website which was a bummer but we did still have some customer service experiences to share in our Wise Food storage review. Generally speaking they have been knowledgeable and quick to respond via email though we would like to see a live chat feature added to the site. When you look at the nutrition panels you quickly recognize that they are on average 250 calories per serving. Because they have a free shipping deal going on, almost always you are going to save some money there. Wise has the just-add-water meal pouch product line down pat but offer no other packaging options like most food storage companies.
People that prefer the convenience of a pouch and don’t mind the reduced shelf life (more on that later) are going to definitely want to look between Wise Foods, Mountain House, and EasyPrep foods.
They are sorely lacking non-food survival gear so there really isn’t much more to say here.
They are sourced and packaged here in the good ol US of A, a great thing compared to some companies going overseas to places like China for ingredients. Many people are ok with trading quality for getting more for their dollar, and that is where Wise Foods will be a compelling alternative. Over the last 3 years we have tried several of the same meals and have noticed the quality improving.
If  you get excited hearing glowing reviews from paid conservative talk show hosts or Marie Osmond then this is the YouTube channel for you! When companies go out of their way to contribute to my families preparedness knowledge through education, my skepticism barrier comes down and my trust starts to be earned. That’s why they scored so poorly in the overall score for their review, but if you are in the market for a lower cost alternative to Mountain House pouch meals, give Wise Food Company a shot. Many of the ingredients are made to be ready fast and when prepared differently they can get soggy and or have a bad consistency. I think what’s important is deciding what is important to you and deciding how much you want to spend to get it. Those that are too salty you can add more base (rice or noodles) to make more servings and too keep sodium down.
My most recent (as of the date of this comment) post about Wise Food Storage and Mountain House shows 3rd party audits where Wise Food pouches have as almost as much oxygen (the element that makes food spoil) in their pouches as what is found in the air we breath meaning that they might as well not of sealed their pouches and just left them open. My order was put in on September 2nd, it is now October 10th and I still do not have my order. We get a lot of questions about gluten free emergency food storage, so we decided to do a round-up of some of the gluten free options that are available to consumers at the top brands in the emergency food storage industry. They offer a good variety, too, like baking mixes and ingredients, beans, drink mixes, fruits and vegetables, meats and soups. All cans containing textured vegetable protein (TVP) have been removed and replaced with additional rice, pinto beans and sprouting seeds. A partnership with Food For Health International was disbanded, and Wise Food Storage was created.
Such notables in the survival and emergency preparedness fields as survival specialist Ruth England and National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers give their backing to Wise Food products. Many online disaster prep food retailers list their products by the number of calories they provide per package or unit. The product details reveal that this is 3 big meals per day for 2 people for 1 week, providing more than 2,000 calories and 100 grams of protein per day. Several shipping options are included, which obviously drives your overall price up just a bit. That’s because Wise Company uses many of the same successful advertising and marketing tactics such as getting conservative talk radio endorsements.
By knowing they don’t have as big of an advertising budget as Daily Bread, Wise Company does a lot of things to make up for the marketing-generated perception gap. Wise has also recently developed a “black line” product that has better food and 50% less sodium. Nope – none of their meals do but they are presented in a way one would think they do (just look at the names and the pictures)! Wise also has great advertising relationships with Marie Osmond, Dave Ramsey, and Laura Ingraham as well as sponsorships on National Geographic and Doomsday Preppers.

Julie and I prefer the option for quick chat sessions opposed to calling in or emailing questions.
Wise Food advertise’s their product by serving count as opposed to calories per day, a much more informative and worthwhile number.
In the near future we hope do perform a blind taste test to get more opinions on the matter but for now you’ll have to take our word or try it yourself.
If you are out of the state of Utah you will also save on sales tax when placing an order online. Wise Foods took a lot of heat for this in the preparedness community and responded by improving the pouch quality and making sure 02 absorbers are going in every pouch. At first they seemed to have a chemical aftertaste but that does not appear to be the case with the last 4 meals we tried from them (July 2014). Simply hover over the various dark maroon menu buttons to expose a variety of sub-pages that will take you everywhere you need to go.

Ever been to a fast food joint and compared the hamburger in front of you to the one you saw on TV? I think Wise Food Storage could go a long way in getting better in this regard and hopefully they do as we can all learn more and get better educated on preparedness. I have found they do a great job backing the customer and not the business when things go south.
Some people buy preparedness foods with the idea that if they have to eat it and that is all they have they will be happy. It takes a minimum of 2 servings to get enough calories, so thats 6 servings a day, equals 240% of sodium daily reqiurements. If this is in fact true that food is not going to last more than a year (in humid areas far less) before it starts reconstituting itself. My guess is if you were to order from them again in a couple weeks now that those worries are mainly calmed, you would probably get your shipment in less than a week.
I normally buy mountain house and really enjoy the meals, this was NOTHING like mountain house. This supply comes in #10 cans and contains a variety of fruit, vegetables, beans, grains and dairy.
But you can be prepared for whatever life brings your way, and Wise Company is here to help you face those challenges head on. Their contributions to the manufacturing process have also supported expansion with product development as well.
But the meat of the website, pardon the pun, is long-term, freeze-dried and dehydrated food for emergency preparedness and outdoor use. Pricing is in line with other survival and outdoor food suppliers, higher than some and lower than others. Shipping costs vary according to your location, shipping options you choose, and obviously the weight of your product.
This includes packaging their food in mylar pouches stored in buckets rather than in #10 cans.
Often you will find them sitting side by side Mountain House pouches the industry stalwart and titan when it comes to long term shelf life meals in easy-to-take-with-you pouches. I don’t know about you, but I would like more than 500-750 calories a day to live on. We suspect the test Mountain House ran recently (linked to above) was using these cheaper pouches.] The Outdoor series of pouches allow for you to put boiling water and let the food reconstitute inside the pouch whereas the other pouches you have to pour the food out and heat it in a pot. When I called the Arrogant call taker, he sad I should called instead of web order and good customer service.
They are willing to invest in items like this if they think it has a lower cost (not always the case). If bacteria were to grow on the food you could get botulism and get sick and worse yet die. Wise Company specializes in long-term food storage and dehydrated food—Wise offers healthy, real food that’s prepared in only a matter of minutes by adding a little water. As a change from the traditional process, in a move which helped the company save money while still delivering long-lasting food, Wise Food was delivered in metallic mylar designed pouches.
At any time you can request a free sample, and call the company’s toll-free number to speak with a food storage expert.
Comparatively, Wise shipping costs run about the same as the other top disaster survival and emergency food retailers online.
This makes it easier to store and eliminates the need to hurry and use up the food once you crack open a #10 can. She could not give me a confirmation number and only said I would receive an email within the next day. Wise Food Storage has only been carrying meats and fruits for a year or two, you are going to be hard pressed to find the hundreds of other traditional food storage options most other places carry but that might not be a bad thing if all you are looking for are entrees. My favorite in Mountain House is their Terriaki Chicken and Rice so I was glad one of the Wise Meals had the same name. He told me that their product is just too good and they don’t have time to let you know when your order will ship.
I guess you’re supposed to eat part and put it in the refrigerator then microwave each day. Boiled water in the microwave then put it in the pouch and within 12 minutes or so everything was ready to eat. Our line of freeze-dried and dehydrated entrees that are ready-made and affordable are perfect for both emergency preparedness, long-term storage and even for outdoor activities like camping and hiking. Wise Company takes an innovative approach, providing dependable, simple and affordable ready-made freeze dried and dehydrated entrées for emergency preparedness and outdoor use.
This packaging process is now commonplace in the industry, and Wise was the innovator that developed it. The company also offers a 100% quality guarantee, as well as promotions which can drop your per serving cost to as low as $1. The end result of this marketing pitch is it makes people think they are getting a lot more food than they really are. Whether great taste ends up costing more or has other trade offs that is up to the buyer to learn and decide which attributes they value. Wise provides affordable, delicious and high-quality dishes that are healthy and designed to last.
Whether you are preparing your family for the future or planning your next outdoor adventure, Wise Company provides great tasting, high quality foods that are quick and easy to prepare. Because of this, they are often times able to deliver better retail value than a company that gets its fingers into every disaster survival niche.
Certain ingredients set up and taste better when freeze-dried (vegetables, fruits, meats) while others do better through dehydration. All you can hope is the person gets educated on the product options and make the best decision for themselves.
From freeze-dried veggies and meats to gluten-free entrees, Wise offers a range of dependable, easy-to-make and healthy food items that will help your family prepare for their next trip to the great outdoors, or plan for nearly any possible emergency event. Finally a dependable, simple, and affordable choice for both your emergency food supply and outdoor needs. They also advertise their food packages by the total number of servings (their serving measurement is 1 cup), instead of calorie count. In these cases, dehydrated ingredients offer all the benefits and better value than foods that have been freeze-dried. In addition to quality-prepared foods, Wise also carries an extensive line of emergency survival goods, which are perfect for do-it-yourself emergency kits.
In this day and age when things are so automated, I do not see how it would take a few days. From fuel sources to high-end portable water filtration systems, Wise carries everything you would need for a survival or emergency kit.
She had also told me initially (before I told her I wanted to cancel) that the food would probably be delivered the following week. At the time of my call this morning, her computer was down, so said she would look into it and call me back.
HUGE difference in taste between Mountain House which I really liked and Wise, which I could barely eat. This girl has been very sweet, but I’m not at all impressed with their ability to get product out in time or refund you when asked.
