Name of hiking food website

About 7-8 years ago when I was doing lots of backpacking I was ordering dehydrated meals online and buying 10 days worth of meals at a time. I was using a website that carried all brands of food and lots of other accessories. They had an impressive selection.

Based upon the site you could tell it was a small/smallish business and not big like REI. They were probably online only.

I can't for the life of me me remember what the name of it was. It was a .com site and the name maybe consisted of works like:
Backpackers pantry
Backpackers kitchen
But not at all restricted to those.

Does anyone have any idea what it is or what it might have been?

Nevermind, I think I found it. It still exists. www.ldpcampingfoods.com

Looks like they had a bigger selection of brangs back then though: https://web.archive.org/web/20120912...mpingfoods.com

I mostly use Mountain House, so I don't know if those other brands even exist any more.

If you're looking for other freeze dried brand options, Packit Gourmet is a smaller company and I've liked all their stuff that I've tried so far

And of course there's always Hawk Vittles: http://hawkvittles.com/ .
Good stuff, and I like that most of the meals are available in one-person servings (unlike most of the large commercial brands). My only gripe with him is that the pouches aren't self-sealing.
