maybe i'm a bit off but i quite enjoyed the MRE's i tried not to long ago, from what i understand you just gotta try them all ahead of time and figure out what you like and dont like.

wouldn't perservatives and taste be the least of your worries on a big wall anyways?

Taste does matter. Some foods I can't eat in the morning (when you most need calories) and other foods can be hard to eat when it is hot and/or you are suffering dehydration.

Preservatives are not automatically bad, but imagine your ascent is a day slower than planned and you are down to a 2 liters of water a day and all you have left is some meal in a box that has 3000mg of sodium. Then come back and tell me that preservatives don't matter.

Checking foods out ahead of time is good. Big walls usually have enough suffering that you might as well lug up foods you will enjoy (given the conditions on the wall).
