Organic Peanut Butter & Raisin Oatmeal

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great backpacking meal that is quick to prepare, high in essential calories, and tastes great! I bought this for a recent backpacking/canoe trip that I was going on. It was very easy to prepare and tasted great. I especially like that you don't need another bowl to prepare this meal. Just heat up water to a boil and then add it to the pouch. It filled me up and gave me plenty of energy to finish my canoe trip (10+ miles). It comes with a pouch of peanuts that you are supposed to crush… Full review

Huevos Rancheros

rated 2 of 5 stars A good idea for a "change of pace" kind of backpack breakfast but rather poorly executed by Backpacker's Pantry. I would have trouble recommending this to anyone unless they really wanted some kind of alternative to plain dried eggs. Saw this at a Menard's for $4 per pouch. How bad could it be? I tested it at home in a 11" non-stick skillet so I could see what it looked like while rehydrating and cooking. The instructions say to add 1 and 1/4 cup of water, doesn't say what temperature the water… Full review

Creme Brulee

rated 4 of 5 stars Sweet, creamy and tasty dessert that is a lot like the real thing. Easy to prepare and fun to share. My son and I have always enjoyed the Mountain House Raspberry Cobbler for desserts while out camping. We are big fans of the cobbler.  ;-)  On our most recent trip we brought a new dessert along with us as well as the cobbler. We brought BP Crème Brulee. Crème Brulee is one of my favorite desserts to begin with so I was excited about trying this one. Well, I can definitely say it didn't disappoint. … Full review

Huevos Rancheros

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Freeze dried vomit. I tried this out when I camping recently. So glad I had a little extra food hanging around after trying to eat this. It was way too salty, it was grainy. Usually with Backcountry Pantry I find that you need to avoid putting the recommended amount of water or they end up too soupy. So I put not quite enough it. It tasted awful. Extremely salty, horrendously grainy and sweet. It tasted much like bile. It was dreadful. More water didn't help. With gorillas I can imagine this being… Full review

Pad See You with Chicken

rated 3 of 5 stars Not an unpleasant taste, but hardly spectacular. Okay, so I'm not Thai, nor have I lived there, but I sincerely hope they look for more flavour in their food than what you get in the Backpacker's Pantry Pad See You with Chicken. This is another of the meals I bought to use this summer, but because of bad experiences with other BP dishes it wound up being put aside until I'd eaten pretty much everything else.  It's easy to cook; just add boiling water to the bag and let it sit.  The meal is just… Full review
