Freeze dried vomit.


  • Lightweight


  • Disgusting

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 more palatable, but this was awful. I would strongly advise against it.


LOL! I'll make sure to avoid it!

Tried this on a recent backpacking trip with mixed results.

Prep is a pain for those of us who don't like fussing with food and requires that you scramble the rehydrated contents in you pot or pan -- which may test your ability to find a simmer setting on your Pocket Rocket.

Looks a bit mushy when you're cooking it and it definitely benefits from rolling it into a tortilla.

It actually has pretty good flavor, but it's nothing like Huevos and has more the flavor and consistency of taco meat. I'd probably give it 5 stars if it was repackaged as taco filling.
