Summary

This is a great backpacking meal that is quick to prepare, high in essential calories, and tastes great!

Pros

  • Simple to prepare
  • Great tasting
  • Lightweight
  • Eat right from the pouch

Cons

  • Pouch is hard to eat from, messy

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 up a little and add into the mix. I think as an added treat you could bring some other dry ingredients and add it to the oatmeal such as dried cranberries, or chocolate chips.  

My only complaint is that the pouch is tall, so eating straight from the pouch can be messy. No matter how hard I tried I had to stick my hand inside to get the last of the oatmeal from the bottom of the pouch. This left my hands a bit sticky.
