User Review: Backpacker's Pantry Scrambled Eggs
Source: received for testing via the Trailspace Review Corps
Price Paid: Samples provided by the manufacturer for testing and review.
For a comparative Instant Camp Eggs Cook-Off, I tested and reviewed the following packaged plain egg products:
- Adventure Egg Anywhere Scrambles,
- AlpineAire Scrambled Eggs,
- Backpacker’s Pantry Scrambled Eggs,
- Backpacker’s Pantry Organic Scrambled Eggs, and
- Cache Lake Outfitter’s Choice Scrambled Eggs.
I prepared each egg product for breakfast after early morning hikes, using the same stove and cookwear each time (the stove was an Optimus Nova, and the cookset was an anodized aluminum one with a non-stick coating from Primus). For the seasoned egg versions I added black pepper and cut-up or pre-shredded cheddar cheese.
This review focuses on Backpacker's Pantry's Scrambled Eggs.
Backpacker's Pantry Scrambled Eggs package.
Best flavor of the group, comes pre-seasoned with some salt and pepper
Very good consistency — similar to cooking fresh eggs.
Easy to prepare and cook
- My overall favorite
They aren’t fresh eggs, but I really had very little to criticize about them.
