Clif Chocolate Brownie Bar

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are good bars, one of my favorite flavors. Chunky and satisfying. Great for trail running. I wish they had more protein. I've tried all of the Clif flavors, and these are among my top three fav's. It's easy to enjoy while trail running or hiking. As a snack, it's quite satisfying. I wish it would have more protein though. Recommended as a treat for long days in the backcountry. Full review

Clif Cool Mint Chocolate Bar

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have two Cool Mint bars for lunch when backpacking. I add peanut butter from a squeeze tube. Not what I would eat at home for lunch but, when backpacking, they keep me going until dinner. I haven't had any digestive problems from them. And I agree that the Cool Mint Chocolate is the best flavor. Bought several last year for a trip which I couldn't go on because of family issues. Am storing them in the freezer. Has anyone had experience with freezing them? Full review

Clif Cool Mint Chocolate Bar

rated 4 of 5 stars Clif's Cool Mint Chocolate is the most flavorful Clif Bar I have encountered and has become the box I am most likely to grab off the store shelf. Filling and easy to pack, the pros slightly outweigh the cons. I don't particularly like Clif Bars. However, Clif does provide enough value to me that I buy them for caving and backpacking. There are tastier and healthier alternatives, but Clif Bars are readily available and superior for activities like caving.  What I Like about the Cool Mint Chocolate… Full review

OMeals Brown Rice, Quinoa & Lentils

rated 3 of 5 stars It's good food, heats very well, but despite company claims as the backpacking food that'll change backpacking, each meal is so heavy that they are really only good for activities like canoeing/rafting, day hiking, car camping. I stopped by REI Albuquerque to get some food for an additional setup week at my camp at Burning Man.  I got items from Mountain House, Backpacker's Pantry, etc and they had something new, self-heating OMeals, so I bought eight meals. They are ready-to-eat, not freeze-dried… Full review

Mountain House Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

rated 4 of 5 stars Crave it, even when at home. This is by far one of our favorite meals. The flavor is excellent. As with many of these meals, we add a little extra water and usually let it sit a bit longer than instructed. If you don't want to gamble on a flavor, this one is recommended. Full review

Starbucks VIA Ready Brew

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent, easy to use. The VIA packs are perfect for backcountry coffee. Tiny packaging—simply add to hot water, stir, and enjoy. Not a ton I can say other than it's good and much appreciated on a cold morning.   Full review

Heather's Choice Strawberry Vanilla Breakfast

rated 5 of 5 stars Tasty, healthy breakfast. Found at random online. Smaller outfit that specializes in backcountry meals. Gave it a try on my last adventure and was very impressed by the taste and homemade quality. Having visited the website to consider future meals, it's obvious the gal who owns and operates is very skilled, not only in food prep, but in backpacking. Will definitely try again. Full review

Mountain House Beef Stroganoff with Noodles

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent backcountry meal! My favorite of the Mountain House variety. Have sampled 4-5 different offerings, this being the overwhelming favorite. Honestly, it's really good. Part of that is that I could eat anything after a day of hiking, but the flavor is nice. From reading forums over the years, I'm not alone in declaring this one of the better dehydrated, readily available options. I don't have the time or talents to prepare a fancy meal, so I lean on these for sustenance. Never been disappointed… Full review

Backpacker's Pantry Chicken Cashew Curry

rated 2 of 5 stars Pretty bad. Will not buy again. I love the Mountain House staples (Lasagna, Chili Mac, Stroganoff), but I'm always looking for something different. Problem is MH has meat that is sized to how you'd cook at home, while Backpackers Pantry has these tiny little diced cubes; there's no comparison. BP does package its meals well though; rounded corners and less air than MH. (I poke holes with a pin in MH meals to remove the air and then tape over them. Also I cut off the corner points to keep the from… Full review
