Granola with Blueberries & Milk

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite breakfast when I feel like splurging on something other than instant Quaker oatmeal. I tried this last year and I loved it. It was sweet and filling. Granola and blueberries for breakfast! Yummy treat on the trail! Taste: Delicious! Price: A bit high for instant breakfast food Packaging: Takes up a lot of space in a bear canister, especially when most of the meals in there are freeze dried.  Fulfilling: Very much so!  Calories: Packed with calories to get you going in the morning or… Full review

Chili Mac with Beef

rated 5 of 5 stars A great meal, just let it re-hydrate a little longer than directions advise in anything other than warm conditions. Excellent meal. The spice adds a little feeling of warmth in cool conditions. Taste is excellent. I find increasing re-hydration time by 5-15 minutes (especially in colder weather) improves the foods consistency. Not a true two-person meal. I think you need an entree per person, especially if you've been carrying a pack all day. If backpacking as a couple, an entree like this with… Full review

Lasagna with Meat Sauce Pro-Pak

rated 5 of 5 stars The perfect meal to store for an unforeseen extra day on the trail. I always carry one breakfast and one entree for each day on the trail. The breakfast is usually a Granola and Milk. The entree always a pouch (Chili Mac, Beef Stroganoff, etc). If I have a long day of hiking  I might have a vegetable pasta entree for breakfast. Lunch is usually snacks on the move (jerky, candy, cereal bars, Clif bars, etc). I like to carry a Pro-Pak as insurance in case I have to spend an extra night on the trail. Full review

Chicken and White Bean Chili

rated 5 of 5 stars What a suprise! My girlfriend picked this out when shopping for our backpacking trip, but when I was pulling out meals and I asked what she wanted she took my lasagna! So I got stuck with this. It didn't seam appetizing to me at all, but I was so wrong! I loved it! Great green chili sauce! I've never even heard of chili made with green sauce. I love their chili mac, but this was a whole different world. The beans were good, there was tons of chicken, and I was full and happy. I buy this one every… Full review

Beef Stroganoff with Noodles

rated 5 of 5 stars Tasty. My go-to backpacking entree. I brought this on a New Years two-day backpacking trip to Harriman State Park in New York. I arrived at my site late afternoon. I boiled water, poured it into the pouch, sealed it, and due to the early winter sunset time, I let it sit as I set up camp and gathered firewood. I got back to the meal after letting it re-hydrate for about a half hour (the temperature was about 40 degrees), and the food melted in my mouth. It was thoroughly delicious. I always add 5-15… Full review
