Price Paid: $6.49
A quick and filling meal for a backpacking adventure. Could be a little tastier
- Great packaging
- Easy to prepare
- Spices not consistent
My son and I took this item on a backpacking adventure to use as our dinner. I like the fact that the item is vacuum packed and dried so it weighs almost nothing. It uses boiling water to re-hydrate and prepare so that makes it a snap. It was a simple process to prepare this meal and I was looking forward to it.
However, when I opened the packaging it was LOADED with RED PEPPERS!!! Why is it that manufactures insist on putting red peppers into everything? I personally do not like the flavor of red peppers and had I known that it contained them I probably would have chosen a different item. My fault for not reading the packaging more closely.
So, after waiting the required amount of time to 'cook' the meal we dug in. It tasted OK but I really couldn't find much 'chicken' in this meal. I think I found about 5 or 6 tiny pieces of chicken throughout the entire two servings. The meal tasted OK, but I found the taste was inconsistent (perhaps I should have mixed it more).
Overall, I probably won't get this item again.
