Great for camping, this is a hot meal that will satisfy with fantastic flavor, just like Thanksgiving dinner!
- Easy to use
- Bulky in the backpack
As a member of another website, sometimes I receive products in exchange for an honest review and that is the case with this turkey dinner. I had the pleasure of saving this for my first night on the Appalachian Trail at Springer Mountain, Georgia.
The flavor was amazing...just like a Thanksgiving meal. I'm a chef, so I'm picky, and I thought that it was very satisfying and the seasoning was not overwhelming. I was concerned that the stuffing might be soggy, but was very please when it turned out just like it does when you cook it from scratch.
The package says 2 servings, but I was so hungry after a full day of hiking, I ate the whole thing! There was plenty to share if you had a smaller appetite, or something else to accompany the meal, but was filling if you wanted the whole thing at once or had a larger appetite.
I'd pack this again in a heartbeat.
Only thing I don't like is how much space they take up in my pack, but considering the ease of use and the quality of the end product, I'll sacrifice some pack space for a good "home-cooked" meal now and then. Not to mention the fact that since the bag has a zipper on it, it makes a great "trash" container that you can pack out of the camp.
