Santa Fe Breakfast Corn Pudding

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the best pre-packaged breakfast that I have eaten on the trail. I have sampled many other dehydrated and freeze dried breakfast items over the years, and have not repurchased any of them. The Packit Gourmet (PIG) Santa Fe Breakfast Pudding is the first one that will be a regular in my trail food rotation. Summary: I usually test gear multiple times, but this breakfast meal was so good a couple of weeks ago that I thought I would share it with everyone before the colder months really set… Full review

Mango-Kale Jump-Start Smoothie

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Despite ALL of the rest of their products being THE BEST, this one's a swing and a miss. I FINALLY FOUND IT!!! A Packit Gourmet product that I don't love... Just gotta say that I really miss the "Eat a Peach Fruit Smoothie". The berry and tropical are BOTH GREAT, but that peach smoothie was my favorite. One of these fruit smoothies, a Clif bar (or equivalent), and a cup of coffee in the morning and I'm ready for the trail.   And now, as the late, great Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story...

Dottie's Chicken & Dumplings

rated 5 of 5 stars Finally, pack food that doesn't taste like pack food. FANTASTIC!!!

Three grown men could barely finish two servings. Price: Better pricing than the brands you'll find in stock at "insert your favorite backpacking supply store here". Honestly, after using the Packit Gourmet meals, snacks, drinks, and condiments for three… Full review

Jamaican Peanut Porridge

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I had high hopes for something a little more exotic than instant oat meal but just as easy, but this isn't it. The taste was good but the texture left me wanting. I wanted to be able to mix it up a little at breakfast time but I still wanted an easy to prepare meal.  The peanut porridge seem to be just what I was looking for, easy cook, different spices and something I never had before.   When the porridge arrived I was a little surprised that is was finely ground and not a coarser mixture of… Full review

Dottie's Chicken & Dumplings

rated 5 of 5 stars I have been using this company's products for several seasons and have not been let down. I tried Dottie's on the John Muir Trail this season and loved it. I introduced a compadre to the product on the trip as well and he raved on about how good it was for backpack food. I have tried most of the standard brands and this one beats them all.   Full review
