Steve's Paleogoods Dried Wild Blueberries

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great addition in terms of variety and taste to the trail food/carbs category. Steve's dried blueberries taste great and have a consistency similar to raisins, as opposed to freeze dried blueberries I have tried. These reportedly pack 24 grams of carbs into once ounce. I have been trying to steer away from energy bars lately. They can be dry, hard, odd-tasting, and they feel pretty artificial. I would much prefer a bag of dried fruit and nuts, maybe some chocolate chunks or m&ms mixed in. Full review

The New Primal Spicy 100% Grass-Fed Beef Jerky

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great flavor and texture from a responsible company. I really like outdoor foods which are responsibly sourced, artificial ingredient free, and have short ingredient lists. I think that food is getting too far from its roots and I believe that, while most health problems are induced by sedentary lives, overly processed foods also play a small factor in the overall decline in American fitness.  Because of this and my inherent frugality I have made my own jerky ever since I was old enough to carry… Full review

YumButter Superfood Organic Sunflower Butter

rated 5 of 5 stars This nut butter is a delicious high-calorie and high-protein snack for the trail. It combines sunflower butter with goji berries, hemp hearts, and chia seeds for extra nutrients. Pairs well with apples, but is delicious on its own too! I first found YumButter at a Wegman's a few months ago. It has since become my favorite trail snack! YumButter makes three flavors of their YumButter Go snack pouches (Peanut butter, almond butter, and sunflower butter).  While all are delicious in their own right,… Full review

Skout Organic Raw Pumpkin Seeds - Jalapeno Salsa

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing raw pumpkin seed snack! There isn't all that much to say about these — they're delicious! I received a bag of these a few weeks ago in a care package from my brother. The jalapeno salsa is by far the best pumpkin seed flavor I have ever tried. I really need to learn how to make these at home. And until I get that spice mix exactly right, I'm going to be making someone over at Skout very happy. TASTE: These weren't nearly as spicy as I imagined from the name (in fact, not at all!). They… Full review

Crown Prince Sardines in Spring Water

rated 4 of 5 stars Great used as a mix-in protein source in meals or for snacking right out of the bag. Single serving portion in an easy to open bag. Worth their weight for day hikers, climbers, or those on longer trails and especially so for those looking to add fat and protein to their diet. Crown Prince is pretty well known for their canned sardines, but they recently came out with several varieties sold in easy to open pouches. They can be somewhat hard to find as not all grocery stores carry them, but they are… Full review

Crown Prince Sardines in Lousiana Hot Sauce

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Not an especially great hot sauce, but it has plenty of kick. Great used as a mix-in protein source in meals or for snacking right out of the bag.
