Good portion, but not very exciting to eat. Functional if you are hungry. It just didn't live up to expectations.

Pros

  • Big portion
  • Rehydrated well

Cons

  • Not spicy
  • Not Italian sausage
  • Not Italian sauce
  • Excess packaging

Another mid-trip on-trail review, so please pardon the format.

This meal sounded good on the label, but was not very joyful in camp. Filled the belly, but not with happiness. 

Instructions & Ingredients:

 I tried using the EZ fill method and regretted it. Use the full 2 cups of water.

 It looked and smelled promising when I opened the package.

After adding water and mixing I was looking forward to the eating part, but waited for it to soak.

Then upon digging in I found that the package was better than the dinner. The sausage was like breakfast meat, not spicy. The sauce was tomato and garlic but not Italian. 

Test Conditions:

Somewhere on the Long Trail. I  remember eating it but can't figure out where or when heh.

Conclusions:

Sounds good on the label but this is not a bag of joy. Definitely filling and not terrible, just boring. Also too much package for the product. I know companies want to be seen on the shelf but I don't want to carry their crap.

Bottom line from me on this one is you can eat it, but don't expect joy.

About the Author

John (LoneStranger) enjoys both solo adventures and family escapades on the trails and waters of Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Alone or with his wife and daughter the preference is always for places without people where you can hear the breeze or watch a patch of sun slide through camp. He and his family help maintain a section of the Cohos Trail in northern New Hampshire and are seasoned veterans of Maine's Baxter State Park. On his own, John likes to push himself to always think a little bigger, higher, or farther and has hopes to do some longer distance trails. If you meet him on a remote summit you'll recognize him by the Trailspace hat on his head and the cheese and sausage he's stuffing into his smiling face.

I just tried their Kung Pao Chicken and it was horrid. No real flavor, and frankly it just didn't taste good. Alpenaire has been (for me) rather hit or miss with their meals. But thanks John for this review. Another one to pass up.
