Taste: This granola breakfast is finger-licking good! The granola reflects the rich brown sugar and coconut taste, along with whole milk. Sweet and salty, the almonds and salt work well together to balance the sweetness of the organic blueberries.
Testing four new Backpacker’s Pantry meals has shown a sweeping improvement in their products! Kudos to Backpacker's Pantry, coming from an avid backpacker that has been cooking and dehydrating his own meals for over three years!
Prep: Very little is needed in preparing this powerful meal. Tear open, remove the oxygen absorber, and add 1 cup/240mL of water. Stir it up, and eat! Note: The leftover pouch will still have plenty of sweet residue, so be sure to rinse the packaging well to get all the calories, and prevent hungry animals from following you!
Energy/Satiety: This is an extremely satisfying breakfast! As typical with my hiking routine, I like to break camp early, and hike an hour or two before stopping to shed layers and eat breakfast. I estimate that this morning I ate breakfast around 8 a.m., and pushed on into the early afternoon before lunchtime. This meal would be the top of my list if I were to recommend a single dehydrated meal to a hiker that wants to keep those feet moving one foot in front of another…
Claims: This product is described as "Traditional small batch granola baked with real butter, almonds, coconut & freeze-dried blueberries in rBST free milk".
Note: rBST is a product primarily given to dairy cattle to increase milk production.
Backpacker’s Pantry claims to be an innovation leader in delivering the finest tasting foods to outdoor enthusiasts worldwide. "Our lightweight, delicious meals are packed with nutrition to fuel even the most extreme adventure, and they require only minimal preparation to enjoy!" I believe these claims to be valid, however I now feel that the best pre-made dehydrated meals are much closer-than-ever to everyday good old-fashioned home cooking!
Packaging: Backpacker’s Pantry bags undergo a nitrogen flush, a vacuum seal, and each package contains an oxygen absorber yielding their pouches with granola products a 3-year shelf life. The packaging is made from a non-recyclable BPE free material, allowing the food to be cooked in the bag.
Best For: This product is ideal for any wants who doesn’t want to take time for a relaxing breakfast. If time is a precious commodity, this is a quick and easy way to get the goods in, and aim at the main goal. For me, it is to HIKE.
Conclusion: For those who are compelled to spend as many hours on the trail as possible, this is one of the best available products to help you get there! As previously stated, this is a simple, just add water, DELICIOUS meal! Many thanks to the people at Backpacker’s Pantry for the opportunity to test this product for the Trailspace Gear Review Corps!
