Packit Gourmet Dottie's Chicken & Dumplings

rated 3 of 5 stars Good flavor, but terrible aftertaste. I purchased a large variety of different meals from several manufacturers to find what we would like to bring on several upcoming bikepacking excursions. This was the worst so far. The initial flavor is good, but there is a strong chemical aftertaste. We separated the meat and found it to be the culprit. My wife purchased freeze-dried chicken breast from another company and it had the same chemical taste. Almost like it was marinated in paint thinner before… Full review

Good To-Go Kale and White Bean Stew

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Vile, horrid and unfit for consumption. There's nothing redeemable to say about this, even though it was "free" as part of a sample pack...couldn't even return it for credit. I added bacon bits to try and taste something—the white beans or kale even absorbed that flavor. Full review

Good To-Go Kale and White Bean Stew

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good To-Go Kale and White Bean Soap is good option for people looking for a reasonably lightweight backpacking food that tastes and looks like real food (because it is), is good for you, is gluten-free, and a vegan product. Overview First off I need to confess that I am not in any way a foodie and am one of those people who get excited when the McRib is back on the menu at McDonalds, so keep that in mind as I share my thoughts on Good To-Go’s Kale and White Bean Stew. The Good To-Go Kale and White… Full review

AlpineAire Foods Rice Burrito Bowl with Beef

rated 5 of 5 stars A tasty, filling meal you can be nom nom nomming in 15 minutes. Ingredients are all FOOD, no added chemicals—all minerals and nutrients are naturally occurring in the ingredients. Received as part of my Reviewer of the Month prize package. Today I went snowshoeing for a couple hours, and decided to bring along the AlpineAire Rice Burrito Bowl Flavored With Beef and eat it for review. From the pouch front: Cilantro lime rice flavored with real beef, black beans, corn, red & green bell peppers… Full review

Nomad Nutrition Indian Red Lentil Stew

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A tasty Indian stew that reminds me of a classic (but slightly less spicy) Dal. As I’ve written with the other Nomad reviews: this is my new favorite brand of dehydrated backpacking food. Ingredients: Potatoes, Carrots, Red Lentils*, Coconut Milk*, Onions, Peas, Sundried Tomatoes*, Olive Oil*, Garlic*, Spices*, Sea Salt*.   *Certified Organic Ingredient. Nutrition: (for the 100-gram package) Calories 680, Carbs 93g, Sugars (10 g), Protein 24g Prologue: When I was messaging back and forth with… Full review

Patagonia Provisions Organic Savory Grains Mushroom + KAMUT

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a tasty organic grain blend with a nice earthy flavor and good protein (15 grams per package). I think it's best suited as a side dish. Fishermen, this would sit nicely beside a fire-roasted brook trout! Ingredients: Organic Kamut Khorasan Bulgur Wheat, Organic Bulgur Wheat, Organic Dehydrated Portabella Mushrooms, Organic Shiitake Mushroom Powder, Organic Red Quinoa, Organic Dehydrated Chopped Onion, Salt, Organic Yeast Extract, Organic Onion Powder, Organic Ground Rice Hulls, Organic Sunflower… Full review

Nomad Nutrition Irish Shepherd's Pie

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very familiar tasting and well-balanced meal, this one is like the backpacking equivalent of comfort food. A great bonus is the 225 calories per ounce which is excellent caloric density for carrying on a long trek. As I’ve written with the other Nomad reviews: this is my new favorite brand of dehydrated backpacking food. Ingredients: Potatoes, Green Lentils*, Carrots, Coconut Milk*, Onions, Peas, Corn, Sundried Tomatoes*, Olive Oil*, Garlic*, Spices*, Sea Salt*. *Certified Organic Ingredient. Full review

Mountain House Hearty Stew with Beef

rated 5 of 5 stars This beef stew tempts the tummy and the tastebuds! I occasionally have the opportunity to test amazing products from incredible companies in exchange for a review, and this time, I had the pleasure of trying out Mountain House Beef Stew, but on top of the product testing, I had a culinary challenge! I was asked to create a new dish from this freeze dried meal, and my tastebuds were rewarded! This beef stew is a medley of tummy pleasing comfort foods wrapped into a meal that's perfect for a blustery… Full review

Nomad Nutrition Kathmandu Curry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A tasty curry dish that surprised me with its freshness; this one doesn’t taste rehydrated. I’ve never knowingly had a Nepalese-style curry, but if this is representative, I’m a fan. I just wish there was more in the package. As I’ll mention in all the Nomad reviews: I consider this the best brand of dehydrated, prepackaged food I’ve tried to date. It’s an expensive but high quality product. Prologue: When I was messaging back and forth with Alicia (Trailspace Co-Founder and Editor)… Full review
