Patagonia Provisions Organic Green Lentil Soup

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very simple organic soup, spiced right, that summons the memory of Americanized Indian food to my palate. It’s a little pricey for dehydrated soup but a worthy splurge. Ingredients Organic Dehydrated Lentils, Organic Bulgur Wheat, Organic Dehydrated Chopped Onion, Salt, Organic Spices, Organic Dehydrated Green Bell Pepper, Organic Dehydrated Minced Garlic, Organic Dehydrated Red Bell Pepper, Organic Onion Powder, Organic Ground Rice Hulls, Organic Yeast Extract, Organic Sunflower Oil Nutrition… Full review

Mountain House Beef Stew

rated 5 of 5 stars I recently received an exciting package from Mountain House, an amazing company which provides food selections for hikers, preppers, travelers and even military usage in simplistic freeze dried form. I received a sample of this product from Mountain House in exchange for a review. Information & Specs: Name: Mountain House Beef Stew Servings: 2.5 Serving Pouch Shipping Information: From the time I corresponded with Mountain House to the day I received the item there was less than a week’s wait.

Larabar Cashew Cookie

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A straightforward, no-nonsense trail snack that has become a personal favorite. Taste: With only two ingredients (cashews and dates), the taste is as one might expect (surprise, it tastes like cashews and dates!). I’ve never been a huge fan of raw dates, but these are much more enjoyable than raw dates, even though there is a distinct date flavor. As for cashews, I could eat them all day, everyday, so this bar was particularly intriguing for me. From what I’ve seen, most other trail bars/snacks… Full review

Patagonia Provisions Apricot + Almond Bar

rated 4 of 5 stars A non-GMO, organic energy bar that tastes great and has a backpacker-acceptable caloric density of 100 calories per ounce. The small size lends it to stashing in small pockets (but not so much for satiety). These are expensive, just as most organic, non-GMO products are. Here are the ingredients as listed on the package: Organic Dried Apricot, Organic Dried Pear, Organic Dried Apple, Organic Almond, Organic Apple Juice Concentrate, Organic Baobab Fruit Powder, Organic Black Chia Seeds Here is the… Full review

Tailwind Rebuild

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Tailwind Rebuild drink powder is easy to mix, tastes good, is digestible and provided an ideal balance of carbohydrate, protein and electrolytes to replenish the body immediately after exercise. I’m a big fan of recovery snacks and Tailwind Nutrition has developed an easy solution for replenishing needed nutrients efficiently with the new Rebuild drink powder. The recovery period is often overlooked for long-distance backpackers but the concept has been around sports nutrition for a long time. Full review

OMeals Smoked Cheese Bites

rated 2 of 5 stars A trail snack that sounded much better than it tasted. Texture was also unpleasant. Taste:Generally speaking, I really like cheese, particularly smoked cheeses like Swiss, Gouda, and cheddar. While I would never expect a dehydrated cheese snack intended for backcountry use to taste the exactly same as a freshly smoked cheese, I do expect there to be a close resemblance. However, instead of smoked cheese, this snack tastes a bit more like burned cheese with plenty of salt. I asked a friend to try… Full review

Nature’s Coffee Kettle Colombian Coffee

rated 4 of 5 stars Camp coffee is required for my mornings. I usually do a pour over when car camping or instant coffee when backpacking. Nature's Kettle is an alternative that produced a good cup of coffee with a straightforward brewing process I received the Nature's Kettle coffee from another site in return for an honest review. The brewing process was straightforward. Put the coffee pack in the top, add hot water and let steep. I needed to pour the coffee through a second time to get the strength I wanted. The… Full review

Lorissa's Kitchen Premium Steak Strips

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These steak strips (jerky) are tender, moist, and flavorful. Lorissa’s Kitchen premium steak strips are great for boosting protein on the trail with 10 grams of protein, 2 grams of fat, 6 grams of carbohydrate, and 80 calories per serving. The strips are made with 100% grass-fed beef with no added nitrites, MSG, preservatives or growth hormones. The texture of the jerky was good; moist, tender, and chewy. I always prefer the plain flavors of jerky products, especially on a long, high-altitude… Full review

Kate's Tiki Bar

rated 5 of 5 stars These bars taste good and have a good, crunchy texture. One of my favorite discoveries this year was Kate’s brand. I have burned out on so many energy bars that I’m filled with dread every time I have to stock up. Kate’s saved the day with a bar that has actual crunch and delicious flavor. I quickly tire of the soft textures of so many backpacking foods but Kate’s bars use organic brown rice crisps (think Rice Krispies) to provide a satisfying crunch. All of her products use gluten-free,… Full review
