AlpineAire Foods Chicken Tropicana

A tasty, dehydrated offering that succeeds where most others fail. I was very surprised when I saw that some of the AlpineAire offerings received low scores. My first experience with their food was perfect. For the most part, when I use dehydrated meals, the recommended water amount either turns it to soup or leaves it extremely al dente. That was not the case here.  I tried the Chicken Tropicana and it was great. The water was completely absorbed and the food itself was well hydrated and recognizable,… Full review

Trailtopia Jambalaya

Trailtopia Jambalaya has a good taste but a strange aftertaste. Eating the two-serving package for dinner around 7 p.m. filled me up enough that I wasn’t hungrier than usual 12 hours later when it was time for breakfast. I brought two Trailtopia meal entrées on an overnight campout at the summit of Coburn Mountain, Maine, last weekend, and had the Jambalaya for dinner. Before I get into the meal itself, what I really liked was the packaging—the top is on a long side so you don’t have to stick… Full review

Mountain House Beef Stew

I decided to use bread, Idahoan Mashed Potatoes, and Mountain House Beef Stew to create a dish I called Brotato Stew. For a trip I was provided one package of Mountain House Beef Stew to review. The challenge was to create a dish using the beef stew as an ingredient. With one package of beef stew, a package of Idahoan Mashed Potatoes, and some Ciabatta bread I create Brotato Stew. Bread + Potato + Beef Stew. I divided up the meal amongst six people and ate the meal as an appetizer. It ended up tasting… Full review

Packit Gourmet Dottie's Chicken & Dumplings

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

AlpineAire Foods Rice Burrito Bowl with Beef

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

Mountain House Hearty Stew with Beef

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

Mountain House Homestyle Turkey Dinner Casserole

This really tastes like Thanksgiving!! As a member of another website, I am sometimes given products to test in exchange for a review. During one of my last backpacking trips I rewarded myself for the 8+ mile hike into the campground with Mountain House's new 2-Serving Homestyle Turkey Dinner Casserole. I’ll admit that initially after reading the description I was a little skeptical, however, I think the best way of describing this meal is that it tastes like Thanksgiving!! The large chucks of… Full review

Mountain House Homestyle Turkey Dinner Casserole

A meal that conjures up memories of sitting around Mom's dining room table at Thanksgiving! I have used Mountain House products over the years for front and backcountry excursions...and enjoy the variety of meals offered. I was given this Mountain House Homestyle Turkey Dinner Casserole to try in exchange for a review. I always appreciate being given free food. I felt the two-serving size did adequately satisfy my wife and I, as we used this meal while camping on our 35th anniversary. I spare no… Full review
