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 Day Sunshine bowl

rated 5 of 5 stars Oatmeal again??? I realize that it seems like I review food here a lot. Okay, one of the reasons I hike is to justify the food I eat. Having been a long time fan of Packit Gourmet, I was eager to try this breakfast option. A quick trip to Lassen Volcanic NP was a great excuse. I like my oatmeal to be kind of busy, and the Good Day Sunshine Bowl did not disappoint. Aside from rolled and steel-cut oats, this cereal includes mangos, currants, cranberries, pecans, almonds, coconut, quinoa, chia, pumpkin… Full review

Southwest Black Bean & Corn Salad

rated 5 of 5 stars One of my favorite backcountry meals. Great when you don't feel like "cooking". One of my very favorite backcountry meals is this black bean and corn salad from Packit Gourmet. It's a flavorful, no hassle meal, which should be a part of your backpack on every trip. Packit Gourmet classifies this as a "lunch" in their catalog, but I have found that it packs plenty of nutritional punch when paired with byo tortillas. One of the nice things about this meal is, that it is a cold-prep meal, so you don't… Full review

Trailside Black Bean and Cheese Burrito

rated 4 of 5 stars Another affordable, filling, easy to make meal from Packit Gourmet. I haven't had a single thing from them that I've been disappointed with. Always full of flavor without the giant dose of sodium like many competitors. Taste: I was expecting a fairly bland burrito but was pleasantly surprised to find some good flavors hiding inside. Lots of onion, cumin, and garlic pop. I chose to heat it up with some hot sauce I brought along as well as a small packet of sour cream. This was a nice change from… Full review

Texas State Fair Chili

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a staple in my pack now for over a year—hydrates well, tastes almost as good as home cooked chili, and fills the corners without leaving me overstuffed. I haven't found a better dinner entree, except packing in fresh food. I finally decided to review what I consider to be one of the best prepackaged dehydrated meals on the market: Packit Gourmet's Texas State Fair Chili (TSFC from here on). TSFC is easy to prepare, and provides good, satisfying taste and nutrition on the trail. The natural… Full review
