    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Meh

      This wasn't awful, and maybe I screwed up and used too much water, but I was very disappointed with the consistency of the final product. It was way more soupier than I had anticipated it would be. Luckily, as a last minute thought, I had grabbed some naan to bring with me and that did a good job of soaking up the extra juices. It wasn't bad, and I ended up eating about half of it (there is sooo much). I probably wouldn't buy again but it wasn't the worst camp food I've eaten either.

      YEEEE

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Ive said this on pretty much all my food reviews but these things are just better when theyre spicy cause otherwise youre just going to douce it in hot sauce. This one was good with out hot sauce.



      Also i just read matt pizzas review and hes got some good ideas too...

      Pair with Pilsner

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I am totally blown away by this meal. Never would I have thought something so tasty would come out of a package you fill with water. This is an excellent addition to any backpacking trip if you're into happy bellies!

      Tastes pretty good

        My wife took this on a backcountry ski camping trip. She's picky about taste so when she says it's pretty good, it is ( I mean, I guess for backpacking food). Easy to cook per instructions and portion size is as described.

        Legit

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Same 500ish calorie mark as most other dried meals but with less food. Great for the cold elevation when you need to eat but your appetite might not be there. Taste wise, this is the best dried meal ive had.

        Looking forward to this

          I got this because I often need an escape from other bland dehydrated meals. I'm pretty excited to have something with some spice to it. I have had Backpackers Pantry before and have been pleased. I'm really looking forward to this one.

          Taste bud explosion!

          Lots of flavor, a little spicy. What's not to like? Probably one of BP's best entrees. (High Uintas Wilderness)

          Taste bud explosion!

          To save space and packaging on longer trips I put the freeze dried meals in smaller Ziploc bags and "cook" them in a quart size Ziploc container w/ lid. If your Jetboil cup is big enough you could add the freeze dried meal to heated water right in that and cook it that way, but if you have the original pouch why not use that and save cleaning dishes?
