Yummy!

Flavor packed meal, filling, enough for two! I added extra chili flakes and was completely satisfied. If you like Asian food, you won't be disappointed. I didn't have any problems with crunchy noodles. Also, I brought extra pbu but didn't use it-it was tasty as is and I didn't want to lose the other favors to the pbu.

Almost restaurant quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

For better or worse, i think i've had equal quality pad thai in a restaurant! It could be because of poor restaurant choice or just being cold, tired and hungry...
If you like Pad Thai, you won't be let down. Its very good. Enough to share as well with this one.

Delicious.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This meal is a favorite for my buddies and myself, especially, if you are burning a ton of calories on your trip.... This meal can easily feed two or one very hungry person. It is tasty and doesn't get boring halfway through. I say buy a dozen of em'! You will want to use a little less water and commit to the full time give or take 10 mins... that way you are avoiding Pad Thai soup Al Dente.

Pad Thai for the WIN!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pad thai is easily comparable to the pad thai offered at Noodles & Co! After a long day of hiking I wasn't about to share this meal, but had it been a short day hike, this would be the perfect amount for two people. I used a little less water than directed and let it set for about 5 more minutes, the noodles were still a little crunchy, but everything else was perfect!

good

used it for a breakfast on the AT, good to have the peanut butter and the peanuts on the top. Does need at least 15 mins for noodles to "cook". As a gross after use result, definitely "cleaned" out the "system"

Noodles a little crunchy

Tried out this product tonight and can't complain about the taste. The peanuts added an awesome crunch to this dish. The only drawback is that even after letting the food reconsitute for 20+ minutes, the noodles were still slightly crunchy. Not too big of deal, and it could probably be fixed by added just a little more boiling water halfway through the required "waiting period."

As was mentioned with previous reviews, adding a little extra peanut butter would make this even better.

Delish!

As far as dehydrated meals go, the Pad Thai definitely rates in my top 5. The flavor is spot-on and it even comes with a little package of crushed peanuts that can be added to finish off the meal (don't eat the peanuts separately... plastic bag be damned, you can tell taste that they've been sitting in dehydrated PadThai noodles).

Just a few notes: The package calls for 2.25 cups of water, but use just over 2 cups (2.05?) unless you want Pad Thai soup. Also, the package comes with peanut butter that is added along with the water, but it is too small an amount for an ingredient that is responsible for 80% of the flavor in this package. You might want to bring a little extra PB to make this just right. I added 1 extra single-serving peanut butter packet from the cafeteria at work the second time I made this and it tasted INFINITELY better.

Pad thai anywhere

When you're in the backcountry this will surely taste restaurant quality.

Mmmmm

I have had a good amount of backpackers pantry meals and this one is definitely on the "buy again" list. if you like pad thai this is definitely a good bet, it comes with everything, even a package of peanut butter that you can add to the mix to give it that authentic peanut taste. Good stuff.

YUM

I am closing in on finishing up my section hiking of the AT in New England (151 miles left). This meal has been my favorite thus far, great flavor and it has ~1000 calories. So many of the other meals have only 1/2 the calories. Happy trails!
