Doesn't get any better!
Be prepared to lick the inside of the package clean. So yummy! Super easy to prepare too.
This welcome end of the day treat not only tasted great but was a great palate pleaser.

When you've just finished your third days hike and just set up camp; there's nothing like digging into this dessert!!
Even though it says 4 servings, I find it a perfect serving for 2. Or; a serving just for me!
This is a great addition to a Mountain House dinner while packing. Had this one for a 10 day trip and enjoyed one each night. It was simple to make (like all mountain house meals) and tasted really really good.
Light, fluffy, and real blueberry flavor. Nice crunchy topping adds just the right texture. The best freeze-dried dessert we've ever tried. The package holds 4 reasonable servings, as advertised.
quite tasty...does look bad when you are mixing it up but a great taste all the same
Looks can be deciving!
This is an easy sweet add to your dinner in the backcountry. It does not after cooked look all that great, but after a hard day on the trail and you are resting your dogs, just about anything will do. Surprisingly, this does taste great and is really good to eat after a long day hiking to your favorite spot. All of the Mountain House meals I have tried so far have been tasty and will try more out on the next adventure.
not worth the mess
Looks gross, but tastes great!
I was really hesitant about this one at first because when you mix the blueberry topping in with the cheesecake, it looks really nasty. Surprisingly, it tasted wonderful! We probably would have eaten every bite, but we got rained out after dinner and tried eating this for dessert after breakfast the next morning...a bit too sweet for breakfast. Suggestion to Mountain House: make your bags burnable!!!
