    a trail staple

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This never fails to be a treat at the end of the trail on a hot day. It's a sweet simple snack. I never cease being impressed by Mountain House's offerings, variety is the spice of life. (Also keeps the wife happy after 5 days of backpacking)

    You want it

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Carry extras to surprise your group at the end of the day and they'll love you long time.

    Great treat at the end of a tough day. Although keep in mind it's a sponge. The other week I was in a low water environment, really had to cut back on our water intake for some time. Eating this was probably a mistake. You can't exactly eat it in the typical sense, you basically just bite a piece off, an let your saliva work its magic without chewing. Of course, if you're parched, this won't work out too well.

    Otherwise, it really is amazing, the taste is on point with the real thing, only the texture is different (as typical with freeze dried food).

    Ice Cream Goodness....

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    The whole concept of this is baffling. But so good. I truthfully wouldn't recommend packing this way 'out there' because by the time you are ready to eat it at camp it will be broken into a powder & small pieces. But whatever... it is still good.

    Definitely worth trying once.

    I personally buy these every time in need a couple extra dollars to push me over that $50 free shipping limit.

    Well, holy crap...

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    It is, indeed, a freeze dried ice cream sandwich. I don't say this to state the obvious. I say this because it is a thing of beauty. It is a school lunch, memories of childhood, dried out ice cream sandwich.

    I don't really take them in my bear can and into the backcountry. They are as brittle as a brick of climbing chalk, and about as dry. It will shatter into tiny fragments that you will spend an hour Hoovering off your shirt with your mouth. You will have sticky bits of it in your beard (if you have a beard). If you don't... I pity you, because those latent beard bits of dried ice cream sandwich are also a thing of beauty.

    Buy one. Amaze your friends and peers. Impress your boss. The pieces you find in your sofa or bellybutton a week or so later will only pay testament to your good taste and refinement.

      Rather than write a small review for each individual item I recently purchased I thought I would share it all in one concise review. (Note with most Mountain House I add 2-3 oz less than it recommends)

        Second only to the Mountain House Neapolitan Ice Cream, I always throw in a couple of these with every BC order. I have to admit I have never actually taken them camping - they don't last long enough to get packed...

        Novelty, not practical, but tasty

          I was surprised to find that you don't add water to this, but after trying it, I was pleasantly surprised. It tastes like a real ice cream sandwich, albeit in a chalky non-ice cream kind of way. The taste is spot on, but the ice cream is more like a vanilla flavored lucky charm. Have some water nearby or just let it melt in your mouth. Descent to satisfy a sweet tooth, but way too expensive and bulky to take again.

          And they float

            Yep, definitely a novelty. Tastes just like an ice cream sandwich, but you better be really into dessert to bother, and there are definitely more satisfying sweets out there to choose from. The flavor is more or less there, although it's not going to be anywhere near as rewarding as the real thing. It's like a giant, brittle vanilla Lucky Charm block that is almost guaranteed to be shattered into little pieces by the time you pack it and eat it. Sort of dissolves in your mouth instead of melting. It's funny to see it come out of the package, so it does tend to lift your spirits since you can't help but laugh because it's so bizarre. Pretty good, worth a try just to check out, too much packaging for what it is. If the kids had their way, it would be all they would eat.

            Really good, but pricey

              Everybody needs to eat at least one of these in their lifetime, it's just plain good! I do agree that the cost is better spent on something like cookies where you'll get more bang for your buck, but I imagine part of the cost is for the novelty.

              Not very tasty

                I was excited to try this based on the good reviews, but I was pretty underwhelmed. It was just ok...edible, but I definitely won't be buying again. It's just as easy to carry something more tasty, like some cookies.
