    Eating well in the backcountry just got easier.

    If you own a cookstove or even just a pot and some matches, the Forever Young Macaroni and Cheese is the way to go. Lightweight, compact, and super easy to prepare, this meal offers two servings at a weight of only 7 ounces.. The meals are packaged in resealable foil pouches. To prepare a meal, just add a couple cups of hot water right to the pouch. A few minutes later you're ready to chow.

    Delicious!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this for my mom, who is vegetarian and looking for meals for long treks. She is testing out meals beforehand to make sure they taste good. She said this tastes better than she expected! As another reviewer mentioned, it did take some extra stirring to make this more mac & cheesey.

    Definitely worth bringing on your trip

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

    Pretty good mac & cheese. Wished it had some meat, but it's not a deal breaker

    classic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    You can't go wrong with mac and cheese so i would buy this if i were you. its feels you up and makes you feel like a kid again. After i ate it next thing i new i was playing arrow roulette and shooting my fiends with a bb gun.
    CLASSIC

    Deliciously good

    I took this meal down to Escalante last weekend and this was my first time having this meal. I was very impressed and I would definitely buy it again. Tastes just like some Mac n Cheese you would eat at home.

    Had better

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

    Yes, it is subjective, but I found this meal to be more utilitarian than tasty. Hungry and need nourishment? Then this will do. Are there better tasting meals? Yep.

    Cant go wrong

    As a professional macaroni enthusiast, I have had nearly every type of macaroni there is. Considering that this is backpacking food I had some pretty low expectations but WOW. I dont think Ive had macaroni from an italian diner this good. 100/10. Bought one to make at home and I just ordered 5 more. EDIT: I never use the suggestion amount of water, I used 1 and a half cups instead of 2 and it was perfect.

    Seriously...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    ...The most delicious freeze dried food I've ever had. Totally delicious and I even ate it with having screwed up cooking it and some noodles were still crunchy. I will definitely pick this up for my next adventure into the backcountry!

    Great for space food

      Some times they're too salty, sometimes they're lacking flavor, sometimes they don't reconstitute. But this guy is just right. hits the nail on the head. Good flavor, good calories, quick to saturate, light to pack. filling enough for two.

      Awesome!

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

      This is a great camp meal! After a few miles on the trail it helps to 'feel young.' I added less water than recommended, stirred extra well, and left it to sit a little longer than recommended - it turned out great and the pasta fully softened! I really liked this meal, but the Leonardo De-Fettuccine had mushrooms that really made the meal. The veggies in this one are great though! The package says two servings but you won't want to share if you've had a long day with a heavy pack - but could be supplemented with some extra protein if it needed to feed more than one person.
