    1. Great go food Review by Robert

      On my treks – up to three weeks, much off trail – in the most remote parts of wilderness areas from Northern Mexico to mid British Columbia, I carry about 35 ounces (dry weight) of food per day. For decades, about one third of my daily calories has come from Backpacker Pantry two-person meals, which are freeze-dried, oxygen-purged, and vacuum-packed. I have often carried only one selection, Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce, which for me contains the ideal nutrient mix and tastes the best.

      While Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce is one of Backpacker Pantry’s many meatless dinner selections, I am not a vegetarian and in fact carry about two ounces of jerky, often turkey, in my lunch ration (and if I don’t finish the jerky during the day, I chip the leftover into my freeze-dried dinner packet before adding water). Although Spicy Thai provides a significant amount of protein (balanced grain and legume amino acids), its highest value for me is its load of complex carbohydrates along with some, mostly unsaturated, fat. (If I were pushing the season into Fall or doing a Spring trip, during either of which I was expecting consistently low temperatures with mixed precipitation, I would help maintain core temperature by adding walnuts and/or olive oil to my lunch and/or dinner rations.)

      I have a specific procedure for preparing and eating the Backpacker Pantry meals.

      • After setting up my stove or before putting the kettle on the fire, I start dinner preparation by tapping the unopened meal packet so that I don’t lose any of the contents when I tear off the top strip. Once the vacuum has been broken and I have removed any inner packets, I reseal and hold the “zipper” lock and shake the inverted packet a few times, paying attention to the bottom creases and corners to dislodge any contents that might have settled there. Then I expand the bottom folds and set the packet on a flat surface handy to the kettle, where it will be easy to fill and stir.

      • To fill the packet (after adding the contents of any internal food packets), I pull the kettle at a full boil directly from the stove and pour rapidly (counting off the estimated ounces), with my oversize spoon in place. Immediately I give an efficient (vigorous, thorough, quick) stir and reseal the packet while evacuating air. Then I fit the bottom half of the filled sealed packet into the remaining water in my hot stovetop kettle, from which, after about 15 – rounding up from the suggested 13 – minutes (part of which I use to mix a meal replacement shake for dessert, overnight, and pre-breakfast), I eat the dinner, piping hot until the last bite.

      • To boil water, I use a 36-ounce kettle, which provides 20 ounces for the freeze-dried meal (the suggested amount plus extra for any added jerky or to provide a juicier end product), 12 ounces for a hot drink in a vacuum mug, and 4 ounces to set my reconstituting dinner packet in and for cleaning utensils, rinsing and then drinking the last bits from the empty packet, and tooth brushing.

      If I don’t finish the meal at dinner, I seal the packet and put it into the lunch bag for the next day. With the flavors melding overnight, any leftovers from the previous night’s reconstituted meal are delicious at what is usually cooler than ambient temperature.

      The convenience, nutrient density, and satisfying flavor and texture of Backpacker Pantry products help me optimize recovery time after the day’s hiking, a factor becoming increasingly important as I age.

    2. Pretty alright Review by RKHeliplex

      A couple of things to be aware of: I found it a bit messy to get the peanut butter out of it's packaging and into the dinner package.

      And I had boiling water in the pouch for two mins over the allotted time but the rice still wasn't fully cooked. I'd recommend incubating longer than the package directs.

      But all in all it was pretty tasty. I loved the peanuts and peanut butter taste. I brought sriracha with me in a small container and that helped to up the heat a bit more. (Posted on 6/22/2015)
