Yuck!

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

The ONLY dehydrated meal I have ever tried that was so bad I could only eat about 25% of it, and I have tried many of them from all the main companies.

Bold Taste

This meal started out great, lots of flavor, enjoyed the rice and veggies. By the end of the bag (to be fair its 2 servings and I was eating both for my meal) it tasted like someone had doused the food in soy sauce. It was a strong salty flavor that was almost overwhelming, but again that didn't phase me until the last 1/4 of the bag. Might be better if you mix some veggies or something bland in with the meal.

Full of flavor, maybe even too much

Easy to prepare. A kick in the taste buds. Surprisingly a little spicy. Only giving it 3 stars because it was super salty and resulted in a rumbly belly all evening.

Very tasty!

    This was very good. Has almost an earthy smell/taste to it. Definitely going to get this again.

    Great Backpacking Meal!

      I loved this meal! It was filling and satisfying without being overly salty like a lot of pre-packaged backpacking meals. Even though it says 2 servings per bag, I devoured the entire bag by myself after an intense day of hiking in the Tetons.

      I'd definitely order this again, and I'd definitely recommend it, especially to other vegans in search of great backcountry meals.
