Dessert time!

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

More like a pudding than a cheesecake, this is a great choice to bring backpacking for those that need a little something sweet after dinner. Definitely plenty to share with a couple of other chocolate lovers.

Just like Mom used to make.

Well, not exactly but Mom ate it and gave it a thumbs-up. Seriously, this is a tasty trail treat.

Dessert math.

Delicious. Do you dig chocolate? Then you'll dig this rich, chocolate pudding with Oreo cookie chunks. What? It's suppose to be cheesecake? Well, it didn't have that cheesecake tang but I refuse to remove a star, that's how damned tasty this pudding is!
I'm kicking myself for not taking a photo of the directions - maybe we were punchy after backpacking but we had a good laugh. It says; "Mix briskly with 2 forks for 2 minutes." Are TWO forks really necessary? Can we employ a little dessert math and conclude that 2 forks at 2 minutes = 1 fork at 4 min? What if you only have chopsticks!? We didn't dare risk it, Mom dutifully whisked the pudding with 2 forks. We split one pouch between 3 adults and had a little left over - it's really rich and tasty.

Delicious but messy

I thought it might be nice to have a sweet treat on the trail so I bought this dessert mix. It was good but also very messy! I had chocolate coated hands from 2 minutes of mixing briskly. At the end of the day I'm more keen on a relaxing, less messy meal prep. I think next time I'll just pack some ready made fruit chews for a sweet treat.


    Real good for a treat on the trails!


      This is exactly what you need after a long day hiking. Thick and creamy. Nothing is more rewarding than chocolate cheesecake!
