Great meal for camping

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

I ate this meal while camping in the Tetons and it was a great way to end a long and strenuous day. It was very easy to cook and filled me up. I will definitely be purchasing more of these for future adventures.

Convenient

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Tastes great and super easy to prepare which is nice after a long day.

Fettucine Alfre-DO!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This one's a winner. One of my favorites from BP.
Taste - 5/5

Stylistic Reliability - 5/5

Yum!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm always surprised with how good these taste. Fettuccine Alfredo is a high calorie luxury at home, but a winner on the trail.

Tastes great!

    I loved this meal!

    I keep buying this one

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This has became one of my go-to meals. It tastes great!

    Solid Choice

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

    I got to try this flavor sitting around the camp fire, everyone sharing a taste of their dinners.
    I went for more exciting flavors like the coconut curry and Cuban coconut black beans.. That was a mistake. Both flavors were weak compared to the Alfredo. This one tasted really good, as if you were at home or a restaurant instead of in the middle of no where.
    My suggestion is play it safe and get this flavor.

    Good Backpacking Pasta

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I put this one in the "good" category for backpacking meals. An easy dinner that is salty and flavorful is exactly what I need when getting done with a big day carrying the pack.

    Very good if your a pasta person

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

    My wife would give it a 5, I'm the 4. If they added broccoli to it I'd convert to a 5

    Yummy Yummy Alfredo!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm a big fan of these freeze dried meals and I like to try different flavors to keep things fresh. You can't go wrong with Chicken Alfredo! It is super tasty and filling. I will definitely be buying more!

    Pro Tip: Don't turn your zip-locked bag upside down to help mix the water and food. The zip-lock feature is not very strong and you will most likely dump your food all over the ground and scald your hands as well. I have seen this happen many times.

    Awesome

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Had this on a trip to Iceland! Was extremely impressed with the quality and taste.

    Fancy Italian at the campsite

      This chicken Alfredo, in my opinion, easily beats Olive Garden. It's just creamy enough and not too salty. One of my favorite backpacking meals!

      Thumbs up!

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

      I tend to read a lot of review's before trying a new variety of freeze dried food but in my opinion you can't go wrong with this one. Super tasty.

      da bessssst

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      So good, so much food. I tend to eat a whole one by my self but I also like to pig out, you could easily feed too people or save the rest for later. Lots of food lots of taste. My favorite from Backpackers Pantry.

      Awsome

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

      This was the first meal that we cracked into on our recent trip to Mt. Whitney. My wife and I loved it. The sauce was perfect and there was more then enough. It says it serves two but you can easily serve three. Highly recommend it.

      Fett Alf on the MOVE

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Fettuccine Alfredo has always been very prominent in my diet and I was stoked to try these out. It tastes really good, but could use some dehydrated onion / onion powder just to give it that extra flavor. This is one of my favorites from Mountain House and is a close second to their Beef Stroganoff

      BOMBER!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Carbs for the outback! Wha?! Are you kidding?!



      This is an amazing meal for two... Tastes great, no clean up, lightweight, and easy to prepare. They are the masters at backpackers pantry!



      My only complaint is the price but what can you say? If you like the outdoors to be more convenient and so tasty, this is the ticket!



      A Lil Salty

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      It was filling but the sauce was incredibly salty. It's a given with any freezedried food that salt will be there but this was a bit much for me.

      Really Good!

        I took a bunch of backpackers pantry meals with me on my most recent backpacking trip and the Fettuccini Alfredo was definitely one of the best. For bagged, just add water pasta this absolutely killed it! Nice and packable and lightweight as well. Good stuff!

        Belly Filling Goodness

          The alfredo sauce in this dish tastes like something you would get at a mom and pop italian restaurant. It's so filling and really really good. Definitely can't go wrong with this one, and it feeds two (good food is always better shared).
