Exactly what you need!

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

These are light, easy to prepare and tasty. Exactly what you want in backpacking food. Rad.

Must have!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great! Food tastes awesome and super great for backpacking.

Great for a group

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

I would recommend this for anyone looking to feed a few people something sweet at the end of a long day of backpacking. Would be alot for just one person to consume.

Takes a little extra work

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

This takes a little extra work vs some others. Add a little whiskey and this makes for a great post trail treat though.

pretty good.. check directions

    I like making this and sharing with the group. Not even having a hole serving to myself, but to let everyone have a few bites. It's a good night cap. Not as quick and easy as other meals

    After a long day in the saddle.....

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

    Not worth the effort, rehydrate apples, mix packages then heat over a stove. We thought it was just boil water and pour.. We were bike packing so only brought minimal supplies. The flavor was good but we couldn't prepare it the way the instructions required, which was a total bummer.

    Hits the Spot

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Nice to have a treat on the trail without all the work of making it.

    Magically Deliciously Messy

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

    It's an adventure but if you make it to the end of the rainbow, it's a pot of gold.
    Wish it was one step and pour in the bag to make but it taste so good you'll lick the pans clean.
    Would buy again for car camping but too much work for backpacking.

    I love it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm a sucker for apple cobbler, and when on the trail it seems almost unfair to bust this out of your bag. Two thumbs up!

    Takes Time, But Worth It!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Takes a little more time to prepare, but worth it. Don't bring these if you're trying to go light weight. Great tasting desert after a long day on the trail. If you haven't tried this yet, you absolutely should. I typically always bring at least one on trips. Great addition to your backcountry food assortment.

    Great Cobbler

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'd give it a 5 it it wasn't for the multiple cooking steps. Taste is fantastic and worth having to clean up alittle

    completely unnecessarily necessary

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    it adds extra weight, but when you've been eating prison food (MRE's) for 3 days a little treat is worth the extra oz's in your pack. do it.

    Treat yo self!

      Perfect treat after a long day of hiking.
      Sweet, and easy.
      Love it!

      This made my night

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      OMGYES. having this piping hot dessert when its cold outside, there is nothing better.

      Pretty awesome

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

      Having this in your bag of tricks is pretty great when it comes to being the camp chef. I enjoy cooking in the wild, it takes a little time to prep but it's worth it. You're not having dessert with breakfast or lunch so presumably you're in camp for the night. I find preparing it to be a nice way to wind down as you gaze out over the scenic vista of your choosing. Where the prep time may be a factor would be in bear country when you're eating prior to selecting your camp site, in such a case racing daylight is going to hamper your ability to relax an enjoy dessert anyway.

      Yummy

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      My favorite dessert when camping/backpacking. Nothing tops off a day of hard hiking/climbing, etc. like some hot apple cobbler!

      Too complex

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

      I am all for different dinner options. However, when it comes to dessert, I like it sweet and simple. 15minutes to make dessert and simmering on heat for 10 minutes is too much for me. If you don't mind the time, and difficulty of simmering on 10, skip it. it does taste really great though!

      A big hit.

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

      The camp loved sharing this desert. No, its not as easy as passing around some crumbled up space ice cream. But if you've got the energy to do a little more cooking after dinner, the result is absolutely worth it. 5 stars.

      Good, so good!

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

      This is definitely one of my favorites, only problem is that it requires a little more effort than the also delicious "just add water"Raspberry Crumble. If you're down with some extra dishes, add it to your cart and get out there!

      Mmmm Mmm GOOD

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Best backpacking quick fix ever!
