It certainly gets the job done after a long day of hiking.
I love that they have brown rice instead of white, and the chicken is surprisingly good for a dehydrated meal.
This one was also VERY filling since it has more than just the brown rice as far as grains go. I ended up saving a third of it and eating the rest for breakfast the next day. (And that actually worked out for the best because we ended up camping an extra night. It was nice to have an extra breakfast instead of just power bars at that point).
I do wish it had a few more veggies, and a few more spices, though. You could always bring your own little spice pack to throw in. The lack of spice seems to be a common theme in all the AlpineAire meals vs. the Mountain House meals. But the quality is great.
The food is very satisfying and is plenty for two people and is understandably somewhat salty. I would buy it again.
This is a solid meal that fills and warms you up.
