Backpacker's Pantry Chicken Vindaloo Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

Tastes like it should!

As expected of a vindaloo, this has some heat although not excessive. I like spicy dishes and have had vindaloo in southeast Asia that could make me cry from heat and joy. If one does not typically enjoy spicy dishes, he/she should steer clear of this meal. (That is advice, not condemnation of the person or the product.) If one is accustomed to vindaloo, then this is a good choice for something different. We heated some roti in a pan to serve with it while the packet was rehydrating (as backpacking meal.) Chapati or naan would work as well.

While I was very pleased with the product, my wife observed that the chicken pieces were rather small (potato were small as well). While I agree with her assessment, this was more of a texture issue rather than flavor. Our children both found the flavor to be good.

If you like Indian food you will love it

I eat Indian Curries frequently so I was excited to see this for sale. Add the prescribed amount of water and wait 15 minutes or so and eat!

This is a two serving meal, but after back packing you will eat the whole thing to yourself.

Tastes great, has a good kick to it, good consistancy. No need to worry about bland flavor for this meal.

If you are not a big curry eater, try it at home first to ensure you like the flavor and spicyness.

Good Stuff

My BF sampled this at REI and loved it. It was too spicy for me so I got something else. He is a big eater, but felt satisfied by the serving size, which usually isn't the case. This definitely has a kick to it, so as the other reviewer mentioned, no need to worry about flavor here. My BF gives this four stars, but I should take one away because of the horrible gas he had after eating it. This meal will linger. You've been warned.

I got this because I often need an escape from other bland dehydrated meals. I'm pretty excited to have something with some spice to it. I have had Backpackers Pantry before and have been pleased. I'm really looking forward to this one.

Same 500ish calorie mark as most other dried meals but with less food. Great for the cold elevation when you need to eat but your appetite might not be there. Taste wise, this is the best dried meal ive had.

Man is this good! Serious kick, really flavorful, very filling. This might be my new favorite.

Negative Reviews:

poor rehydration

The re-hydration of the chicken and potatoes was awful. Very poor flavor over all--or lack there of. We threw ours onto the fire...couldn't stomach the square, mealy, grainy, soggy potatoes...or was it chicken?

no bueno...

Overwhelming HOT. Will rock your gut after consumption for the next 2 days. Be sure if you try this, you have your own tent.
