Cajun Jambalaya

Better than no food

For all of the different ingredients that are in the Jambalaya, there is a distinct lack of flavor.

Coconut chicken Curry

I ook three different products from Next Mile Meals on a week long paddling trip to the Everglades National Park. I’ve been hiking and paddling in the backcountry for about 25 years now, and I usually rely on dehydrated meals. Next Mile Meals are unlike any of the other brands out there, and I’ve probably had a hundred different meals from all of the major brands. They really do taste like something you’d make at home.

Not just for breakfast

My brother and I like to have this anytime of the day. When in the backcountry hunting, this and other Next Mile meals keep us going. The sausage hits the spot and is much better than several other brands. I like to add a packet of Tony Chacere's single serve seasoning. But often I like it as the original, depending what my preference is at the time.

Coconut Chicken Curry

The spices are very nice, not bland. Altogether these meals are an amazing end to long days and the best is their variability.

Awesome and nutritious

I love Next Mile Meals when in the backcountry because they are simple, nutritious, and not filled with empty carbs. I have tried every meal and I have not found one I didn't like. Keep doing a great job Next Mile family!

Good Stuff! It is nice to have an option with little to no additives.

Perfect any time of day!

I looked forward to eating this meal while hunting in Idaho for 15 days. While other meals are fantastic, this was one of my favorites for any time of day. Considering it is a little cheaper than lunch or supper meals it is a good choice for value and calories.

Delicious and Filling

Really enjoyed these low carb options on the trail. One of the additional benefits is that they "stick" with you and provide slow burn calories.

yummy, satisfying

Sensational - if you love spicy!

If you love super spicy, then the sample pack is for you! However, I prefer more mellow. Everything tasted amazing, but my stomach just does not tolerate super spicy. Also, I would have liked to have seen much more veggies in the meals.

My favorite item from Next Mile Meals is their Steak Omelette (which is not in the sample pack). It was absolutely perfect for any meal!

First purchase, pleasantly surprised

Once we got the water right I was super happy with the meals. I can’t thank Next Mile Meals enough for providing a great tasting low carb alternative. I’m working on weight loss and the love of my life is diabetic so these were perfect for both of us.

Awesome! I’d reorder over and over.

One of my favorites!

Excellent

Look Forward to Breakfast!

Absolutely loved the Steak Omelette! Great for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner! The peppers were just right - flavorable but not too spicy. I will be buying more!

Bait and switch on free delivery....and reply?

So they talked me into ordering more by promising a free delivery above a certain order total. Yeah...the free delivery was so slow my food did not arrive in time for my trip. Thanks. So I am placing my order now (Nov. 2021) for my next trip (Feb 2022), just to make sure it arrives on time....

This is the reply by Next Mile Meals:

Hi Scott. We do our best to clearly communicate how long each shipping method may take prior to checkout so customers can choose shipping speed that best align with their upcoming trips. On your last order, you chose 'Free Shipping (10-15 Business Days)' and it looks like your order arrived in 10 Business Days. With all mail carriers removing their guarantees, we have all been frustrated by the slowness of shipping due to current events, which is why we provide estimates as best we can, and your order did arrive within your chosen speed's estimate. We do offer faster options if you would like, simply select a different shipping speed at checkout. Happy hiking!

Hi Scott. Once again, we're sorry there was any confusion about delivery times. As we mentioned in that public reply to your other comment, we do our best to clearly communicate how long orders may take to deliver, which is why we offer a few different shipping speeds. If you need an order in fewer than 10 Business Days, we recommend choosing a faster shipping method than our 'Free Shipping (10-15 Business Days)' shipping method. If you need any help choosing a better shipping speed, we'd be happy to help! Happy hiking!

The Bag Was Open

I received my steak omlette and the bag was open and the contents were all over the inside if the shipping box. This obviously resulted from trying to fit too many meals into a box that was too small. I had to throw this expensive meal away and am out the money I spent on it. Very disappointing.

Hi John. I'm so sorry one of your meals was damaged in transit! We have a policy to replace any damaged meals, but it doesn't look like you reached out to us to let us know? If you just shoot us an email at hi@nextmilemeals.com, we can work to get that replaced. If any issues arise on any future orders, letting our team know is the only way we can make things right. We'll keep an eye out for your email.

Delicious and filling

I am surprised it's right on the dot with the water measurements for the best consistency of rehydration.
That being said, it's as tasty as any of the other carb heavy meals but fills you up just the same. A hot meal on a cold fall night I really enjoyed this and kept low carbs.
Since I do intermittent fasting even when backpacking, the meals energy stayed with me all night through the morning well near an 18 hour fast backpacking tough smoky mountains trails.
Also had the coconut curry and it was damn good.

Cajun Jambalaya Review

Easy to prepare as are all of the meals. Just didn't realize meal had pork, which tends to not agree with me. Error on my part but good nonetheless.

Eggs-ellent!

I got home from work today and decided to try the sausage scramble. I was blown away how good it smelled and it tasted great!

Already ordered more!

Hits the spot after a long hike

I've only tried 3 so far but they were great. Italian Meatball was definitely the favorite. My husband and I split 3 on an overnight in Paria Canyon.

Recommend

Great flavor and quantity in the packages. For a low carb meal option on the go that is ready to eat with just a little hot water this was perfect! Highly recommended
