My family loves theses meals! I was worried about finding something everyone would like and next mile didn’t disappoint! Heathy and tasty my 9 year old wants these all the time now!
I ordered 5-6 of these. The first one I tried was so fantastic I was ready to give the meal a full 5 star review. The cheese was wonderful and melty, the tomato savory and the beef/veggie ratio was perfect. However, the subsequent 3 were put together incorrectly. First they were missing the Oxygen absorber....no biggie...but second - they had no Tomato or spices (read: Marinara) on them. The meals consisted only of the freeze-dried beef and zucchini. I made do on the trail, but was disappointed. This is a quality control issue more than a food as-it should be issue, but just wanted to inform y'all of my experience.
Hi Boris, we're so sorry to hear about your less-than-stellar experience. The issue you're describing is certainly unheard of for our product and we want to make it right. Please reach out to email@example.com and we'll do what we can to fix this issue. Happy hiking!
This is the best overall backpacking meal taste and texture. I add noodles to make it great.
I've been doing keto for a couple of years and managed to shed 60 lbs. When i spend a week on a back country hiking or kayaking trip, I don't want to stop the carb-free diet just to be able to bring freeze-dried along. next-mile solved that dilemma and in a very tasty way. This meal is one of my favorites. Great taste, good mouth feel and just the right amount of spice. Hard to go wrong with this one.
