Desserts


Attention, dessert lovers! If you think you need to leave your sweet tooth at home when you head out into the wilderness, it’s time to challenge that assumption. What if we told you there was a way to bring your favorite desserts with you on the trail without the added weight? It might sound too good to be true, but it’s completely possible — you just need to pick up some Backpacker’s Pantry freeze-dried desserts.

Thanks to our lightweight, freeze-dried hiking desserts, outdoor enthusiasts like you can enjoy some seriously delicious treats... no matter where your adventures lead. Whether you’re on an epic hunting expedition, a leisurely day hike or some other type of adventure, we make it easy to enjoy a sweet treat wherever you roam. These freeze-dried desserts are even the perfect addition to your survival food supply. In an emergency situation, it’s important to feed your soul, too.

But, here’s the best part about our selection of dessert food: No baking required. For most of our backpacking desserts, all you need is some cold water (our Mango Sticky Rice requires boiling water) and patience. Shake the pouch up a bit, and voila, dessert is served. From Dark Chocolate Cheesecake and Creme Brulee to the original Astronaut brand freeze-dried ice cream treats, there’s a recipe for whatever dessert you’re craving. You won’t have to compromise on flavor, but you will be able to spend more time doing what you love outside. 

Each pouch contains two servings, but we have a feeling you might not feel like sharing. Don’t take our word for it, though. Here’s what one fan had to say about their Creme Brulee: “Fluffy, smooth, flavorful and nice crunchy bits of caramel crunch to give it the creme brulee flair. I'm stocking up on a few more to celebrate the high points on future trips!”
