Delicious!

This is my new favorite backpacking meal! Oh my word. With a little extra salt and lime it is 10000/10. I disagree with the reviews stating that the banana is too strong. Neither my boyfriend or myself could taste banana at all. Maybe just a *hint* of general sweetness. I'm going to order 20 more.

My favorite!

This is my favorite Backpacker's Pantry meal. I start to crave it when the hike is almost done. It's mostly a salty dish with a few small hints of banana when you get a bit of plantain. The coconut flavor is also subtle. It's plenty filling, even though there is no meat. I recommend try one before you pack a bunch of it, though, some of my friends did not care for this one. I grew up in the tropics so these flavors were familiar to me. I traded my other meals for their extra Cuban coconut rice, I didn't mind eating it several nights.

One of my favorite dehydrated meals

I recently blogged about my favorite freeze-dried meals, and couldn't forget this simply delicious must-try from Backpacker’s Pantry. I originally grabbed it for a side dish while on a multi-day backpacking excursion, but found out that this flavorful pick is a full meal on its own. The rice is flavored with coconut milk, giving you caribbean-esce flavor wherever you enjoy it. It not only has hearty black beans mixed in, but also natural freeze-dried banana pieces that add pleasant sweetness to the blend. It is also worth noting that the banana flavor isn’t an overly sweet, artificial one like a banana Laffy-Taffy. It is natural on the tongue, nourishing, and contains 2 servings in a bag, making it a perfectly hefty portion for me, myself, and I.

Whoa! This is addicting

Cuban coconut beans & rice is so amazing. There is no overbearing banana smell like the last reviewer said. This is my go to meal. Filling, satisfying, and hits all the right taste buds!!

A little too much banana

This was a great dish that powered me through a tough 10 mile afternoon on the Art Loeb Trail, but I was really put off by the strong banana smell and taste. For whatever reason I got almost no coconut at all.
