Coffee & Camp Treats

Mount Hagen Instant Coffee


One of the things I look forward to most on the trail, is my morning cup of coffee.  In searching for packable coffees, I consumed a lot of bitter, weak, or otherwise seriously substandard coffee.


Then I discovered Mount Hagen instant coffee packets.  On my first test of this coffee, I was sold, just by the smell alone.  But the Mount Hagen instant coffee also carries a great flavor, making that morning cup of coffee a great start to a day.

Homemade Hiking Meal - Ace's "Rice" Pudding

This recipe is for a homemade hiking meal that disguises itself as a dessert!  However, if you look at the nutritional content of this homemade hiking meal "dessert", you'll see that it is packed with nutrition that hikers need on the trail.


To make it even better, with just two minor modifications to the recipe of this homemade hiking meal, it can also be a keto homemade hiking meal!


This meal can give you much-needed nutrition, while making your taste buds think that it's just for pleasure!

Homeade Hiking Food - Ace's Keto-Friendly Chocolate Pudding

This is another homemade hiking meal that disguises itself as a dessert.  Who doesn't love chocolate pudding?


The chia seeds made for an amazing pudding texture, though they do carry a slight crunchiness with them.


My chocolate pudding is even more Keto-friendly, due to the fact that it doesn't require the raisins that were in my "rice" pudding.


I like a stronger, dark chocolate flavor, so if you're a bigger fan of milk chocolate, then you may want to halve the cacao powder in our own meal.

Mountain House Freeze Dried Ice Cream Sandwich


The Mountain House freeze dried ice cream sandwich is the perfect treat for a backpacking trip.  I chose the Mountain House freeze dried ice cream sandwich to surprise my hiking group, to celebrate a birthday on top of a mountain on the AT.


Most treats will either crush or melt in your pack, so a treat is something often longed for on extended hiking trips.  The Mountain House freeze dried ice cream sandwich packs well, allowing for a nice camp treat!

Mountain House Freeze Dried Cheesecake Bites


Mountain House has hit another one out of the park with their freeze dried cheesecake bites.  With this review, I went a slightly different direction, trying out the freeze dried cheesecake bites for the very first time, on camera.


After my freeze dried ice cream sandwich episode, I received a couple of emails asking if I had tried the freeze dried cheesecake bites, and being a cheesecake lover, I gave them a try.


Cheesecake lovers should watch!
