I discovered Packit Gourmet sometime last spring and put in an order for my summer food supply after reading some very positive reviews of their meals. Last year’s list included Enertia Trailfoods which I still do like, but I found myself getting a bit burned out on their stuff even though I still enjoy it far more than other backpacking food. Packit Gourmet offered some variety and interesting options that I hadn’t seen before so I eagerly tried it out, ordering several different types of meals. The first thing I tried was their Austintacious Tortilla Soup, and it was so good upon arriving home from that trip I immediately ordered more. I’ve gone through many other of their offerings and I have yet to find something that isn’t yummy. I can’t believe I’d say this about any kind of backpacking food, but I swear I could eat their meals at home for regular dinner and be perfectly happy and satisfied.
