Real chicken...Real flavor....Really good dinner!
This is the third peak refuel meal that I have tried. I assumed going into eating the chicken alfredo that it would be bland and difficult to get that homemade taste. Well, I was wrong. The chicken alfredo was quite tasty and if somebody served this to me blindly, I would not have guessed that it came from a freeze dried pouch. After eating this, I started reading reviews on peak refuels various menu options. What seemed to be fairly consistent in these reviews is that peak refuel has nailed their italian food options. I can’t wait to try the next one.
Have not used it yet. The meal is part of the travel bag for emergency use of convenience
Chicken Alfredo is definitely in the top 3 best meals by Peak Refuel. I've had homemade Chicken Alfredo and the first time I had Peak Refuels I was genuinely blown away. It was just as good if not better. Whenever anyone asks me what meal I always recommend this is the first one.
Went tent camping in Yosemite and brought this along as a backup meal incase it rained and we didn’t want to get wet cooking(It was really cold).
I mainly purchased this because it was soy free. A few years back I realized that soy was what was making me feel so awful and that most of my emergency meals in our go bags and family go bags had soy. We’ve been evacuated from our home 5 times since Covid due to two fires and following mudslides. I wanted something easier than the make shift meals I put together for my go bag. Tried this meal since I love Alfredo and can’t find a yummy sauce in the store that is soy free. Didn’t taste like freeze dried at all. Loved the flavor and the sauciness. It actually had too much chicken to pasta ratio but that is just me. I loved it and bought 6 more for emergencies. Thank you for making this soy free with no natural flavors(sometimes natural flavors have soy)!!
GREAT TASTE! Very healthy list of ingredients.
HALF the sodium and sugar as other manufacturers
of Freeze-Dried foods.
Peak Refuel is indeed the standard for Premium
I like the chicken alfredo but add a dollop of pesto to it, makes it more interesting.
I love this meal. It's never far when I'm on the trail. There's just times when you really want some pasta, and having this package in the pack is a can't miss on flavor and regaining energy.
Tasted really good! I served it to my wife but didn't tell her that it was a freeze dried product. She was impressed, so was I. Great served as a side with chicken.
Nothing like hot food after a long day of hunting in cold weather.
I have been served alfredo in restaurants that wasn't this good! The texture is as good as the flavor. Definitely a hit.
This was my first experience with Peak meals, and I was supremely impressed. I could not believe a freeze-dried meal could taste that good! The only thing missing was mushrooms! This one will definitely be a part of every pack!
Easy to order, arrived timely, was well packaged and just what we were looking for.
taste great and a good addition to my hunting pack on extended elk hunts.
After long hike up an down a free stone river fly fishing, I paired the Chicken Alfredo with a local brewers pale ale. Was very happy with the cheesiness and flavor of this meal !!
The Chicken Alfredo is restaurant quality with more protein then any other freeze dried meal on the market! It’s my go to for any outing!
Tastes great. Smells great. Looks great. Don’t use to much water when preparing and it’ll be delicious.
You know this is good if a six year old will eat it after a long day of backcountry canoeing!
This one was great! Would definitely buy it again for future adventures.
I found it to be very tasty. I was surprised that the noodles were so firm. A major plus. It had a large amount of chicken. It looked very appetizing. The consistency was perfect. Very pleased.
In my opinion, the Chicken Alfredo is the best Peak Refuel has to offer. I have enjoyed the flavor of the sauce and the grilled flavor of the chicken on my hikes along the AT through the Shenandoah Mountains. I have tried their other freeze dried meals but find the Chicken Alfredo to be my go to meal.
Everything I’ve tried from peak refuel had been really good.
Better than anything that I've had so far! Good stuff
This meal taste home made. Not chewy like some other brands. I have stocked up on Peak for my next backpack trip!
My husband and I are planning an AT hike. We were appalled at the amount of sodium in some of the freeze dried or dehydrated meals we considered. Then we found you guys! The protein is higher and the sodium almost half of many other brands! We love the fact there isnt a lot of "junk" in your meals too. We loved the alfredo chicken meal we tried and bought a bunch of your meals for our trip. I am very picky about what my dog eats, but I felt comfortable enough with your meals to share a bit with her, and even let her lick out the bag!
My son who is a very picky eater tried the Chicken Alfredo on a recent backpacking trip in Norther California. His eyes lit up and he said "Dad, the chicken actually tastes like chicken!". It was great to see him mack down a tasty, protein rich meal to full our next day hike.
What a find with Peak Refuel. I have tried different brands of foods (mountain house, MRE's), when I found Peak Refuel on FaceBook, I thought why not try a few of your meals. I was shocked at how tasty and good they were. I had the Chicken Alfredo Pasta, OMG it was amazing. Freeze Dried Food is not supposed to be this good, the taste and the ease of making my meal was simple. I recommend that anyone looking for a great product for a good price try Peak Refuel. It fits easily into your pack, and you have many meals to choose from. I've ordered the BISCUITS & SAUSAGE GRAVY and the BUTTERNUT DAL BHAT to try. My wife loves the healthy meals that you have put together for those that hike and want to eat something that you can prepare on the go. You have my wife and me as loyal customers. Thank you Peak Refuel, what a great product.
Best dehydrated meal I’ve ever had! Like having Olive Garden on the mountain!
Creamy and delicious! This really hits the spot after a long day on the trail. I love the noodles!
I had my first Peak Refuel experience with this meal during a week of turkey hunting. The flavor was amazing. I daresay it may be better than homemade! I think I added too much water to it, but even still, the broth at the end was delicious. Given my calorie burn of 1,500 that day, the protein and calories were much needed. The meal actually fueled me up to do an evening hunt. This was my first Peak Refuel purchase, but it won't be my last. Plus, I'm glad to support a company based in my home state.
Peak is great. I actually did not like chicken Alfredo until I tried Peak refuel. This stuff taste as good or better than fresh Italian pasta!
Hands down my favorite backcountry meals out there! I don’t have to force myself to eat it.
Chicken alfredo is my favorite meal by Peak Refuel! It rehydrates well and tastes fantastic. This is a perfect boost of carbs and calories after a long hike, camping trip or for any other reason. I highly recommend this meal!
This meal is my favorite and well worth the try. I eat the Chicken Alfredo for lunch even when I am not camping. I have tried other companies similar meals, but this one is the best.
hmmmmm chicken alfredo! It tastes so good!! Every time I eat this I scarf it down and before I know it my bag is empty...then I only wish I didn't eat so fast or that the bag was bigger. Great job Peak!!
This is the best backpacking meal I've had. It tasted great and wasn't extremely salty like other brands. I thought there was no way I could eat the entire package but it was so good I finished it off. This will definitely be in my regular backpacking meal rotation. Good stuff!!
This is such a good meal and tastes nothing like a freeze dried stale meal such as other brands. By far my favorite meal and well worth the purchase no matter what activity you need it for.
There really isn't that much to safe about Peak Refuel meals. They are good. Damn good. Way better than all of the others I've tried. My wife, daughter, and I only eat these while we're camping and we're also building up a supply for emergency situations.
Chicken Alfredo is our favorite flavor of all the great options. If rehydrates well and tastes delicious!
Love this product!! Taste as good as Olive Garden, we're lucky to keep any for our go bag. Recommended it to several people I've met who were looking at other manufacturers and will continue to do so!
My wife, son and I split a couple packages of the Peak Refuel Chicken Alfredo Pasta after our first mountain bike ride on a trip to the Pacific Northwest from our home in Moab. We were starving and too tired to make "real food" so we opted for this meal. It was our first experience with Peak Refuel meals but we're longtime backpackers with nearly three decades of experience choking down dehydrated meals. The Peak Refuel did not need to be choked down and it was just as good as "real food" because, well...it is. The flavor was amazing and we didn't have the typical experience of random crunchy bits that failed to rehydrate properly. Two bags fed the three of us and mostly filled our bellies. A salad or some other type of side dish would have topped us off. That was three years ago and since then we've purchased Peak Refuel meals almost exclusively and have yet to find one that we haven't liked. We're also stoked that they're a local Utah company. All things considered, I highly recommend Peak Refuel.
OMG this is delicious!!!! I was not expecting it to taste so good!!! I mean REALLY good!!! I am a truck driver and use these kind of meals when there are no facilities where I stop for the night, and wow, I had a delicious meal with this!!! Ordering more!
By far one of the best backpacking meals I have ever ate.
Hard to believe it’s actually freeze dried food. The taste is incredible, even compared to home cooked. My 9 yr old son told me it tastes better than (insert chain Italian restaurant here). To date this is the best backpacking/hunting/hiking meal company I have found. The flavors blow MH out of the water. I’m not one to focus hard on nutritional value, even though Peak Refuel is very nutritional. I just want something that tastes good, fills me up, and gets me back to the task at hand. Peak Refuel does exactly that. I could easily buy the cheaper “name brand” meals but they always compromise on taste and texture, making it unpleasant. Not Peak Refuel...they provide it all. My go-to from here on out. Don’t hesitate to throw these in your pack.
They nailed this one. The chicken, pasta, & sauce are all excellent. This is a meal I will look forward to at the end of the day in the mountains. Great job!
Can actually taste the chicken! And not ‘boiled chicken’ flavour, almost had a slightly BBQ or blackened chicken flavour to it. Not over salted like many dehydrated meals, as close to real food as you will get!
Pretty sure I got the water ratio correct but it ended up a bit liquidy even after sitting in closed package for a few extra minutes. This one was our favorite Peak Fuel food and didn't have too much dairy either (I'm allergic but had no respiratory problems after eating like most dairy does for me) . My daughter enjoyed it as well and the chicken has great flavor.
I have such a hard time deciding what is better, the Alfredo or the Pesto. It’s a close one but I still think the Alfredo is my favorite. Restaurant quality food available one the mountain!
Best freeze-dried meal I have ever had! So close to tasting like freshly made meal. Really like the small amount of water required to prepare. I will definitely add this to my next adventure.
Got one in my monthly Cairn box. Love it so I ordered two more for my upcoming backpacking trips. Will share pics after I get back.
This was sooo tasty and filling! My friend came down to Joshua tree from Utah and brought us all some meals, definitely going to use for our next adventures.
I've had my share of freeze-dried meals...well, more than my share. On the trail, in the mountains or on some remote beach, meal time has become more of a dreaded chore. Small foam bits that are said to be meat and bits of veggies and beans that don't reconstitute.
When I found Peak Refuel, I couldn't believe the difference. A little research shows that they are the only company who freeze-dries all of their meal together, as opposed to adding prior individual freeze-dried ingredients separately.
Once the boiling water has been added and the food has reconstituted, the Peak Refuel meals rival my mom's cooking, and that's no joke. Moist bits of chicken the size of my thumb are full of taste and the whole meal seems like it should be brought out on fine china as opposed to eaten out of a bag.
Not to mention there's substantially less sodium than in other freeze-dried meals!
I'll never bring any brand other than Peak Refuel into the backcountry again. I may even eat them at home on the couch!

I just tried this Chicken Alfredo at the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver and I would have to say that it was one of the best tasting meals that I have ever had. You could even see the grill marks on the chicken, can't wait to try one of these out on the trail after a long day of hiking.
This meal is amazing! The directions are so simple, and the meal fully heats within 10 minutes. The best part, however, is the taste! This meal has incredible flavor - which kept me (and the kids) coming back for seconds and thirds. This is great for the outdoors - and also for staying in!
Big fan of this meal. Real cheese and loads of Chicken!
The fam and I just tried the Chicken Alfredo and it was gone before it got back around to me. It tasted like it was home made. The real meat makes a huge difference in flavor and texture. The kids loved it which is a big deal when your miles away from the truck and you only have packaged meals to eat.
We will be adding these to both the camping meal list and the food storage. It really is that good.
