We love all of the Peak Refuel meals while in the outdoors camping, hiking or hunting. Have not been disappointed! Would love to see a few more Gluten Free recipes(food allergy). Thanks
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
one of the best freeze-dried camping meals I have had!
Very tasty and filling! I ate both servings after a long, rainy day on the Ouachita trail, and it made my night. Slept well and fueled me for a full 20 mile day the following day.
This is quite possibly the best freeze dried meal on the market. I'd eat this even if I wasn't hiking. It's that good!
best trail meals I have ever tried. will now stick with PEAK. good taste, good calorie count, great protein. not salty like other brands and takes less water. great product and get customer service
One of my favorites! Honestly almost as good as you can make fresh at home.
Fantastic pasta dish great after a long day
Peak Refuel meals are the best on the market, and the Chicken Pesto is the best one that they make. It tastes like you're in a restaurant, but you're out in the middle of nowhere on a backpacking trip. If I had to live on one meal for a 50 miler, I would pack only these. Of course, you have to love pesto, which I do.
If I could eat only one packaged camp meal on trail, this would be IT!
This is one of my favorite backpacking meals, hits the spot after a long day climbing or hiking.
Tastes great. Smells great. Looks great. Don’t use to much water when preparing and it’ll be delicious.
Great blend of flavors.
My Main complaint has not been about the taste but the cooking instruction are incorrect for my liking. Instead of the 2/3 cup of water i has to add 3/4 cup to make sauce and soften th texture. I let it sit for 12 mins instead of 10 thinking it would cook the chicken all the way through. Nope some of the chicken was still a little hard. Im not sure how anyone could give this meal and overall 5 stars.
So quick and easy. Took them ice fishing for a 3 day trip. Half asleep before coffee kicked in still easy to make. My 10 year old got hunger at one point and had no problem making it on his own.
The chicken pesto is absolutely amazing!! If I didn’t know any better I would of thought it was cooked up in my kitchen!! It’s awesome!! Yes it’s that good!! I’ve ordered several of the chicken pesto and love it!!
The pesto pasta is really good stuff. I haven't tried the chicken Alfredo yet.
I wish they gave these out when I was in the military. Better than the chow they served in the mess hall. I take them on hikes with my son. He’s terribly picky and he devours them.
This chicken pesto actually taste pretty good, its low in sugar, didnt make me sick. My only issue was there really isnt that much food in the pouch. Like the volume seems pretty light to me vs the calories they are saying are in there. This is still over priced for what it is. I would love to support a local company but probably not buying again based off of price, taste, and making me sick with some other meals.
5 stars! This is one of the best backpacking Chicken meals I have had yet. It’s rich and hearty and sticks to the ribs!
It’s become a staple in my backcountry kit. I highly recommend Peak Refuel. You won’t be disappointed.
We tried this pasta as it's the only pesto we've seen in freeze dried camping/backpacking food. My brother and I were beyond happy with the product as it tastes better then some Italian restaurants I've been too. This is something I will be buying again for sure and may even use in day to day life not just for camping
One of my favorite Peak meals. I eat this for lunch while hunting the back country. Tastes great and keeps me moving up the mountain for the rest of the day. Also a great dinner meal. I always look forward to getting back to camp and having a warm & great tasting meal. High recommend this one!!!
It's very difficult to choose a favorite Peak meal, they are all so good! My top choice is the chicken pesto pasta meal! It is seasoned just perfect and is absolutely wonderful...much better than I could make.
Best meal after a long hike. Great taste, filling, and takes less water than some other meals. Highly recommend...and I’ve already purchased more!
I bought several Peak Refuel meals to experiment prior to an upcoming thru hike. I’m honestly amazed by the quality. The meat texture is on point. The meal is unctuous without weighing me down too much. My wife won’t touch dehydrated/freeze dried meat in backpacking meals but she agreed this was actually delicious!
Peak Refuel has become my “go to” brand for all my outdoor activity meals.
They are hearty, taste great, “right sized” and don’t leave me hungry, and super easy to prepare!
They are as close to homemade as you are going get! Yum!
This particular product is one of my favorites!
The best backpacking meal hands down. First of all, its just awesome. Its not just "good in the backcountry". Its good if you made it in your kitchen and sat down to eat it. If you know anyone who isnt crazy about freeze dried meals, this is the one to show them there is a better way :) Also super filling without being heavy, high protein and calories. Keep a few on hand so you know you have a great option for a quick getaway weekend.
After looking at other brands of freeze-dried meals I settled on Peak for a backcountry elk hunt last September. All of them were great; I have always really loved Stroganoff as a meal and thought for sure it would be my favorite Peak meal. I would have to say that it turned out to be a close 2nd to the Chicken Pesto. Couldn't believe how good it was after a long day of hiking searching for bugles.
Best freeze tried meals I have had. So good. Took them on a scouting trip and they will be the only meals I take on my hunts from now on. So good and very satisfying. I also notice no stomach upset like I usually get with other freeze dried meals on the market.
I’ve tried most of their meals and have found chicken pesto to be the best tasting IMO. The pasta consistency is spot on and the amount of protein per meal also blows the competition out the water!
Not one of the best but THE BEST freeze dried meal ever made! All the Peaks I had were fantastic but the Chicken Pesto Pasta was sooooo satisfying! Was about 1/2 & 1/2 on Peak Refuels to other Freezed drieds on our Alaska moose hunt this past September and I totally wish I would have had 100% Peak Refuels. My mouth is literally watering right now just thinking about the Chicken Pesto Pasta, I've NEVER had that experience with any other brand of freeze dried meals. Look no further, this is your one stop shop!
Last year I stayed in the Alaska bush for three weeks on a hunt. This meal was the one I looked forward to out of all of them. Best freeze dried I have ever eaten. After 23 days of mountain house and peak refuel, I still love this meal.
Loved it! Great tasting meal, and very filling. Gave me the energy I needed to backpack out of a deep canyon that the big bulls were hiding in on a recent Utah archery elk hunt. I will definitely be buying more!
Had the Peak Refuel Chicken Pesto Pasta during a recent 3 day AT hike in NC. This was one of the best trail meals I have had in a long time. I chose it on a recommendation from an REI associate. Can't wait for the next trip and trying other Peak Refuel meals.
Great product! This was my intro to Peak and it did not disappoint. By far better than other freeze dried meals I have tried in the past. I ended up buying more and continue to be impressed. This summer I am trying many more of the flavors on backpacking trips in advance of hunting season.
This meal is amazing. It uses such a minimal amount of water. That leaves more water to drink. Taste is better than most restaurants.
Great taste. Very little water required.
Great pesto flavor!
My 8 year old son is my taste tester on freeze dried because if kids won’t eat it... well, good luck.. he loves this pesto chicken! Kid approved = good stuff!
If you care about getting high calories, protein and fats when pushing yourself to the limit in the backcountry, then this is the meal to get. I love eating these meals after a long day hiking.
Just tried the chicken pesto for the first time. Had an overnight bivy on the side of a 14er and wanted just enough for two of us. We both said this was good enough to eat at home. Was skeptical about how little water the pasta called for but it was right on AND rehydrated fully in the time it said. Very impressed with the taste, texture and convenience of this meal.
