The Big Gear Show 22 – Tasty Bite

Thursday, August 4th, 2022

If you’re looking for something to augment your field meals, check out Tasty Bite.

They offer a whole menu of very appetizing entrees and sides. All you have to do is heat them in the pouch. Since they’re already cooked, you can also eat them cold but they aren’t quite as tasty.

I sampled the basmati rice, madras lentils, and Coconut Chickpeas in Tumeric Curry. I definitely recommend all of it. In fact, I plan on adding them to my lunch options at home in the future.

ORSM 22 – Bridgford

Tuesday, June 21st, 2022

I’m a big fan of Bridgford’s shelf-stable, ready-to-eat sandwiches which are found in US military rations. One of their latest additions to their commercial offerings is the whole wheat fig bar.

If you like fig newtons, you’ll love these.

The company Freeze Dried (yes, that’s their actual name) has figured out how to freeze dry both ketchup and mustard without losing their flavor once reconstituted. Not only that, they are also doing it with chile and salsa.

ORSM 22 – Lyo Food

Monday, June 13th, 2022

Lyo Food is a Polish company which began creating freeze dried food for expeditions in the early 1990s. They’ve grown in Europe and are now coming to the United States with their menu.

Like the sign says, they grow all of their own ingredients on their own fields. They process everything in-house and use the freeze drying method to preserve their product because it maintains 97% of the nutrients on the food after preservation. It also offers the longest shelf life and lowest weight to nutrition ratio.

Finally, you’re going to find flavors you’ll get nowhere else. If you’re looking to upgrade your backcountry meals with clean label alternatives check out Lyo Food.
