Smells like curry and has a sweet taste. The sweetness is due to the dried raisins. I liked the meal and will be bringing some on future hunts. Even though it was pretty sweet tasting, the natural ingredients made it so I didn't feel guilty eating this.
Definitely follow the instructions at the back of the package. I was at 7k feet above sea level and had to cook it for a few extra minutes.
It was a change in pace from the other more common freeze dried entree meals so I did appreciate that, not a huge fan in general though. I probably won't buy it again but I do think its worth trying
If I was to wander into your camp and you served me a bowl I probably would finish it but then I’d be up all night burping and inhaling my heartburn while just nodding off in my slope pitched tent. One tip I could give you is give it an extra 15 minutes from the recommended cook time. I was going to throw it away after waiting the 20 minutes to cook and thought I’d give it one last taste test before I threw it in the trash and that’s when I decided “hey if someone offered it to me I probably would eat it”.
