How This Review Happened: This product was sent to us for a review.
Weight: It comes in a #10 can, so you can bring whatever amount you want with you on your adventure in whatever container you prefer. So the weight depends on the amount you bring.
Taste: Like the other meals I tried from Nutrient Survival, the flavor of the Southwestern Medley isn’t super strong, but it does taste good. It would make a good side dish, or a good meal alone I think. It has a slight spice to it, but just enough to add a little heat.
Re-hydrate Time: I am super impressed with how fast the rice was to hydrate fully. Usually rice takes a good 15 min in the backpacking meals I’ve tried before. The Southwestern Medley was fully cooked within 5 minutes.
Overall: The Southwestern Medley from Nutrient Survival is a tasty rice and beans dish that has a slight hint of spice to it. It re-hydrates very quickly for being rice and beans too. The flavor is light enough that you can customize it and add whatever you want to make it your own. Or it is good as is too.
I like that Nutrient Survival focuses on having a complete nutrient based meal in all their products. They are the first dehydrated meal company that I have come across that does that. I know when I do longer backpacking trips that I would prefer to know I’m getting all the nutrients I need instead of just filling my stomach with food to be full. And their re-hydrate times are really fast compared to other dehydrated meals I’ve tried.
