    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    Backpacker's Pantry Jamaican Style Jerk Rice with Chicken - 2 Servings is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good! Tried this for the first time yesterday, loved it. However I made the mistake of trying to eat the whole package, lol. It is enough for 2 people, It says 2 servings, when I hear "servings" I think of a really small portion that never seems to be enough. This is not the case, there is a lot of food in there. I barely ate half, so yeah, feeds 2 people! Only thing I would say is make sure you wait the full 13 minutes otherwise the some of the rice could be firm still, maybe even 14 minutes. Very flavor filled and a nice dinner.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of 3 recent Backpack Meals Many folks commented on the CRUNCHY UNDERCOOKED rice. Note that, as with most directions, it says to DOUBLE the wait time for every 5,000 feet of elevation. So if it says 13 minutes or so (and we were at about 7,000 feet), that means more than double, or about 30 MINUTES of wait time before ready. If you can wait that long, the rice is ready to eat. That being said, I found the meal spicy and delicious, though I could not finish it at dinner. I actually saved it and had it COLD for breakfast, it was that good. Not just cold, but pretty much FREEZING and it still tasted good for breakfast. I sweat alot when backpacking, so bring on the sodium for me! Only reason its not a 5 is because the guidelines say that 5* is PERFECT, and that's probably NEVER gonna happen in a freeze-dried meal, IMO.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tasty, but salty The chicken was quite tasty, but overall dish was a little too salty. Some of the rice did not cook all the way as well. Overall it was quite good and I would take it again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Definitely better options out there... I purchased this on whim without checking any reviews first, having been pretty happy with previous "Backpacker's Pantry" items. It was easy to prepare but it does need longer time to rehydrate than what the directions suggest. The chicken pieces were flavorful, but there was very little meat in it. I won't say it tasted bad, but as others have commented it was mostly just pepper flavor. I did not notice a particularly salty taste, but a check of the nutritional content did reveal an extremely high sodium level. Overall I was not upset with having purchased this, but I will not be buying it again. Too much sodium, not a great flavor, and there are much better tasting and healthy meals available.
