Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC! Best packing dessert I've ever had. By far. Shocked with reviews saying it lacks flavor. I licked the package clean! I mean, of course it isn't chessecake per se - more like mousse - but who would expect cheesecake? I am not easy to please dessert-wise and I thought it was awesome. Guess it just goes to show we all need to take these reviews with a grain or two of salt, as some people will never be pleased - at least until they've written a poor review...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a treat! This can be a little messy if you don't have a long enough utensil for mixing, but it's still totally worth it! Texture and flavor are pretty much a chocolate mousse with a nice mix of cheesecake to add a little richness and complexity. The crumbles add a little something, mostly a variety in texture from the heavy mousse. We tried the Mocha Mousse Pie after this based on reviews, but strongly preferred this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Camping Dessert EVER This is HANDS DOWN the single best camping dessert I have EVER HAD!!! I cannot recommend it highly enough. We had also packed some camping Brownies (which were awful) and the plain ole cheesecake and in the end, we both agreed that we wished we had just packed more of this. So creamy and sweet and delicious. You will be trying to lick the bag clean! As for the con that it isn't health: C'mon, it's CHEESECAKE! You know that it isn't healthy! Backpacker's Pantry, Please don't ever discontinue this one!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Think pudding, not cheesecake. This is certainly not "cheesecake," it doesn't even taste like cheesecake. But it is delicious as heck. think of a very good chocolate pudding that looks like builder's cement, and the cookie topping is pathetically small, but is easily remedied by bringing along 3-4 of "america's favorite cookie" (creme filled chocolate cookies, do the math) to crumble on top. Serves two for a hearty dessert, or three for a light dessert. I do have to say, that if you just put away a "two serving" package of whatever meal backpacker's pantry you wanted, you won't have room for this. We wound up eating it for breakfast the next day. Worth every penny, and coming with all of our future backpacking trips. It's like instant jello, only a touch runnier, and mixes up with water instead of milk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, when made in the bag! My first attempt at this didn't go so well, since I was traveling alone and hoped to get two desserts out of this-- making it in a bowl (even covering it, as instructed) just didn't work so well, it ended up simultaneously lumpy and runny, despite thorough stirring. Attempt #2 however, which I made in the bag, turned out fantastic. Something about the pouch makes it work so much better. I will definitely get this again, and make it all in the bag at once-- and maybe eat it all at once!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrid This product was an utter disappointment. I was expecting a freeze-dried powdered cheesecake, which would have been fine on it's own, but they obviously thought it needed more consistency and added some type of chemical thickener. It tasted mostly of whatever the thickening agent was, and not even like chocolate. The cookie crumble packet, advertised as a topping, is just 3/4 of an oreo that has been crushed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty darned good This was super easy to make and tasted very good. It was very creamy and light, tasted just like chocolate cheesecake. The only thing that bothered me was that the packaging said to sprinkle the chocolate graham cracker crust over the top. There wasn't any graham cracker crust provided It seems that this wasn't included with the package. Regardless, I would highly recommend this dessert. It was very tasty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stuff My son wanted to try some 'backpacking' food in preperation of his first trip, so we bought this and brought it home just to try. It wasn't bad at all. I wouldn't definitely take it along backpacking as a desert and it's enough to share. I thought there was plenty of flavor and would satisfy my sweet tooth on a trip.
