Rated 3 out of 5 by from not worth the extra 33% cost So the guy at REI said that this was the special dinner to eat on a special night when on a long hike. It was 33% more expensive than everyone else's gourmet dinners, and I am all about spending the money when you get the very best. Unfortunately this was just normal good food. I would even go a far as saying that the mushrooms had the texture of leather! The Risotto was very well done, but the leather textured mushrooms turned me off. (normally I love all types of mushrooms) The flavor of the mushroom was good, the risotto even better, but definitely not worth the extra $ two fifty bucks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for cold climates I made a mistake recently by buying this product untested and heading off to the Sierras during winter. The problem is that once you've added boiling water you need to leave for 20 minutes. In low temps, like 20f, this is going to be close to frozen after that long. I decided to keep mine beneath my down jacket - needless to say during 20 minutes I ended up with it all over me. Worse, after 20 mins it was crunchy gelatinous goo. Right now I recommend Alpine Faire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Personal gourmet camp chef in a bag! Fresh, wholesome, real food. Leaps and bounds better than the other freeze dried foods I’ve tried. Herbed Mushroom Risotto is so tasty I’d be pleased to get it dining out at a restaurant. Downright innovative… I really look forward to seeing what Good To-Go comes up with in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite meal on the trail! This meal was DELICIOUS. We had several other freeze dried meals on this trip, and they were good, but this one was my favorite. Shared it with my friend and it was a true 2 servings, it's very filling. Make sure you follow's worth the wait.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fooled me twice with this rice... I used this last year for the first time on a backpacking trip and was not super impressed, but loved other "Good To Go" options. Gave it a second try this year, and definitely will not buy this again. Like other reviewers, the flavor was weak, the directions were followed to the letter both times and the water does not get absorbed into the risotto. This is, unfortunately, a miss from this great Maine company. Opt for the Thai Curry instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Okay I was hoping it would be better than it was. I bought one of each of the flavors from Good to Go and this is the first one I've tried. The flavoring is good but weak. I could taste a bit of the garlic but couldn't really pick up on the basil flavor. The texture of the rice and the mushroom is very good. I ended adding salt to it and then it tasted much better. It isn't as crazy on the fat like some other backpacking meals I've had, and it has 13 grams of protein per serving. I probably won't purchase it again unless I get sick of every other meal I have and try to add in some variety.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Desperately needs more seasoning Low sodium, indeed! Seemed like it could be really good with even a little salt, but I didn't have any. The last thing I want to think about when backpacking is having to bring extra seasonings for ready-to-eat meals. That said, I prepared according to the instructions, and it came out fine, and I ate the whole package. I'd recommend it if you are on a low-sodium diet, or don't mind packing some salt along.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed I bought several of these meals for a short backpacking trip. They sounded really good and contained less salt than most. I was a bit concerned that these dehydrated, rather than freeze dried meals would not re-hydrate well using a Jet Boil. Indeed, they turned out kind of hard. The second night, I tried the marinara, which turned out better. The third night, I made sure the water was really boiling and let the Herbed Risoto sit longer. Still, it didn't re-hydrate that well. A friend took Backpackers Pantry vegan meals. We tried each others meals and I did like the Backpackers better. Perhaps the Good to-Go meals would be better if cooked longer. I might still recommend the marinara. But, I am going to look for other vegan options for the next trip.
