Anybody who likes the Honey Stinger Waffles should make a point of trying these. I think Daelman’s is considered one of the best Stroopwafels in Holland (could be wrong…I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong) but IMO they blow away the HSW (which strike me as a version of a stroopwafel) and at $0.88 are less expensive to boot. At SXSW 2 years ago an airline was handing them out (as many as you wanted) and I damn near OD’d on them :)Dec 26, 2018 at 12:14 am #3570069Diane “Piper” SoiniBPL Member

I don’t know what KETO bricks are, but I have made pemmican. I dehydrated thinly-sliced steak, then ground up the dried steak into powder in my blender. I mixed the powder (in a mixing bowl) with melted grass-fed beef fat (tallow) that I bought at the farmer’s market. I just sort of eye-balled the mixture. I pressed the mixture into a muffin pan and cooled it in the freezer. Then I wrapped each hockey puck individually.
It was not tasty.
I tried again and added salt. Still not tastey.
I tried again and added dried berries. This was a little more edible, but I can’t say it was tasty.
Even though it never really was very tasty and I’d kind of have to force myself to eat it, I have never eaten anything on trail that left me feeling more sustained. I wouldn’t get hungry for a long time and I felt good after eating it. But because it was so not-tasty, I ended up trying to figure out what I could do with it that would not be so hard to choke down. I melted it into my hot meals and that WAS tasty. Melted into some potatoes it was heaven.Apr 20, 2019 at 4:16 am #3589662idesterBPL Member

Since I do keto I decided to try the keto bricks, all three flavors, to see if I’d like them enough to take backpacking. Not bad tasting at all. ~1000 calories per brick, each with ~90g fat, ~16g carbs, of which 14g are fiber and ~31g protein. Very good keto macros.
They’re expensive if you buy them individually, $12 per brick including shipping. Cheaper if you buy them in bulk. I liked them enough to buy a 30 bar variety pack for $180 including shipping, so $6 per bar. I see each bar as two meals, breakfast and lunch, so quite reasonable from my standpoint, and they will make putting keto backpacking meals together much easier for me.
Would probably melt in the height of summer, but I rarely backpack in the serious heat of summer, so should work quite well for me.Apr 21, 2019 at 1:59 pm #3589801Jim ColtenSpectator

If it hasn’t already been mentioned, we just picked up a pack of roasted and salted sunflower seeds (Trader Joe’s) and they measure out to 200 calories/ounce.Apr 24, 2019 at 4:08 am #3590163matthew kModerator
Yes and they are delicious and pack into a small volume with very little wasted air space.
I buy two packs at a time mixing salted and unsalted.
Cheap at $2.99 for a one pound bag.
Delicious mixed in with instant hummus
Lastly, I like the unsalted sunflower seeds mixed with TJs sales sesame sticks.Apr 24, 2019 at 1:55 pm #3590189Tom KBPL Member
Toasted pine nuts, walnuts, pecans, macadamias, all @200 calories +/- 10 calories.
Pine nuts also pack down very densely without crushing.May 2, 2019 at 5:42 pm #3591382Diane “Piper” SoiniBPL Member
