    Very filling and warms up your whole body on a cold morning, and you can suck on the cinnamon stick for a midmorning flavor burst

    I couldn't wait until my trip, so I made up a pouch of this straight away. This is a far cry from a packet of instant oatmeal! Not an overpowering peanut flavor at all, in fact, perfectly blended flavors. Would be nice on a rainy morning. I added a bit of ground cayenne for a kick. However, next time I prep it, I will only add 8 oz of water so it is less soupy while hiking.

    Looking for something truly different? Of all the things on this site, this is my favorite. served warm its very filling and soooo much better then oatmeal. The mix of spices leaves you smiling

    I love this stuff. It's great on a damp chilly morning, more filling than oatmeal or other hot cereal type breakfast, definitely a unique taste. For me, it's great as it is, no need to add anything. I would sneak up on the water though, as it can be easy to overshoot. Not that it's all that critical, just makes it a bit runny or you have to put it aside for a few more minutes.
