ESSENTIAL!  2009 Backpacker Magazine Gear Guide! 

Our Jamaican-styled Peanut Porridge combines full-cream milk, ground peanuts, whole ground oats, coconut milk and Caribbean spice.  

Similar to what you might find served by an island street-vendor - it's more of a thickened beverage than a "bowl of porridge" – the ultimate quick pick-up and go breakfast in a mug!

    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.

    I will say that I added way too much water as it wasn't even close to being filling as others mentioned. The additional water made it an amazing morning drink though and definitely a great way to start the day. I feel like if I added the required amount of water and used this as a meal I'd definitely be left wanting more rather than satisfied. Will definitely buying more in the near future for upcoming backpacking trips.

    Very tasty, but second the recommendation from others to start with less water (maybe half what it calls for) and add if necessary. Excellent flavor and I would buy again.

    By far this is my favorite breakfast. The combinations of unique flavors and richness really hit the spot in the morning with coffee. But the best part is watching a chipmunk enjoy the little cinnamon stick that I discard into the fire ring (I know, my bad). Tip: adding nuts, granola or cereal make this a hardier meal.

    Just made this dish and it is a great substitute for oatmeal! Very tasty and the hunk of cinnamon is a great addition. Super easy to make. I can see myself taking this on a lot of crisp fall hikes in New England and staying warm after it. Definitely ordering more of these great little meals.

    I was tired of taking oatmeal on my hikes and decided to try a little something different. I tried the Jamaican Porridge, and holy mackerel, it was soooo tasty. It was lightly sweet with a texture that is slightly creamier than oatmeal. Loved the taste of cinnamon in the morning when you are in the middle of nowhere. Gave me the warm, fuzzes! I will definitely be ordering again on my next adventure.

    Pay attention to the ingredient list, people. Number one ingredient, "evaporated cane juice," is SUGAR. If you add the oat flour and whole oats together, sugar might go down to number 2, but still -- This product is not for me.
