This was great! It was the best treat after a day of hiking. It's not too sweet, but sweet enough. It has crunch (the croutons added a great texture), worth its weight in my backpack.

by Brad Lindstrom
Tasted really good! I really didn’t care for the ingredient list. An astounding amount of artificial flavors and colors will make a lot of people take a moment of pause.

by Thomas Jessup
Super easy and really good. I am buying two next time for our fall trip. Thanks!

by Jeff M
Tastes excellent with rich banana flavor. Listed here as a dessert but works great as a no-cook breakfast.

by Jared Brown
Super fast, extremely tasty and I gave it a slight boost with a shot of Grand Marnier I packed for the trip. It was delicious before the shot for those that are interested in the product as is.

by Haven S
Just gave this a taste test at home. Wow! I really didn't know what to expect, but I can't imagine it tasting better! Easy to mix, thickens up nicely, and is definitely a good sized serving. Delicious!

by Steve A
Well this is definitely banana pudding! Great texture, easy to make, just dump the water n aand mix it up add in toastees and coconut and voila. Makes a great snack/dessert out on the trail, others will be jealous. Now how about some pistachio pudding, mmm!,

This isn’t health food. By any means. It is though pretty darn delicious! It’s creamy, is bananariffic in flavor, and the cake croutons are not shareable. Cold water and 10 minutes are all that is between you and dessert.

If you’re bananas for bananas, you’re gonna love this easy, vegetarian dessert mix. Rich and creamy, and topped with crispy cake bits and toasted coconut, it preps up quick and easy for a fantastic in-camp treat whenever you have a craving for something sweet. One packet makes a very large single serving, packed with calories and carbs. Our tasters found a little to go a long way, so they recommend dividing this out into two or three smaller servings, or sharing with campmates.
