Ingredients:

Vanilla Custard (dextrose, sugar, modified food starch [tapioca], sodium phosphates, calcium sulfate, natural and artificial flavor, salt, xanthan gum, emulsifier blend [nonfat dry milk, mono and diglycerides], yellow 5, yellow 6), Chocolate Fudge (corn syrup, water, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated coconut oil, whey, cocoa [processed with alkali], less than 2% of: modified corn starch, nonfat dry milk, calcium caseinate, salt, disodium phosphate, potassium sorbate [preservative], artificial flavor, hydroxylated soy lecithin, natural flavors), Cake Croutons (sugar, enriched wheat flour [wheat flour, ferrous sulfate, niacin, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid], eggs, butter, water, modified corn starch, soybean oil, palm oil, whey, emulsifiers [propylene glycol monoesters, mono & diglycerides, sodium stearoyl lactylate, soy lecithin], salt, nonfat milk, wheat gluten, leavening [sodium bicarbonate, sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate], egg whites, sodium caseinate, natural & artificial flavors, xanthan gum, locust bean gum, guar gum, soy flour), Whole Milk, Toasted Coconut (coconut, sugar, dextose, salt), Pure Vanilla

Mix, layer, repeat, eat. This dessert is as delicious as it is fun to make: Alternate spoonfuls of cold-water-prep pudding, drizzles of chocolate fudge frosting and sprinkles of sweet, croutonlike vanilla "toastees". The two-serving packet packet provides generous helpings - easily enough for four hikers after a satisfying dinner, say testers.

    This was really good! It had multiple textures, which is nicer than just pudding texture. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I prepared it in a cup, rather than the pouch it comes in. Desserts tend to be messy, even with a long spoon.

    We shared this dessert among 5 people which was plenty after a good dinner. One person in our group said they didn't really like Boston Cream pies but was interested in a taste. One taste? No way! He loved it!

    This dessert is amazing! Tried it at the end of a 7 mile 3,700 ft elevation hike and boy did I need the calories. Taste is amazing, easy to prepare, but it is a two stage process. On a normal day I could have easily split it in two for sharing and still have been satisfied. Will definitely order again.

    WOW, you did it again. This was an OUTSTANDING, dessert. I was sampling a few of the meal items and grab this one as a dessert, (freeze-dried ice cream was never an option, but great when visiting the Air and Space Museum when I was 10.) This dessert will exceed your expectation for freezed-dried backcountry desserts. Everything about it was GREAT!!

    Mix, layer, repeat, eat. This dessert is as delicious as it is fun to make: Alternate spoonfuls of cold-water-prep pudding, drizzles of chocolate fudge frosting and sprinkles of sweet, croutonlike vanilla "toastees". The two-serving packet packet provides generous helpings - easily enough for four hikers after a satisfying dinner, say testers.

      This was really good! It had multiple textures, which is nicer than just pudding texture. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I prepared it in a cup, rather than the pouch it comes in. Desserts tend to be messy, even with a long spoon.

      We shared this dessert among 5 people which was plenty after a good dinner. One person in our group said they didn't really like Boston Cream pies but was interested in a taste. One taste? No way! He loved it!

      This dessert is amazing! Tried it at the end of a 7 mile 3,700 ft elevation hike and boy did I need the calories. Taste is amazing, easy to prepare, but it is a two stage process. On a normal day I could have easily split it in two for sharing and still have been satisfied. Will definitely order again.

      WOW, you did it again. This was an OUTSTANDING, dessert. I was sampling a few of the meal items and grab this one as a dessert, (freeze-dried ice cream was never an option, but great when visiting the Air and Space Museum when I was 10.) This dessert will exceed your expectation for freezed-dried backcountry desserts. Everything about it was GREAT!!
