Overall Rating:

On our way up to the top of China Hat Mountain, we decided to take an early afternoon break at an established campground. Some of us at OutdoorFoodLab have a seriousness sweet tooth and are constantly looking for ways to fill it.

Enter Alpineaire Three Berry Crumble! We absolutely love berries and baked goods and we really looking forward to this treat! Sadly, we didn’t find this overly sugary mess to taste, or even approximate, a berry crumble.

Preparation

Preparation

Start by removing the oxygen absorber and the small package of “crumble” from the bag. Next, pre-mix the dry ingredients. After the water is done boiling add ¾ cup or simply fill up the bag to the “4” line on the side and give it all a good stir. Let stand 10 minutes to rehydrate, then sprinkle the “crumble” onto the top of the berries. Just to be clear, we are using the quotations around “crumble” ironically.

PROS:
  • Water fill mark on side of bag.

CONS:
  • No instruction to mix dry ingredients.
  • Very sticky cleanup.

Taste

Taste

While the package of Alpineaire Three Berry Crumble did satisfy our collective sweet tooth, it was an extremely small portion of a syrupy, overly sugared mess with an unidentifiable texture. This did not resemble a traditional crumble in any way. It was closer to finely crushed Oreo’s sprinkled over a chewy mix of half rehydrated fruit. Alpineaire missed the mark with this one.

PROS:

CONS:
  • Didn’t fully rehydrate.
  • Too much sugar.
  • Slimy texture.
  • Small portion.
