Mountain House – Raspberry Crumble

Add to compare

Overall Rating:

It’s always a delight to have dessert on a mountain. After summiting Mount Ida in Rocky Mountain National Park, we decided to put Mountain House’s Raspberry Crumble to the test.

Preparation was simple, but still involved multiple packages, something the competition often doesn’t require. The raspberries (they’re real!) rehydrated fully, and the crunchy cookie topping was a great touch. The taste was a bit below average, but the fact that you can serve this meal both hot and cold is a great touch. But overall, this luxury item won’t be making it back into our packs anytime soon.

Preparation

Preparation

Preparation for this Raspberry Crumble isn’t difficult, but it does result in multiple pieces of packaging to hike out. After removing the two included packages (one for the raspberries, the other for the cookie topping), you simply rehydrate the berries with hot water, adding the cookie crumble on top after serving.

Our testers found it fun to make a dessert on top of a mountain, but found Mountain House’s Apple Crisp slightly superior.

Taste

Taste

While we were surprised at the quality of the raspberries after rehydration, this still tastes like a cheap imitation of the real thing. Compare that to Backpacker Pantry’s Pad Thai, which our testers found tasted better than some restaurant-quality versions.

It might be a novelty to have dessert on the trail, but this will likely be the worst raspberry crumble of your life.
