Fairly good flavor, impressive considering it's freeze dried. Very easy to prepare. Light weight makes carrying easier if you don't factor in the water, but also no weight from a metal can. My main concern with this and similar products by this brand is the low calorie count, which may necessitate bringing additional food depending on your diet. I however cannot say that I'm anything close to a nutrition expert, so take that with a grain of salt. This was also a bit pricey for my taste.
