frequently asked questions
We tried the cheese spread, but maybe due to the low temperatures (40-ies) it didn't come out as well as I thought. The cheese didn't become spreadable, it stayed loose and chunky. I'd suggest using luke warm water when you're camping in colder temperatures and I also like the idea of adding mayonnaise, to make it more of a spread. It's a high quality product but needs some seasonal tweaking.Also, I'd like to suggest to make short, wide bags instead of tall bags, especially with the bean dip it was getting very messy to scoop it out of the bag. I'll review this and the bean dip and insulated bag in my next blog post https://moniquedicarlo.wordpress.com/ as well as in a video http://ow.ly/uEtY306DaKq
Awesome, awesome, awesome. I was really surprised at how good this was and how easy it is to make, I would serve this for family and friends at home it was so good.
We tried out the many beans salad and the cheese spread today. Impressive! Never before has any prepackaged food tasted better than what I've made myself. Great job! Just put in another order. Yummy!
Not quite as creamy as the chicken salad, but our crew loved the tangy kick of this spread for lunch.
