Even a hard-to-please sweets fan says these 10-minute treats have a “texture better than any instant cheesecake I’ve ever made at home.” Lemon, pumpkin, and strawberry flavors all come with a salty-sweet gingersnap crust that you can layer into a dish for the best presentation—or sprinkle on top if you’re eating from the bag.

As a general rule, I don’t believe in dessert... my backpacking nightcaps had traditionally been limited to picking the M&Ms out of my GORP. All that changed with the Packit Gourmet Cheesecakes. Packit describes the prep as “Super EZ,” and that’s exactly right. All you need to add is a cup of cold water, ten minutes, and - voila - instant deliciousness. When sampling the flavors at Torrey Pines State Reserve, we were consistently confounded by the comparable consistency and flavor to cheesecake made at home.

It makes NO sense whatsoever how these are so delicious. All you need to know is the first time I opened the pack on the trail, the second the smell hit the air my best friend snapped his neck to my direction and said “what is THAT?!” Very sharable as it can be a bit much for one person, unless you have the mightiest of sweet tooth. I can promise you’ll try to eat the whole thing yourself, though. These are now required for my teenage son to go on backpacking trips with me. He simply won’t come if I’m out. The cheesecakey deliciousness is enough leverage to make a teenager drop his gaming controller and trek 9 miles up a mountain with his old man. Just do yourself a favor and order some and be prepared to sit by the campfire, after the tent is up, bathed in love and admiration from the hiking party for bringing this small pack of glory.
I made this at home because I broke my foot and can't hike or drive right now. I was jonesing for something sweet the night before last and so I whipped up a batch of the strawberry cheesecake. Then I fell asleep. Thankfully I had put it in the fridge to get it extra cold. It wasn't until the next afternoon that I remembered it was there and when I opened it up, holy crap, absolutely delicious. It was extremely firm, much firmer than I had anticipated which was great. The ginger snap topping was perfect and much better than a regular cookie crust would have been. I'm definitely partial to those cookies. I don't have anything negative to say about this. Even though I haven't eaten the other desserts that I've purchased from you, based on this one I went and purchased more of all of them just now. Whether you are backpacking, camping, or just want to make this at home, it's worth it. The whole packet was too much for me to eat at one time so I separated it into two portions and I'm now eating the last one. Because it is sweet and rich it's definitely shareable. I think when people talk about the texture of these desserts they're not letting them set up enough and possibly the refrigeration that I used might have helped. Maybe adding a tad less water might have helped them as well. You can always add more water but you can't take it away is my motto when it comes to making these backpacking meals. I've been spreading the news about this company and their delicious products. My only wish was that they would have the option for a longer shelf life on some of them like Mountain House does because I know a lot of people who are prepping who would love to purchase this but have kept themselves from doing so because of the shelf life. As far as taste is concerned though I think this is at the top with just a couple of other companies being up there with them. Good job guys.
just add water
