Just a quick post to let you all know about a cool 'food find' as Sarah would say. My wife just picked up a bunch of individual serving size packets of Archer Farms granola breakfast cereals at our local Target store. They were on sale at 50% off ($0.48) each. That's a great price for a ready-made and nutritional trail breakfast. I don't know if this is as good as my home-made hot granola, but I'll let you know.
Bonus: They come in a sturdy foil bag that has a flat bottom to let the packets stand upright. So when you're on the trail all you need to do is snip off the top, add some powdered milk and pour in the desired amount of hot water, leave stand for a minute and enjoy!
Each package is a full serving, unlike other dehydrated meal packets that actually have 2 servings per pouch. So this makes it super easy to deal with on the trail. Has anyone else tried Archer Farms granola or any other pre-pacakged granola cereals?
