What's new at Outdoor Herbivore? If you are looking to taste something different in your backpacking food, you are in luck! We're currently updating products based on your reviews from 2019 and will also be introducing new menu items in 2020. Here is a look at our latest offerings for the 2019-2020 hiking season.
New packaging is rolling out on a per-product basis (as of May 2020). You may receive some meals in the original packaging and other meals in the new packaging until everything has been thoroughly tested and transitioned.
Our new packaging is a plastic lined paper pouch that is waterproof and safe for boiling water. You can now rehydrate the meal inside of the pouch.
If you like cheese and veggies, you absolutely have to try Pack-it Primavera! Pasta and garden vegetables, including peas, green beans, kale, tomato and carrot in a cheesy garlic sauce.
Updated Products for 2020 based on Feedback from 2019
Several customers have asked if we could add another vegetable to our cheddar macs to provide a more complete meal. We've started by adding flaked organic Lacinato Kale to our gluten free recipe. We think you will love the results!
